Admin Assistant (Madison - Near East Side)

compensation: $10/hour paid via paypal
employment type: contract
telecommuting okay

About the job:

I run an ecommerce store. I'm hiring someone to help me process the return items we receive. All the returns are shirts and hats.

The daily tasks will look something like this:

- you drive to my office and pick up the returns for that day. (I'm on the near east side of Madison.)

- take the packages home

- open each one to confirm the contents, then make the update in our simple system

- once a week or so, take the products to Goodwill or St Vinny's (or a suitable charity) for donation

You'll be expected to provide a simple daily update to confirm the tasks are done.


You'll do this 4 - 6 days per week. It is a semi-flexible based on the volume of returns we receive.

Right now, the job will be 8 - 12 hours per week. As we get further into the holiday season, it may rise to 10 - 20 hours per week.

I expect this job to run at least until February. If you're great, I'll probably find more work for you.


You'll be paid $10/hr via paypal. I'll pay you weekly. To make sure this is all in accordance with the IRS, you'll need to submit a W9 form before first payment (


You will need your own laptop or computer. I'll show you how to use our returns processing system, which is quite simple.

We're ready to hire someone ASAP.
