The C Shop is "A Whale of a Place to Work!"

The C Shop has employed Whatcom County teens and adults since the '70's. Multiple generations for some families with a family tradition of a first job at the candy shop. Our intent is to set a standard with a fun work environment while learning new skills that will serve us through life.

We pride ourselves on being an inclusive, safe, and fun job for teens and adults. We have competitive wages, sick leave accrual, and flexible scheduling. We are always accepting applications!

You must have reliable transportation, availability on evenings, weekends, and holidays, and a willingness to work hard. We train all job duties unless otherwise specified. Job descriptions are in the application form.
