If you are focused on one of the following, please continue to read below: excited to get back into the work force, searching for the perfect part-time/full time job (depending on responsibilities you are great at!) and can head into our office in Parsippany on Route 10 OR if you want a new, fun, never boring position working in an office with a successful group of 14 energetic women, we are searching for that “A player” to join us.

Managing Stackable Sensations University. This is an optional degree offered to all employees as an added benefit for personal and professional growth. Each component is managed through a simple spreadsheet. Example: Set up Rosetta Stone for the language arts portion-everyone will learn a different language. Set up with LinkedIn to take different courses of interest to the individual employee. Set up a give-back volunteering option ( i.e., Rainy Day Hero, Building a house for Habitat for Humanity).
