About the Position:

Do you have a passion for organization and order? When you see a messy desk, do you compulsively want to organize it? If you answered yes, then De Alba Bakery wants you. Our business can’t run if the behind-the-scenes operations aren’t progressing smoothly, and a great personal assistant is essential for ensuring that this happens effortlessly.

We began as a small operation in a kitchen in Mexico where our grandmother first learned to cook tortillas, and grew through hard work and determination to the four-location chain in southern Texas that we are today. We are looking for an individual who is just as hard working and efficient as our grandmother was all of those years ago when she began making tortillas in her kitchen – as hardworking as our entire team is today.

We are looking for someone who is organized, efficient and a great multi-tasker who keeps a cool head in fast-paced environments. Most importantly, we’re looking for someone who will thrive in our de la familia work environment and help support the De Alba Bakery company culture.

What are we looking for?

  • A candidate who is fluent in Spanish and English and has a love of Mexican traditions and the de la familia De Alba commitment.
  • Someone who has strong communication skills and is an excellent listener.
  • A candidate who has experience with Microsoft Office, Excel and other office technologies, including digital filing systems.
  • All applicants must have a valid driver’s license.

What this position entails:

  • Managing and arranging appointments.
  • Answering the phones, taking messages and returning calls.
  • Writing emails, transcribing notes, faxing and copying important documents.
  • Running necessary errands for managers and the De Alba team.

How to Apply:

If you are the right candidate, please fill out the provided form with your resume and qualifications. Remember, we are looking for a strong individual with a sense of familia and superb organizational and communication skills. We look forward to welcoming you to our team!
