Corso's Cookies
Smiling is a prerequisite for the job, according to Tina Corso Hess, owner of Corso's Cookies.
Where the jobs are: Syracuse, N.Y.

When owner Tina Corso Hess lists her hours spent playing with an easy bake oven as part of her previous experience, you can bet that Corso's Cookies is pretty open to job applicants from all over the map. After weathering six months of slow sales, Corso's deals with third-party resellers like ProFlowers and Amazon.com have kept the business afloat and now demand is increasing as the holiday season approaches.

Those interested in becoming a packager or decorator should come with a positive attitude and big dreams, according to Tina's husband and business partner, Pete. "Smiling is part of the job requirement," he said. For now, the positions pay $8-$15 an hour but there's no telling what the future has in store. "There's that chance that we're going to be that next big cookie company," Pete said.
