Heck Yeah! We’re Hiring 

The Position: Sales Associate (Part Time)

At a Glance: We have immediate availability for a part time Sales Associate position. With the goal to develop the successful candidate into a Part-Time Key Holder, the role offers 12 – 18 hours per week, with the potential for increased hours throughout the fall and winter as coverage need dictates.

The Details: As the first point of contact for customers, this role involves providing exception customer service as well as help behind the scenes receiving, pricing, and stocking items. Additionally, you will help keep the shop clean and organized.

At our shops, Far + Wide and The Botanical Scene, we focus on handpicked beautiful, and often local, items for your home. We care about the products we stock and our customers do too; we are looking for someone who shares this passion for aesthetic, community, and small business.

Our team works closely together, between our two stores, to ensure the shops runs smoothly. From taking out the trash, to grabbing the door for a customer, to mopping the floor, we all chip in to ensure the work gets done. As part of this team, we are looking for someone who not only compliments our current team and can take direction, but can also work well independently and take the initiative to recognize when something needs doing without being asked.

What We Are Looking For: This role requires a friendly, outgoing, and approachable demeanor as well as the desire to go above and beyond to provide exceptional customer service. Strong interpersonal skills, organization, and attention to detail are key. Previous retail experience, cash management, and/or experience working with or caring for houseplants is an asset. Shifts may be at either of our locations and require weekend availability. Please note your availability in your application.

 

To apply please submit your resume and a brief cover letter outlining your interest in this role and availability to farandwidekamloops[@]gmail.com. We are looking to have the successful candidate start in early to mid September 2022 and screening and interviews will be conducted as applications are received. We therefore encourage those interested to apply as early as possible.

 Please no drop-ins or phone calls. Applications submitted via other means may not be considered.

Thank-you for your interest. 

We will do our best to follow up with all applicants.
