The Position: Sales Associate (Part Time), Sales Associate (Part Time, Seasonal)
At a Glance: We are looking to grow our team for the Holiday season and have openings for two part time Sales Associates. We have availability for a Sales Associate for weekday shifts, working up to 20 hours per week, as well as weekend availability for a Seasonal Sales Associate for up to 10 hours per week.
Both positions have the potential for increased hours throughout November and December, as coverage needs dictate, and are expected to start mid to late October, with flexibility for the right candidate.
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. 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 to ensure the shop 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.
We are an equal opportunity employer with a great team, competitive hourly wage, and employee discount.
