Powell's Books for Home and Garden, located next to our general bookstore on 37th and SE Hawthorne, is looking for a new bookseller to join our team!
This position will focus on the following:
*Sincere, genuine, above and beyond customer service.
*Cashiering: a fast-paced opportunity for micro-connections!
*Stocking/Shelving books: See all the brand new and used books as they arrive!
*Merchandising and restocking gift displays - Our store is visually appealing and super shop-able and we work hard to keep it that way!
*Making thoughtful recommendations to customers - Even if you aren't an expert chef, gardener, or craft-person, we make it easy for employees to make recommendations.
*Concierge-type services - helping customers find their way around the Hawthorne district and Portland.
The successful candidates for these positions will have excellent customer service skills, be friendly, motivated, and able to balance efficiency with accuracy. Experience with high-volume retail, tourism, or merchandising is a plus. Dependability is a must.
An interest or knowledge of subjects carried at the store (Cooking, crafting, gardening, DIY) is highly desirable, but not necessary (microwave cooking is still cooking!).
The schedule is regular (won't change from week to week). We don't have 'clopens' and closing shifts really do end when they are scheduled to (no staying late to clean up, etc).
This schedule will be:
Mondays from 1pm - 9pm
Thursdays from 5pm - 9pm
Saturdays from 1pm - 9pm
The wage for this position is $13.50 per hour with a generous employee discount on merchandise and other perks!
