Part-time retail sales and marketing for modern design showroom
SITTE specializes in modern, occasional chairs. We work with large manufacturers, independent artisans, furniture restoration specialists, and local consignors to offer a unique selection of chairs and home goods. This is a new and growing business and we are seeking a “jack of all trades” when it comes to getting things done. We are looking for a long-term, enthusiastic, customer service-oriented, honest, and genuine person to join this small team.
The retail sales consultant will work on the showroom floor and behind the scenes on a wide variety of projects. Key tasks include: assisting customers in the store, building and maintaining relationships with the trade (interior designers), managing social media content, tracking and following up on orders, receiving inventory, entering data, and helping to plan and orchestrate events.
Our ideal candidate is a furniture enthusiast with a passion for design and interiors. We need a person with a “get it done” attitude who takes initiative to take on projects, assemble furniture, help keep the showroom organized and spotlessly clean, and isn’t afraid to roll up their sleeves or get on a ladder to fix and rearrange things in the showroom. Must have a diligent work ethic, excellent written and oral communication skills, strong sense of organization, knack for problem-solving, attention to detail, and be able to lift up to 75lbs.
High-end showroom or retail experience, or someone with a Design / Build background preferred.
Hours of operation are Tuesday-Saturday 10-6 and Sunday 11-5. We are looking for approximately 16-20 hours per week, schedule may be flexible to accommodate school or other part time work but weekend and occasional evening availability is a must.
