Part-time Shop Assistant

 Full or part-time job opening / by freemanscreative Freeman-Lynde

This is a part-time position with weekend hours. We are currently looking for someone who can work around 15-20 hours a week- currently looking for Saturday and Sunday from 11-4 pm, with at least one weekday shift (1-6) as well. Pay starts at $15/hr along with a generous employee discount and PTO after 3 months.

Main responsibilities include assisting customers in selecting materials and patterns, cutting fabric and winding yarn, filling online orders via Shopify, answering questions via phone, and checking out customers. Employees also maintain cleanliness of the store, enter and label inventory, restock products, and other tasks as necessary. Employees do spend most shifts on their feet, and there is some lifting of boxes less than 50 pounds.

Ideal candidates have a working knowledge and interest in both sewing and either knitting or crochet.  Employees need to answer questions about yarn weights, match suitable fabric to patterns, and help customers select colors and designs that meet their needs. Employees should be self-directed, communicative, and detail oriented.

Candidates should enjoy meeting and talking to new people, and have a desire to help customers have a positive experience.  You do not need a background in retail, as we believe that if we are helping folks solve their problems, the selling part will take care of itself.  Patience and empathy go a long way towards providing a positive experience for customer and staff alike. We are building a community based on trust, respect, and fair treatment.

This position is ideal for someone who is enthusiastic and knowledgeable about handcraft, who enjoys keeping up with pattern releases and industry news, and who is excited to learn more about the field.  We look forward to meeting you!

June 2024- Interviews start June 3; applications accepted through 6/17
