We've got great news to share!  We have a new location in Chesapeake coming soon in 2021 and are looking for a crew to join us at our new location.  If you love to interact with people, get excited about books, movies and music, and want to join our team then we'd love to hear from you (must be 18 or older to apply).  Successful candidates will start training at our Norfolk and Virginia Beach locations.  

Download the application or apply in person at either the Norfolk or the Virginia Beach location.    All applications must be accompanied by a cover letter and a resume.  Applications without cover letters and resumes will not be considered.  Email your application, cover letter and resume to  BookExchange757@gmail.com.

WHAT IT TAKES TO BE A PART OF OUR TEAM

Enthusiasm and lots of it!  Plus, love for books (if you don't like books then this job is not going to be enjoyable for you).  Knowledge of movies and music is a plus.  We, as booksellers, don't read on the job because there is always something to do.  When there is a downtime, you will see us bustling around shelving, restocking, organizing, cleaning, etc.  

Bookseller qualities we look for are:

  • Detail-oriented & a knack for organization. 

  • Friendly and positive attitude.  

  • Ability to provide exceptional customer service.  (From the moment we open our door, we are always helping customers find what they need and answering questions about our trade policy and inventory).

  • Knowledgeable about books, movies, and music.  (We constantly get asked for recommendations so a broad knowledge of books, movies, and music is preferred).

  • Ability to lift 50+ lbs because books are heavy!.

  • Able to stand for long hours.  We are constantly moving around and rarely have time to sit.  

  • Computer skills.  Basic knowledge of Microsoft Office (Excel and Word) is required. 

  • Previous retail experience is not required but preferred.

  • Flexible availability.  We try to accommodate everyone's schedule but we are open 7 days a week so the ability to work some weekends is strongly desirable.
