WHAT IT TAKES TO BE A PART OF OUR TEAM
Enthusiasm and lots of it! Plus, a 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 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.
