Sales Associate / Instagram Storyteller
City: St. Louis Park, MN
Salary: $15/hour plus the opportunity to earn quarterly bonuses
Is this a remote / work from home position?: No
Max’s is a fine jewelry boutique, specializing in artisan made items. We also sell some gift items and items for the home, as well as fine specialty chocolates from around the world. Our jewelry sales make up more than 75% of our total sales volume. Our jewelry is unique to our customers given that it is not widely distributed in the Twin Cities or Minnesota and in that it is either made by the designer him/herself or by the small team of artisan jewelers with whom they work. None of the work is sent overseas to be made in a jewelry “factory”.
Part time employees will be scheduled for approximately 20-30 hours/week. Part time employees are required to work at least 2 Saturdays per month, and be able to work at least 2 closing shifts per week. Those closing the store typically leave between 6:30 – 7:00.
Qualifications or requirements
Anyone who will be considered for joining the Max’s team must be passionate about outstanding design and quality craftsmanship, and have experience in the broader arts and design industries. While this could include the jewelry industry, this is not a must. Other relevant industries/experience include: high-end/luxury clothing design or sales, home decor design or sales, photography or art gallery sales. Our sales associates must be interested in becoming highly knowledgeable about the products we sell and comfortable conveying product information to our customers. Consideration will be given to those with retail experience. A successful candidate is one who possesses a positive outlook and demeanor, self-confidence, and is a motivated self-starter. Max’s is focused on providing top-notch customer service/care to our guests. We sell on a team basis and all sales associates are required to work in a collaborative manner. Candidates to be considered must have excellent communication skills and be energetic and friendly. We pride ourselves on offering our guests a “no-pressure” environment.
In addition to sales, we also want this employee to work on some social media tasks. This employee will coordinate with our Instagram specialist to create messaging between Instagram posts and stories and will, specifically, be responsible for the creating/posting content via Instagram stories.
