We are currently hiring fit consultants / sales associates.
Birkenstock Village, is a family-owned “sit and fit” shoe store specializing in premium comfort shoes, socks, insoles, and handbags. We hire smart people with diverse backgrounds and work experiences, including a former forklift operator, a sushi chef, and a poet.
What makes our staff special is they all have the following attributes:
- patience, intelligence, and compassion
- problem-solvers who take initiative
- enjoy a fast-paced work environment
- able to remember, recall, and communicate facts and benefits about our products
- receptive to instruction and critique
- enjoy working directly with people to address their needs and challenges.
We offer products that you will feel good about selling. You will be working in a safe, clean, well-designed environment with a committed, caring, and motivated staff. We work as a team rather than for commission.
We also offer training on our POS system and our products.
Outstanding customer service is our trademark.
This is a VERY physical job. It involves daily light cleaning, lifting up to 30 lbs, kneeling, climbing ladders, constantly on the move to get new shoes for customers. You must be comfortable with hands-on fitting and helping people in pain.
We are looking for part-time and full-time positions and you will have a regular schedule you can rely on. Our day begins at 9:35 am and ends at ~ 6:15 pm. Applicants must be able to work some weekend days.
