Currently interviewing for:
Full Time Assistant Manager - East Passyunk
The Assistant Manager at our East Passyunk shop is a position with quite a bit of autonomy. Our goal is to place a really strong Assistant Manager at our original shop location to help create a vibrant employee culture there, and really steer that ship through daily coaching of the team. We expect an Assistant Manager there to take the lead on some new, bigger projects, such as philanthropy initiatives and other events, in the shop and in the community. Merchandising is also an important aspect that the Assistant Manager will take the lead on - we're looking for someone who will treat the shop as their own, and use our merchandising standards to not only keep that location looking fresh and consistent with our Collingswood location, but also pay attention to details.
Ideal candidates will be a customer service magician with a knack for making people feel special and have some managerial experience. Our floor team is the face of Occasionette, and the Assistant Manager is the head of this team at this location. In addition to helping shoppers find the perfect card or gift, ringing up purchases, gift wrapping for our customers and helping to ensure the shop looks its best every day, Assistant Managers will enforce our company standards for presentation and service. The Assistant Manager is a keyholder who assists the General Manager by helping to run general day to day operations, such as opening & closing responsibilities and works closely with our Inventory Manager to keep the shop stocked and running smoothly. A knack for visual merchandising and a willingness to learn our merchandising standards is ideal.
Applicants should be friendly, outgoing, have common sense and a sense of humor, with an enthusiasm for design, cards and gifts a plus. This position requires technical savvy with relevant point of sale software (square), experience with cash handling, with recent relevant leadership experience, or a natural flair for leadership. We expect all team members to be courteous, punctual and to be able to do simple math (like making change) without the aid of a calculator. This position is full time (approx 40 hours per week) and requires weekend availability. Compensation is commensurate with experience.
Interested candidates should fill out our online application here. We will contact you within 7 days - be prepared to wow us in your interview!
