Farm Store Sales Associate
We are looking for a passionate and energetic individual to add to our Farm Store Team.
Our Team Members participate in every aspect of running the Farm Store. While our store may be small, it is a bustling enterprise that requires dedication, focus, and enthusiasm to run properly. We begin our day about an hour before we open and often stay 30 minutes after closing. You will keep busy talking to and ringing up customers, restocking products, keeping up on the milk supply and answering emails. Weekends can be particularly hectic when the weather is good and folks flock to walk the property, stock up on the week’s groceries and enjoy the Farm Tour on Saturdays.
Team members will need to be good multitaskers, prioritizing excellent customer service in person, via email and over the phone. We are often doing several things at once, including but not limited to:
Restocking frozen meat, milk, vegetables and a variety of food products.
Keeping track of milk levels throughout the day.
Restocks store products throughout the day and is able to lift up to 40lbs.
Checking in, unpacking and inventorying orders.
Is comfortable standing most of the work shift with limited time for sitting.
Completes store opening and closing tasks as assigned, including washing milk tank, cleaning store, restocking products and closing out the cash register.
Other tasks as assigned.
Applicants must be 18 years of age at start of position and able to lift at least 40 lbs. to shoulder height (boxes of eggs, containers of milk), and have a flexible work schedule that would include some nights, weekends and holidays. While most of the shift would take place in the farm store, sales associates are exposed to cold (walk in cooler/freezer) and hot temperatures (occasional customer support outside). We will begin training immediately on a few short shifts (10-12 hours a week) with hours increasing as we approach May.
Ideal candidates are self-motivated, are able to work independently and as part of the store team, have willingness and interest in learning about the products sold in the store especially ones produced by All Grass Farms. As well as interest in local food and an excitement to share that information with our customers. Retail experience is preferred though not necessarily required.
Compensation $10-$12/hr. based on experience.
Hours – 10-12 hours beginning immediately and increasing as needed in May.
