More Than A Retail Sales Associate

Career-minded, Compassionate, Ethical, Fun-Loving Individual of Management Potential. We are filling a career position that rewards financially and personally, has a set schedule so you can have a great quality of life, has significant short and long-term growth potential and allows you to help people look and feel better.

We require intelligent, articulate, personable, responsible individuals who are looking to find a position that is so much more rewarding than “just a job.” If you have the right people skills and work ethics, we will teach you the rest. We offer paid training in sales, business management and pedorthics – the study of biomechanics, anatomy and physiology of feet and gait. The learning curve is steep and intense as the work we do literally changes the lives of our clients. Applicants must be able to deal with feeling completely inept and frustrated during the apprentice period although your (& our) good sense of humor will help you through and help you achieve great success.

Far from a traditional retail environment, we specialize in creating customized solutions to our clients’ specific needs. Our selling environment is very unique. Individualized selling based on clients’ unique needs requires sales team members with exceptional interpersonal skills, an ability to convey complex concepts and an ability to provide exceptional customer service. A strong sales background is preferred but not mandatory. Our best associates are also the best listeners.

As a part of our solutions-based offerings, we sell custom and over-the-counter arch supports (orthotics) and a wide variety of foot-related items. Additionally, we sell a variety of shoes from athletic, casual and dress shoes to specialty shoes that improve posture and relieve joint and back pain. Most of the shoes in our store are hand made in Europe by craftsmen and made from the finest materials. We are one of the largest retailers of Think! shoes in the United States. Our shoes are some of the most gorgeous shoes anywhere! We utilize state-of-the-art technology to create the most advanced and most comfortable custom arch supports available.

Our clientele is diverse, ranging from athletes to soccer moms, to medical professionals, retail workers, teachers and others who spend the majority of their day on their feet to people with problems with their feet, knees, hips or backs, as well as those seeking great looking footwear that actually feels good.

We are seeking a part-time, with the potential to be full-time, associate who is energetic, congenial and a terrific relationship-building person who enjoys working in a highly interactive environment. The person who will be most successful in our environment will have a terrific sense of humor and incredible empathy and sometimes-compassion. Our store seeks to provide the most amazing retail experience anywhere. In the age of online shopping, customer experience is king. Combined with exceptional interpersonal skills, our associates must be creative, team oriented, patient, and motivated to help people solve their problems. The job offers higher than normal hourly pay, plus some commission, in order to attract/retain quality individuals. The hours and working conditions are excellent. Management positions are also available commensurate with the person’s desire, potential and demonstrated success. No footwear experience is necessary, retail experience is a plus! Paid training is provided.

Why this sales opportunity is better than all the others:

1) Significantly better income for retail.

2) A set schedule so you can have a life.

3) The opportunity to advance quickly into a leadership/management position with a fast-growing company catering to an under-served market!

4) Thrive in a fast action environment where having fun and working as a member of a close-knit team results in high paychecks and low stress!

Hours: Flexible Part time hours around our busiest times of the week. This will include some Saturday hours. (a set schedule, no rotation, unless requested).

Requirements during the training phase you will be required to learn utilizing on-line training modules, work hands on with the Certified Pedorthist, help restock inventory while learning our extensive lines of stock. You will learn our Point of Sale system as well as ordering and receiving procedures.

General duties include store set-up in the morning and closing duties at night.

All associates greet clients as they arrive at our store and seat them while offering refreshments, conduct a thorough assessment of the client’s feet and gait (the way the client walks or runs), and measure both feet – sitting & standing.

Based on information gained, recommend a complete integrated solution which helps alleviate pain (foot, ankle, knee, hip and/or lower back), and/or enhances athletic performance, meets unusual fitting requirements, or promotes general well-being, comfort and fashion requirements. The employee will be highly trained to accomplish the above or recognize when the client should be referred to another specialist. While our biomechanical knowledge is truly what sets our store apart, fashion will always be an important part of the solution.

Employee will complete the transaction by ringing up the sale and ordering any product (if not in-stock) that is required. We cultivate lasting relationships with our clients and find it rewarding to have the opportunity to enhance their lives with fit, function and fashion. This may end (often) with a big hug.

Employees are also responsible for receiving and tagging new merchandise, having fun with their peers and helping others. Please email or drop off resume in person.
