Seasonal Retail Sales Associate
We are looking for a Part-Time Retail Sales Associate to join our team this holiday season at our booth at the Union Square Holiday Market. Previous retail experience is a plus, but it's important that you like our products, have a friendly and engaging personality and work well under pressure.

On a typical day, you will arrive 30 minutes before the market opens to prep and open the booth. During the day you'll make sales (via our Shopify POS on an iPad or iPhone) and keep an eye on stock. If working the afternoon shift, you'll straighten up the booth at the end of the day, send over to the office the list of inventory needed to restock, and close up. It's pretty straight-forward!

Initially you'll be working in the booth with Kalyn or another EP staff member until you get comfortable working on your own. The booth can get very busy! The most important thing is that our customers have a good experience with you and our products. The ideal candidate will be friendly, welcoming and will become knowledgeable about our product offerings. We aren't a hard sell brand; our products are colorful, fun and speak for themselves. However, we do believe in engaging with our customers and making them feel like friends.

Job Responsibilities Include:

  • Arriving on time;
  • Becoming skilled at using our POS system;
  • Paying attention to stock levels;
  • Engaging with customers

Position Requirements:

  • Retail sales experience preferred;
  • Self-starter;
  • Ability to work independently;
  • Ability to engage customers;
  • Good judgement;
  • Ability to think quickly;
  • Ability to manage different personalities;

Additional Details:

  • 3-4 days / week, about 20-25 hours / week
  • Flex hours
  • November 15 - December 24th
  • Market hours of operation: 11a-8p M-F; 10a-8p Saturday; 11a-7p Sunday
  • Must be located in NYC, Brooklyn or New Jersey

Our Company Culture:

  • Attention To Detail: The details matter, across all parts of the organization, from packaging orders to product imagery
  • Fun: We work hard, but we play hard too
  • Outcome-Oriented: Results-focused with strong performance
  • Stable: Traditional, stable, strong processes
