When we host in-store events, our booksellers work together to set up and break down the event space, including moving rolling shelving units and setting up and breaking down up to 200+ folding chairs. (Due to Covid-19 concerns, we are currently not hosting any in-store events.)
The ideal candidate is someone with a friendly demeanor who enjoys interacting with people, can successfully work on a multi-member team, and who loves to problem solve. Book industry experience and retail experience a plus. Must be available to work a combination of weekdays, nights, and weekends.
