Full-Time and Part-Time Sales Associates with an Environmental Mission
EcoBuilding Bargains is the largest used building materials store in New England and we are growing. We need a few Sales Associates – full and part-time – to join our dedicated and hard-working team to assist EcoBuilding Bargains in achieving its mission. We help keep thousands of tons of trash out of landfills by making salvaged building materials, furnishings and appliances available to people looking for quality bargains. The store is open Tuesdays through Saturdays, 9- 6:00 (until 5:00 in winter).
As a Sales Associate, you will sell re-used and surplus materials including cabinets, architectural salvage, building materials, doors, windows, appliances, plumbing supplies, lighting fixtures, and furniture. To do this well, you will need to be knowledgeable about our products and excited about what we do so you can help our customers find solutions for their projects in our varied and ever-changing inventory. You will also work at the cash register handling cash and credit cards; assist in pricing, stocking and displaying inventory; and assist with loading and unloading materials from trucks and/or customer’s vehicles. You will help maintain an inviting, safe and clean working environment for staff members and the public.
You will need certain skills in order to be successful in retail sales. You should be hard working, motivated, and reliable, and have excellent communication skills. High School diploma/GED – college degree preferred. We are looking for 2 years retail sales or customer service experience and 1 year or equivalent knowledge of value and use of home improvement materials. Bilingual English/Spanish preferred. You must be able to lift 25-50 pounds regularly and move freely (including twisting, bending, kneeling, squatting, etc.) to perform job duties. You will need to operate pallet jack, dolly and other moving equipment.
The full-time positions offer paid time off and excellent benefits. The part-time position will be 12:00 to 5:00 on three days – Friday and Saturday plus one other day. Please email a cover letter with your resume to email@example.com, or stop by the store to fill out an application. You may include military service assignments and any verified work performed on a volunteer basis. EcoBuilding Bargains is an enterprise of the Center for EcoTechnology, an equal opportunity employer.
