Seasonal Retail Sales Associate needed for high volume, fast paced fly shop.
Bozeman Family Fly Shop is looking for 2 new teammates, one full time and one part time employee to work on the sales floor this summer. The ideal candidate will have a good mix of both fly fishing/tying and customer service experience. We need someone with a flexible schedule, who can work up to 40 hours a week including weekends and some holidays. On a daily basis you will be required to interact with the public, greeting every person with respect and professionalism that walks through the door, regardless of their fly fishing experience. You will need to be able to adapt to a variety of personalities, have conversations with strangers all the time, and be able to convert those conversations into retail sales.
The ideal candidate should be passionate about fly fishing, have previous retail/customer service experience, have a friendly and outgoing personality, be reliable, responsible and possess the willingness to work. A strong knowledge of our local fisheries is ideal, but we are willing to work with the right candidate that might be new to Bozeman, with the expectation that you will learn our local waters quickly. Whether before work in the morning, or afterwards into the evening, we schedule in a way that you will be able to fish every day of the week during the summer months. You do not need to be a complete expert, but we are looking for someone who is passionate and involved with the fly fishing/tying community and lifestyle. You will need to give accurate information about fishing locations and access sites, tying materials/techniques used in common fly patterns, current insect activity, and be able to recommend retail products that will enhance the customer’s experience on the water or at the vice.
The ideal candidate must be able to work full time from early May through August, with an opportunity for the right person to possibly work later into the season.
