Retail Sales Associate for Natural Pet Store

Prairie Dog Pet Mercantile

This is a Part-time position in Spokane, WA posted November 21, 2021.

Part-Time Retail Associate (Full-time Potential)

Company Description

Prairie Dog Pet Mercantile is a locally-owned, woman-operated holistic pet supply store with locations in Kendall Yards and on the South Hill.

Our team is hardworking, humble, and seriously passionate about pet nutrition.

We’re looking for a part-time retail associate to join us for the long haul — this position has the potential to become a full-time salary position.

Job Description

You’ll be the one who greets our customers — and sometimes their pets 😉 — with a smile when they walk in the door.

They’ll rely on you to suggest products that genuinely enhance their pets’ quality of life, so it’s critical that you build an in-depth working knowledge of the merchandise we sell.

On a day-to-day basis, you can expect to:
Proactively greet and assist customers

Run the point of sale system (iPads and computers)

Answer the phone

Receive orders

Stock merchandise

Keep the store neat and tidy

Get to know awesome customers

Meet lots of dogs…and some cats, too!
What We Need From You

First and foremost, we’re looking for reliability.

You’ll work most Saturdays and occasional Sundays, with some meetings and trainings in the morning or evening.

We’re a small business, so our team members’ schedules change from time to time.

We’re also big on commitment.

This isn’t a big-box retail job: Our customers are incredibly loyal and they place a lot of trust in us, so we make it a priority to listen actively so we can hook them up with exactly the products they need.

Because this has the potential to become a full-time salary-track position, previous retail experience is a must.

We’re looking for all the usual skills — punctuality, proficiency with computers, ability to stand/reach/kneel/lift 50 pounds/do a jig — but we’re also looking for initiative.

We’re looking for someone who has at least a little basic knowledge around human or animal nutrition, and is eager to learn more.

Finally, we’re looking for someone who fits with our existing team.

We’re a pretty self-motivated bunch, so if there’s something that needs doing, you won’t catch us waiting around to do it.

We know the value of laughing at ourselves, and we genuinely enjoy solving problems together.

What You’ll Get From Us

You’ll have a stable job at a fully-established independent small business that’s continued to grow, even in the challenging economy of the past year.

Most of our employees have worked here between two and 10 years.

You’ll be paid fairly for the work you do.

You’ll also receive an employee discount on merchandise, as well as opportunities to test out new products for free.

Based on initiative, performance, and fit, you’ll be eligible to move into a full-time salary role (with an appropriate raise, of course)!

You’ll become a trusted source of advice for loyal, curious customers who want the very best for their pets.

You’ll learn a ton about pet care, behavior, and animal nutrition — and you’ll get to put that information to good use every day.

Next Steps

Please print your resume and cover letter and bring them to our South Hill location by November 24th.
