sewBoise, a bustling sewing business, seeks a 2nd part-time shop assistant. There's a lot of variety in the position. The assistants are expected to greet and help customers, tidy up, answer the phone, set appointments, ring up sales, steam dresses, schedule lessons, write social media posts and respond to e-mails, order supplies, run errands, organize the workspace, manage student enrollment for classes, help organize the workload for the sewing staff, take photos for marketing, and more!
The right assistant will be pleasant and organized, detail-conscious, have the ability and initiative to see what needs to be done and do it, and be a strong writer/communicator. Training is given, but experience working in a retail environment is helpful, as is the ability to do simple arithmetic relating to money. An interest in fashion, design, textiles, sewing, or entrepreneurship will make the position more exciting.
