Retail Sales Associate

Interested in sustainability and helping others live a less wasteful lifestyle? We are hiring a sales associate at our refill station located in scenic Topanga Canyon.

The day to day will include refilling customer's containers with home and body goods such as laundry detergent, shampoo, body wash, etc... all without creating unnecessary waste and packaging!

When it’s busy in the shop, it can get quite hectic! This requires someone detail-oriented, who can multi-task under pressure, all while being informative and friendly with customers.  During downtime, you will replenish our stock (which will require heavy lifting -- often 30-50lbs of weight), create content for social media, and do various tasks to ensure the store is running smoothly. 

This position includes 3-5 days a week including at least one weekend day. Shifts will be between 5-8 hours long. 

There is room to grow here as we are expanding into eCommerce, workshops, delivery, and so much more, but at the moment we really need someone who can be a dedicated retail associate.
