Townsend Bertram & Company Outdoor Adventure Outfitters is currently accepting applications for part-time sales associates.

Us: We’re a small, family owned, adventure outfitter that’s been serving our community since 1988. We’re centrally located in the heart of Carrboro, in Historic Carr Mill. We live and breathe our five core values: adventure, quality, community, passion, and fun and hope you do too. At TB&C, we pride ourselves on carrying the best outdoor gear, both casual and technical, for any adventure. 

You: You’re an adventurer, defined as you like. You’re motivated and driven. You volunteer for new challenges without being asked. You’re a problem solver and an owner of your mistakes. You love helping people. You’re patient and cool under pressure. Teaching someone something new makes you feel all warm and fuzzy inside. You are stoked to be part of a community of outdoor enthusiasts passionate about keeping our wild places wild! Ideally you’ve worked in sales/retail before or have a background in customer service. 

The Job: Spend your day educating the good people of Carrboro about the latest and greatest outdoor gear. Part-time Sales Associates work between 15 and 40 hours a week. A minimum of 2 weekends a month and some holidays are a must. In addition to TB&C trainings, sales associates educate themselves on the latest products so that they can, in turn, teach our customers and help outfit them with the best gear for their adventures. When not working with customers the primary goal is keeping the shop looking so fresh and so clean. Folding ninja abilities and mad organizing skills are a bonus. We focus on creating experiences with our community. We seek individuals excited to make interesting and unique connections with our diverse community of customers as we value the experience a customer has over the amount of products they buy.
