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

Us: We’re a small, family owned, outdoor shop 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. Your appreciation for tears ranges from Fears to From a Clown (was that too much? translation: you appreciate a variety of excellent music). You love helping people. You’re patient and cool under pressure. Teaching someone something new makes you feel all warm and fuzzy inside. Ideally you’ve worked in sales/retail before and have some experience. 

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. 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.
