Five Stride Skate Shop Seasonal Sales Associate - Brooklyn

Five Stride, a quad roller skate shop, has immediate openings for a Seasonal Sales Associate position in our Brooklyn, NY retail shop beginning mid to late March.  The position will be consistently scheduled 12 hours per week  (2 shifts) with the potential to go up to 18 hours some weeks (3 shifts). This is a temporary, seasonal position through August 2023. We are an owner operated shop where all employees put in shared effort to keep the shop running. Our retail store is not a single task environment. In order to complete all that needs to get done daily (with customer sales being first priority), you will find yourself working on multiple tasks and assignments in a shift. Saturday shifts are required for this position, with flexibility for additional days.

Starting pay is  $20 per hour
We offer paid sick time, paid vacation, employee discount, and store credit.


Who are we? 

We are a bi-coastal roller skate shop with our flagship location in Brooklyn, NY and a second location in Portland, OR. We have a small core of staff and hire seasonal employees during our busiest months. We are all roller skaters of different disciplines who work closely when in the shop and respect each other's time when off the clock. We put in shared effort to ensure the shop runs smoothly and communicate effectively to support each other. Our business owners are based in Portland, OR and are very involved in shop operations. We have a full time Brooklyn Manager who oversees day to day operations at the BK shop and who manages BK staff. 


Who are you?

You are someone with previous retail or service experience, ideally in a high volume, customer focused environment. You are responsible, reliable, and punctual. You are a roller skater and eager to learn about roller skate products and functions. You are someone who is self-motivated, takes initiative, and likes to work in a team setting. You have excellent people skills and are able to listen, communicate, and relate to others on a personal level. You are interested in helping customers find their perfect skate, listening to their needs and wants. You have great communication skills and ask for clarity when needed. You are used to working in a fast paced environment where on the fly decision making is sometimes required. You are available to work Saturdays during the period of employment, with some flexibility for additional working days. You are familiar with Google Docs, Word, and Excel, and are able to lift 30 pounds and lift boxes overhead. If you have experience using hand tools, that is a plus!


Our goal is to be a diverse workforce that is representative of the skaters we serve. We encourage applications from Black, Indigenous, and other people of color, people with disabilities, trans and non-binary folks, and LGBTQ2S people. If you are a member of one of these groups, you are encouraged to self-identify in your cover letter or resume.
