Holiday Market Staff

Sock Rocket is hiring sales staff for our upcoming holiday market season! We are looking for 2-3 humans who fit the criteria below and are available (at least partially) Friday through Sunday from November 18 through December 18, with a few Thursdays sprinkled in for set-up.

What you'll do:

  • Help customers buy our funky fresh socks at various holiday markets here in Calgary.
  • Welcome shoppers with a smile, talk to them about Sock Rocket, and answer any questions they might have about the socks.
  • Operate our very simple Point of Sale system to complete their purchase.
  • Take payment via cash and card.
  • Manage the cash box on site.
  • Keep an open communication line with us throughout your work day, and notify us of any issues or stock shortages.
  • Open the booth at the beginning of the day and close it down at the end. We'll be there to help show you the way :)
  • Help with load-in, set-up, tear-down, and load-out of the booth, including inventory tracking, at the beginning and end of weekends.
  • Smile, laugh, and be merry at some of the coolest and most festive holiday markets around!

Who you are:

  • Fun-loving and kind-hearted.
  • Trustworthy, honest, and punctual.
  • Confident in conversation with the new people.
  • Hard-working, but not TOO hard-working.
  • A fan of social enterprise, or at least of the idea of helping others.
  • Some experience with retail sales and/or customer service in a store, kiosk, or market booth would be great but isn't necessary.

What you'll get:

  • $17/hr plus bonus pay based on friendly competition and sales goals throughout the season.
  • Big discounts on Sock Rocket products for the holidays.
  • Direct support from us throughout your tenure.
  • The chance to work with a fun, successful, and established social enterprise brand and learn about / pass on the benefits of doing business this way!
