We want driven and competitive people who help us satisfy the customers' needs. We do not sell on commission, we offer a competitive base rate and we bonus based on team performance.
We focus on providing you a time off package that is very generous for retail! It is important for us to be available when our customers need us so we do work weekends, however our hours of operation are the best in the business (We close at 5pm on Saturday and Sunday).
