Sorry, Visa / sponsorship not available.
Tongass Trading has a unique retail management opportunity available appealing to talented and motivated candidates. Tongass has four highly successful curio stores (retailing Alaska curios, gifts and souvenirs) that cater to one million visitors (and growing) coming to beautiful Southeast Alaska each year for the Alaska experience. Tongass is a privately owned company that has been serving Ketchikan and travelers since 1898.
This is not a cookie-cutter, box store. The Curio Division management does it all. There is one vacancy currently available either for a Merchandise Manager or a Store Operations Manager position. The position filled will depend upon the qualifications and preferences of the successful candidate.
These two roles perform separate but overlapping functions that intertwine throughout the course of the year; in-season and off-season:
Tongass is seeking a self-directed, high energy, results-oriented, willing to learn, hands on and do-what-it-takes manager. Candidates will have five years of successful, traditional retail management experience and a track record of achieving retail metrics. Either position has periods of being physically demanding, and the manager needs to have the ability to move boxes up to 50 pounds, and to be on ones feet for all day. Some travel is required. Candidates will be motivated by the exciting opportunity to take their retail management skills to the next level and to learn the Tongass successful business practices.
Starting monthly salary is in the $4000 to $6000 range, DOE; plus a compensation package that includes bonus potential, parking permit, medical premiums, 401K with company match, employee discount and paid vacation.
Ketchikan and its surroundings offer an abundance of activities for outdoor enthusiasts, as well as a thriving arts community, library, full-service recreation center, a variety of churches and excellent schools.
Are you are ready to settle down in a great community and to become part of a challenging retail management career?
