Job Posting

Company: Foggy Mountain Shop
Location: Downtown Juneau
Position: Outdoor Retail Sales Associate
Requirements: Please see posting for details
Summary:

Foggy Mountain Shop has been outfitting locals and tourists in downtown Juneau for everything from the grandest expeditions to the smallest adventures for over forty years and we're still rockin' it! At Foggy Mountain, we’re intent on contributing to our dedicated local outdoors scene by maintaining a culture of stoke, curiosity and community. We're passionate about using the gear we sell and getting customers set with what they need to get after it in our immediate and expansive outdoor playground.

In the summer season, we’ll see international and domestic visitors arriving via cruise ship, ferry and air and locals hungry to take advantage of our extended daylight hours and extraordinarily diverse terrain. To keep up with that influx of stoke, we’re looking for solid, motivated individuals to join our summer sales crew.

Putting the gear we sell to the test is part of the job at Foggy Mountain Shop. We sell the beloved brands and products we’ve been most impressed with on our own adventures and speak from years of experience while remaining amped to hear about new gear, technology and stories from our customers about what’s working for them. We carry those choice brands that hold up to Southeast Alaska’s climate, including Arc’teryx, Patagonia, Rab, The North Face, Salomon, Osprey, Black Diamond, Petzl, etc. while taking pride in providing an environment of  inclusive and friendly mountain culture.

Our summer season begins with the first cruise ships arriving May 1st and finishes toward the end of September. We’d love to have a summer sales team put together by mid-April.

Our ideal candidate will:

  • be available for the entirety of the summer tourist season 
  • contribute to the positive atmosphere of the shop and work environment
  • be self-motivated, punctual, eager to learn about products, customer service and shop systems, open to taking direction
  • demonstrate the ability to multitask
  • want to remain engaged and busy throughout the work day
  • communicate clearly and have solid interpersonal skills
  • engage in and have experience with a variety of outdoor activities in which gear sold at Foggy Mountain Shop would be utilized (i.e. backpacking, climbing, trail running, mountaineering, hiking, skiing, etc.)

Preference will be given to applicants who are willing to commit to work full time through September and those who meet the shop’s scheduling needs as well as those with retail experience and interest and experience in outdoor activities. There may be opportunities for year round employment.

Please get in touch via email or phone to request an application or visit us in person at 134 N. Franklin St. in downtown Juneau across from the Baranof Hotel. We ask that you please submit a completed application and resume either in person or via the email address provided. We look forward to hearing from you!
