Our company is Mac based— so the ability to handle iCal and other Apple products is ideal.

The Stylist role must be available to work weekends; specifically, we’re looking for someone who can work Wednesday, Friday, Saturday, and the occasional Sunday.

With a strong passion for all things bridal, the TGS –Social Stylist will support behind-the-scenes operations, including managing online databases, processing payments, coordinating trunk shows and events, and assisting the Manager and Owner with appointments as needed.  Retail experience is REQUIRED to be considered. Over time the role will grow into a sales position, given that the individual fully exhibits the ability to sell and to style. There will be an opportunity to work more hours in the future.

This is a customer-facing role. Along with amazing customer service skills and impeccable attention to detail, we’re looking for a few other “must have” attributes:
•    Proven sales record
•    Friendly/outgoing – high energy level
•    Extremely organized
•    Very well-spoken, confident
•    Basic computer skills and ability to manage online databases
•    Fast learner
•    Maintains a professional and fashionable appearance
•    Quick on their feet; remains calm under times of stress
•    Ability to lift up to 50 lbs.
•    Ability to be on their feet all day
•    Ability to maintain knowledge of sales and promotions, products,  payment and exchange policies, and security practices

The customer is at the heart of The Gown Shop; our goal is ultimately to provide each bride a comfortable, personalized shopping experience. So first and foremost, we seek team members who value our customers and who have the ability to communicate clearly with them—as well as with fellow employees and management. It’s a fast-paced working environment; each day is different. So a successful candidate is someone who can keep up with us (with a smile!). Our business continues to grow, and we’re looking for dedicated employees who are enthusiastic about staying and growing with us.

Think you’re “the one”? We’d love to hear from you! Send your resume and a brief cover letter explaining why you’d be a good fit to stacy@thegownshopannarbor.com. Please no phone calls or walk-ins.
