  • Provide book, music, and pop culture knowledge and information to employees and customers
  • Collaboratively communicate with retail leadership and HQ partners on trends & customer feedback

  • Passion for geekdom, whether books, music, comics, games, or pop culture
  • A high school diploma or GED equivalent. If you have a degree, even better
  • Roll with the punches. Retail is a fast-changing industry and you like catching curveballs thrown your way
