Sales Associate: Best Way to Become a Wine Expert (Wine Jobs: Sales & Marketing)

Full Time

  Mister Wright Fine Wines

  New York, New York

Job Description:

The best way to become a wine expert is to work retail. There is no other setting in which you will have the depth and breadth of exposure. Working for an importer or distributor limits you to just their portfolio. Here we buy and sell across portfolios. Studying can get you some book knowledge; however, real knowledge comes from working with the products and categories on a daily basis.

Job Description: Sales associate wanted for a prestigious upper eastside retailer. The incumbent will have regular weekly hours but also must be willing to work potentially late shifts on two or more of Thursdays, Fridays, Saturdays, or Sundays. Experience in the wine industry is not required. A personable demeanor and an interest in wine are required.

Job requirements include:
•  Creating a friendly environment for customers,
•  General computer skills,
•  Creating in-store advertising materials,
•  Posting POs and updating products in our POS,
•  Ability to work in a fast paced environment with multiple projects and priorities,
•  Excellent interpersonal skills to communicate in a multicultural environment with all levels of employees and management,
•  Selling and making recommendations on the floor,
•  Answering phones and order fulfillment, 
•  Assisting with stocking shelves and creating displays,
•  A professional demeanor and appearance,
•  Ability to lift 40 pounds,
•  Punctuality, and 
•  Various other tasks as directed by managers.

We are looking for responsible individuals who are willing and able to help appreciate and support store policies and to potentially help with day-to-day operational and administrative aspects of the business. This is an excellent opportunity to develop real wine industry skills.
