30+ days ago

Full time position, 32-40 hours per week spent working in our retail store locations in Chaska and South Minneapolis. Retail hours, including weekends (Saturday and Sunday).

Hourly base pay, $12-16/hr depending on experience.


A Jack or Jill of all trades, with a background in customer service, a love of design, and a strange addiction to details & organization. Your day at Carver Junk Company is focused on serving our customers in store and online, splitting time between both store locations. You’ll also keep happily busy with business administration-related tasks like bookkeeping, reporting, vendor management and shipping online orders. You’ll love being an expert on our products, including the lines of paint we sell for DIY customers, and you gain satisfaction from facing different challenges and opportunities every day! You’ll exercise your design skills as you stage & re-stage the stores as furniture and accessories fly out the door. We’ll provide you with an awesome, supportive, fun work environment, valuable skills and experience, and the opportunity to grow with us.

Skills/Qualifications [non-negotiables]

  • A sense of humor, and positive attitude. Our brand is fun, edgy, and unique. If we’re going to unleash you in our brick & mortar and online worlds, we want you to reflect those qualities, too.
  • Multi-tasker extraordinaire. Ability to juggle multiple customers in-store, while filling your spare time with reporting, responding to online customer inquiries, coordinating vendor deliveries, and shipping online orders. You have excellent time management skills.
  • Previous sales and/or customer service experience. Ability to balance sales skills with people skills.
  • Social media expertise, either in the business world or your personal experience. If you’ve got a demonstrated aptitude, we can show you the ropes of the business side.
  • Uber-organized. You see processes, and your head spins with all the ways they could be improved. You’ve got actual examples of how you’ve worked with teams to improve processes, too.
  • Flexibility and willingness to change as we grow and learn together. CJC is a small, relatively new business in a competitive market that requires constant change to stay “ahead of the game.”
