Do you love odd-jobs & side-gigs?  

We’re looking for enthusiastic, sales/set-up staff to work with our team on an on-call basis! Can you easily drop into a situation to come up with solutions and help our team meet urgent deadlines? Do you enjoy helping people and think you make a great salesperson? Become a part of our on-call team, for weekends & “once-in-a-while” work!

 

Work with us...

Our aim is to improve the estate sale industry. We don’t require experience in estate sales, in fact we are especially seeking candidates whose background is in another area. We want people with fresh eyes who can take their skills and work with us to re-shape how things are done, while maintaining the best of what we do. We’re looking for hard-working individuals who want to be a part of our team, “on the side.” Even as on-call staff, we expect team members to keep in mind our top priority to care for both our shoppers and clients.

 

About Estate Sales

Estate sales involve liquidating the contents of a home as quickly as possible (usually over 1-3 days). We clean, reorganize, stage, and price the whole whole home, and then conduct the sale. It is similar to a retail environment, but quicker paced with the freedom to create and innovate.

This is a very active job-- you will be on your feet most of the day. Some lifting and carrying of furniture and household items is involved.
