Introduction to careers at PEARL iZUMi:
At PEARL iZUMi, we all play an integral role in our mission to “Unlock the Power of Inspiration and Impact” in a supportive, fast-paced and productive work environment. This is why we exist, and all team members contribute in tangible and sometimes profound ways. We are committed to building a team that represents a variety of backgrounds, perspectives and skills. The more diverse we are, the better our work will be. If you see value in “unlocking” this potential, then PEARL iZUMi could be the place for you. We are looking for passionate like-minded people who are fueled by an innate desire to work in an environment focused on team success. Whether your role is to create, to sell, or to support, careers at PEARL iZUMi give you an opportunity to make a difference.
We are also laser-focused on finding the right people who share our core values – Trust, Craft, Empathy, Impact, and Plus 1. Check out our website to see how PEARL iZUMi defines and captures these critical internal values. To be clear, we evaluate all candidates on their demonstrated commitment to these values.
Overview of role:
Are you a high-energy individual who loves cycling and the outdoors? If so, we have an opportunity for you! We are looking for hourly associates with experience in retail and/or the outdoor industry. Retail Associates support the store management by performing various receiving, stocking, signing and customer service-related tasks as requested. This position works to maintain the high standards of the company throughout the store and offer outstanding service to every PEARL iZUMi customer.
This is not your standard retail job – it’s a chance to make a difference in the world around you. First, you and your peers will partner with PEARL iZUMi guests to outfit them perfectly for their next adventure on two wheels; often building a rapport that lasts years as many guests return to the store with feedback, inspiration and excitement. Second, you’ll support PEARL iZUMi’s mission to use bikes as a force for good in the fight against climate change, as the gear you outfit the guest in creates the opportunity for them to ride instead of drive, for everything from fun in the mountains to simple community transportation.
We are looking (and even offering a $500 signing bonus!) for enthusiastic Retail Associates (for both part-time and full-time roles), experienced in retail and/or the outdoor industry for this not-just-a-job. You will be in good company; many of our team members stay and ride with us for decades and thrive off the fulfillment of keeping customers happy and inspired for their next adventure. Making sure our guests are fully prepared for their next ride will be your highest responsibility. This role will also support store management with all the usual retail tasks – including receiving product, stocking, pricing, some cleaning, and of course, outstanding customer service.
