Assistant Store Manager - Job Description

Who we are:

In 1998, we were stuck behind desk jobs we didn't like --- and we were miserable. So we quit. We tossed out business suits for bathing suits, got our wisdom teeth pulled while we still had coverage and signed up for every credit card we could. On the same day, within ten minutes of each other, we walked out of our jobs, grabbed a drink and started chasing the American Dream. Twenty years in and some things have changed, but we're the same at our core. We're still having a ton of fun, hanging with Real Good People, and sharing the gift of the Vineyard with everyone we can.

Who you are:

With a love for our brand, a drive to learn, and a passion for an "every day should feel this good" store experience, you'll help build a fun and inclusive store culture for our Crew with a focus on driving results. As an ambassador of the brand, you'll think of new ways to evolve your business through connecting with your customers and community. You'll lead the Crew in the absence of the Store Manager with transparency, while coaching and inspiring them to drive results through engagement and accountability. You must embrace and lead change while remaining flexible to the ever-evolving needs of the business.

What you'll do:

  • Supports the development of strategies to exceed financial goals
  • Delivers an energetic and omni-channel sales floor experience that builds brand connection, customer engagement, and sales
  • Focuses on building client relationships and community engagement in order to build repeat customers and gain new customer acquisition

  • Builds an environment that fosters open and respectful communication with Crew and headquarters partners and solicits feedback to continually improve the store experience
  • Networks and recruits to help maintain a talent pool to fill open positions
  • Evaluates store operations for opportunities to enhance efficiency, productivity and profitability
  • Supports store merchandising to reflect current compass, brand initiatives and local customer needs
