General Store Manager

Mt Lemmon General Store & Gift Shop Summerhaven, AZ

  • Expired: over a month ago. Applications are no longer accepted.
Job Description

The Mt Lemmon General Store and Gift Shop has an opening for the position of Store Manager. A company vehicle is provided (see benefits). This position will require the following:

  • A motivated self starter who is enthusiastic and fun.
  • Someone who is willing and able to work in and eventually manage the store at full capacity without owner supervision.
  • A creative, detail oriented and passionate person who enjoys cooking and is able to learn and manage our fudge production system.
  • A multitasker with the ability to be responsible for store opening and closing, cash register management and close out, directing part-time staff, and assisting the owners with overall operation of the store. Including but not limited to helping and serving customers, running the registers, cleaning, stocking, inventory control, etc.

The qualified candidate must be well spoken, friendly and personable, able to interact and have fun while serving our customers. The position is structured such that the manager will be responsible for 1-5 employees at a time and is directly accountable to the owners who are also active in the business. We are currently open 7 days per week for 8-10 hours per day. The manager will be expected to work approximately 40-45 hours per week. Weekends and holidays will be mandatory with the exception of requested time off.

The downside: we are 25 miles up a winding mountain road that is frequently impacted by bad weather and road hazards. These are very important things to consider when applying for the job. Housing up here is very limited and expensive. If the candidate were to consider moving here in the future, it will take some time and creativity to make that happen.

The Mt Lemmon General Store and Gift Shop is experiencing rapid growth in the exciting little town of Summerhaven up on Mt Lemmon. Many people visit here all times of the year for recreation and sightseeing which makes our store a vital mountain community resource. This is an exceptional and unique job opportunity to work in a famous store high up in the beautiful Catalina Mountains. The work environment is fast paced and very fun. Our customers are happy to be here and love visiting and browsing the store, but most importantly they love the FUDGE!!
