Job Description


We’re hiring a full-time Shop Lead to join the P.F team in our retail locations in Culver City! The Shop Lead will act as the main point of contact between the Regional Shop Manager, the P.F. retail team and our growing Westside customer base.

This role is integral to expanding P.F.’s presence beyond ecommerce and requires a dedicated, detail-oriented individual that is able to strategically plan in the future.

This position reports to the Regional Shop Manager and oversees 1-2 Retail Associates.
