Working at the Odyssey

Work at the Odyssey!

Odyssey Bookshop in South Hadley, MA, is looking for a full-time bookseller and an administrator for our store's First Editions Club.  The successful candidate must be an avid reader of contemporary literary fiction, have a disciplined mind with a knack for organization, and a reasonable knowledge of Excel. Additionally, we need somebody with excellent orthographic skills who is able to write and communicate well via email, who can find the Zen in repetitive tasks, and who enjoys playing well with others. Because public transportation to South Hadley can be challenging, we require potential candidates to have their own transportation. Other responsibilities include, but are not limited to, serving customers, creating displays, assisting with the production of marketing materials for the store.
 
This position requires standing for up to four hours at a time and the ability to lift and carry boxes of books up to 40 pounds.
 
This is a full-time position with some benefits, such as a significant staff discount, all of the publisher advance reading copies you can carry, and being able to rub elbows with some of the most exciting authors writing today.  Starting salary is $11-12.50/hour, depending on experience.  Actual schedule is TBD but expect to work at least one night per week and some weekends.
 
 
Odyssey Bookshop is an equal opportunity, affirmative action employer, and women, people of color, and LGBTQ people are encouraged to apply.
