Working at the Odyssey


Part-time weekend bookseller in the Children’s Department

The Odyssey Bookshop in South Hadley, MA, is seeking a part-time weekend bookseller (12-16 hours/week). The successful candidate will be someone who has enthusiasm for a diverse range of books and people.

  • An extensive knowledge of children’s literature is required. Bookselling experience is a plus! Passion for books is a must!
  • Bookselling requires high energy, excellent customer service, computer skills, attention to detail, and multi-tasking. All applicants should understand that being a bookseller requires manual labor - shelving books, lifting boxes, and standing at the cash register for an extended period of time.
  • A background in either sales or the book industry is a plus.
  • Good written, computer, and verbal communication skills are necessary, as is having your own transportation.
  • Ideal candidate would be interested in retail and e-commerce bookselling as a career, not just a job.
  • Compensation will be commensurate with experience

Odyssey Bookshop is an equal opportunity, affirmative action employer, and women, people of color, and LGBTQ people are encouraged to apply.
