Working at Chalet

At Chalet we believe our employees are the most valuable asset in our business.

The local owners encourage dialogue and communication and place a high value on the ideas and suggestions which come from an experienced staff.

Soft Goods and Furniture Sales – Half Time

Do you have a flair for design and display ? Do you like to coordinate fabric colors with patterns and textures ? Do you have a good sense of style and composition ?  Our new position might be a way to turn your passion into paychecks and to stay current on the latest trends in home furnishings and apparel merchandising. You don’t need to be a skier to work in Chalet’s expanded furniture department or to sell warm winter clothing. Our store is stocked with some of the finest brands of indoor and outdoor furniture along with cutting edge manufacturers of fashion forward outerwear. At Chalet, we believe the products we sell should perform as well as they look, which is why we offer a comprehensive training program. We focus on the construction as much as the design. We look for a balance between fit and fashion. We’d rather explain the price once than apologize for the quality forever. In addition to product and sales training you would also be involved with our visual merchandizing plan and help keep the store displays fresh and appealing. Sound interesting ?
