And we're dreaming of you!

We know there are a lot of opportunities out there. And the retail landscape can be brutal.

Being a part of the Happy Up Crew is a little different.

Every day you get to make someone's birthday amazing with the perfect gift. Every day you get to show off all the silly and wonderful toys and games on our shelves. Every day you can make a serious grown up remember how magical it is to be a kid.

What we offer:

  • Flexible scheduling
  • Competitive Pay
  • An extremely playful atmosphere
  • The NICEST customers around

Sounds pretty good, doesn't it? So join our funny little family!

For our store manager, we are looking for someone who:

  • Has excellent communication skills. You must be able to interact with the children in our stores as well as their grown-ups
  • Is able to spend the entire shift on your feet and moving around. This is a very active job
  • Will develop an excellent awareness of who is in the store, who may need help, and who is better left to browse on their own
  • Has social media savvy to help keep our accounts active and fun!
  • Is comfortable learning our computer system and entering data
  • Has top-notch organizational skills
  • Has good customer service instincts
  • Is self-motivated and able to keep others on track
  • Is able to identify tasks and see them to completion while prioritizing customers over the task
  • Is upbeat, confident, and enthusiastic
  • Is curious and eager to learn about new products, plus able to help the rest of the team learn about them, too.

Additional skills we'd really like you to have, but aren't required:

  • Experience with young children and early childhood education
  • Experience in a customer-focused small business
  • Merchandising or other visual arts experience
  • Previous experience in sales is a plus

Responsibilities will include:

  • Continual communication with the owners regarding low stock levels, overstocks, and slow moving product
  • Achieving sales goals and motivating others to meet them
  • Covering shifts if another employee calls off
  • Problem solving on the fly, both for customers as well as fellow workers
  • Maintaining the appearance of the store including the sales floor, window displays, and sales counters
  • Creating a cheerful atmosphere for customers as well as the Happy Up Crew
  • Communicating as needed with the Edwardsville store as well as the Online team

Duties will also include those of our Sales Associates:

  • Greeting customers and helping them find items in the store
  • Shopping with the customer, making recommendations, and demonstrating or describing your recommendation (aka hand selling)
  • Answering customer questions and maintaining a welcoming and friendly space
  • Wrapping gifts and ringing up purchases
  • Restocking shelves, tidying sections, and cleaning as needed
