Weekend Shift Tasting Shack Retail Associate @ Spruce Peak  

About the Organization Like any successful American business, WhistlePig began with a dream. In 2007, we bought a dilapidated dairy farm in Vermont, and after many sleepless nights spent considering different business ventures, we decided to pursue our love of whiskey. With Master Distiller, Dave Pickerell, on board we made the ultimate gamble: investing in 10-year-aged rye whiskey, a spirit that had not yet been rediscovered by the American public. Dave curated liquid from the finest aged Canadian Rye stock available, which was then hand-bottled on the WhistlePig Farm. The gamble paid off and our 10-year old rye whiskey was born.

  • Encouraging customers to dive into the world of WhistlePig Whiskies.

  • Educating guests about the fascinating history and range of WhistlePig products.

  • Skillfully using our point of sale system for smooth transactions.

  • Following procedures and keeping our whiskey and merchandise fully stocked.

  • Maintaining the aesthetics of our new space – we want it looking sharp!

  • Closing out the daily transactions through the point of sale system and reporting daily sales.

  • Reliable transportation – you've got to get here!

  • A genuine passion for spirits and related topics.

  • Retail sales experience – you're the master of product presentation and upselling.

  • Basic computer skills (G-suite, MS Office).

  • Able to work weekends, the Tasting Shack operating hours are 12-6 both days.

  • A pigtastic personality, and the ability to solve problems on the fly.

  • Stamina – you can stand for ages, and you're strong enough to lift 50 pounds.

 

KNOWLEDGE, SKILLS, & REQUIRED EXPERIENCE:

We're looking for candidates with:

  • 1-3 years of related experience.

  • A VT DLC 1st class alcohol server certification before you start.

  • Experience in restaurants, bars, hospitality, or service is a major advantage.

  • Use your hands and fingers to operate a register, pour spirits, listen, speak, and even taste and smell.

  • Be on your feet, moving or walking for extended periods.

  • Lift and move up to 50 pounds.

  • Be ready for the occasional sitting, stooping, kneeling, crouching, and reaching.

 

TRAINING:

We'll equip you with:

  • Whiskey and brand training before go-live!

  • On-site training before you launch into the fun.

  • A parking pass 

 

Are you up for the challenge? If you're ready to bring the joy of WhistlePig Whiskey to our guests and make every day a spirited adventure, we want to hear from you. Let's raise a glass to a fantastic role!
