I am a retail consultant who is looking to bring on a salesperson for set-up, sales and take-down of a booth at the Calgary Taboo Show. The Taboo Show is an adult show and the booth I will be setting up is for lovedreamer.com. I am looking for a hardworking individual with adult toy sales experience who can also work our set-up and take-down. The successful candidate is comfortable:

- following instruction
- lifting and moving boxes up to 20lbs a box (usually less)
- setting up and maintaining retail displays
- packing boxes
- selling adult toy products
The sales aspect requires someone who understands the dynamics of helping customers with intimate questions related to sexuality and sexual activities. A strong emotional intelligence is the key to success, knowing when customers require more discretion about their needs and balancing that with selling to a busy trade show sales floor. We are looking for a candidate who can multi-task and sell to many customers at a time. Our brand focuses on more luxury style toys.
If interested, please send a cover letter/note (can be the body of your email) outlining your desire for working with us and your experience along with a resume and some times you'd be available for a phone interview this week.
The show takes place at BMO Centre for the following days and hours:
Friday November 1 - 5pm - midnight
Saturday November 2 - 1pm - midnight
Sunday November 3 - noon - midnight
Set-up takes place on Friday during the day and we work right in to the show. You can expect to work until at least 11pm on Friday and Saturday nights and maybe midnight depending on the crowd. Saturday and Sunday's shifts would start mid-afternoon and Sunday's take-down can take 2-2.5 hours after closing.
We work hard but like to keep it light and fun. I am an equal opportunity employer, feel free to disclose as much or as little about yourself as you like, outside of the requirements of the job. There is no tolerance for objectification or sexual harassment in our workplace - we are dealing with sensitive intimacy wants and desires and we want our customers to have a respectful sales experience.
