Minion Wanted

We are looking for one or two new minions to help us over the coming season. One local (NE Ohio)for sure and one somewhere in the Midwest. Our company, Renaissance Fashions (www.ren-fashions.com) sells Corsets, bodices and other clothing as well as Steampunk items .

The job chiefly consists of going to Sci-Fi conventions, SCA events and Renaissance Faires throughout the Midwest and selling our product. Sounds great doesn’t it? It is! You will be involved in sales and basic book keeping but as we are a mobile business you will be helping transport, load, unload, setup and tear down at events.

Sales skill is very helpful but we will also be training you. You need to be fit enough to move heavy tubs of stock and grid wall. A clean driving record and dependable car is a must. Experience driving a cargo van is a plus. If you are local you may be working with us at shows or operating solo. Having Ren-Fair garb also a plus.

If you are not local you will be acting semi-autonomously. You will coordinate with us to book shows. You will then be responsible for getting to shows with your own transportation (a minivan is helpful but not absolutely needed) setting up, selling and then tearing down. You will be required to keep good records regarding expenses, stock levels and providing a report to us after shows.

“Wow! This sounds great! Where do I sign up?”

Not so fast there. It’s important that you understand that this is part time work. Shows are on weekends but with travel you may be on the road from Thursday to Monday. If you work 9-5 M-F and are still interested we might still be able to use you for shows in Ohio and Michigan.

Pay depends on experience and the type of work you are doing. Typically there is a daily rate and a bonus if certain sales goals are met. We also cover certain expenses for shows. Other perks include deep discounts on our products.

This position is open to men or women 21 or older.

If interested email us at steve@renaissancefashions.com or call 440-647-4668
