You're a passionate retail store manager with a focus on customer service and leading high performing and engaged teams. Come, love what you do with us!

One of our seasoned retail leaders is transferring to our Washington DC delivery center, so we are looking for a retail store-level manager to join our showroom. As a Leadership Associate with Room & Board, you'll report to the Retail Market Manager and contribute as a leader in guiding and leading the market in a way that creates an exceptional experience for our customers. You accomplish this through leading, mentoring and developing a team of design/sales professionals who are empowered and confident in their ability to provide design solutions to our customers.

Room & Board is committed to providing equal opportunity to all applicants. As we look to enhance the diversity of our teams and strengthen our inclusive culture, we strongly encourage people of color to apply.

Location: 1840 14th Street NW, Washington, D.C. 20009 (14th and T Street)

Schedule: Tuesday through Saturday, with flexibility to meet the needs of the business.

You'll share your talents in the following ways:

You'll join a 4-person leadership team who leads and inspires a team of 20 design/sales (non-commissioned sales environment), visual merchandising and inventory associates in our 29,000 sq. ft. showroom responsible for selling $30mm in quality, American-made modern home furnishings. Historically, we have found that our most successful Retail Leadership Associates have left the demanding pace of a store manager role for equal challenges, autonomy and rewards in this role.

Our Retail Leadership Associates understand how their customers live and shop. They leverage Room & Board's assortment to maximize the selling floor and therefore meet customer needs. They are passionate about Room & Board's design aesthetic and weave their understanding into the showroom experience. They also create meaningful store events that provide opportunities to deepen connections with existing customers as well as reach new customers.

Our Retail Leadership Associates are involved in the development of a strategic business plan that adjusts to the changing needs of their market. They play a role in the planning process, forecasting market sales, location headcount and salary plans, and all controllable expenses.
