This Company Will Pay You to Explore the Rockies and Work From Home
Do you live for outdoor adventure -- or at least dress like you do?
Better yet, want to wear your Patagonia jacket and yoga pants to work every day?
All jokes aside, if you’re obsessed with Patagonia’s quality outdoor gear and into the idea of a work-from-home job with ample travel opportunities, listen up: We may have found your dream job.
Patagonia’s Hiring a Work-From-Home Associate Sales Rep
This world-famous purveyor of outdoorsy goodness is looking for an associate sales rep to service its markets in the Rockies -- namely New Mexico, Colorado and Wyoming.
You’d be responsible for working closely with the regional manager and sales representative to help Patagonia craft in-store merchandising plans, recruit and educate new dealers, as well as meet sales goals.
Best of all, you’d do it from the comfort of your own home, with about 100 days per year of company-expensed travel thrown in, too. The Rockies are big, and you’d have lots of stores to visit and optimize!
We’ve reached out to the company to get you the deets on pay and benefits, but until we get that intel, check out Patagonia’s page at Glassdoor.
It has ridiculously good ratings from real employees, and benefits include paid parental leave plans, full health, dental and vision coverage and (of course) a steep employee discount.
Do You Have What It Takes for This Patagonia Job?
We already know you have adventure in your heart -- but do you have the rest of the skills and qualifications required to take advantage of this awesome opportunity?
Patagonia specifies it’s looking for an applicant with a bachelor’s degree, as well as a “fundamental understanding of the outdoor retail industry.”
You should also be familiar with MS Office, good with people and “highly organized, flexible, self-motivated, and energetic.”
Physically, you’ll need to be able to lift and carry up to 50 pounds’ worth of goodies for up to 100 feet, as well as be able to sit for extended periods of time and stare at a computer screen.
Good thing you’ll be able to use your discount and vacation days to gear up for outdoor time to counterbalance the screen-driven part of the job!
Sound like the next adventure for you? Head over to the listing to see the full details and apply -- you can either fill out an application or just use your LinkedIn account.
Then, have a packed bag on standby and your favorite puffy jacket close at hand -- and cross your fingers!
Your Turn: Will you apply for this awesome work-from-home opportunity with Patagonia?
