Type: Full-time SalaryReports to: Director, Sales SupportExperience: Mid-LevelABOUT US:
Trunk Club (www.trunkclub.com) was started to solve a simple problem – shopping for clothes in stores or online just doesn’t work for most people. It’s overwhelming, inconvenient, and takes way too much time. With Trunk Club, men and women discover awesome clothes that are perfect for them without ever having to go shopping. We combine top brands, expert service, and unparalleled convenience to deliver a highly personalized experience that helps people look their best. We start by scouring the planet for the very best in men's and women's apparel, curating an ever-evolving assortment of pieces from our favorite designers. With the best inventory anywhere as our point of departure, a Stylist on our team hand-selects a trunk of items based on each customer’s needs and tastes. They keep what they love and send the rest right back to us, at no cost to them. Our team is based in Chicago, IL, and we have locations in Washington, DC, Dallas, TX, Los Angeles, New York, Charleston, and Boston. Since launching in December 2009, we have grown from four to over 1,200, and in 2014, Nordstrom acquired us. We're actively looking for amazing people to join our team!
