Subscription Sales

It's that time of the year again!

 

The Joffrey Subscription Sales Campaign for the 2014-2015 Season is beginning and we're immediately building our staff of bright, articulate Subscription Sales Associates.

Subscribers are a vital part of The Joffrey community; they commit to The Joffrey by purchasing advance tickets for the entire Season; they fill seats for our performances at The Auditorium Theatre; and, they provide a significant portion of the revenue we use to create and present our magnificent productions.

This is not the typical telemarketing environment - our employees love talking with Joffrey patrons and they're proud of the work we do. To qualify for a position, experience as an inside sales professional is a plus but if you are personable, work well independently and in a small group, have an appreciation of the arts, possess both excellent communication skills and a clear understanding of sales and marketing, maybe a position on our team is just right for you!

 

Friendly, creative, energetic work environment.

Salary + Commission + Perks!!

Part-Time, evenings, 5:00-9:00 pm and Saturdays, 10:00 - 3:00 pm

Retirees are encouraged to apply.

No Resumes Please.
