Factory Store Sales Associate

The Company. Twisted Throttle® is an established company with a healthy growth record and a dynamic management team. Located in Exeter, Rhode Island, Twisted Throttle was founded at the cusp of the now-exploding adventure motorcycling craze and is currently positioned as one of the major players in the market. We provide premium bolt-on motorcycle accessories for the adventure, sport-touring, and sport bike markets, primarily serving European and Japanese motorcycle riders. As exclusive North American distributor for leading powersports and ADV brands (including SW-Motech, R&G and others), we also specialize in prototyping, product development, wholesale distribution, and Internet retail sales for the full line of Twisted Throttle’s house of brands.

The Position. The Factory Store Sales Associate engages with customers visiting the store and assists in the upkeep of inventory, displays and signage. This role is key to reinforcing the brand identity of Twisted Throttle and driving both sales and brand recognition in the New England area. The role combines visual creativity, interaction with customers and staff, and physically setting up and maintaining displays. This is a full time role in our Exeter, Rhode Island location.

Responsibilities and Duties:

  • Aid customers in picking products that will best meet their needs and help them have fun on their motorcycles. Apparel experience is helpful for working with customers in selecting properly-fitting helmets, boots and apparel. Customers will also ask that you come out to the parking lot to check out their bikes and offer customized suggestions for outfitting them.
  • Maintain pricing, item tagging, and signage.
  • Place daily replenishment and special order purchase orders with suppliers.
  • Ensure that all daily opening/closing procedures are followed, including cleanup, restocking, reordering, cash drawer, display setup, and other responsibilities as required.
  • Aid in conducting periodic physical inventory.
  • Other duties as assigned, including cross-training with Customer Service.

Desired Qualifications:

  • Extensive motorcycle knowledge, including detailed motorcycle anatomy, and recent participation in motorcycling as an adult; in short, you must be a motorcycle nut.
  • Visual merchandising: must be able to design, create and maintain effective parts, apparel and accessories displays in a retail environment.
  • Hustle: self-driven ability to drive assignments to completion on time.
  • Clear, direct communication and project management habits with customers, suppliers and co-workers.
  • A positive, helpful attitude as well as professional conduct and appearance.
  • Retail store management experience, including use of dealer management systems (i.e. CDK Lightspeed) preferred.
  • Bachelor’s degree with an emphasis on business, marketing, or visual
    merchandising preferred.
  • Fluency in Spanish, French, and/or German is helpful but not required.

Working Conditions: Enthusiasm for motorcycles is preferred for all positions at Twisted Throttle, as enthusiasm for any sport, outdoor, or adventure activity is key to fitting in with our passionate culture. (All new hires without previous motorcycle experience are provided opportunity to attend the motorcycle safety course and obtain their motorcycle driver's license.) Whether you are a motorcycle enthusiast or not, count on the contagion of the Twisted Throttle organization’s passion and drive. You will work in an office environment with a great management team that loves to work hard, have fun, and win!

The Factory Retail Store is currently operated Tuesday – Saturday, but hours and days of
operation are subject to change. Availability to work weekends is required, as most traffic through the store is Friday and Saturday.
