Both jobs require working on Saturdays and Sundays, 8 hours a day (with to potential to add up to 2 additional days for the right person). Please note, this is not a short-term/ interim job. We are looking for people who can commit to a year at the store.
Prior retail experience – ideally at a bookstore – and a thorough knowledge of modern + contemporary visual arts and photography is REQUIRED. Interviewees will be quizzed, so you you'd better know your stuff!
If you've always dreamed of working in a bookstore so you can sit behind the counter and read all day, this job is not for you! These are busy, active positions and we’re looking for people who are hardworking, enthusiastic, personable, confident, calm under pressure, enjoy working with the public, and have excellent communication skills. They must be resourceful, responsible, detail-oriented and ready to approach all tasks -- from the mundane to the complex -- with equal vigor.
Please e-mail email@example.com a letter introducing yourself and attach your résumé - be sure to note all retail experience and provide current contact information for references. If you have any questions, please write firstname.lastname@example.org
In lieu of our cancelled April event with Stephen Shore, we are thrilled to share an exclusive and in-depth conversation organized by Mack Books between Stephen Shore and LACMA curator Britt Salvesen, discussing Shore’s distinctive photographic work: from pioneering the aesthetic of the great American road trip, the new vanguard of Instagram photography, and how he practices the act of seeing.
