We hire Design Associates from a broad spectrum of careers and life experiences. They share a common thread of finding pleasure in inspiring customers and helping them create homes they love. Professional, relationship-based sales experience in a collaborative, non-commissioned, environment is desired. Due to the autonomy given to our Design Associates, those with previous retail leadership experience can transition successfully into this role. To fully serve our customers our Design Associates work evenings and weekends.
Our Design Associates are problem solvers by nature and thrive in a solution-based selling environment that is collaborative and design-focused. They lead with questions and incorporate the customer's personal style and functional requirements to offer solutions that make a house a home. Design Associates are fully engaged in the world around them, and understand how homes evolve based on life changes, technology, sustainability and other social influences.
Design Associates build long-term relationships with their customers and find ways to have meaningful and relevant interactions with them throughout the sales process. They fully embrace technology within their work day to support their productivity and customer responsiveness.
Our Design Associates are brand ambassadors and have a passion for modern design. Room & Board creates an environment of curiosity and learning where they are encouraged to strengthen their design confidence and grow in their understanding of the breadth and depth of Room & Board's product offerings.
Room & Board is an environment of inclusion.
