Job Description

Every person who walks through the doors of an Amos Pewter shop does so for a particular reason. From our long-time loyal customer who is looking to add to their collection to the visitor who was attracted by the hand-crafted pieces in the window display and even the person who ducked in the shop to ask directions. We know that our hand-crafted pewter creations are exceptional; kudos to all our artisans for their creativity and attention to detail.

We want you to be the icing on our cake! A typical day for you might include:

  • Welcoming visitors from the four corners of the world with all the enthusiasm of seeing an old friend
  • Helping cruise passengers find the perfect memento of their trip to PEI then packaging it up with the other pieces they are excited to take home for their friends and family
  • Wowing visitors with your knowledge of pewter as you share the steps in the design and production process that transform the solid ingot of pewter into the hand-crafted pieces in the shop
  • Calling Mahone Bay to order more Starfish ornaments
  • Channeling your inner neat-freak throughout the shop


We'd love to see your resume if you:

  • Have the superpower of knowing what the just-right gift is for that special someone even though you've never met them
  • Can make somebody's day better just because of the great experience they have with you
  • Are able to explain just about anything to anyone, face-to-face and on the phone
  • Can think on your feet and feel confident in your decision-making
  • Would be enthusiastically described as "reliable, flexible and dedicated" by your previous employers
  • Bonus points if you:
    • Have a plaque hanging on your wall at home saying "the customer is always right"
    • Get excited to offer your ideas to others on teams you work with
    • Want to rock this position and have fun doing it


We offer successful applicants:

  • Above average retail salary
  • Discounts on our hand-crafted designs
  • Hands-on training in retail and demonstrations
  • A positive team atmosphere

By the way, you don't need to have been a superstar sales person in your past life to have developed your awesome people skills - we'Ve been excited to work with superstars from lots of different backgrounds. We can't wait to hear your story! Send your resume to Natasha at nstargratt@amospewter.com.
