Assistant Store Manager – Taylor University (Full-time)



Retail Operations

Reports to:

Store Manager


Upland, IN

Role Introduction:

The Store Operations team works directly with the store managers to integrate the Tree of Life culture within our campus partners.  While we are a “third party” entity, our goal is to engage the campus from within.  Each team member has a defined role, but collaboration is an integral part of who we are.  We often partner with another team member to create unique solutions.  We are looking for team members who desire to engage the campus community while furthering the culture and values of both Tree of Life and the institution.

We are seeking team members who place a high value on teamwork, innovation, and character development. Each team member should have a strong desire to serve our campus community in developing the next generation of leaders.

Role Function:

Every team member is responsible for:

  • Creating a welcoming environment by welcoming every customer and offering assistance
  • Maintaining store stock and appearance through creative displays and merchandising
  • Supporting sales in a way that builds rapport with customers
  • Assisting in mail and print operations as needed

As we strive to integrate the campus community, it often requires flexibility and adaptability in scheduling and function to serve the campus well.  As a team, we often step in to fill whatever role is needed as we see something that needs to be accomplished.  As we continue to grow and develop, we are constantly making small adjustments to provide the best service possible and desire team members who are able to adjust with us.

As a member of the management team, you will be responsible for:

  • Setting a positive tone and being an example of service, hard work, and creative problem-solving
  • Providing direction to the store team and performing the duties of a store manager in their absence
  • Understanding the unique specifics of the institution, without compromising our core values of character, relationship, and innovation

The Taylor University campus store includes textbooks sales, gifts, and merchandise sales as well as campus mail operations.  You may be asked to fill a role in any of these areas as needed.
