Retail: Statue of Liberty Gift Pavilion, USA Store or Ellis Gift ShopDo you love to smile and talk to people? The Statue of Liberty is one of the most recognizable places on earth. Our Team of Associates will be working in one of our three gift shops around the two islands and help our guests from around the world find that perfect souvenir that will remind them of the wonderful experiences they had at The Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island National Monuments. Previous Retail experience is a plus but not required, along with excellent guest service skills and attention to detail.
Our warehouse staff is responsible for restocking our stores and cafes, accepting deliveries, loading and unloading freight, maintaining inventory levels and ordering replacement items. These positions are great if you enjoy using your mental and physical strengths. Without a great warehouse staff our other departments lose part of that great experience the guest will take home with them.
Are you an outsider type of person then maybe this is a position for you? Our Maintenance staff does everything from managing the recycling, removing waste, painting, cleaning and maintaining our areas on both islands. This is part of the visual experience of a guest, how great and clean the areas look.
