Job Description

Sports Basement

Sports Basement is a Bay Area sporting goods retailer, but it feels like so much more! We carry the best brands at the best prices, we rent snow gear, camp gear, bikes and more, and we'll fix up your bike or tune your ski gear at our in-store service shops. Even better, we offer tons of comfy couches and community spaces so you can feel at home, enjoy a film festival, or meet some (sorta) famous athletes. From hosting fundraisers for local schools & charities to cheering you on at a local race, we're a key part of our local communities as well as a safe space to hang out (that’s what the couches are for).

Position Overview

Not your everyday snow shop, Sports Basement offers a fun and dynamic work environment with perks that you simply won’t find at other shops in the Bay Area.

General Duties & Responsibilities - these may vary by specific role:

  • Assist customers in an enthusiastic and courteous manner; providing service that makes customers say "wow!" (in a good way.).
  • Advise and assist customers with products and gifts that are perfect for their needs (not just whatever's priced the highest!).
  • Accurately complete sales using POS system according to established procedures.
  • Stock and clean the department to make shopping easy and enjoyable for the customer.
  • Develop and maintain expertise of all merchandise in your department, in order to effectively assist customers with accurate information; keep up-to-date as new product lines are introduced (we'll help with that, of course!).
  • Assist with merchandising efforts, displays, and floor moves as needed (creativity is key!).
  • Assist with community marketing events.
  • Maintain a clean and safe workplace.
  • Perform other duties as assigned by manager.


$16-$19 depending on experience

Sports Basement offers a competitive wage with plenty of opportunities for advancement after skills and experience are demonstrated. Specific starting wages are listed above. We went above and beyond with our benefits, too! You'll get:

  • Full health, dental, and optical coverage (full-time staff).
  • Participation in our profit-sharing bonus pool (full-time staff).
  • 40% off our already low prices. . . for life! (after you work 2,000 hours).
  • A kitchen fully stocked with free, tasty, healthy food for breakfast, lunch, and/or dinner.
  • A free flight every time you work the equivalent of one full year.
  • Free skiing, camping, and biking trips with our Out of the Basement program.
  • Free use of our rental gear.
  • Up to $1,000 per year in event and race fee reimbursements.
  • 401(k) plan.
  • Stock options program (full-time staff).
  • Flexible schedule for students.

Business Overview

Our Story
