Swain's Crew Member Employment Opportunities


Going back to 1949, Swain's has been the great place to shop or work and the place to get the most extensive, unique, varied Art Supplies and other creative materials. Almost 70 years later, that reputation still stands. That's why the people we hire as Swain's Crew Members have to be the best.


We offer our full time associates excellent benefits like paid time off, paid holidays, paid sick time, company paid medical insurance, life insurance, and employee discounts.


What does a Swain's Crew Member Do?


A little bit of everything! Being a Swain's Crew Member is learning to perform a variety of store duties. Learning about our products, answering questions from customers, answering the telephones, running a cash register, checking in and pricing merchandise, building creative in-store displays and training new and part time associates are all some of the duties that make a Crew Members day a busy one. Setting a positive example for other  members is very important.


Our work environment is team-oriented, fast paced and exciting. We encourage all of our Crew Members to grow with the company, to become part of our success story. Several of our managerial staff started as hourly associates and were promoted from within.


We're always looking for upbeat, self-motivated, creative people who would like to join our friendly crew at this successful locally owned art supply, gift and toy store.
