Customer Service Associates are ski gear experts and can provide customers with the best equipment recommendations to match their ability, preferences, and budget. You should have excellent writing and communication skills and the ability to act positively and professionally with customers and coworkers—even when things get hectic. Powder7 is built on providing an excellent shopping experience, and our customer service associates keep that mojo alive.

Assist customers with order pickups, including having customers sign out all service tickets upon pickup.
Process returns, refunds, and order cancellations.
