Grove Guide (Part-Time)



Grove Collaborative



Portland, ME, US


The Role
A Grove Guide is dedicated to making an incredible experience for each Grove Collaborative customer. Grove Guides are exceptionally knowledgeable about all the products we sell – they can make phenomenal recommendations, answer questions, and generally be a friend on the inside at Grove! 
Grove Guides get to connect our customers to our company. Your amazing personality will shape the voice and face of Grove, supporting thousands of customers. We're looking for an amazing addition to our rapidly growing Community Happiness team who helps to cultivate the culture of a department from the ground floor. 
This is a part-time role working 15-25 hours/week in the evening. You will work mainly weeknights (weekend hours also available). This role allows for the option to work your shifts from your home while being supported by other experienced Grove Guides. This is a great opportunity to ease back into the workforce, work around your busy schedule, or just to make a little extra money!

    • We love to learn from each other – you will be working with other Grove Guides and leadership to provide the best possible customer experience.
    • We care about doing things the right way – from compost in the office to carbon-offset shipping for our customers.
    • We all play up and do big things, and are fearless enough to get in the weeds and help with anything.

The Opportunity

      • A chance to work from home helping customers solve problems and learn more about our amazing products.
      • Evening and Weekend shifts available.  Evening shifts beginning after 5pm. Weekend hours would be scheduled with your manager.
      • Part-time minimum 15 hour per week with up to 25 hours per week available.
      • You’ll attend 1 week of paid training at our office in downtown Portland, Maine and be provided continued training and support moving forward.
      • Semi-monthly on-site 1on1 meeting with your manager with additional meetings scheduled remotely via phone or video
      • Follow-up training sessions as needed that can work around your schedule.
