Wax Trax is hiring! 

Wax Trax is looking for a person who’s very detail-oriented and organized, in good physical shape, loves to be moving and staying busy, and wants to learn more about music and recorded music. This job is entry-level and is physically demanding. Women, people of color, and LGBTQ are strongly encouraged to apply. Our staff and management are accustomed to being flexible and covering for people who occasionally need some time off to do a show now and then (though tours are a different conversation).  

Inventory Specialist 

We’re a small and growing business, and this job is tightly focused on making sure our stock, including what people see on display in the store and online, reflects accurately what we physically have in the store. This involves a lot of running around and pulling overstock to put on display, a lot of checking what the database says against what is physically here, working with the website manager to keep the website accurate, and a lot of organizational tasks at both the new and used stores of Wax Trax. We need someone who naturally loves to stay busy and is willing to work! This job is also a great way to learn about recorded music and work your way into a counter sales position at our store.
