Shepherd & Schaller is Wausau’s Outdoor Store. Serving central Wisconsin since 1949, we proudly offer the finest ski, bike, camping, water sports and paddling equipment, active apparel, and footwear in the region. We’re all about the experience, ours and yours. We’re tuned-in and turned-on by an active outdoor lifestyle, year-round.
Do you walk the talk? We’re always looking for the right people-person. Dependable, friendly, outgoing, detail oriented, energetic, supportive and a self-starter. You work as hard as you play. If you can see the big picture to provide support and solutions to our customers and teammates in a fast-paced, multi-faceted environment, we should talk.
Spend your free time on the trails or the water? Pour over ski equipment blogs? Love sharing your passion? Our teammates are the face of our business, providing expert and enthusiastic advice to guide people to products that meet their goals. Are you willing to support back-shop functions and love learning? That’s what it takes, because this is no big box shopping experience.
Work-life balance. The outdoor industry wrote the book. Ski before work? Of course! Commute by bike? We encourage it. Coach the team? We love it! We’re all this this together, so your new ideas are welcome. Suggest a new product, tell us about a favorite place to play or a club that you support, develop a better system, create and contribute. We enjoy industry perks like product demos and pro pricing on the coolest gear for outdoor enthusiasts and we’re proud to offer brands that support Fair Trade, use recycled and organic materials and give back in exciting ways. The local events we host and support make a difference in our community and most importantly the customers we serve are our friends. To us, “It’s personal.”
We offer daytime, evening and weekend shifts, but not late nights. You’ll have time to play, for classes and for family. Though we’re flexible about scheduling and will work around your other obligations, you can expect to work key time frames including the holiday shopping season and ski season event weekends. Lifting and carrying up to 30 lbs. is required. Couch potatoes need not apply.
