Jack Wolfskin is at Shepherd & Schaller

Meet the family: Jack Wolfskin

“We respect the diversity of nature and all living things. Our earth is simply the most beautiful place in the universe and we only have this one. We do everything we can to protect it and we want to experience it and share it with others.” -Jack Wolfskin

And that is exactly what they do!

The brand’s entire product collection is 75% PFC-free (PFCs are pollutants that do not break down when released into the environment) and it’s a percentage that is continuing to rise. With that being said, in January 2016, Jack Wolfskin was the first brand to win the ISPO Eco Achievement Award, a distinction that, until now, only specific products had been recognized for.  It was awarded because of Jack Wolfskin’s sustainability commitments, including exclusively using Organic Certified Cotton since 2013 and attaining the Fair Wear Foundation Award (labor conditions) multiple years in a row.

Outdoor enthusiasts around the world are recognizing this brand that started only in 1981, in a small German town. Jack Wolfskin is not only the largest outdoor brand in its home country, Germany, but also in Austria and Switzerland, and is in the top three brands in China.

But if this company is so renoun, why haven’t we heard about it in the United States?

Jack Wolfskin only brought this company to the states less than a year ago and it’s about to take off with outdoor chains itching to get their hands on it! As of now, there are only a handful of stores that carry this brand and Shepherd & Schaller in Wausau is one of the few! We are the only store in Wisconsin carrying the brand and we’re excited to share it with all of you!

Can’t Get Enough of Shep’s? Join Our Team!

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.

Tell us about your passions.  Drop a note, send a video or stop by for a visit. There’s room to grow with us to create a satisfying career here in Downtown Wausau, WI.
