For success in this position, the ideal candidate must possess wine knowledge and sales ability, an interest in continued learning and growth, combined with the intuitive ability to guide the guest experiences in a flexible and creative nature. They must strive to build a strong rapport with every guest and create opportunities to generate retail sales, RH Wine Club membership sign ups, and a deep connection to the RH Wine Vault.  A passion for hospitality and sales is essential, and the best candidates will share our belief that providing unreasonable hospitality is one of the most effective and personal ways to connect with guests.  

 

The right candidate will have a working knowledge of wine, a desire to be actively involved in service, and a dynamic and intuitive approach to sales and meeting company goals.
