In your free time do you find yourself reading about the latest NICS updates?


If you answered yes to most of these questions, you sound like a good fit for our Team! AZFirearms.com is a small, family owned and operated, gun shop in Avondale, AZ, with a huge nationwide online presence. We are looking for someone to help lead our Team, who will require very little training, and can help us continue to grow the AZFirearms.com brand into a household name. We pride ourselves in being able to appeal to the entire spectrum from the most experienced gun owner, to people who have never even touched a firearm before, and everything in between. We are looking for someone with a teacher's-spirit, and a desire to serve and solve. If this still sounds like you, read on...



What Are We Looking For?


We serve hunters, sports shooters, collectors, military, and law enforcement, so a broad base of knowledge and experience is important.


Previous experience in a retail gun store, and therefore familiarity with ATF Form 4473 We pride ourselves on service, therefore excellent customer service skills are imperative. Since we serve a broad base of first time, and the growing market of female gun owners, a friendly and approachable demeanor is a must.


Having superior communication skills are important to communicating effectively as a Team Leader, reporting effectively to Management, and helping understand customers' needs.


We use many handwritten tags, and therefore clear and legible handwriting skills are needed. Our sales team uses a computerized Point of Sale program, so you will need to have excellent computer skills. Communication between Team Members is something we highly value, so you must have text and email capabilities.  Your ability to speak Spanish is also important, but not required.


Ability to work within a cohesive team atmosphere that extends to the Auction House and our Radio Show. We enjoy being a social group off-hours, and are not looking for the Lone Ranger.


Knowledge of who we are and what we stand for, our culture is rich and we value it. 

Enthusiastically using social media to help the public appreciate our culture of fun and service, as well as new products as they come in is a vital part of growing a business in the digital age and you will be expected to utilize the various platforms several times each week.


Appreciation of who our sponsors are - our customers come in simply because our sponsors trust us, so it is imperative to be able to relate to those customers.


We place a high value on flexibility, and occasionally attend off-site gun shows, therefore your ability & willingness to work Saturdays and Gun Shows is important.


And, of course, you must have reliable transportation, the ability to work for $12-$15 per hour with no benefits, and maintain a professional appearance are all important factors as well.
