Are you an outgoing individual with experience in customer service?  You could be part of the team that creates some of New York’s most beloved entertainment experiences.

With national visibility and local accolades as the tri-state area’s top source for family friendly entertainment, Historic Hudson Valley (www.hudsonvalley.org) educates and entertains more than 275,000 visitors a year through our school programs, house tours, and large-scale special events like the Great Jack O’Lantern Blaze, Horseman’s Hollow, and LIGHTSCAPES.

Historic Hudson Valley, Westchester County’s largest cultural organization, seeks enthusiastic, computer savvy individuals to join its sales and hospitality team – selling merchandise and tickets in a fast-paced museum shop. 

These are part-time, seasonal positions (April – December) that offer and require a lot of flexibility (weekend, holiday, and evening availability are a must.)

You must have a friendly manner, and experience working with the public in customer service, sales or hospitality.  Computer skills and retail experience are required.  Experience with a point of sale system is a plus.

Besides a congenial working environment, starting pay rate of $11.00 per hour and flexible hours, Historic Hudson Valley offers:

  • FREE and reduced admission to our events and sites for you and your immediate family
  • FREE and reduced admission to other participating historic sites and museums, including MoMA, the Met, the Frick, and many more
  • Museum shop and café discounts
  • Working for a highly regarded organization that creates extraordinary experiences for large audiences.

To apply, please send a letter of interest and resume to jobs@hudsonvalley.org.  Please include “Sales Associate” in the subject line.  Candidates of diverse ethnic and racial background are encouraged to apply.  No calls please.

Should your skills and qualifications meet our requirements we will contact you to schedule an interview.  If we do not contact you, we will keep your resume on file for one year in the event that another position for which you may be suited becomes available.  Thank you for your interest in Historic Hudson Valley.
