About Us


Charles Metsker started mapping the Pacific NW in the early 1900s and the name lives on as a retail map store in the heart of downtown in the Pike Place Market. We love to help people plan their next adventure, decorate their walls, or commemorate their trip to Seattle. And we never get tired of hearing (many times a day), “this is the best store ever!” We’re looking for a rockstar part-time sales associate to join our awesome team. This is a summer position for now (April or May through August or September), but could turn into a longer-term position depending on staffing needs. 


About the Job

If you love geography and customer service, this may be the job for you! We’re looking for someone who can:

  • Help customers figure out which maps or products best suit their needs
  • Process in-store, web and phone orders
  • Check in inventory
  • Help with packaging and shipping orders
  • Restock and tidy up as needed


Who You Are
  • Passionate about maps and/or geography and customer service
  • Motivated self-starter
  • A multi-tasker and detail-oriented (it’s easy to get distracted here!)
  • Inclusive, positive, creative, and a team player
  • Willing to learn on the job and ask questions
  • Available some weekend days
  • Have the ability to stand for long periods of time and occasionally lift heavy objects


  • Point-of-Sale experience 
  • Experience in a bookstore or souvenir shop
  • Purchasing experience
  • E-commerce experience
  • Geographic familiarity with Seattle and the PNW



This is a great fit for people who want to be around maps and really enjoy customer service. We offer $19.97 an hour, an ORCA card, paid sick days, an employee discount and a discount at Market businesses, and a fun group of coworkers.
