Employment

Thank you for your employment interest in Mast General Store. We have been a part of Western North Carolina since 1883 and carry on the traditions of an old country general store in all of our North Carolina mountain locations, which include Valle Crucis, Boone, Waynesville, Hendersonville, Asheville, Winston-Salem, as well as Greenville and Columbia, South Carolina, Knoxville, Tennessee, and Roanoke, Virginia.

The Mast Store is different from most any other retail stores in several ways. We are extending a legacy, particularly in our Valle Crucis locations, of customer service and neighborliness that isn't typically found today. Our stores are usually located in buildings that are unique in architecture and history and have stories of their own to tell, so for that reason we also consider ourselves to be in the "entertainment business."

If you enjoy working with people as a part of a team, having fun at work, learning about new products and sharing your knowledge with others, being creative, honoring commitments and exhibiting responsibility, then we'd like to talk with you about the Mast General Store.

Each year we have a number of jobs available on a seasonal basis in all locations from May through early January. Most of these positions are front-line customer service personnel involved in meeting our guests' needs during their visit with us in the stores. Even though we prefer to promote from within for our management level openings, at times we do search outside of the company. These positions, when available, will be listed with specific requirements.

Your application will be kept for a period of 30 days. If positions open up that you would be qualified for, it will be reviewed. After this time period expires, you will need to re-apply for any positions of interest.

Mast General Store is an equal opportunity employer.
