Temporary Buyer

In addition to our usual team of Costume Buyers, we’re adding a couple more to help us out with our busy Halloween season. Listen, we know: it’s hard to imagine that the home of HalloweenCostumes.com could use extra people to help manage many costumes in the fall, but it’s the truth.  Crazy, huh?

That’s where you come in. Yes, you! You number-loving, pop-culture junkie, you.

As you can probably guess, being a Halloween costume buyer requires a lot of knowledge about trends in movies, television and even a few Internet memes, but that’s actually only a very small part of what we need in a Temporary Costume Buyer. In fact, being a Buyer actually involves a lot more number analysis and navigating through the Great Excel Forest of Data to make decisions than anything else. There is a lot of drilling deep, deep down into the deep, dark, depths of data.  Down to a single product at a single size, where we look at sell-through percentage, potential restock issues, tie-ins to trends, whether new products may compete with our current selection and tons more variables.

Then our Buyers do it again and again and again and again and again…

Did we mention how much you’d better love Excel? Because you better.

If you’re the kind of person who loves an intellectual challenge with a steep learning curve, makes decisions backed up by hard data and evidence, and understands why somebody out there might want to buy a horrifying, yet sexy, clown outfit – then you might be exactly who we are looking for. Hours for this position are flexible, and could include PT or FT hours depending on candidates’ availabilities. 

Essential Duties and Responsibilities
  • Perform data entry tasks
  • Analyze large sets of data to make recommendations regarding pricing updates
  • Competitor research
  • Product visibility research and recommendations
  • Execute price changes based on sell-through metrics
  • Other duties as assigned
Requirements and Skill Sets
  • High school diploma or equivalent
  • Experience with Microsoft Excel and the rest of the Microsoft Office Suite. But mostly Excel
  • Ability to make informed decisions quickly, based on collected data
  • Detailed and organized. We’re talking about needing the type of person who would slap a label on a label maker
  • Preference for working independently, but can still function well in a team environment
  • Loves to work with large (massive!) sets of data
  • Did we mention Excel yet?
  • Effective at communicating new ideas
Preferred Skills
  • B.A. or B.S. in Finance, Accounting, Chemistry, Mathematics, or really any other analytical discipline
  • Inventory or retail management experience
  • Ridiculous amounts of pop-cultural knowledge
