We're hiring a

School Services Specialist

Kincaid's Music is a musical instrument and accessory retail store (brick & mortar and online) that helps people find the instruments and accessories they need to make great music that positively impacts humans and the world. Yet many, especially parents of school band and orchestra participants, don’t know what they need. We help them find instruments affordably and guide them through their (or their child’s) musical journey.


School Services Specialist


Director of Sales




Springfield, OH


Support the operations of the School Services Division, completing system-based tasks in order to ensure that all "backstage" functions are running smoothly, efficiently, and accurately. This is essential to providing the best service possible to our school customers.

School band and orchestra directors are the gatekeepers that allow us to interact directly with parents of beginning and advancing musicians. This means caring for music educators and school administrators is critical for us to be able to continue to help as many people begin and advance in instrumental music as possible.


Three Primary Roles

The School Services Specialist will have three primary responsibilities in their position.

Order Fulfillment & Follow-up

Ensure all orders placed by our music educators are ordered in a timely, invoiced properly, and staged for delivery. Communicate with directors and school administrators to ensure accuracy of billing, purchase orders, etc.

Repair Workflow

As instrument repairs come in from schools, they must be entered into our system, sent through the shop in an order conducive to 1-week turnaround times, then invoiced and staged for delivery back to the schools.

In-Store Customer Service

Assist with customer service in our building - answer phones and help walk-in customers by identifying needs and getting them to the right team member promptly, or stepping in yourself, when necessary, to give each customer a 5-star experience.

Show our prospective customers that you understand them better than anyone, care about them more than our competitors, and help them by offering our products and services!

Role Competencies

Organized & Detail-Oriented

You are not only able to keep yourself organized, but keep the Music Education Specialists (road reps) and Repair Technicians organized, as well. You have meticulous attention to detail, keeping the team working as a well-oiled machine.

Team Player

You don't mind being in a background role and enjoy working closely with others. You'll be working hard to make the team look good for the sake of our customers.

Customer Centric

You focus on how we can create a world-class experience for our school and in-store customers and improve customer satisfaction.

Good Time Management

You are great at time management and know how to protect others’ time so they are able to focus on their most important tasks. 


You are able to be fluid and flexible and do not cave when there is additional stress (and also know what needs to be done when things are less stressful to move goals forward).
