From my understanding, everything from the store is character based and not account based. I wasn't able to buy a Hireling on another character because I don't own a house but if you look at my two character's store summary the Hireling Jobs didn't get applied to my other character.
To get to your character's store summary just go to the Cyclopedia -> Character -> Store Summary!
