If you’re looking for a short term, 3-month, opportunity to work with one of Canada’s most iconic outdoor retailers we’ve got your dream job.
You provide exceptional member service, by sharing your expertise and advice to match people with gear that suits their needs. You provide exceptional service by talking to members about our products, helping them find what they need, asking them back and thanking them with a smile. You not only love sharing personal recommendations, but you are also dedicated to sharing MEC’s vision, values and passion for the outdoors.
MEC is an awesome place if you’re always learning and trying new things, like bouldering, yoga or trail running!
MEC is more than a store, and we’re more than a place to buy hats and backpacks. We’re physical and digital hubs for the outdoor community. People connect here, through our stores, online channels, over the phone, or through one of our leading events, clinics or services.
MEC is an equal opportunity employer. We’re proud to work with our people to create a diverse workplace, which accommodates individuals of all abilities, backgrounds and identities. We welcome and encourage applications from people with disabilities. Tell us what you need during the hiring process, and we’ll do our best to accommodate you.
If you like working with an inclusive, hands-on, collaborative team, who connect people with quality products to encourage active outdoor lives, then this is the team for you.
You are a ‘can do’ person who likes to learn new things. You are good natured and have a welcoming vibe. You’re outgoing and genuinely like helping people. Customer service is not just your skill, it’s your mindset. You will go out of your way to provide an excellent member experience. Previous retail or customer service experience are a plus, not a must. You can lift 50 lbs. and walk 10,000 steps per day.
You’re passionate about the outdoors. You have product knowledge in camping, cycling, packs or any other outdoor activity, that’s a great asset. You have open availability to work a variety of shifts 7 days a week.
