Duties and Responsibilities

The most important part of your job will be helping customers. Along with a team of fellow salespeople, you’ll spend most of each day guiding customers to their finish lines using your industry knowledge and superb customer service skills.

When you’re not helping customers, you’ll be a great teammate. You’ll design and build in-store displays, pitch in with inventory, keep the store tidy, and help ring people through. This is a big store, so there’s always work to be done. We have a helpful team, and many hands make light work.

Ultimately, we’re hoping that you’ll be able to sell our larger packages, like building materials, doors or windows, and manage that customer relationship until their job is complete.

Additional Details

This is a full-time, permanent position at our store on the outskirts of Powell River. You’ll work from 8am-5pm, or 7am – 5pm Monday to Friday. You’ll never work weekends, and there’s flexibility around hours when needed.

Our starting wage is $16 per hour, though experience will be considered. Bonuses are available based on individual and store performance. We also offer a generous benefits plan, vacation, and discounted building supplies.

We have people on staff who have been with us for decades. If you asked them why they’ve stayed, they’ll tell you that we take good care of our people. All our employees are full-time, because we want them to have security and benefits. They’d also tell you that we have a lot of fun together. The atmosphere is casual, and the management takes a hands-off approach. We hire great people and we let them do their jobs - you won’t be micromanaged here.
