Duties and Responsibilities

This role involves both manufacturing and installation of our products. Primarily consisting of pre-hang doors, garage doors, and countertops, our products require expert craftsmanship and installation to ensure customer satisfaction.

Using a strong attention to detail and experience with a variety of tools, you’ll ensure that our products meet and exceed customer expectations. When dealing with customers and coworkers, you will bring a positive and professional attitude.

When you’re not working on installations or preparations, you’ll be helping out around the shop as needed—receiving orders, organizing inventory, cleaning, and prepping for jobs.

Additional Details

This is a full-time, permanent position at our store on the outskirts of Powell River. Typically, you’ll work from 8am to 5pm Monday through Friday. Most of your work will be done right in our shop, especially at the beginning of your time with us. Our equipment is in great shape, which means you won’t have to deal with snags on the job.

You’ll start out at $19 with steady, full-time hours. We also offer a generous benefits plan, vacation, discounted building supplies, and help with buying your own Apple computer.

We have people on staff who have worked here since the 1990s. 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.
