Our Retail Associates are critical to the store team. They are responsible for running cash lanes, merchandising, receiving and stocking shelves. They also ensure appropriate merchandise is ordered and properly presented to maximize sales and profits. We expect them to exhibit high customer service and support to the store management team, and over time, master a number of tasks that are critical to the running of the store. Associates are trained at their store and learn on the job with oversight from management.
“My team has been really helpful – they always assist me and do their best to train me. Every time I’ve needed assistance (from Head Office), they’ve always been there for me. My favourite parts (of the north) are the solitude, the quietness, the nature, the self-reflection – it makes me calm. Not having traffic – it’s less stressful in a way. The culture as well is something I enjoy here. This opportunity would be great for someone who’s really open minded and wants to work hard..~ Joey Arora, Pond Inlet, NU
In this role, you will have six months of full time contract work as a Retail Associate in a northern community. This is a great opportunity to try out the role and lifestyle for a period of time without permanently relocating. If you feel that the job is for you, you can choose to extend your contract or become permanent, which can open doors for career progression into management roles.
