MEC is more than a store. We’re a hub for the outdoor community, a leader in sustainability, and a place where you can be yourself. People come to us to try new things and plan new adventures – and as a store Advisor, you’ll be there to help make it all happen.
Members (what we call customers) visit us for gear and advice on hiking, camping, climbing, cycling, watersports, snowsports and travel. You’ll chat with people who are planning everything from dream trips to weekend getaways, and first-timers to outdoor experts.
You’ll also have some pretty incredible coworkers who might just become future activity buddies; we asked staff what their favourite thing was about working for MEC, and the overwhelming answer was “the people.”
As an Advisor, you’ll make MEC a great place to visit. You’ll give exceptional member service by matching people with gear that suits their needs, and you’ll share your real-world experience about products. You’ll help in other ways too, like visual merchandising or lending a hand to other staffers, and you’ll also have a chance to grow and try new things. If you love the outdoors, learning about gear and connecting with people, this is the role for you.
