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 an 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."

The role

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 with 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.

What a day in the life looks like:
  • Chat with members about products and connect them with what they're looking for. · Ask open-ended questions to understand members' needs.

  • Spread the word about MEC events and services.
  • Learn about new products, technology and features (including sustainability).
  • Above all, help more people in Canada get active outside, whether that means planning for a family camping trip or a massive backcountry expedition.
What do we offer:
  • More than just a job. We love what we do, and we offer to share our passion for the outdoors.
  • Competitive hourly rate and clear pay increase program.
  • Full-Time hours (37.5 a week).
  • Staff Discount and ProDeals (amazing deals straight from vendors).
  • Equipment Demonstration Program (EDP) gear rental program.

  • Paid Sick Days.
  • Tuition Reimbursement Program to expand your knowledge and skills. · Paid Volunteerism.
  • Growth opportunities.
  • Work in an amazing, collaborative team and much more!
