This is a great summer job opportunity if you like working outside, with a partner and are willing to work! Ex-Sell Sales and Merchandising is looking to hire a team of 2 representatives in the Edmonton area, with people who are interested in working 25-40 hours per week from March until the end of July. The busiest months will be April-June.
We are hiring representatives for a major outdoor lawn and garden product company. This position will involve working with a partner and spending time in the garden centres of major big box stores, such as Home Depot. If you like working outside, have an interest in gardening, or experience in landscaping this could be an excellent position for you. Full training on all the products you represent will be provided March 4th and 5th (you must be available to attend).
The position of an in-store representative will be responsible for the following at their assigned stores:
• Building and maintaining relationships with management at the store level
• General merchandising
• Building secondary displays
• Educating customers about the lawn and garden products.
The ideal candidates will have outgoing personalities and are willing to get their hands dirty. Candidates also need to have physical strength as this can be a labour intensive job; requiring the lifting of product to shelves, cleaning and moving bags of product, and occasionally the moving of skids. Experience working with retail chains or in landscaping would be an asset.
The hours for this job are flexible, you will be given a set number of hours to work in your stores, but the two of you may make your own schedule. However you should be visiting your stores every couple of days, and as mentioned weekend work is required for a portion of the product education component of the job and special events. This job is compensated hourly ($15) with mileage paid for any out of town travel. At least one of the partners must have access to a car or reliable transportation. Regular computer access is essential for reporting and communication, as well as the ability to take and upload photos (a cell phone camera is more than fine).
If you feel you would be a good fit for this job, please apply with an updated resume. Also feel free to apply alone or with someone you can work well with and would also be a great fit for this role.
