Port Carling – Assistant Store Manager (Summer Season)

algonquinoufit Algonquin Outfitters



Algonquin Outfitters (AO) is searching for our next Assistant Store Manager (ASM) for our Port Carling location. The ASM roles with AO are development opportunities that provide someone with a keen interest in, and talent for, the retail sales environment to learn the management side of our business and develop into a member of our leadership team.

As an Assistant Store Manager, you will be one of our leaders who helps create an awesome experience and deliver excellent customer service every day! Specifically, you will help our Manager lead the team with all functions associated with daily retail and rental operations. This includes store operations (open/close, daily sales plans, curbside sales, etc.), team leadership and development (training, coaching, scheduling), sales (driving sales, meeting targets, selling on the floor, customer service, etc.), and merchandising & inventory (inventory tracking, creating product displays, promoting brands and events, special orders, and receiving and stocking shipments).

You will bring to us outstanding interpersonal skills with an engaging and approachable personality. A knowledge and love of the outdoors, apparel, and gear and passion to live an active lifestyle also forms part of the ideal AO employee. You will have a desire to continue to grow as a leader and will have skill in coaching, motivating, and supporting varying team dynamics. As an ASM, you will need to have comfort with presenting information and the ability to respond to questions, remaining calm under pressure. And you understand that selling is a function of this role and will want to share your techniques and success with your team.

AO is a retail operation so evening, weekend and some holiday work is part of the norm. As you know, in a retail setting you also need to be able to be on your feet throughout much of the day. The successful candidate will be expected to work alongside their team daily to train, motivate and coach them on how to provide top-quality service and knowledge to our customers.

Come join the AO Team and have fun in the great outdoors!

If you think this opportunity sounds as awesome as we think it is, send us a copy of your resume and a brief note on who you are and why you would be a great addition to the AO team.

We are happy to share the more detailed job outline with prospective applicants.
