Your neighbors are the lakes, trees, bears and moose in the greatest canoe country in the world!
Our staff work 40/hours per week and occasionally will work overtime. We pay overtime after 40 hours. We have a small staff of 12-14 so it is important that you are able to work in a team based setting where you work and live together. Good communication and problem solving skills are important.
We are currently looking for additional staffers from August 1st - September 30th
We are looking for individuals that are friendly and can easily converse with customers, may have previous retail or office experience, may have previous boat/motor experience, a self starter that needs little direction once trained, trustworthy and honest, willing to go the extra mile when asked to do so and willing to help and assist employees less capable than yourself. Seagull is a team effort every day and you work directly with the owners.
