worker (Former Employee) – Brampton, ON – 18 March 2018
All kind of ways to avoid work are highly appreciated. Those who are pushing work to be done were fired with in one year. Management bread all sort of useless office position for ,,relatives,, However company pay really good money. Those money are well waited by team of cooperative vendor related people. The decisions of top management is simply ignored by politics. It is enough to have one of those politics as a friend to stay free of work and get money doing nothing. To those who are going to work for MEC Brampton I would advice to be prepared for all kind harassment and unfair treatment.
Wonderful work experience working both full and part time, excellent staff training and communication from management. Workplace culture was the highlight that made everyone feel like part of a team both in and out of the work environment. Always encouraged staff for learning new skills for best customer service and living an MEC healthy and active lifestyle.

It is a blast to work with products and activities that I am so passionate about. It is just as great to work with a team of like-mined people who care about getting people outdoors and helping people get active.

Working at MEC is rewarding and fun. Great place for people who like to keep busy and interact with like-minded individuals. Although moving up in the ranks can sometimes take a while, it is worth the wait.
MEC, un magasin de jouets pour les mordus de plein air !
Conseillère en vente (Current Employee) – Laval, QC – 26 April 2017
Je n'ai jamais vu une compagnie avec d'aussi belles valeurs ! La Co-op est une grosse famille. Ce n'est pas pour rien que nous appelons la clientèle des ''Membres'' et non des clients !
Les formations chez MEC sont complètes, tellement intéressantes et surtout en continue ! Nous sommes vraiment des conseiller(ères) et non des commis de plancher. Notre travail est d'assurer que les membres s'amusent avec du matériels de qualité lors de leurs aventures!
Les responsables du plancher sont très transparents avec leurs employés et ça j'aime ça ! La porte du bureau est toujours ouverte donc s'il y a quoi que se soit, ils sont là pour vous !
Pour les heures, je n'ai jamais eux de problèmes. Ils respectent vos disponibilités le plus possible.
Bref, j'adore mon travail et il y a vraiment possibilité de carrière chez MEC !
Frontline Staff & Member Service (Former Employee) – North Vancouver, BC – 4 April 2017
For a summer job employer seeking unskilled workers, MEC really put a lot of good training into their employees and helped ensure everyone was having a great time while at work. Shifts and times could be swapped and changed with ease if a situation arose, and the culture was very accepting and calm when it came to sales, goals, and other objectives.

Mountain Equipment Co-op is a very fun atmosphere to work in. Interacting with members as they are about to embark on adventures that they're gearing up for or hearing about previous trips is inspiring and interesting. The staff are friendly and well educated on all products.
Great place to learn about the outdoors and promote good customer service.
Cashier/Customer Service (Current Employee) – North York, ON – 5 February 2017
I really enjoy working here. The environment is great, and everyone is very approachable. They really care about the environment, and they send out a good sustainable message for anyone that is a member. They do the best that they can with their return policy (Rock Solid guarantee) to ensure the lifespan of the products. They want to promote an active lifestyle for the outdoors by offering different events and programs.

Most days I worked on the front line helping people find the gear to best suit their needs. I was trained in shoes, all apparel, tent and bags, backpacking hard goods, optics and instruments, packs, backpacks, and as a cashier. Some days I would work back stock where we used store mobiles to restock the selves full of product. I learned how to interact with members, a lot about gear, and multi member service. I really liked my co-workers they shared very similar interests as myself.
