OWEN SOUND JOBS

Positions: Occasional Warehouse Staff
Organization: Eat Local Grey Bruce Cooperative
Location: Owen Sound, Ontario

Positions:

Warehouse Employee (PT occasional / pool) – hours vary

We need super-people to help prep the warehouse and pack orders for delivery to co-op members throughout Grey Bruce. Regular part time hours while getting trained, occasional hours based on needs thereafter.

We generally look to our pool first in filling permanent positions. 

About us:

Eat Local Grey Bruce is a not-for-profit co-operative of producers and eaters. We operate an online farmers' market, aggregate food in our Owen Sound warehouse, and distribute to homes throughout Grey-Bruce.

Our operations are growing. This growth was steady in 2019 at 35%. Then it exploded in March 2020 with the emergence of COVID-19. Orders increased to almost 250% of our usual volume in a single week. By providing home delivery, we get food to people in a safe and efficient manner. Before COVID-19 we were delivering to 100+ households per week. Since mid-March we are now delivering to 200+ households, sustained at that level through stages of reopening. We continue to look at ways to continue to grow and mature as an organization.

Do you have what it takes to work in our organization?

  • Able to handle a fast-paced and dynamic environment
  • Very quick learner
  • Commitment to customer service
  • Great attention to detail
  • Motivated team player
  • Respectful of new and developing public health directives
  • Can make a commitment for at least 3 months
  • Can lift upwards of 50lbs

Compensation:

Employee wages start at $15/hr for warehouse staff, with a paid 1/2h hour lunch for all positions.

Additional benefits include a free membership and staff discount.
