Maybe this job title isn’t as glamorous as Equipment Manager or Canoe Guide, but it sure is a hell of a lot of fun. Some days are so busy quitting time will arrive in the blink of an eye. On slower days, usually when it’s raining, we’ll have you puttering around doing odd jobs such as sweeping, giving the washrooms a deep clean and organizing. It’s like working in a fast food restaurant, except it’s a bit more hip, and the pay is better, and you’re serving canoes instead of burgers, and you don’t go home smelling like the fryers. Okay, it’s nothing like a fast food restaurant.
The best part of this position is the camaraderie. Our team is a group of friends (don’t worry, we add new friends each season) who have vegetable gardens, brew beer and ‘booch, explore the backcountry and travel in the off season. There’s usually a campfire at least once a week.
We usually start our staff at $12.50/hr and bump that up to $13/hr once you hit your stride. Payday is every second week. Sometimes we’ll drop some beer at the office on the in-between weeks so there’s still something to look forward to.
You’ll be at the head of the pack if you bring these to the table:
