Seasonal Front End Staff 2018

Whynot Adventure Nova Scotia, Canada

Job Description

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:

  • second language (french, german, mandarin)
  • Mi’kmaq heritage
  • equanimity
  • digital marketing experience
  • savvy with social media
  • desire to have a vegetable patch (okay, this isn’t that important, but it sure is cool)

Specifics:

  • Anticipated Start Date: May – June 2018
  • Anticipated End Date: August – October 2018
  • Posting End Date: April 2018
  • Positions: 3
  • Wage: $12.00-$14.00 per hour plus tips
  • Hours: 30-48 hours per week

How to Apply

Send a cover letter (important!) detailing what you've accomplished (in line with this job) that you're proud of and what you intend to do for us and how that'll translate to us becoming the best adventure tourism company in the world. Please include your resume, too. (info@whynotadventure.ca)
