There were many lateral opportunities within the company. I was able to meet many people from around the world. Flexible break times. Celebrations/achievements were recognized.

everyone seems to be fully engaged and in good terms with own work.
No visible "office politics" or difficult people, or departments detected.

The above creates a relaxed and focus work attitude that should be added to the compensation.

Used to be great, fun, strong culture. New CEO means cost cutting, no culture, or a culture of fear, terrible engagement, and low morale. Unorganized, changes can either take ages to happen, or they make them so quickly the follow through is terrible and extra work is required to clean up the mess.
Has potential though, and co-workers are great.

MEC has a really fun and encouraging work environment. The values that MEC holds as a company, and the respect with which they treat their staff, are unlike any I've experienced at other retail locations.
Plus, you get to have awesome interactions with co-op members where you chat about outdoor adventures and get to help them find the right equipment and plan for their next endeavor! It feels collaborative and respectful as you get to share your knowledge and experiences with your customers, just as they share their knowledge and experience with you! There's always new things to learn.

Everyone at MEC wants to see one another succeed and are always challenging each other to do the best they can. A very good work/life balance and a lot of like-minded people.

Great place to work, easy going, just didn't pay me enough for where I live (Toronto) and didn't negotiate wage at all when I brought up another opportunity.

Picked orders on a daily basis and worked 6 days a week at times.
Work a lot of overtime and holidays.

Staff and management are friendly.

Workplace is in Brampton and close to 407, Steeles or Airport Rd.

The best thing about this place is the relaxed atmosphere and workplace culture. The people are friendly and co-workers become friends easily. Most enjoyable part of job is driving machines around the distribution center. Management is friendly so long as you do your job well. Pay is good for the work that is done. It helped put me through school with no debt. Job is unionized so vacation is based on seniority (translation if you're new or low seniority you get to take the worst vacation times). The downside is that most jobs are very repetitive and boring and there is very little opportunity for advancement or new learning/skills acquisition.
Points positifs
Occasional Free Lunches and T-shirts, Staff Discounts, Good Wage, Good Benefits, Nice People, Cares about employees, Lots of overtime, Relaxed and Friendly, Union
Points négatifs
Hard to get vacation, Limited advancement, Not challenging work, Boring, Repetitive and physical work

Love Mtn Equipment Co-Op as a Store & place to work....
I really enjoyed the short tine that I did work there. Other staff & Management were helpful & encouraging to work along side, with & for. Overall a great place to work. The niggt time Backroom Stock were good fun & I would recommend applying for a job here but it all depends on whst specific area of the Store you are most interested in work in.

If you love the outdoors, this is an amazing retail environment to work in. You learn a lot about so many different products and get some pretty great perks for working there.

I absolutely love working for MEC, but the reason for that isn't the job but the people. MEC attracts some truly amazing people, and there love for the outdoors is affectionate. MEC is more than just a retail gig, it becomes a place filled with friends. So supportive and caring. 10/10 recommend working for them.

5-6 day training-only days sets you up with everything you need to know even if you aren't super familiar with outdoor equipment. Work day is split between areas throughout your shift to keep you fresh, also an hour for break. Management super receptive, knowledgeable, and supportive. You can be dealing with quite a few people at once and may get stressful but backup is available at all times. Extremely relaxed environment with managers who are understanding and give you room to grow and work while also providing constructive feedback along the way. Many many perks from discounts to free gear to free trips.

Great work colleagues and a collaborative work environment make it a top destination for retail professionals.
Retail managers are allowed a lot of autonomy to make decisions within their business units which makes it an exciting challenge for business-focused professionals.

MEC is an incredible place to work, if you can afford it. The pay is not amazing and the hours can be limited. Not that they don't want to pay their employees fairly, I believe they are just not able to pay them as much as they should. Overall though its a great place to work, especially if you are only looking for Seasonal Work.
Points positifs
Discounts! Friendly people
Points négatifs
Seasonal hours, lower pay

Firstly the problem with MEC at the time I work there is they over sell the possibility of status positions. Yes they do happen but don't count on them and if you do get one they expect a lot more work.

However that being said the most content people had other things on the go and needed a little extra cash

If you try and survive off MEC you will be un happy.


The benefits they offer part-time employees, such as a health care allowance up to $300, are better than most companies. But there is not much in the way of a career offered.

Working at MEC was an amazing experience,

You are able to participate in staff training courses that can take you all across Alberta and BC. There are endless possibilities for new and excited experiences, and there are great staff deals on gear.


The typical day can be a little slow if you work on the floor or at the till, but there are exceptionally busy periods as well. Customers are often very appreciative of the advice and recommendations you give them.


The management overall was very good when I worked there, though I hear there have been changes since then.
Points positifs
long lunches, free used gear bin, staff draws, staff discounts, staff training courses, staff appreciation nights.
Points négatifs
sometimes very slow, management shifting to a more corporate/sales perspective, low hours of availability, hard to get full-time status.
