Sales Associate ($19-$22/hr, more with experience)

Ottawa, Canada

At Metal Pros we do things differently. We are a small team who prides itself in having injected "young blood" in an otherwise dinosaur industry. We have innovated every aspect of our jobs resulting in 8 consecutive years of growth. Every team member can learn and be involved with all aspects of running the business, from warehouse to light fabrication, to sales, deliveries, data management/ programming, website development/ content management, procurement and business administration.

As owners, we care about your future and want to make sure that your experience at Metal Pros can open doors to any future endeavor. This is a rigorous but fulfilling job for those who want to work hard and learn a great deal in a short period of time about what it takes to become successful. Our passion is to continuously improve ourselves and each other and our mission statement is to help individuals and small businesses succeed. We have over 9,000 happy customers located across Canada.

As a Sales associate, one of the first things we do is find your strengths so we can change your title accordingly. Some of our titles are: "Problem solver", "Email Slayer", Speedy Gonzales", "Human Forklift" & "Fast & Furious" (formerly known as sales). We don't just see ourselves as sales people to small businesses but as part of their extended team, helping in every way we can to fulfill customer's needs. We provide our customers with over 6,000 metal products, cut to size and purchased from over 60 different suppliers, but we also have the key to a large network of companies and we use that knowledge to connect skills and individuals creating collaborations and synergies that help businesses grow and succeed. We sponsor dozens of University engineering teams all across Canada realizing that students are both our future work force and customers.

As a Sales Associate (until we find you a more suitable title), you will be predominantly working behind the counter in front of a computer. You will answer phones and emails and use an ERP system, Gmail, Microsoft Excel and Google Keep as predominant software. You will embrace technology, as technology is our greatest communicator and management tool. You will learn our products and how to collaborate with the rest of the team by spending time in the warehouse, fulfilling orders, organizing, putting stock away and performing other activities, helping you understand all aspects of the business.

This position is both creative and rigorous by nature, and you need to think outside the box. We expect the candidate to be proactive and have a "get it done" spirit. To be successful, you will have solid problem solving skills, great attention to detail, be full of energy and eager to learn.
