About Us

Barbecues Galore has five gorgeous retail stores in Canada — three in Ontario and two in Calgary — offering the nation’s best collection of barbecues, fireplaces, and patio furniture. Our ‘must-see showrooms’ for amazing places for everyone planning to improve their backyard oasis.

Our culture is built on respect, exemplary customer service, and of course an unwavering passion for food and grilling. All we need is a few new team members with similar values fill out our roster of A-players.

We’re looking to add new members to our team with similar values and fresh perspectives to fill out our roster. Sales experience is a plus, but we’ve got a fool-proof training system in place to ensure you’re a barbecue (and patio furniture) expert with the confidence to help customers find the best fit for their vision and budget. Although this is a seasonal position, we notice hard working and driven individuals which often lead to permanent positions on our team.

Job Description

As a Barbecues Galore Sales Associate you will have the opportunity to work with a friendly and hard-working team in an exciting, fast-paced, and results-driven environment. You must have sales and retail experience for this position.

We prioritize superior customer service:

  • Giving a smile and greeting
  • Being attentive, listening to the customers’ problems/needs/wants
  • Using interpersonal skills to create connections
  • Being informative and honest to gain a customer’s trust
  • Maintaining a professional and courteous image to all customers – in store AND over the phone
  • Ability to maintain relationships after they’ve left the store (whether they’ve made a purchase, requested a quote, or were just browsing)

You are here to give the customer a long lasting solution and a memorable shopping experience, while utilizing your proven selling skills and high product knowledge to convert opportunity into results. The sales associate must also be able to handle transactions through the point-of-sale computer system.


  • Engage, and re-engage, with customers from the moment they walk in the door
  • Strive to constantly improve and grow personal sales through increased product knowledge, and hands-on exposure to products
  • An ongoing commitment to any training or development that is necessary to carry out all sales functions
  • Respond to all customer requests promptly and to completion. Ensure proper follow-up and take ownership of all service-related issues as they arise
  • Understand the point-of-sale computer system in a timely fashion to ensure the professional completion of all sales transactions
  • Ensure all store displays are kept full, and that all merchandise is to be clean at all times
  • Help to maintain all areas of the store in a uniform manner
  • Ensure that all products carried are displayed, notably getting new items on the sales floor as soon as possible


  • A genuine desire to help people and a healthy respect for co-workers are absolutely essential qualities we’re looking for when adding people to our team
  • Previous sales experience, while an asset, is not required as ongoing training will be provided
  • A general level of knowledge working with computers. We’ll train you on our system, but email is a huge part of our customer interactions
  • Must be able to work weekends
  • An interest in barbecues and food is always welcome! We’ve got competitive barbecue teams on our staff, as well as some exemplary home grill masters

Compensation and Benefits

  • Compensation varies based on experience
  • We offer bonuses and SPIFs on specific vendor sales
  • Flexible scheduling and no late nights, we’re only open until 6 pm!
  • Lots of food. We have a lot of barbecues and we love to fire them up. We’re always throwing something on the grill on a Saturday afternoon for the staff to enjoy
