Barbecues Galore hiring online customer service team member in Calgary

About Us

You are the consummate team player, self-motivated and responsible, and you can use the word “spatchcock” in a sentence. We are Barbecues Galore, the kind-hearted, independent giant of the Canadian barbecue industry, and we’ve been looking for you.

Barbecues Galore has five gorgeous retail stores — three in Ontario and two in Calgary — offering the nation’s best collection of barbecues, fireplaces and patio furniture. Our culture is built on respect, exemplary customer service, and of course an unflagging passion for grilled chicken wings. All we need is a few new team members with similar values and fresh perspectives to fill out our roster.

We're hiring an Online Customer Service Associate at our North Calgary location.

We offer more flexible hours and a less rigid structure than most retail organizations. We also have some terrific staff lunches and lots of fun gear to play with. However, it’s still retail. If you’re at ease with all of that, then by all means come in for a chat.

Job Description

As a Barbecues Galore Online Customer Service 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 will be doing a variety of tasks, from communicating online orders into our database, to helping online customers figure out which barbecue is best for them! Our online store is getting busier as each day gets closer to barbecue season, so we need a self-motivated and computer savvy person to help us get those orders processed.

  • Maintaining a professional and courteous image to all customers – online AND over the phone

Responsibilities

  • An ongoing commitment to any training or development that is necessary to carry out all online order entry and online customer service duties
  • Respond to all customer requests promptly and to completion (chat, email, or phone). Ensure proper follow up and take ownership of all service-related issues as they arise

  • Ensure a certain amount of daily online orders are entered into our system for shipping or customer pickup
  • Inform website department when stock of a product sold online is depleting and needs to limited for purchasing
