“The best part of working for Epicure is the amazing group of people.”
For many of us, the element of our workday we enjoy most is the people we work with – after all, without a great group of co-workers, backed by a company that values its staff, the days would go by pretty slowly!
It’s one of the reasons that team members at Epicure – people who have supported the North Saanich-based direct sales food company for five, eight, even 12 years – invite you to join the family.
Not only does the locally grown business offer employees a friendly, equal-opportunity work environment with room to grow, but also an extensive benefits package that includes everything from tuition grants to a signing bonus (not to mention 40 per cent off those amazing products!)
“The culture sets the stage for every single aspect of the company. It’s something we hold dear to our hearts – loving what we do and doing it the best we can,” says Basil Onyia. “Employees are the most important aspect of every company. (At Epicure) I found that family feel.”
While Epicure products have long earned their deserved reputation as a go-to kitchen staple, COVID-19 has further fuelled the company’s growth. Not only was the business deemed essential as a food provider, but as people stay closer to home, they’re cooking up all manner of tasty meals in the kitchen, explains Christine Magill, Epicure’s Vice President, Human Resources. With the holidays approaching, fall is already the company’s busiest season, and as more families discover the opportunity to create amazing dishes quickly, that growth is poised to continue.
While diverse opportunities are available, Epicure is currently filling positions on the operations side in particular – those involving the preparation, packaging and distribution of Epicure products. You’ll enjoy a busy day and a variety of different tasks, all well-supported by your co-workers and leaders. Positions are well-suited to a variety of individuals, including those looking for full-time, part-time and flexible shifts. (Need a 9-to-2 shift while the kids are in school, for example? Find it here!)
Epicure also offers a variety of pretty unique incentives, in addition to the competitive wages:
- Post-secondary students who stay on the job until December can get one of their courses paid for.
- High school students can receive up to $500 for an RESP or credit for a particular activity.
- The Referral program is easy to access and is open to the public as well as Home Team Members
- Newcomers who are on the job until December will receive a $250 signing bonus in January.
- 40 per cent off Epicure products.
