We're a Fitness retail company that serves the greater Toronto area.

Looking for employees that are able to work independently, take direction, can adapt to change, and able to follow a schedule. Punctuality is key.

Flaman Fitness is committed to customer satisfaction. We provide the highest quality equipment and the widest selection, backed by the expertise of a dedicated, knowledgeable and courteous staff.

Typically a shift would be 9am-6pm Mon-Fri, this varies day to day to do work volume, traffic, etc.

Salary: $32000-$38000 Annually

Both Roles will require a valid G license. There is the odd time that the helper will be on their own doing a drop off. The wages would remain the same at first, however based on performance and leadership qualities displayed we may choose to promote one of the candidates to a delivery team lead. If we find the right person and that happens, it would have a slight pay increase and is just more of a leadership role in charge of delegating tasks to the other installations team member.
