Does Mountain Equipment Company assist with or provide childcare?

Pros

Getting a job at MEC was dream come true. MEC lives its values more than any other company I have worked for. The focus is always about getting people outdoors and supporting out staff. I have only been at MEC for a short period of time. In this short time, I have seen so many positive things—engagement surveys, benefit surveys, policy revisions, compensation reviews, etc. As an HR professional at MEC the focus is about being in the store and being present with our staff members. I love that MEC supports me in supporting the staff. The executive team is very approachable and are always willing to listen. They really care about the organization and the staff members. We also have an amazing HR team—we are all very collaborative and passionate. There are also so many great perks—RRSP matching, great benefits, fair compensation, pro deals, and care days!

Cons

MEC is in growth and stabilization phase, and with this comes with a lot of change. Understandably, change can be really hard for people. However, the changes we are implementing are for the long-term success of the business, our staff and our members.
