    Item Description:

    Tasting Room/Manufacturing Help

    Salt Spring Wild Cider is looking for help for the upcoming busy season. Please read the following information carefully:

    This job is one job split into two components. The successful candidate will work a few days in the tasting room and a few days doing manufacturing work. Our staff seem to like this as it splits up “the talking” component of the job and the “labour” work that we have here at SSW. The tasting room job is more bartender based– mainly pouring flights and talking folks through the flights, taking food orders, selling bottles/cases, etc. You’ll be speaking to anywhere between 2 and 20 people at a time, chatting about cider and moving people through the process. The manufacturing side of things is primarily bottling. You’ll be using our bottling system, pasteurizing cider, labelling and then boxing the cider. This is a pretty relaxed atmosphere, everyone listens to music and you work with a buddy in the “back” so it’s a nice break from chatting about cider and you’ll learn different stuff too. There are other jobs around the cidery you’ll be asked to do as well, but these are the main tasks.

    Tasting Room skills/assets required

    • Serving it Right
    • Ability to speak to large crowds and “herd” customers
    • Interest/passion for cider
    • Ability to lift 40lb boxes
    • Natural at sales and public speaking
    • Great with people
    • Availability on weekends and holidays
    • Able to handle a fast-paced environment with grace and calm
    • Ability to have fun with people and enjoy a busy day
    • Clean and organized
    • Great at multi-tasking
    • Serving or Bartending experience

    Manufacturing skills/assets required

    • Ability to lift 40lb repeatedly throughout the day
    • Willing to work with cleaning agents
    • Willing to work around pressure tanks, Co2, Air etc.
    • Ability to organize and monitor batches according to our systems
    • Self-motivated
    • A Driver’s licence would be helpful
    • Interest in cider
    • Physically fit

    You’ll need to have a stable home here on SSI and we’d prefer if you’d commit until at least the end of September. The pay is pretty good and, much higher than average for the industry and the tips are great in the summer and moderate throughout the winter months. It’s also during the day, so if you’ve been working in the service industry, this is a nice change of pace from night-based service work. If you’re interested in an interview, please send a cover letter and resume to Gerda and Mike at wild@saltpspringwildcider.com and use “Tasting Room and Manufacturing Help” in the subject line. Cheers!
