Sales Associate

Windsor Plywood

Compensation: $18.00 – $20.00 – based on experience


We specialize in hard-to-source interior and exterior home finishing products including flooring, doors, mouldings and especially wood products. Our goal is simple – focus on our customer’s needs and provide outstanding customer service. We’re more than a local building supply company, and our business model is also very different. Most of our locations are family affairs – independently locally owned and operated, not top-down like most franchise groups. We carry high quality, responsibly sourced products and are committed to providing outstanding value and personalized, one-on-one service to all of our customers. We are proud to have been in business 50 years with stores across Canada and in the
Pacific Northwest region of the United States.


The Sales position is critical to the successful operation of a Windsor Plywood Store. The primary focus is customer service. Our Sales staff work with our customers through the entire sales cycle – from initial greeting of customer by name to the final handshake after loading vehicle. The products require a solution & suggestion-based approach to compliment our customers’ projects. This ensures a dynamic & exciting sales experience for everyone involved – far different from our competitors. Experience is not required; we are willing to train the right applicant.
