Retail Store Associate

We make but one thing and we do that well, “CANDY”

For the past 49 years, Rhéo Thompson Candies Ltd. has been cultivating a tradition of creating delicious candy AND providing exceptional customer service. We are seeking an energetic and enthusiastic Retail Store Associate to join our growing team and continue the tradition.

Rhéo Thompson Candies offers a challenging, fast-paced and rewarding position to someone that is looking for permanent, full-time (32-40 hours per week) and part-time employment (24 hours per week) year-round. We provide an every other weekend shift rotation to ensure our staff can enjoy their time off and we carry extended hours in the holiday season.

Our retail environment is unique in that we do something different everyday. We get to work with public, but we also work behind the scenes to create custom orders, assist with candy making, and fastidiously maintain our merchandise displays along with the store itself.

If you are dedicated to providing a great customer experience, appreciate a tidy and organized work space, love to be busy, enjoy working with people in a team environment, and have a strong eye for detail, we would like to talk with you.

  • Skilled at handling a retail POS system (computer skills a must).
  • A builder of lasting client relationships.
  • Customer service driven, able to work in a fast-paced environment.
  • Flexible, able to work weekends.
  • Able to work and support like-minded colleagues.
  • An individual who works better thinking on their feet than sitting behind a desk.

  • I’m not a chocoholic - but my wife appreciates fine chocolate - and she claims that this place is the finest in the land - well worth the drive as a destination spot......

  • Years ago when I was in Teachers' College, I used to walk to Thompson Candies to get a treat to take home to my dad. A generation later, Rheo Thompson offers that same high-quality mouth-watering chocolate. Just entering the building is an aromatic treat.

  • A magical place filled with delicious chocolate. It smells incredible in here. The staff is friendly and efficient. The mint smoothies, coconut clusters, and almond crisps are the best! We had mint smoothies as our wedding favours and let’s say our guests were not disappointed.
