January 30, 2022
Who we are
With nine wholesale branches and three luxury showrooms located throughout southwestern Ontario, Marks Supply is a leading supplier for top-quality Plumbing , P.V.F. , Hydronics and HVAC products. Our success is directly linked to our conviction to provide exceptional customer service; to nurture a highly educated, knowledgeable team of employees; and to embrace new, innovative technology. Recently acquired by Munch’s Supply, a leading U.S.-based HVAC and Plumbing Distributor, we are uniquely positioned to grow exponentially.
What makes us different from other wholesale distributors is our people, and the deep commitment they have to sharing the very best product knowledge to guide customer decisions and demonstrate our value. Through ongoing training, a generous education policy, and our Product Pros Program, we set our teams up for success knowing they are the foundation our success relies on. Joining us now is a chance to be a critical part in the next phase of our growth and the confidence to know we will take you on that journey with us.
Who we need
We’re looking for Order Pickers to join our team on the afternoon shift in Kitchener. You will work in an RF warehouse environment, scanning, picking, packing, and labelling items, lifting up to 50lbs at a time into the truck, on your own. With an extensive onboarding program, your first day on the warehouse floor will already feel familiar; and your teammates will be there to support you.
Whether you’ve worked in a warehouse, in retail during the pandemic prepping curbside orders, or another environment, if you are detail oriented, thrive in an independent role, and looking for a chance to work at a great company with good people, this could be the entry-level or next step in your career.
What’s in it for you
Ongoing training. You will receive forklift training and have a team lead guiding you through your initial start. With access to internal training, and an education fund, you will have the opportunity to continue to grow your knowledge of the industry, health and safety, management, and people leadership.
Career development. Marks Supply is committed to supporting the growth of the people who make up their teams. It doesn’t matter where you start or where you want to go; the leadership here is ready to help lay the path that will get you there. Of the dozens of success stories we have, one of our favourites is that of a Regional Manager, who started in the warehouse. Your first step up could be in less than a year into a Receiver role.
Work-life balance. This is a Monday to Friday role, with afternoon shifts running from 2-10:30pm, giving you the flexibility to take care of other commitments before starting your day. With a competitive salary and full benefits, you will feel appreciated for the work you do.
What you bring:
The drive for perfection and speed. You enjoy being responsible for accurate picking of products - the right item, the right quality. You are detail-oriented, confident in using, or are willing to learn how to use an RF gun to ensure everything is in the correct place, and you take pride in keeping things organized and making sure the warehouse is neat and tidy. You understand, respect, and adhere to all health and safety regulations, including the safe operation of hand-held or motorized equipment.

We have fun. In fact, we have a whole team dedicated to planning it.
