We’re Hiring

The Nautical Mind Bookstore is looking for a new crew member to work in the bookstore a few days a week, including Saturdays, starting in June 2021.

The job involves helping customers in the store, on the phone, and online find the right books, charts, and cruising guides for their needs. With much of the business now online, packaging and shipping locally and internationally is a big part of the job. We ship with Canada Post, Canpar and UPS.

Detailed knowledge of boats, books, charts and navigation would be a great boon. We sell everything from racing, cruising guides and navigation to professional texts used by students, schools, shipping companies and the Coast Guard.

Skills needed for the job include retail experience, an ability to be detail oriented, and a facility and comfort with computers including experience with database work, and Microsoft Word and Excel

The Nautical Mind is a positive and inclusive workspace where the traits, skills, and contributions of all are acknowledged and respected.  It’s a unique local niche bookstore focussed on a deeply fascinating subject matter.

  1. Hello Nautical Mind;

    Well you solved one of life’s little mysteries. I now know who hires Santa Clause in his off season. Gees, on Monday I ordered two books via your web site and three days later a sleigh landed in my front yard and dropped off the books. I can’t say enough about the service.

    Been a loyal customer for 15 years or so, and will continue to be.

    Thanks, Captain Robert Wolfe, Edmonton

  2. I didn’t see a customer feedback link on your site, so this is where I left my comment. Cheers, Robert…
