Assistant General Manager - McKenzie Corner

Victoria, BC

Location: McKenzie Corner, 1286 McKenzie Ave., Victoria, BC V8P 5P2


As the Root Cellar continues to grow exponentially, we are looking to add a full-time Assistant General Manager to our McKenzie Corner team. The Assistant General Manager (AGM) is a key member of our collaborative and inclusive management team. As AGM, you’ll be an up-and-coming leader who is as enthusiastic about good food and good people as we are. Our AGM is responsible for bringing our values to life and helping build a culture of inclusion, innovation, and continuous improvement while ensuring operational efficiency. Our ideal fit is excited to be part of our growth, helping us continue to seamlessly navigate change while increasing our market share.

The AGM role is not your average desk job. This is the ideal role for a relationship builder with solid business sense. You’re eager to learn, and you thrive spending face time with our staff and our customers, and can lead by example while executing on our strategic plans. You share our eye for detail, our focus on continuous improvement, and our uncompromising commitment to quality.


Growing up in British Columbia, the family root cellar was a place in our homes where we could always find good quality, garden grown, fresh & preserved foods. Our family owned market operates with a local focus, always buying from as close to home as possible to provide the communities of Victoria with the same.

We are more than your average grocery store, and our leaders are more than your average store managers. We’re a family business, and we’re selective about who joins us. Our bottom line is that we care a lot… about the products we offer, our customers, and our Root Cellar family. We put that care into action by providing a comprehensive leadership salary and benefits package with great benefits (including vision + dental), a bonus structure, development support and opportunities, and a 20% discount in our stores.


  • 5+ years of progressive relevant experience, including supervisory or management experience.
  • ·A degree in a relevant field (Business, Ops, Economics, etc.) a plus.
  • Strong business sense + ability to create, grow, and maintain efficient systems.
  • Proficient in MS Office, with a general aptitude for software and systems.
  • Excellent collaboration, communication, and organizational skills.
  • A passion for food and a love for fast paced work environments.
