We are looking for champions!


Kapow Ltd. Comics and Games is hiring seasonal/casual/part time positions!

Kapow is a 5 times in a row winner of Best of the Best Hobby Store in the Lethbridge Sun Times and is renowned for their customer service and event space. We are looking for individuals ready to join our team and promote that same level of service.

Here are ideas for champions we are looking for to join our team of super heroes.

The first will demand a high knowledge of comic books and the comic industry. You’ll to have good detail to attention, a decent memory and the ability to single out customer needs and make sure they get what they want. You’ll also have to be able to either join in long winded, meandering conversations about esoteric comic book characters with Wallie and Brendan or listen patiently as they fanboy over Tom King. You’ll need good organizational skills and time management as well. Files will need to be filled, back issues sorted and bags/boards made.

The second will ask for our champion to excel at sales and demos of board games! Can you trade sheep for wood like no other? Got your ticket to ride your way to making sure everyone has the right game? Can you Machi Koro the… uh.. ok I’ve got nothing. You’ll be asked to suggest games for our shelves and know the latest and greatest, as well as the classics and be able to demo them to customers!

Do you like grand adventure? You’ll love this one! Kapow hosts a robust RPG scene. Can you organize tables and events, keep DMs on task, make sure the RPG shelves are crisp and clean and the dice ready to roll? Can you chat with a wide variety of adventurers of all ages, gender and experience? Have you ever taken an arrow to the knee? Then maybe you’re our knight in shining armor!

Speaking of armor, like to pretend to drive tanks and giant robots? Our miniatures line is ever growing with Warhammer 40k, Age of Sigmar, X-Wing, Guild Ball and more hitting the table on a regular basis. If you don’t mind endlessly arguing about rules and pushing toy soldiers around all while convincing customers why it’s so awesome, then come on in! In addition to demo’s and events, you’ll be tasking with building kits for those very purposes.

The above positions will have general customer service, cash register work and janitorial duties attached. Experience in retail or restaurant service can’t but help!

Please bring resume WITH Cover Letter (must contain a cover letter) in to Kapow Ltd at 320 6th Street South or email to kapowltd@gmail.com We will contact you back for interviews.
