Shop Assistant

Innovative indoor agriculture company in Rocky View County (east) looking for  a Shop Assistant to start ASAP. Ideally suited for someone who loves animals, reptiles and insects in particular! 

Critters and Crawlers is a new insect rearing farm that raises live crickets, mealworms and superworms for pet food. Our customers include zoos, conservation centres, pet stores, breeders and individual pet owners. We are growing fast as the only farmers of quality live insects feeders in Alberta.

The role:

  • Performing insect maintenance (feed/water) and other insect-rearing tasks
  • General shop clean up duties throughout the week
  • Packaging insects for shipment and delivery

The environment:

  • Our shop is kept very warm and humid for successful insect rearing (over 30 degrees Celsius). The right person for this role can physically handle this heat.
  • While our insects are grown in containers, there are strays throughout the facility, so this person must not be squeamish with insects (don't worry, they don’t bite)!


  • Friendly, personable and professional demeanour and communication skills
  • Organized and detail-oriented
  • Basic computer skills
  • Must have own vehicle or transportation as there is no transit to the farm

This position is 40 hours a week, Monday to Friday. Wage is $15/hour to start.
