Meat Cutter (noun/ butcher, captain hind-grinder)


Meridian knows meat like Bo knows baseball. It’s our pride and passion, and it’s our butchers who deliver all that passion to the customer through exceptional service, and a selection of meats, seafood and delicacies they won’t find anywhere else.  We are seeking a full time qualified meat cutter to join our team at all of our stores.


What you’ll be doing:

As a Meridian meat cutter, you’ll be slicing, dicing and merchandizing meats of all varieties; filling maintaining our full service showcase display, processing custom orders, and preparing back stock for busy times.  More importantly, you will be serving our customers.  Our goal is to give our customers the best possible experience, and our butchers play a critical role in achieving this. As one of our meat experts, you’ll be offering customers special cuts and services, giving suggestions and recommendations, and sharing your knowledge about the meats we sell.  You’ll of course be expected to perform your meat cutting duties with a level of speed and accuracy, with careful attention to the final result; one that customer will find pleasing.


We recognize that not all meat cutters interested in this position will have the same experience, and we are interested in hiring meat cutters of varying levels of qualification.  As a registered apprentice sponsor, we provide full apprenticeship training, paid, on the job.



Grade ‘A’ Requirements:

  • Previous meat cutting experience.
  • You’re a genuinely happy and outgoing people person, and you get a buzz of making someone’s day.
  • You’re efficient, organized, and you like to GSD (Get Stuff Done).
  • You roll up your sleeves and roll with the punches when the pressure’s on.
  • You want to learn and welcome new stretching challenges and opportunities


‘AAA’ Bonus points for:

  • Meat Cutting Journeyman Ticket.
  • Management experience.
  • Experience training apprentices.




Why work at Meridian?

You’ll be joining a team of friends (a family, a squad) who know the best way to get work done is to have fun doing it.  Collaboration, personality, hard work, and baked goods are all wholeheartedly encouraged.  We offer competitive salary, in-store discount, medical and dental coverage, and a fun and social work culture.




We’re a locally owned & operated family business with 6 locations in the lower mainland. Fresh describes everything we do, from free range and grass-fed meats raised without added growth hormones, to Ocean Wise sustainable seafood, locally harvested produce and artisan breads baked daily. Every day, our goal is to delight people’s senses with an abundant selection of the freshest food available.
