What is it that you like about your job? I have had the opportunity to learn all aspects of the Marine business, from entry level to my current management position.

Providing the best customer service possibly to them is very satisfying.

Are there tasks or responsibilities that you dislike? Collecting money is not a favorite task, but it is a necessary one. The term "no cash, no splash" says it all and sometimes customers need to be gently reminded of that.

What are your overall feelings? For example, do you find it rewarding, challenging, steady, interesting etc. Please describe.: Boating is a culture, they are a different breed of person.

Describe your job in a few sentences: What is it that you like about your job?: Starting on the gas dock is a summer student in high school in 2001, I was offered a Marine technician apprenticeship in 2004 which I gladly accepted. Licensed in 2007 I work as a Marine technician for six years and slowly took the role of assistant service manager, taking the service manager position full-time in 2015. Running the service department includes customer relations and contact, inputting work orders, inventory control, parts orders, invoicing, and preparing estimates are among many other daily tasks. What I like most about this job is the satisfaction you get when a customer will leaves with their boat knowing that they and their boat have been looked after in a professional manner whether it was a head [toilet] repair or an engine installation.

Are there tasks or responsibilities that you dislike?: Due to the short boating season in Ontario one of my worst fears is having to, customer and report to them that their boat or engine will not be ready for the weekend or their vacation. Whether it's due to parts backordered or unforeseen additional repairs, it's never nice to make that call although most customers are very understanding.

What are your overall feelings? The job can be very rewarding when you and your team resolve an issue that a customer may have been having for some time. The marine industry can also be very challenging as you need to be a mechanic, plumber, electrician, woodworker and occasionally get into cosmetic and structural repairs. Each day is a new adventure.

What quality of life would you say your career in the marine industry has provided you?: The marine industry has offered me full-time, year-round employment in the town that I grew up in. I consider myself very fortunate to be able to work and raise my family in my hometown.

Whether it is being a technician, becoming a marine surveyor, doing fiberglass repair, becoming a Marine engineer, working for the Coast Guard or Armed Forces. The possibilities are endless in the marine industry.

POSITION/JOB TITLE: Location Manager

 

Your previous position or title if applicable: General Manager, Service Manager

The area you live in: Kingston, Ontario

The number of years you've been in this position: five

The number of years you've been in the marine industry: 30

Tell us about your education:

Did you complete high school? yes

Did you complete any post secondary? yes – University of Western Ontario

Marine industry courses or training? Marine Technology and Recreation – Georgian College

On-the-job training? co-op while at Georgian College

 

What is it that you like about your job? I manage the Kingston location in the Pride Marine Group. Every day is different – I am primarily in charge of the sales department, but like many other dealerships, I do so many other things each day. If a customer needs parts, a work order written up, the front step needs sweeping, or I sell a boat – these are all part of the job description of a local Location Manager. Of course, you have a primary job but I'm the kind of person who will step in and help get something done while keeping focus on what my daily tasks are to complete.

Are there tasks or responsibilities that you dislike? There are always tasks from time to time that we would rather not do compared to others. Dealing with displeased customers is always a challenge but you grow out of it and learn about yourself and how others react when situations change. I used to dislike cleaning bathrooms when I started out as an 18-year-old at Ed Huck Marine in Rockport – now as Location Manager, I just clean it quickly because it's part of the “nonverbal message” we send as a business.

What are your overall feelings? For example, do you find it rewarding, challenging, steady, interesting etc. Please describe.: I couldn't imagine another career for me. When I was in third year of Western and working at the marina in summer, I picked up a copy of a boating magazine and saw the ad for Georgian College’s MTR course. Finished my degree then went to Orillia and have never looked back. I learned an important lesson when I was 20 – do what you love, and love what you do. In many respects I haven't worked a day yet because every morning you wake up wanting to bring the passion you have for boating to others. Every day is different as a manager – the employees and customers make the difference.

What quality of life would you say your career in the marine industry has provided you? I am able to work in the city where I live, raised two great boys with my wife, and owning a cottage east of Kingston means that I am what I sell, I am what I service, and I can think like my customer so much more effectively. I can chase my kids around rinks in southern Ontario during the fall/winter and enjoy the Thousand Islands with my family in summer. People often ask me, "Doug, after all you do during the day, isn't getting into a boat the LAST thing you want to do?!" To which I reply, "Actually, it's the first thing I want to do."

What else would you tell a young person about your life in the marine industry? Coming from a marine family means some of this passion was already in my blood. However, I did have to carve a lot of my path myself. I focused on both finding a career that I enjoyed, but also one that allowed me to support my family. As a result, it became more of our "calling" than anything. Keep learning, stay true to what really makes you get out of bed with a smile each morning, maintain the desire to help others, stay humble, and develop the passion that, when times get tough or your career becomes uncertain, you keep at it. Who wouldn't want to work with boats as a job – like, really. Who?

What is it that you like about your job? I love everything about my job because it is never the same day. Nothing in the marine industry is routine or regular. Our season is very short but working with a great staff and my husband, it is very fulfilling. I love our clients who most are more like friends and very loyal. I work in every department at the dealership but mainly in service organizing the day and doing up the repair orders and time tickets and then I work with our salesman as a sales manager. I still take care of part of the bookkeeping to keep on top of things. Nothing is regular.

Are there tasks or responsibilities that you dislike? I dislike fall when things start to slow down. We have been running seven days a week for 6+ months and it's hard to slow down. It can wear on your mind because it's a very long off-season.

 

What are your overall feelings? For example, do you find it rewarding, challenging, steady, interesting etc. Please describe.: The marine industry is rewarding when a job is complete and you feel good about a sale. It is challenging every day because it is different with no routine or boring days. It is definitely not steady being so seasonal which also makes it more challenging. It's always interesting and it provides us a great living.

What quality of life would you say your career in the marine industry has provided you? We have a wonderful quality of life and work on a beautiful lake. We have a beautiful home on the lake as well and it provides our getaway. I can't imagine another business that allows us the quality of life we've been able to provide for our kids and grandkids and our marina dogs, Merc and Hitch.

What else would you tell a young person about your life in the marine industry? You work hard for nine months and relax for three but it's very fulfilling and you get to work outside during the best months of the year. It can provide a good living, education and on-the-job skills training in so many facets of the work environment. There is never a dull moment.
