Knowledge of plants and landscaping techniques desired. The best candidate will be an energetic, good-natured person, and have an excellent driving and safety record.

You’ll move everything from 1 gallon cans to 24” box trees, water plants, load sold merchandise into vehicles, weed and clean the Garden Center grounds, move large plants and pottery, haul plants around Garden Center, and create displays with direction from more experienced staff members. You’ll load and drive a box truck and deliver plants and pottery. You will need a valid Driver’s License and a clean driving record.
Customer service experience would be a huge plus. You’ll be responsible for greeting customers and connecting them to a more experienced employee when necessary. You'll get a lot of questions about plants, so you’ll need to be able to admit quickly when you don't have the answer and find someone on staff who does!
If you have some plant and garden experience and a passion for horticulture we’d love to hear from you. We’re looking for someone who wants to learn!
You’ll have a regular schedule. Shifts are between 8:30am-5:30pm seven days a week.
