  • Customer service:
    • Sell supplies, plants

Bug scouting experience helpful but will train if necessary. Possible duties may include spraying (a nontoxic) solution for bug control. Be able to lift 25-40 lbs and handle a fast paced environment.
  • Administrative: Tag customer orders and update information on their orders and on the spreadsheet printout. File orders. This is a detail oriented position so care for the details is a must!

40+ per week is the norm, Saturdays are usually a half day or the day off, depending on the how busy it gets. Our greenhouse season runs until June 30th, and we do have field work that may be a possibility as well to continue into the fall, but will require a separate interview with the field boss. Pay rate starts at $14.00/hour, but will pay more for an experienced individual.
