Hiring: Greenhouse Manager Assistant – Harvest Farm of Whately

Job Description – Greenhouse Manager Assistant

We are looking for someone immediately for the spring 2021 season to assist with customers, pull orders and work with our team to ensure that pickups and deliveries run smoothly.

Customer service:       Sell supplies, plants

Telephone, fax, copy

Write up invoices

Plant care: Watering experience preferable but not required. Being able to identify vegetables, flowers, and herbs to pull orders is a big plus. 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 how busy it gets. Our greenhouse season runs until June 30th, and we do have fieldwork that may be a possibility as well to continue into the fall but will require a separate interview with the field boss. The pay rate starts at $13.50, but will definitely pay more for an experienced individual.
