We’re looking for a friendly, strong, motivated person to join our nursery team, which is responsible for the physical work of keeping the store attractive, clean and organized. Nursery Associates spend their days in our lovely garden store doing heavy work with plants and pots. They interact with customers every day, too, so you should love working with people as much as you love working with plants.
You’ll be expected to lift, carry, and move heavy items on a daily basis, sometimes all day long, so you’ll need to be strong and fit. You must be able to lift 75 pounds regularly. You’ll load sold merchandise into vehicles, clean the nursery, move large plants and pottery, haul plants around in our yard, and create displays with direction from more experienced staff members.
Customer service experience in any industry would be a major plus. You’ll be responsible for greeting customers and connecting them to a more experienced salesperson 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, a passion for horticulture, and a strong interest in garden design, we’d love to hear from you. Experience in a warehouse or construction would also be a good fit. We’re looking for someone who wants to learn! Nursery Associates are in a great position to gain knowledge and expertise from the skilled horticulturalists and garden designers who work and shop here.
At Flora Grubb Gardens, we’re always finding new ways to impart our love for gardens to our customers; practice our art in the medium of plants; and make our store an inspiring place to shop, learn, and enjoy nature. With so many talented designers and gardeners among our staff and customers, our nursery has become a hub of creativity in the garden world. So many former employees have gone on to further exciting success, starting their own landscape companies and plant shops, publishing gorgeous books, and leaving their unique imprint on the Bay Area landscape.
Spend your days surrounded by plants, collaborating with other creative, plant-obsessed people. Develop your skills, expertise, and vision in a beautiful garden environment.
