Our Sales Specialists are passionately interested in the study of horticulture, design and people. We’re looking for applicants who will collaborate with our customers to create beautiful and sustainable gardens all day, every day.
Sales Specialists spend most of their time outside in our garden-like nursery providing a warm welcome to all who enter the store. Our customers are happy to be here, and working with them is a pleasure. Our style is to be ready and available to them when needed and otherwise unobtrusive. We are passionate about plants, and it’s our mission to share our inspiration and enthusiasm with our customers. We’re experts in directing customers to the plants and other garden amenities that best match their hopes and dreams for their garden space.
In addition to designing gardens with our customers, Sales Specialists are responsible for communicating about all products and services offered by Flora Grubb Gardens. They help our customers through the whole FGG experience, from greeting to check-out, and also support customers on the phone and via email.
To be successful in this role, an applicant should be a lover of plants and gardens and an outstanding communicator who thrives in a busy retail environment and works well with others to achieve shared goals.
Candidates must have at least one year of professional experience working with plants in either a garden nursery setting or in garden design or maintenance. Some formal horticultural study is preferred. Professional experience with staff supervision will be highly valued as well.
Through formal training, camaraderie with other plant experts, and time spent surrounded by plants here at the nursery, Sales Specialists can expect to consistently improve their skills in garden design, plant identification, and plant care. We’re committed to the personal and professional growth of our staff members, and we encourage our teams to support one another by sharing their expertise.
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.
