 Right now 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 helpful. 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.

Right now we’re looking for an experienced customer service pro to work at our cash register. You’ll spend your day in a beautiful, bright, open-air garden setting. You’ll ring people up, answer tons of questions, help connect our customers to the appropriate salespeople and/or services, answer the phone, keep our register station clean and well-organized, and spread good feelings to everyone you interact with.

The cashier at Flora Grubb Gardens is at the center of our customer experience. Our wonderful customers are the most important part of our business, and it will be your job to ensure that all your interactions with customers express how important they are to us.

We’ll count on you to be the champion of the processes we’ve developed, and to help us constantly improve them.

You’ll need to know a lot about plants and gardens. At the register, you’ll get a lot of practical questions about plant care, so you’ll need to be able to answer them authoritatively, and also admit quickly when you don’t have the answer and find someone else on staff who does. You won’t need to start out with advanced plant identification skills, but experience as a professional gardener or landscaper would be great.

Surrounded by plants and plant experts in our nursery, you’ll learn something new every day. Through formal training, conversation with knowledgeable coworkers, and lots of hands-on experience, our Sales Associates consistently improve their skills in plant ID and plant care.

As Sales Associates acquire garden design skills and plant expertise, they are promoted to Sales Specialists and beyond. Many of our long-term staff working at every level of our business started here as Sales Associates. We are committed to the personal and professional growth of our staff members.

The job involves setup, selling, and takedown at one or more bay area farmers markets.

You'll also need to be comfortable working with and discussing the ins and outs of what fine cider can be (think fine wine or craft beer) - we can help with this.

Our most current opportunity is located in San Rafael at the lovely Sunday civic center farmer's market. Pay is $15/hr plus a variable commission depending on gross sales - typically this will work out to anywhere from $20-$30+/hr all in at a successful market.
