Nursery Associate

Garden Store Worker

24 to 40 hours a week

Ideal candidates will work at least one weekend day

Want to spend your days surrounded by plants, collaborating with other creative, plant-obsessed people? Want to develop your skills, expertise, and vision in a beautiful garden environment?

We’re looking for a friendly, strong, motivated person to join our nursery team, which is responsible for the physical work of watering our plants and 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, 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 in our yard, and create displays with direction from more experienced staff members. You’ll also be performing minor facilities repairs.

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! Garden and Facilities Associates are in a great position to gain knowledge and expertise from the skilled horticulturalists and garden designers who work and shop here.

 Pursuant to the San Francisco Fair Chance Ordinance, we will consider for employment qualified applicants with arrest and conviction records.
