Sales Runner 

Garden Store Worker

24 to 40 hours a week.

Ideal candidates will work Wednesday to Sunday 10:30am to 6:30pm

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?

Right now we’re looking for a Sales Runner to support our sales team in providing outstanding customer service. This position will require strong organizational skills, attention to detail, and a cheerful state of mind. As a Sales Runner, you’ll spend your day in a beautiful, bright, open-air garden setting. You’ll oversee the store entrance, warmly welcoming our customers and keeping them informed about safe shopping practices. You’ll support the sales team by ringing up sales, securing sold materials, marking them as needed and organizing them into holding areas.

In addition, the Sales Runner will assist with customer pickups and deliveries, package materials for safe travel and help to load material into vehicles. 

The position will require routine heavy lifting up to 75 lbs.

The Sales Runner will also be responsible for cleaning and organizing areas of the store when needed to ensure the quality of our displays, our plants and our products.

The sales team 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 don’t need to know a lot about plants when you start this job, but you will certainly learn about them here! Surrounded by plants and plant experts in our nursery, you’ll learn something new every day. Through training, conversation with knowledgeable coworkers, and lots of hands-on experience, you will consistently improve your skills in plant ID and plant care. We are committed to the personal and professional growth of our staff members.

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

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.
