We’re hiring! 

We are the new (2 years old now!) Marin County location of the well known Berkeley Cactus Jungle. 

Spring is coming, the days are getting longer, and we’re looking for additional customer service specialists to help us make this year our best yet. We’re a local retail nursery featuring succulents, cactus, bamboo, drought-tolerant perennials, and so much more! 

Our focus is customer service and that means we actively engage with our customers, every day, all day. We ask lots of questions to help determine what plants will best fit their specific needs because we want our customers to be successful plant enthusiasts. We assist them in selecting plants and we give easy-to-follow plant care instructions that include how to repot, when to water and fertilize, and what plants work well together.  

Our most successful team members are friendly, outgoing, inquisitive people who enjoy sharing their passion for plants with our customers. They are plant nerds that delight in getting their hands dirty while teaching others about the plants we grow and sell. This passion and level of customer service is what our customers have come to expect from us. 

Have you worked at a nursery, taken horticulture classes, or volunteered at a Botanic Garden? If so, and if you value sharing that experience, you’ll find this position rewarding. If your education or experience is in engaging and educational customer service, you’ll also revel in this opportunity. We can teach you what you need to know about the plants!

This job can be physically demanding- we're on our feet all day and must be able to lift at least 40lbs. Weekends are required. Currently looking for part time, but we can discuss full time options. Benefits offered. Competitive wages based on experience. Must be able to occasionally work at our Berkeley location and provide your own transportation. 

If you enjoy actively engaging with the public, plants, and a fun team, please submit your resume AND cover letter. Tell us about you! Please do not drop your resume off or call the nursery.

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.

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.
