Watters Crew on Forklift

The full-time Loading Dock/ Delivery/ Maintenance position is important and unique because every day is different! This team member is responsible for unloading delivery trucks with efficiency and speed, scheduling and facilitating customer deliveries leaving from the garden center and performing general maintenance at the nursery. The position involves working directly with the entire team in keeping our nursery functioning at a high level through management of product flow, attention to detail, and the customer experience. Constant communication and follow up is key, as this person will be expected to communicate with all levels of employees clearly and concisely and in any department. Since unloading and loading plants and gardening supplies is rather strenuous work that requires lifting heavier objects, candidates must be in good physical shape and be able to safely lift up to 75 lbs. You will also need a valid driver’s license and good record.

Don’t worry, we’ll help you get to know the plants and their needs. You are surrounded by beautiful plants and super knowledgeable horticulturists.
