Planting Crew Technician/ Back Dock Worker

We are looking for new talent to fill a full-time seasonal Planting Crew Technician/ Back Dock Worker position. This is a great opportunity for a motivated individual that loves the outdoors to grow, learn, and develop skills in Horticulture while working in a respected, fast-paced, and FUN family-owned business.

We like working with each other, and believe we are strongest as a team.

This position requires a clean driving record and is contingent on passing a background check and drug test. Light landscaping/ planting experience is a plus, but not required. Duties include planting trees, shrubs, etc. according to provided guidelines to ensure plant survival, applying fertilizers, driving company vehicles, deliveries, providing excellent customer service at the garden center and on job sites, minor irrigation installation, performing minor repairs and routine maintenance procedures on equipment utilized, unloading and receiving of deliveries, general cleaning and maintenance at the garden center, and working closely with a great team to achieve optimal customer satisfaction. The individual in this position must be 18 years of age, able to work independently, able to operate equipment such as a shovel, jackhammer, rake, saw, pickaxe, etc., and able to physically stand, bend, squat, and lift up to 75 lbs unassisted.

Here’s what we believe, and if you like what we like, then please apply ASAP.  Follow the link below and download the application from our website, print it, and bring it to the garden center during regular business hours. We pay well, but way more important than the money, we like and support each other.  If you are a loner, don’t apply, if it’s only about the money, don’t apply, if you don’t like excellent customer service, your colleagues, or people in general then for the sake of gardening don’t apply!
