Reviewing applications for our 2016 seasonal staff.
Please note nearly all positions are seasonal, and must include weekends.
Spring at Portland Nursery is fast-paced and intensely busy. We are looking for people who can multitask like crazy and who are undaunted, if not downright inspired, by an atmosphere of high energy and demands in their workplace. We are looking for individuals who are willing and able to work as part of a team; we need a staff who can work together and stay calm, cheerful and enthusiastic through it all.
Applicants having plant knowledge is definitely a plus, but successful customer service and cashiering experience are of primary importance.
We have openings in one or more of the following Seasonal Positions:
- Cashier/Customer Service
- Production (off-loading, potting and stocking plants)
- Loading Zone/Carry Out
Duties can include:
- Answering multi-line phone and directing calls
- Customer assistance in locating/selecting plant material, supplies, problem-solving
