About us: We are Barton Springs Nursery, a very special place in Austin. Barton Springs Nursery has been dedicated to serving the needs of gardeners in the Central Texas region by offering one of the best selections of native and well-adapted plants for this area. We strive to be more than a commercial endeavor, but rather a place of information, guidance, enjoyment, and progressive horticulture for the community. At Barton Springs Nursery we are a team of plant and nature lovers. We specialize in Native and environmentally conscious plants and products. We offer competitive pay, discounts on plants and merchandise, and help foster career growth.
Join the team at Barton Springs Nursery! We are looking to expand our production team and are looking for an all-star production assistant. You will be joining an amazing team of friendly, fun, and knowledgeable plant people. We are fortunate here at Barton Springs Nursery because we grow a lot of the plants that we are selling. This allows us to have rare plants available only found in stock here.
We do work outside under the sun through the long summer months, and we endure cold, harsh winters. This is an outside position and you must be able to work through whatever the Texas seasons throw at us. We also work in the dirt and mud so please only apply if these conditions sound unenjoyable to you. We are active and constantly on our feet or sitting on the ground with the plants. It is a demanding job but it is fulfilling in many ways.
The production assistant works in the production area tending to and moving plants up to the retail floor. They are also responsible for maintaining the area where we are growing and potting plants. This includes raking, weeding, trimming, and watering. Other tasks involve stickering and moving plants that are ready for retail up to their specified area.
Bilingual is preferred for this position.
