Join the team at Barton Springs Nursery! We are looking to expand our staff and have the following positions open. These positions involve working within different areas of the nursery as priorities shift continuously throughout the day. There are three main areas of focus: loading, traffic management, and unloading/unpacking. All positions will require a strong work ethic and attention to detail. We are seeking self-starters who are responsible and highly motivated. These are great entry-level positions for anyone looking to learn more about anything nursery-related.
Seeking a motivated and hard-working candidate for loader at Barton Springs Nursery. A great fit for folks who like the outdoors, physical work, and are interested in learning more about gardening. Must be able to repeatedly lift 40 lbs, be self-starting and self-motivated, and have a positive demeanor, both with our team and our customers. Driving and/or forklift-operating experience a plus
Parking and Traffic Duties
We have a long narrow parking lot which at times can get very busy. When an order is maintained everything operates smoothly. Sometimes it becomes somewhat like a game of Tetris but with some patience, everyone will get where they are headed. Not only do our customers park in this lot but it is where our entrance and exit are located meaning you will continuously be interacting with our customers. Throughout the day we will also receive deliveries in this lot which always require extra care and attention.
Receiving and Unpacking
We not only sell a wide variety of garden supplies, pottery, shop items, art, furniture, plants, soils, mulches, compost, etc. but we grow a lot of the plants that we sell. To keep stock of these items we are constantly receiving large deliveries. This happens in various ways but it all involves lifting and moving objects. Sometimes 100's at a time. Some items can be large, sharp, dirty, and heavy.
At times we need to have staff take outbound deliveries. These are orders that we are delivering to people's homes. We have a pickup truck and a box truck with a lift gate. You must have a clean driving record and be comfortable driving large loads. Please let us know if you have any driving or delivery experience.
