Nursery Grower and Landscaper! (Hadley)

compensation: Commensurate with experience
employment type: full-time
job title: Nursery Grower and Landscaper
Amherst Nurseries, a wholesale nursery and landscaping business, is hiring both entry-level and experienced employees. We are flexible with hours - PT or FT - whichever works best for your schedule. Our business grows trees and shrubs for sale around New England, while also providing landscaping services to the Amherst/Northampton area.

The work environment is busy and constantly evolving, both in the nursery and on landscaping job sites. If you enjoy a fast pace every day, this is a good opportunity for you!

Experience is not required, but a positive attitude and willingness to work as a team with your co-workers is essential. We are willing to train entry-level employees to do the work to meet our standards.

Each day is different in this job - between landscape projects (mowing, mulching, planting, etc) and nursery related work (planting, pruning, staking, harvesting, etc). Some of the expectations of the job are:
1. Work Safely
2. Work in all weather conditions as necessary
3. Ability to be in good physical condition and lift over 60 lbs repeatedly throughout the day
4. Communicate effectively and professionally with customers and co-workers, including timely completion of paperwork
5. Ability to learn how to operate our machinery
6. Ability to obtain a DOT Medical card and OSHA 10 certificate within 10 days of hire
7. Ability to pass a background and drug screening test
8. Availability in the winter for snow removal work
9. Willingness to be flexible when poor weather affects the work schedule

We are looking for people who want to be the best in the industry and have a professional attitude, work well with customers/co-workers and know how to attend to the details in an efficient manner. You must have a valid drivers license with a good driving history, and be available for winter snow removal work. This is a substance and smoke free workplace.

We offer steady hours and overtime, paid holidays, personal/sick days, health insurance, and a performance bonus with paid time off at the end of the season.

Applicants should be highly safety conscious and able to handle strenuous work in all weather conditions. Amherst Nurseries is a small business, and all employees must be willing to help in all areas of the business as needed in order to complete the task at hand.

Please respond by email with a resume and references. No phone calls or visits please.

Thank you for your interest, we look forward to hearing from you!

Job Type: Full-time seasonal
