Open Positions for the 2020 season in our retail operation in Hinesburg, VT
Red Wagon Plants is known for high-quality organic plants and stellar customer service. Our retail crew is the face of the operation and we count on our staff to be knowledgeable, courteous, and confident. When not helping customers, people on the retail crew are moving plants all day long, restocking, and keeping the greenhouses clean and tidy. We are continuously making room in the retail greenhouses for new plants from the production greenhouses, creating displays and filling our space with color. We expect our retail crew to have a strong memory so that they can recognize our regular customers, remember plant names and also know where all the plants are located. Our retail crew is responsible for watering and maintaining plant health within the retail greenhouses. We have a fun work atmosphere with fellow plant lovers, a paid lunch break, free plants for your own garden, a living wage, and a beautiful work environment.
