This is always an exciting time of the year for us – the Hiring Draft is almost here.
Each year, we hold a draft for applicants who want to work at Warner’s, and I always look forward to that Saturday when new, fresh faces come to the nursery to show us what they’ve got.
The Warner hiring process is not like your regular job interview. For two hours, we have our applicants participate in all the activities they’d be expected to do if they got the job. Once the draft is over, we call back the most promising candidates for interviews.
The draft is pretty reflective of our work philosophy here. We believe in hands-on experience, working hard, and having fun – and for us, two hours of playing outside in the dirt and working with plants is the best time you can have!
So what are we looking for?
People who are enthusiastic about gardening and about our customers. For almost half a century (wow!) we’ve been honored to be our community’s go-to garden center and a huge part of that is our friendly customer service.
Applicants also need to be comfortable working on their feet outside in all types of weather. It can also get warm in our nursery and hothouses. You’ll need to be able to regularly lift 30 to 50 pounds – we’ve got a lot of bags of soil, birdseed, mulch and more that need to be moved around!
What will you get in return? A terrific job experience in a beautiful environment with an amazing team.
Interested? Or know someone who might be? Then plan to join us on Saturday, March 9 at 10 am.
