Winter Shipping Crew Member
Name of business / employer

Job description / duties
In operation for 37 years, Fourth Corner Nurseries is the preeminent producer of native plants for the restoration and wholesale nursery markets for the pacific northwest and beyond. We specialize in bare root native plant species including trees and shrubs, perennials, bulbs, graminoids, and aquatics. Winter shipping season is our busiest time, as this is when our trees and shrubs are dormant and can be dug, graded, and shipped to customers. We are looking for seasonal help in our Shipping Department!

The Shipping Crew is responsible for preparing and packing orders for shipment and managing graded plant inventory. Working location will be the shipping barn and inside of the attached cooler and freezer. Daily tasks include stocking and organizing large bags of bare root plants, pulling orders ahead of scheduled shipping days, packing boxes and stacking pallets for freight delivery, maintaining good communication with other staff, and keeping a clean and organized workspace.

Candidate must be capable of working on their feet all day, and of lifting of 50-70 lbs. with additional walking, carrying, and bending.

Familiarity with native plant species and botanical nomenclature is helpful but not required. Readiness to learn on the job is essential regardless of background.

An ideal candidate can work well independently and with a team, take directions easily and respond willingly to inevitable changes in priorities and tasks. While we strive to make the winter shipping world as organized as possible, last minute changes due to weather, customer needs, or other factors will always occur. This position requires adaptability in a fast-paced, production-focused environment.
