Winter Shipping Crew Member

Name of business / employer
Fourth Corner Nurseries

Job description / duties
In operation for 36 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 farm grading and shipping barn with attached cooler and freezer. Daily tasks include stocking and organizing large bags of bare root plants, pulling orders ahead of scheduled shipping days, packing UPS boxes and stacking pallets for freight delivery, maintaining good communication with other staff, and keeping a clean and organized work space.
While the majority of time will be spent in the barn, there are associated outdoor tasks that often take place in inclement weather. This is a very physical position, requiring repeated lifting of up to 70 lbs. and potential equipment operation. Cheerful willingness is essential!

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.
