Want to Join Team Signal Mountain?
We look for people with positive attitudes, an eagerness to learn, and the ability to hustle in a fast paced work environment!
We love what we do and we look for people who are as excited about our mission as we are. Prior garden center or farm experience isn't required. What we DO require is a strong work ethic, positive attitude, and the ability to hustle. Not to scare you, but we want to be completely transparent with our expectations - most jobs at Signal Mountain Nursery are not strictly desk jobs. We all hustle hard - often on our feet - for a significant portion of each day, and we have a lot of fun while we do it. We all help out in other areas as needed, so the ability to be flexible is extremely important.
*Unlike many companies, advanced education is not a requirement at Signal Mountain Nursery. We believe that the best individuals come with varied backgrounds and experiences, and we value work ethic, problem-solving skills, intellectual curiosity and a positive attitude over a specific degree.
We are always looking for people we think would be a good fit for our team, so even if we're not actively hiring for a position you think you'd be great at, please don't hesitate to send in your resume. Or, even better, stop by and apply in person!
