Join Red Wagon’s RETAIL TEAM this spring in Hinesburg, VT.
Our retail crew is the face of the operation and we count on our staff to be knowledgeable, courteous, and confident. Since 2020 we now have multiple ways of shopping at Red Wagon, in person and online. When not helping customers and fulfilling online orders, 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, and a beautiful work environment.
