Now taking applications for the following positions
Spring Packaging & Shipping Crew (yearly positions with work available between mid-March and mid-May)
Each year, Chief River Nursery hires on 15-20 people to help us pick, pack and ship orders of seedlings to our customers. Some previous employees come back to help again and the rest we hire on.
This year, our shipping season will kick off in late March with the unloading of seedlings from incoming refrigerated semis. After the nursery stock is unloaded, it is organized by species into our cold storage warehouses. Over the course of 5 to 8 weeks, we pick, pack and ship a high volume of seedlings to our customers. These customers range from homeowners needing a handful of trees, to U.S. Forest Service ranger districts purchasing 20,000+ seedlings. Most of our shipments go out by FedEx, but some orders are shipped by freight as well as our own courier service.
The work atmosphere at our nursery is easy going, friendly and flexible. We have weekday and Saturday shifts available, and will open up evening shifts if needed. Additional information on the positions and shifts available can be found throughout the application. If you are interested in applying for this position, please complete an application and return it to us by email at [email protected], by fax to 866-226-5204 or by mail to Chief River Nursery, 976 Ulao Road, Grafton, WI 53024.
