Swansons Nursery appreciates enthusiastic people with a good understanding of Northwest plants and gardening. Previous retail experience is preferred and plant knowledge is helpful. Nursery work is seasonal, with some shifts starting early morning and several shifts on weekends. We are especially interested in hearing from horticulture students looking for part time work while they’re in school. But even if you’re not a student, we want to hear from plant lovers who want to work at Swansons.
Our goal is to provide our customers with the best possible shopping experience, and we rely on our employees to help achieve this goal. If you share our passion for helping Swansons’ shoppers become successful gardeners, join our team!

Data Entry/Administrative Assistant, FT
This is a great opportunity for someone who enjoys being involved in data management processes from start to finish. We pride ourselves on our excellent customer service, for both internal and external customers, so strong communication skills, the ability to manage numerous competing priorities, and the ability to work as part of multiple teams are essential. This position is central to the workflow of the financial side of the company; candidates must be detail oriented, well-versed in data entry, and have intermediate-level competency with Microsoft Excel. Prior experience in a garden center is a definite bonus but not required.
