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!
