WHO WE ARE: Old House Gardens is the world’s only mail-order source devoted to antique flower bulbs. Since 1993 we’ve been tracking down rare bulbs around the world, researching their histories, growing some ourselves and recruiting small farmers to grow the others, and sharing them with gardeners through our catalog and website. Learn more.
WHEN WE NEED HELP: We’re hiring now for our spring shipping season which runs from mid-September to early November.
THE JOB — OFFICE ASSISTANT: Duties will include basic office tasks: answering phones, taking orders, copying, filing, and mailing catalogs. Familiarity with flowers or gardening is helpful but not necessary.
Shipping season is fast-paced! We are looking for someone adaptable, upbeat, and who works well in close quarters.
The ideal candidate will be dependable, have excellent phone etiquette and a good eye for detail.
YOUR CO-WORKERS: Our crew is a fun, hard-working, friendly group. Most are gardeners, and all of them would tell you this is a fun place to work.
OUR LOCATION: We work out of the garage area of an old farm house on the property of the Washtenaw Food Hub, just north of downtown Ann Arbor.
PAY & HOURS: Starting pay is $9.25/hour, with a 25% team-discount on all bulbs, Monday through Friday.
