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: Part time, 20-25 hours per week throughout the year and full time hours during our shipping seasons. We ship bulbs twice a year: our spring season is late March through early May and fall is late September through early November.
THE JOB — OFFICE ASSOCIATE: To be responsible for Orders Management and Customer Service. If you enjoy working in a small office (there will be just four of us), in a relaxed atmosphere with the rush of a crazy shipping season, we would love to hear from you.
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 an office in an old farm house on the property of the Washtenaw Food Hub, just north of downtown Ann Arbor.
PAY: Starting pay is $12-14/hour, with a 25% team-discount on all bulbs, Monday through Friday.
THE NEXT STEP: Complete our application. You can either submit it online or print and mail it to us at 4175 Whitmore Lake Rd., Ann Arbor, MI 48105. Feel free to include a resume.
