Our pumpkin patch is open 10-6 daily from October 1-31. We are looking for people to work part-time or full-time in this position.
You must be responsible, hard-working, punctual, and able to interact with customers in a friendly manner. You must also be able to lift at least 50 lbs. multiple times every day.
Your main tasks will be: Using Square Register to check out customers; re-stocking pumpkins and produce; interacting with customers to answer questions and show them around the pumpkin patch; opening and closing the pumpkin patch at the beginning and end of the day. Weekdays can sometimes be slow, so you will be asked to perform other tasks on the farm–mostly helping out in our wash area. If you have experience with young children, you may be asked to lead pumpkin patch tours.
Our pumpkin patch is entirely outdoors, so you must be able to work in all weather conditions. The weather is extreme, with 100 degrees in the summer and freezing near the end of the season. Large thunderstorms, rain, or high winds are not uncommon. However, we usually close the pumpkin patch if it is raining for an entire day.
You must have your own reliable transportation. We are a non-smoking and drug-free workplace.
