Job Description

Old Courthouse Nursery is a wholesale propagation and container nursery located in Warsaw, NC (halfway between Raleigh and Wilmington) that produces top quality container grown plants in sizes from propagation trays to 65 gallon. Most of our ornamental material goes to other growers to feed their production (for pot ups and field planting) with some of our larger material going direct to landscapers and re-wholesalers. We have also recently branched out into hemp propagation and starter plant sales as part of the hemp pilot program in NC. 

We are currently seeking to fill a customer relations/salesperson position to help service our customers (and find new ones) from GA to eastern TN and up the east coast to Long Island, NY. The position would deal with various aspects of customer service, inside/outside sales and marketing. 
Duties include: Contacting existing and potential customers to secure orders, taking and sending pictures for customers and website updates, helping with all aspects of marketing and website maintenance and providing input on production planning from a sales perspective. 

Nursery sales and/or growing experience is preferred but the position can be molded to fit the individual and we would be willing to train the right person. We are willing to teach someone with sales skills about production or someone with production skills how to sell plants so we are open to a wide range of applicant skill levels (recent college graduates included).

In order to be successful in this position, potential applicants must have good communication skills, be able to organize and run themselves and want to continually learn more about plant production and sales (no matter how much experience they already have). 

Pay is based on experience level of applicant and will be assessed on a case by case basis. Relocation allowance, company truck, gas/credit card for all work related costs, smart phone, laptop/tablet, competitive benefits package (health/dental insurance and a matching IRA retirement plan) and profit sharing bonus structure will all be included.   

This is an excellent opportunity with a great company to work for. You will be working with a group of dedicated and hardworking nurserymen at an operation they have a lot of pride in so if you aren’t ready to dive in and work hard then don’t waste our time or yours by applying.   
Job Requirements
Basic computer skills,good interpersonal skills and a good attitude are all necessary. The desire and ability to learn and adapt will be crucial for an employee to be successful in this position. The majority of our customers are other growers so a background in plant production and/or the ability and desire to learn more about production will be necessary to be able to deal with them effectively.

Periodic travel thorough out the year to make sales calls in different regions and to attend tradeshows (we do about 5 tradehows per year) is required. The nursery covers all costs associated with traveling for sales trips etc.
