Retail personnel have a very dynamic role, which includes but is not limited to the following daily activities:
-point of sale operation accepting debit, credit, and cash
-working the soft serve ice cream machine
-serving baked goods from the bakery counter
-assisting in the produce department when busy
-stocking freezers, coolers, and confection
-helping customers with their orders to their cars
We put a big emphasis on team work, but also expect you to take an initiative to keep busy and up to date on what’s new and happening at the farm. This position requires you to be confident interacting with our customers and to remain calm when things get really busy. This is not a stand at the till position, so be prepared to do lots of walking and a decent amount of lifting and bending when stocking the shelves.
Weekends are very busy, but festive and fun at Davison Orchards. Please expect to be scheduled for at least some weekends. Our season runs from May 1 to October 31, and being able to commit until the end of our season is an asset.
