Job Opportunity: Arboretum Groundskeeper, Facilities

March 05, 2018

The work schedule of our temporary positions can be quite flexible, however applicants need to be aware that there are no guaranteed hours of work. This season we are interested in hiring for up to 3 positions. One position could start full-time as soon as weather permits, the other would be part-time during the school year, then full-time from mid May until school starts again in the fall.  There is usually some work available until late November.

The normally scheduled workweek will be Monday through Friday (no weekend work), with the full-time positions working 8 hours per day. For both the full-time and part-time workers, there is some flexibility with the actual hours of work, but generally the hours will occur between 7:30 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. With advance notice, we can sometimes offer the flexibility of working around your own scheduling needs such as for school schedules or holiday plans.

As noted above, applicants responding to this recruitment notice will be considered for positions which meet our immediate workload needs, but may also be considered for positions up to 3 months after the close of this announcement.


Employees who are hired to work at least 20 hours per week and for 5 months or longer may be eligible for limited benefits including membership in the PERSI retirement system and eligibility for vacation leave, sick leave and holiday pay.
