Bell Nursery Looks to Fill 900 Seasonal Positions
Bell Nursery, Burtonsville, Md., is now accepting applications to fill more than 900 seasonal positions – primarily garden center merchandisers to display and care for the more than 75 million plants at Bell-served Home Depot garden centers this spring.
Bell will also be hiring additional greenhouse and loading dock staff, as well drivers to fill two full time shifts at several locations.
“As a company, 70 percent of our sales are during spring season, which means we are pushing a lot of product into the stores,” said Gary Mangum, Bell Nursery CEO. “It is a physically demanding team effort, but it’s a fun and rewarding experience and many associates return year after year.”
The spring garden season runs from around March 1 through July 1, depending on the weather. Both part-time and full-time positions are available. Standout employees may be retained and converted into full time employees. In fact, over the past year, Bell has added more than 100 full time positions, a year round workforce increase of 20 percent.
Bell is accepting applications for positions in more than 200 Home Depot stores from Philadelphia through Delaware, Maryland, Virginia, northern North Carolina, parts of West Virginia and the southern Ohio Valley.
