Tougas Family Farm is looking for team members to work in a fun, fast paced, family oriented atmosphere, both inside our Farm Store and Kitchen, and out in the fields for Pick-Your-Own. We begin hiring in April for our June strawberry season. Mandatory staff orientation will be May 18, 2019.
We are looking for friendly, motivated, hard working individuals with a positive attitude to work during our seasons. Weekends are our busiest time. Availability on Saturdays and Sundays is a priority, and required during peak weekends. Shift times vary depending on the job and department, but generally we schedule shifts between the hours of 7am and 6pm. Jobs may include physical activity/heavy lifting. Employees must be at least 16 years of age and able to work as a team in an active, fun, fast paced environment for at least 6 hours or more. Parents: please do not inquire about jobs for your teen. They need to show us the interest and initiative to inquire for themselves. Please allow them to undertake this process on their own.
As an employee you interact directly with people who are looking for fresh air, fresh fruit, and family fun! Our guests have planned their visit, driven to get here, and are planning to spend the day with us. It’s our job to make sure they find the services they need throughout the day, and have fun throughout their visit. It is our job to make people happy. At Tougas Family Farm we aim to excel in customer service, smile no matter what, and help facilitate an experience that will leave our guests coming back again and again, year after year.
How Do I Apply?
- Fill out the application (along with a resume if you have one) and email it to firstname.lastname@example.org
