Working at Thompson's:
At Thompson’s Strawberry Farm we want to create the best experience for all customers and their families. We are a working and family friendly farm, which means that all employees will be required to work outside and with others regularly. If you enjoy being outdoors, engaging with others, and want to be a part of a fun and enthusiastic environment for our farm and guests, then these positions will be perfect for you!
Retail Stand/Cashier positions will get the chance to greet customers as they enter the farm, and help guide them through our farm's processes. Ground maintenance workers will be expected to assist in day-to-day upkeep activities and parking duties to help maintain the property and flow of operations. All positions require some sort of physical and interactive activities that include (but is not limited to) lifting up to 25lb, the ability to climb in and out of vehicles and trailers, as well as extended periods of standing, walking and talking with customers.
We believe our amazing staff is the key to continuing to fulfill our vision of making our space a premier agritainment destination. As a family farm, the quality and care put into every aspect of what we do is at the heart of our company and we strive to work with like-minded individuals. Our business is open every day but we are much busier on the weekends, so weekend availability is a must. Applicants must also have reliable transportation to and from work. Priority is given to those with full-time availability and that hold a valid driver’s license. Applicants who are 15 or 16 without a license will still be accepted, but positions will be limited. We appreciate your interest and if this sounds like a good fit for you, we want to hear from you!
We have two periods of hiring: The spring and the fall. In the spring, before strawberry season, we have our largest hire with positions starting early-June. In the fall, before school is back in session, we have another period of hiring with positions starting as soon as the applicant is available. We accept applications all season long.
