We are seeking an full-time Outdoor Enthusiast (Arborist; tree pruner/climber) to join our St. Louis team! We are looking for that special person who is not afraid to make things happen from getting started with a pruning job to showing the neighbor how much Ryan's forestry or turf department could make their property a more beautiful place. This person is one in a thousand. Are you that person? At Ryan, you will:
Learn and understand the Company culture
Successfully complete on-the-job training as outlined for each division; forestry (pruning and spraying), and turf care.
Perform the duties of specific jobs in the field, in order to both facilitate learning as well as support business needs
Attend/Participate in assigned training and development courses
Lead and/or participate in projects as assigned (show you can both give and take directions)
Perform all assigned responsibilities according to established safety and security policies, guidelines and legal regulations
and, most of us, lead us in sales and growing our customer base by networking, building relationships with green industry partners and the community!
This is a physical, outdoor job.
While performing the duties of this job, the employee is frequently required to walk, stand, use hands/arms, while working 10-12 hour days (50-60 hours / week) in peak seasons.
You are occasionally required to sit, climb, balance, stoop, kneel, crouch, or crawl; must regularly lift and /or move up to 80 pounds and regularly exposed to chemicals, outside weather conditions (wet, cold, hot and/or humid).
College degree preferred however we will train you to do the work you will learn to love
You must have a good sense of who you are, humble, but highly motivated. We say, hungry, humble and smart
A degree in horticulture or forestry is ideal, but again, not necessary as you can learn both on the job
Looking for someone who is competitive, hard working, and an excellent communicator
You will become a partner in the highest quality lawn and tree company in the Midwest. In addition, there are advancement opportunities in other communities we serve.
Benefits: RYAN is an employee owned company. You will become a partner and share in the growth.
