Landscape Crew Member

Covid-19 Considerations
We take the current global pandemic very seriously at Cool Ponds. Here are the precautions we have taken that will affect all applicants and employees:
  • Applicants will apply online. Any applicants that fit our job needs will receive a phone interview. In person interviews will be conducted with masks and will be socially distanced.
  • All Cool Ponds' staff members are required wear masks at all times when indoors and within vehicles (if travelling with another person).
  • Landscape crew members will drive a company vehicle by themselves to customers' houses until mid-May.
  • If any Cool Ponds' staff member is exposed to anyone who has tested positive for COVID-19 or experiences any COVID-19-like symptom, that staff member will quarantine at home. 
  • Staff members are encouraged to receive a COVID-19 vaccination when vaccinations are made available to them.
On Cool Ponds' landscape crew, you'll work with our small, amazing team, creating all types of incredible backyard landscaping projects for our customers. There's really no better feeling than seeing that huge smile on customer's face when we've completed their backyard paradise!
Job Description 

Here’s what your job will entail:

  • Work days Tuesday - Friday 8am - 6pm (you will love having three day weekends!).

  • We will train you in everything you need to know about landscaping and pond building. If you have experience in any kind of construction-type work, let us know! Carpentry, electrical, and plumbing knowledge always comes in handy (but is not necessary).

  • You will be challenged physically. That’s a guarantee! You can cancel your gym membership: lifting rocks and digging holes is a better workout.

  • This is a seasonal job that runs March through November.

  • Building water features requires great communication. You’ll work closely with all members of our staff.

In the spring and fall, you’ll be doing pond cleanings. You’ll drive one of our company vehicles and either on your own or with another crew member, you’ll drive all over the city to service water features. Customers are so thankful to have you help get their ponds straightened up!

Why Cool Ponds Rocks 
We are highly protective of our play time! Our landscape crew works Tuesday through Friday from 8am to 6pm. We work hard during those 40 hour work weeks, but it's worth the sweat for three day weekends! 
One of the reasons Cool Ponds has been around since 2004 is our ability to adapt and grow. We need fellow team members who are just as adaptable.
All of us at Cool Ponds have chosen our careers because we genuinely love our work. We love what we do. We have a ton of fun working together. If you're missing joy in your work day, then this is a job for you.
  • A proven capacity to do hard work. We ask that you have some sort of outdoor labor experience. Although this job is rewarding, it is physically hard! 
  • A willingness to learn. We will teach you everything you need to know.
  • Ability to find the good in every situation. We work in some really tough conditions. Indiana summers are hot. And cleaning a pond in March is cold. If you can work hard and still have a smile on your face, you'll fit in just fine.
  • You'll need to love being outdoors. We try to mimic nature as best as we can. To understand how to build a natural waterfall, you'll need to know what a natural waterfall looks like!
  • A drive to be better every day. When you work with a small company like ours, every individual attitude makes a big impact. We all strive to be better at our jobs and to be better people. An understanding of your own strengths and a will to improve your weaknesses will not only help yourself -- it'll help your entire team.
  • Clear communication. You'll be texting, emailing, calling, and speaking face to face not only with your fellow landscape crew members but with every member of Cool Ponds. And your customers too.
  • A fun-loving attitude. What's the point of working a job if it's no fun to you? We come to work every day excited to be here -- what we do is cool and the people we work with are fun to be around.
We ask that you please apply onlineIf your work history and personality questions fit for what we're looking for, we will get in touch with you for an interview.
