Employment

We strive to be as great a place to work as we are to shop!

Greenhouse is a locally-owned housewares and furniture store located in beautiful downtown Bellingham, Washington. We have a vibrant and exciting atmosphere with merchandise that changes daily and special events taking place throughout the year. We are community-minded and do our best to reflect Bellingham's values and culture in our store and employment practices. We also offer excellent staff perks, vacation time, and various other benefits to vested employees. Finally, we value our families above all else and are closed on most major holidays – so you will never be asked to work Christmas Day!

We hire year-round as needed to fill regular and seasonal positions. Please call or come in to the store to inquire about current job openings. We are happy to take your application anytime and will review it when a position becomes available.

Applications can be picked up at the store or may be downloaded and printed below. Please fill them out completely and attach a resume. Applications need to be filled out by hand and turned in to the store manager or assistant manager in person, during our open hours.

Like many small and medium-sized retailers, we prioritize applicants with flexible or open schedules throughout the week, but applicants with limited availability are still encouraged to apply!
