Who’s Hiring:

The cherry growers listed below are currently hiring for their summer 2018 harvest. In the South Okanagan and Similkameen, harvest starts in late June. In the Central, North and Creston, many will start in mid-July. Harvest often continues until mid or late August. Every orchard is different!

Remember, cherry picking is not the only job that needs to be done by these companies. And, not everyone is good at cherry picking! Many of these companies also need people to help in the field, operate equipment, work as sorters and quality control in the packinghouse, handle boxes in the cold storage and more.

If you are going to apply to work, please make sure you are committed to working.  Tell your employer if you can’t stay all season. Getting the cherries harvested and packed is a big job and it happens very quickly in a short time period. All growers are looking for reliable and hard working employees to help them get through the entire cherry season. Good luck!
