    I worked at Armstrong Garden Centers

    Pros

    Working outside in a beautiful environment is the best reason. It really feels good to work in the fresh air and amongst the plant life. You also get some exercise in the nursery. Also, not stuck behind a desk all day. Dealing with people on an everyday business in a social environment is also very enjoyable. There are many return customers so there are some nice relationships that can develop there. Overall, the other employees are nice people who do have good intentions, although there are spats between employees once in a while, but I believe that occurs within companies everywhere.

    Cons

    Dealing with retail customers can be a painful experience. Also, does not pay great, and the need to work weekends.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I noticed many of the employees who had worked at the nursery had animosity towards the management. Overall, the longer the employee had been there the more it seemed they complained. That is one reason I didn't want to stick around.

    Pros

    Being outdoors, working with great customers, nice mix of personalities.

    Cons

    Low pay, not much incentive to give your all. Unmotivated and stagnant store managers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make sure your regionals are like real people and not brainwashed fools.
