I have been working at Armstrong Garden Centers full-time (More than a year)
Truly an open door company with a lot of great employees across the board. I worked for 5 years for a different independent nursery and came to admire the industry. I began to work for Armstrong a year ago and almost immediately I felt my hard work and dedication was recognized. I expressed my desire at the very beginning to work towards management level and they have helped me get there. The very president of this company started as a water boy. I really enjoy working outside, helping customers be successful, smelling plants, and enjoying everything else nature offers.
It can be hot outside, long hours during spring, and working weekends. However it is retail and it says owner on my name badge (employee owned) so I work as if I am an owner.
Advice to Management
Better air conditioning and a company Christmas party. They have asked me before if there is one thing you would change about the company what would it be. It is seriously a difficult question. If I did have any advice I know I can tell the Vice President directly and my opinion would be considered.

I applied in-person. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Armstrong Garden Centers in November 2014.
Picked up an application in store and came back the next day to drop off and take a test to qualify for the Nursery Professional position. I was contacted later for a more formal interview. Very relaxed and friendly, walked around the garden center and was assessed for basic knowledge on how one would help a customer while working.
