    Pros

    I love my job! In looking at some of the reviews on this website, I can't help but feel that this is a reflection of just a few upset individuals. My experience - and that of many of my fellow associates is quite the opposite. I am a proud employee owner and am disappointed to see our company described so inaccurately. I have been an associate owner for almost 10 years and I love being a part of the strong and largest independent garden center in the nation. We work hard and know what we're doing! The quality of service and products that are at Armstrong Garden Centers are second to none and many of us have chosen to make our home here and build our career. I love working with our customers, designing their outdoor space and building friendships.

    Cons

    The job isn't always easy - but who would want that anyway. We work hard to make our store beautiful and to make sure our customer is excited to see what is new in our garden center.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work. The best interest of the company, the associates and ensuring the success of our ESOP is what makes us so strong and is a testament to why we have been around for 125 years!

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Armstrong Garden Centers in November 2014.

    Interview

    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.
