    I have been working at Armstrong Garden Centers full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Working alongside customers to design and create great outdoor spaces. As a designer, I am provided customer information, visit with customers to understand their vision for their project and then my job is to be creative. I am excited to get to create small spaces including vegetable gardens or small color gardens to big spaces including pools, hardscapes and major landscape rennovations. I make my own hours, get to be creative and have the support and backing of a corporation including benefits and paid vacation.

    Cons

    We are busy! There is never a dull moment and we are always busy with new customer projects.
