It has become a corporate style company that cares only about the bottom line, not their employees or customers.

Pros

Working outdoors among beautiful plants. Meeting and helping customers with their landscaping challenges. Health care benefits. Nice fellow employees

Low salary. Required to work weekends. Constant schedule changes. Few raises despite promises. Poor ESOP plan. Zero job security.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Your sales force is your front line. Stop reducing it. Treat them fairly, ethically and with loyalty! Keep your promises.

    They pay you a little bit over minimum wage, they care about customer service, and treat their employees pretty well.

    Feels limited - not a whole a lot of room to move up.

    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.
