Armstrong Garden Center

Sales Associate (Former Employee)
Santa Monica, CA

ProsWorking 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.

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

Advice to Senior ManagementI 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.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Get to work with beautiful plants

    Quasi Management (Current Employee)

    I have been working at Armstrong Garden Centers


    Pros: Bountiful sunshine and interesting plants. Cons: Wages: They do not pay a living wage, and consider 32 hours full time. Scheduling changes at the whim of regional managers. If it… Advice to Senior Management: Time to hire a professional leadership team that can manage… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
