    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.

    I worked at Armstrong Garden Centers full-time

    Pros

    Great place to work hard (really hard) outdoors and with people, and, of course plants!

    Cons

    There is not much room for advancement in this company. There is an Assistant Manager and a Manager in each store. The Corporate office is located in Glendora, CA, so unless you are willing to relocate for an opportunity at Corporate, your options for advancement are limited.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Create opportunities for intermediary advancement, such as 'Pesticide/Herbicide Expert' and be sure to reward that advancement with a bump in pay.
