Good Place for Seasonal Work

Pros

Pay was good, and enjoyed the work. People were easy to get along with and managers treated you well. If they trusted you to do your job it was very easy and there was lots of freedom, if not you had someone breathing down your neck making sure things got done properly.

Cons

Lots of driving between stores and the hours are not always guaranteed. Working outside with soils and fertilizer is rough during a Houston summer but bearable.

  1.  

    60+ hour weeks, little respect for employees

    Pros

    Mediocre paycheck, mediocre benefits, mediocre commissions for the trouble. Not a bad job for building experience in a "high-pressure" role. Co-workers are actually a lot of fun,

    Cons

    60+ hour work week, no life, high pressure scripts, two months of mandatory unemployment every year, Chinese overtime (paid at about $5 an hour, not even sure how this is legal but apparently it is). Jump ship when you can, if you can sell here you can make twice as much somewhere else.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    No point whatsoever in offering this... these guys stopped caring a long time ago, believe me it shows.
