I worked at Scotts Miracle-Gro part-time for less than a year

Pros

started in feb 2012 - due to warm spring and lost over 30 lbs -
changed from paying you for distance to proving 2 /hr extra for commutes over 30 minutes - initial salary 13/hr = total 15/hr
401k & roth - strongly recommend their Roth - over 401K - have a very good match invest 1/2 salary

Cons

scheduling typically worked 15 hr a wk in feb & 20 hr/wk in march 30 hrs a week in april fell back to 20 hrs in may and 8 hrs in June - fertilizer sales from june to september are very slow & only multi-year are kept - other part time employees get laidoff in summer & after october -
