    I worked at Gardenvision Merchandising

    Pros

    It was a great job.I enjoyed working outside and the limited supervision was nice.

    Cons

    Pay is decent if you are a retiree.hours cut back to much in winter and they don't have overtime in the spring. Lots of turn over and not much room to move up.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Train the young guns better with time management and priorities.

  2. Great job (if you have a good supervisor).

    I have been working at Gardenvision Merchandising

    Pros

    The hours are flexible, with most weekends off. The Lowe's associates are friendly, at least most of them. You get to work outside.

    Cons

    You have to deal with extreme temperatures. Some of Lowe's management wants you to do things that you're not allowed to.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    My advice to management is to monitor the supervisors and make sure that they are doing what they are supposed to be doing, also. Some of them yell at you, lie to your face, and have their favorites. Rules should apply to everyone, not to certain individuals.

    I worked at Gardenvision Merchandising full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    You get a lot of "free" time in terms of the work that needs to be done.
    You get most of your weekends and most major holidays off.
    Flexible work hours and convenience.

    Cons

    Underpaid for most of what you have to deal with.
    No clear authority over what store wants and your company wants
    Needs a better training platform for mid level mgt. Often times focuses majority of training on merchandiser level.

    I have been working at Gardenvision Merchandising part-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    You get to work with different types of plants, which I love. You also meet some great people. Your outside instead of being stuck indoors all day. My boss is laid back and fun to work for. Also very flexible work schedule and decent pay.

    Cons

    If you don't like the heat this job is not for you. Very stressful and fast paced during the spring. Hours are up and down, not full time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    My advice would be to notice how hard your people work for you. Appreciate the one's who do there jobs right. And when your in our store, realize your not there enough to see everything we do.

    I have been working at Gardenvision Merchandising

    Pros

    Entreprenuerial spirit, support from management while allowing for things to not go as planned, a focus on growth, both of the company and of individuals, very little political baggage, celebration of success, a desire and need to be great, not just good.

    Cons

    Becoming a really big company with some of the junk that comes along with size, increases in salary are few and far between

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you're doing, but remember to reward the people who are driving your success not just once when the big hurdles are overcome, but consistently so that they know their continued effort is noted and apprciated.

    I have been working at Gardenvision Merchandising

    Pros

    Freedom to try things, no one looking over your shoulder, great people, considerate supervisors, incredible positive energy. They work with my schedule and my family comes first.

    Cons

    Working outside is sometimes not great. The public can be not so nice. I wish the company paid more and had better benefits.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Remember to tell us that you appreciate what we do. We work HARD!

    I have been working at Gardenvision Merchandising part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Flexible part time hours, autonomous work outside with plants, off every weekend, holiday and vacation pay after a year.

    Cons

    Miserable working conditions during the summer. If the Lowe's people see how hard you work, they will leave all of the plants for you to put out while they stand around and talk. Hours change at a moments notice. Poor communication from management, and from Lowe's.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make yourself more visible! Communicate with your workers and let them know what is expected of them, rather than giving them a manual with inapplicable pictures.
