    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Its a job to pay you cell phone bills throughout high school. No career advancement possible. Pay rate increases were terrible and they no longer give bonuses. Could take long weekends when able to switch with other employees.

    Cons

    Long hours, clothing smells like fertilizer. Not good for your health because they do not provide masks. Harsh lawn chemicals.

    Advice to Management

    allow for advancement throughout the company. Higher a store manager that knows how to interact with the employees. Show some compassion and willingness to teach the younger generation. Come out on the floor and help sell instead of staying inside a cubicle.

    Pros

    Everyone there was friendly, easy to work with.

    Cons

    Job posting says pay is around $20 an hour but they will hire you on term until October for $15.52 and you will only get paid $20/hr if they decide to hire you full time. They will tell you that you only have to lift up to 50 lbs but this is not true. If you are strong you they will put you in a different area where you have to lift heavier things. The heaviest thing I lifted was a shower door, 150lbs.

    Pros

    Shifts are consistent, and are not micromanaged by managers but by team leaders. A couple of hours off to visit the doctor, run an errand or whatever was usually fine as long as it was mentioned a couple of days before and there was no large task to do that day

    Cons

    Could be very tiring, as I often worked outside in harsh conditions, and had to load and unload heavy items and equipment

    Advice to Management

    Don't forget where your employees come from; treat them as an equal, not as a lower-class; keep up the great work!
