    I have been working at Scotts Miracle-Gro full-time

    Pros

    Good place to work of your starting off in the field...good training good equipment you learn a lot of skills needed to succeed in the work place

    Cons

    Fast paced and revenue based work. Must be self motivated and willing to work hard. Decent pay but commission scale can be confusing. Make sure to ask questions about pay and be willing to work in ALL weather

    Advice to Management

    Be more forth coming with pay. Change pay methods end the 1/2 time overtime it's a horrible way to pay employees. End mandatory overtime for profits

    I worked at Scotts Miracle-Gro (More than a year)

    Pros

    It was a good job. I didn't have many problems with the work.

    Cons

    You start as a temp and stay there for awhile then when you finally get seasonal expect to be there for a few years unless you know some one that works there.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more people in directly faster and quit favoring your butt buddies.
