    Unqualified management and unprofessional

    Supervisor (Current Employee) Milwaukee, WI

    ProsIf you've never had a job before and are under the age of 18. Great for kids over summer break.

    ConsDon't stay more than you're hired for. If it's a seasonal job, leave it at that. Current systems in use are antiquated, both in technology and tradition. Expect to be judged and treated unfairly based on managements perceptions.

    Advice to Senior ManagementManagement is promoted based on social merit, nothing more. Lacking of any technical education let alone management training.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Not very good

    Seasonal Worker (Former Employee) Waukesha, WI

    ProsIt's a job. You'll get a tan. Decent enough pay for the work. You'll meet some decent workers, can't say the same about the managers.

    ConsUncaring managers
    Treating Workers poorly

    It's not a good way to run the company when just about everyone who works there don't like the managers.

    Advice to Senior ManagementCare about the workers more. I know so many come and go year after year, but it matters.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Not a place for advancement

    Cashier (Former Employee) Ashwaubenon, WI

    ProsGood starter job, easy to get in for employment, 20% discount

    ConsWork outside on the hottest days in summer, little pay with barely any raises, intimidating management, cut hours drastically in winter, the only thing the management cares about are themselves and the customers not their employess

    Advice to Senior ManagementDon't let the people managing the store return things for customers so easily, treat the employees better and praise them more.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Job.. That is all

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Milwaukee, WI

    ProsIt's a job and although its a small local company, they don't have a great grasp on how to move a business forward.

    ConsTook them a long time to decide on many important decisions that needed to be made. Also Shut down Just Plants stores when they though was necessary with little or no warning to employees.

    Advice to Senior ManagementGet every one on the same page, and let your employees know what you are going to do with the business in the future.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    It was just ok.

    Plant Department (Former Employee) Green Bay, WI

    ProsWorked outside, easy work to jump in and do, able to take time off as needed, other workers friendly for most part

    Consinconsistent schedule, difficult to learn where everything is and it keeps moving around constantly, managers don't do anything

    Advice to Senior Managementget off you butt and do something yourself

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
