    I worked at Wentworth Nursery full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    It's difficult to really find anything nice to say other than the pay checks don't bounce.

    Cons

    The Wentworth's are truly nasty people, unlikeable and unreasonable in many ways. The retail end of the business looses money every year so business is run on a shoe-string budget. Poor evaluators of employee talent. Work conditions are bad- lots of mold in the buildings, everything leaks when it rains, store's are run down and old. Business nearly collapsed around 7 years ago, 80+% of employees were let go in off season to save $$$. Long time employees make life difficult for everyone. Long summer hours, often with little business coming in the doors. Bills often paid late in summer, delaying delivery of merchandise. Very high prices anger customers. Bad recommendations given when you leave for another job. Need I say more???

    Advice to Management

    It wouldn't do any good to offer advice as the owners are very set in their ways and have little desire to improve the working conditions in the stores.
