I worked at Armstrong Garden Centers full-time (Less than a year)
If you love plants and like helping people with their gardens.
Very difficult to perform optimally during busy times with phones to be answered, customer questions, and long lines of people whose sales you must ring up. Green shirts handle all that. Consider being a brown shirt if you don't like time pressure and extreme multi-tasking.
Advice to Management
The pay is too low considering the expertise required.
I applied online. The process took 11+ months. I interviewed at Armstrong Garden Centers (Sherman Oaks, CA) in May 2016.
Friendly, informal, low pressure. 1:1 with Store Manager. Briefly questioned former employment and how these skills related to the job being interviewed for. Very nice environment, all staff seemed very relaxed and friendly. I felt it went very well.
