    I worked at Armstrong Garden Centers (Less than a year)

    Pros

    coworkers are very friendly. Everyone seems to know each other, even at different store locations.

    Cons

    employees, especially managers get moved around to different locations constantly. There is a lot of miscommunication between the retail stores and the corporate office. Never felt like I could really get a career going here.

    Advice to Management

    be more tentative to customer complaints and common manager concerns. Managers practically give their lives while working here.
