    Pros

    Working outside in a beautiful environment is the best reason. It really feels good to work in the fresh air and amongst the plant life. You also get some exercise in the nursery. Also, not stuck behind a desk all day. Dealing with people on an everyday business in a social environment is also very enjoyable. There are many return customers so there are some nice relationships that can develop there. Overall, the other employees are nice people who do have good intentions, although there are spats between employees once in a while, but I believe that occurs within companies everywhere.

    Cons

    Dealing with retail customers can be a painful experience. Also, does not pay great, and the need to work weekends.

    Advice to Management

    I noticed many of the employees who had worked at the nursery had animosity towards the management. Overall, the longer the employee had been there the more it seemed they complained. That is one reason I didn't want to stick around.

    I worked at Armstrong Garden Centers full-time

    Pros

    Great to work semi outdoors and with plants. Good place to start out if you want into the retail horticulture industry.

    Cons

    Offensive upper management team, devious and underhanded, poor management of employees. Management employee expectations are out of line and unreasonable. They enjoy pitting employees against each other and watching the outcome while laughing (seen myself).

    Advice to Management

    Change upper management completely.
