    I worked at Gethsemane Garden Center full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Not very challenging work, busy during the spring/summer, after Christmas things slow down and work dwindles as well. I can't complain because there are great staff members and flexible hours.

    Cons

    Can be extremely boring during slow season. Obvious hierarchy between employees.

    Positive Outlook

    I have been working at Gethsemane Garden Center part-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    A family owned business that treats you like part of the family. Tough environment when it's busy, but those stressful spring and holiday weeks are certainly team building! Many managers have longevity, so there is a great depth of experience to learn from.

    Cons

    The seasonality of the business is hard for some employees, but part of any horticultural business.

    Advice to Management

    You've got the secret sauce. Stay true to yourselves.

    I have been working at Gethsemane Garden Center full-time

    Pros

    Great coworkers, relaxed atmosphere. It's a pretty low stress position

    Cons

    Owner can be very temperamental. The work is a lot of physical labor (though not super strenuous), and you don't get to use your brain or independent judgement much
