    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Its a job to pay you cell phone bills throughout high school. No career advancement possible. Pay rate increases were terrible and they no longer give bonuses. Could take long weekends when able to switch with other employees.

    Cons

    Long hours, clothing smells like fertilizer. Not good for your health because they do not provide masks. Harsh lawn chemicals.

    Advice to Management

    allow for advancement throughout the company. Higher a store manager that knows how to interact with the employees. Show some compassion and willingness to teach the younger generation. Come out on the floor and help sell instead of staying inside a cubicle.

    I worked at Home Hardware Stores part-time

    Pros

    Paid just about award, but only worked weekend and public holidays. Family run so clear and fair rules didn't always apply.

    Cons

    Only worked weekends and public holidays with penalty rates. I wouldn't work week days on base wage.
    Favouritism. Boys club. Unorganised. Promises never kept.

    Advice to Management

    Follow through on your promised incentives. Staff need to be managed properly to stop the gossip and chatter. Management to scared of confrontation so people behaved however they wanted, no ownership. Compete lack of consistency.
