    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.

    Small stores, so there is not much room for advancement at the store level.

    Keep up the training and encouragement for staff!

    Pros

    Home has a laid back atmosphere with a friendly community of employees. For the most part employees are treated fairly. Large corporation with a country feel.

    Cons

    Archaic business model. This comes from that community feel and it's country roots. Much of management is there because, well, they've always been there, not because they are necessarily the best fit for the job. Most employees would say wages are low and benefit package is expensive. The IT side of the company is definitely lacking.
