Nursery Professional (Current Employee) – Thousand Oaks, CA – August 8, 2012
There is never down time at Armstrong Garden. If not busy helping customers, there is always something to care for, check in or accomplish at this job. One aspect is that if you are not initially hired as full time, you are basically a contract employee who gets less hours as the customer flow slows down. There are no guaranteed hour minimums here, and if the customer flow slows down, your hours will be cut substantially. The co-workers are amazing, Very hard working and plant intelligent people working here. The most enjoyable part of the job is to interact with the customers and assist them with exciting landscape plans. The hardest part of the job is that you have to go from 7 am - 6 pm most days with only 1/2 hour to get off your feet. It's good to be so active, but may not be for everyone.
