While not a horrible place to work by any means, there is a bit of a learning curve involved. Most people are hired for seasonal spots, usually meaning from March or April through maybe October.
There is a lot of lifting involved, as plants arrive on 5-foot tall rolling racks. Some of the larger pots may weigh close to 40 pounds.
The pay isn't the best, but good enough for a supplemental source of income or a first job environment.
Management varied in terms of their involvement. Some days they were hands-off, letting you tidy up the Garden Center on your own. Other days, like when new product arrived, the supervisors would be right there with you, getting their hands dirty and moving plants.
Possibly the worst thing was the lack of a set schedule. Sometimes I had to call my supervisor and ask what days I needed to come to work the next week.
