GardenVision maintains Lowes Garden Center plant displays. Work load for Merchandisers ranges from slow to very busy. They are usually outside, so summer hours are very hot and tiring in Florida.
Pay is low, starts at 9/hr, max is 11. Even after 3 years I was making less than 10. Hours are seasonal. FT in Spring, PT in Summer and Winter. Avg is 30 hrs per week. Little room to advance.
GardenVision ngmt is fairly easy going. Lowe's mgrs and Dept heads harder to deal with. Customers assume that you're a plant expert and will ask a lot of questions. Merchandisers get no significant training about plant care.
Some schedule flexibility
low pay, few advancement opportunities
