Teaching and learning
Merchandising Specialist (Former Employee), York, SCDecember 21, 2014
Pros: flexable hours
Cons: seasonel job
Working outside in the fresh air is always a plus! Learning about the products and passing on my knowledge to the customers. Giving them peace of mind they can use the knowledge given to them and there hard earned money was well spent.

Family is great but lacking in other areas
Marketing Manager (Former Employee), Huntersville, NCNovember 6, 2014
Pros: family is caring and generous with their employees
Cons: micromanaged, terrible management.
No flexibility if you are sick or traffic delays. Must punch timecard. It doesn't matter if you have over 40 hours a week but if you are a minute late, you will be disciplined. Marketing department lacks any sort of effective management and isn't a true marketing department.. If working in the greenhouse or other departments, I would recommend if you are ok with being micromanaged.

Anyone used to a professional, unbiased, non-confrontational environment with educated, effective management style, be warned. Severely lacking management training! I would not recommend for an office position.

Long and Hard Day
Field worker (Former Employee), York, SCAugust 13, 2014
Pros: n/a
Cons: half hour breaks, long hours, seasonal job.
Typical day at work starts early in the morning and lasts up to 9:00 PM or more.

Simply learned of general labor. Just transporting, laying, and maintaining fields of potted plants for distribution.

Management alright.

Co-workers mixed feelings. While some worked hard, others didn't.

Hardest day of the job is the hours.

Enjoyable part is leaving.

Nice place, but to many Chiefs under one teepee.
Shipping Clerk (Former Employee), Huntersville, NCAugust 9, 2013
Nice place, but to many Chiefs under one teepee. In addition, there was to much bad blood between the ethnic groups. Hardest part of the job was trying to do what five different people told you to do at one time. Most enjoyable part of the job was the salary increases.
