It was a good experience
Vendor/ Customer Service (Former Employee), Abington, MAJune 26, 2015
I enjoyed working outdoors. I just wish they took more pride in their products and their employees. Not much organization was being done. Although I did enjoy my coworkers very much.

Plant Essentials is not an EEOC company
Plant Personnel (Former Employee), MichiganNovember 19, 2014
Pros: the district manager and the metro coordinator for michigan never comes to your job, they say they are at work but really at home, no other pros unless you are a friend or family member of the district manager or metro coordinator
Cons: if they don't like you they will fire you without an explanation, they will pass you over to give promotions to their friends and family, they say horrible things about you if they do not like you or want to get rid of you
If you are a friend or family member of management i.e. district manager or metro coordinator and you are not a minority then you will have no problems. Management is good at setting you up to lose your job if they don't like you or you are not a part of their immediate circle.

Great Job to Work
Field Representative (Current Employee), Perkasie, PANovember 3, 2014
Pros: a lot of pros to this job
Cons: raises are hard to come by
Love the people I work with. Typical day varies depending on what part of the season it is. Management is great, laid back, friendly. This job isn't hard. You learn how to handle and work through the stress of peak time. Most enjoyable part of my job is team work, working with like minded workers, being look up to for direction and support.

Retail workplace
My merchandiser job (Former Employee), Warsaw, INSeptember 20, 2014
Each day I would put out new plants that came off the trucks onto tables and racks to be sold. I was able to work my hours each week with no set schedule and no weekends. The only downfall was that the job was only seasonal.

Seasonal employment with the opportunity to learn about flowers, plants, and trees.
Merchandiser (Part-Time/Seasonal) (Former Employee), Perkasie, PAJuly 28, 2014
Pros: it was hands-on with the merchandise and customers.
Cons: we were asked to have little communication with the customers.
This position was seasonal and I only had the opportunity to work at Lowes for a short period of time. My co-worker was pleasant but didn't seem to want to share her knowledge and assistance with me at times. The two of us merchandisers were unsupervised on a daily basis but we knew what needed to be done and did so in a timely manner. The hardest part of the job was learning where all of the merchandise went because there were several tables and locations and I didn't get to work for them long enough to memorize everything. The best part of the job was knowing what needed to be done and getting it done the best way we knew.

Good physical work
Merchandiser (Former Employee), MichiganApril 18, 2014
Pros: good physical work and lots of fresh air
Cons: management, plan o gram needs to be a rough draft not set in stone
Field Supervisor created more problems then help when they showed up once a week.Working with the store employees was great.Loved setting up displays.Even thou we were not suppose to wait on customers it was nice to help when we could.Plan o gram ok as a rough draft but not all store locations can fit to it.Adjustments need to be considered.I was able to work 4 days 10 hours but when the next season came around was told that wasn't an option.The Con for this job is seasonal ,wage freeze and no benefits and poor management.
