On the road
Sales/Account Representative (Current Employee) –  Salinas, CAMarch 21, 2019
You are merchandising plants onto garden center tables while setting your own hours. Being on the road heading to the next store is the hardest part as well as now having corporate orders sent in instead of creating orders at store level.

Horrible place to work
Sales Merchandiser (Former Employee) –  Poughkeepsie, NYOctober 5, 2018
Altman hired a manager who had no prior experience working as a vendor for Home Depot and has made various foolish mistakes that he simply could not own up to. Excuses were made that he is new and that the company is also new to the area. Very unorganized and the company rips you off BIG TIME when it comes to paying for your mileage. Steer away from this position. They will make you work up to 18 stores at a time. Funny that the company has been looking for a replacement for a few months now and they can't find anyone. Use this review to your advantage and dont waste your time!!!
Pros
None
Cons
Pay, wear and tear on your vehicle, poor management

dont waste your time
Sales Merchandiser (Current Employee) –  TexasAugust 25, 2018
Working at altman plants has been a complete disappointment. i applied because i love plants and thought this job would be perfect for me. I got absolutely no training at all. my boss got absolutely no training at all because nobody knows what they are doing. they expect you to drive to other peoples stores more than an hour away And not compensate you for gas to fix them because they are too lazy to show up to work or do the work and they wont get in trouble but you will get yelled at in front of everyone because one of your tags were facing crooked. they are not flexible for scheduling and will make you come in no matter what the weather to wait for a truck that might not show up. they dont care how good of a job you do if you mess up one time its they will act like you are the worst employee ever. Dont expect any praise or advancement because no matter what they say they dont promote from within and hire outside people to be your boss who have no experience because it is so hard to keep people in your position because it sucks so bad and they fire people for stupid stuff. this has been the case for them everywhere i have been. they dont care about you and they dont even try to hide it. unless you are totally desperate dont waste your time. otherwise have fun working in rain sleet snow hail or 110° weather and have fun with the 15 hour days and then getting yelled at because you have too much overtime (even though it wasnt your choice) and threatening to fire you because customers bought all of the hanging baskets and you didnt re fill them because you ran out. OH YEAH and  more... being bullied by all of the home depot employees you have to work with because they HATE merchandisers and always try to make you do home depots job. AND they signed me up for insurance i didnt sign anything for against my will and won't refund me even though i didnt sign up. and the direct deposit they never do right and youll get your check almost a week late EVERYTIME. just dont do it if you value your life. for real. just don't.  less

labor intensive, high pace work environment
Sales merchandiser (Current Employee) –  Vista, CAAugust 9, 2018
-Early start, sweeping, merchandising,watering plants,trimming plants, and building product displays.

-I learned how to work by myself while staying motivated and keeping my eye on daily objectives.

-The hardest part about this job is having to deal with dangerous merchandise such as large cactus and thorny shrubs.
Pros
work outside
Cons
inconsistent work schedule, No milage compensation
