productive, physically challenging day with lots of exercise, and smelling the roses!
Plant Merchandiser (Current Employee) – TX – May 6, 2015
I start out my day by walking the garden center, watering the plants where needed, standing and walking, crouching, reaching and merchandising beautiful plants everyday. I report to managers on duty and insure they are happy with my job performance, interact with staff and customers on a daily basis and just have fun answering questions about our products, advising on plant placements,explaining the differences of annuals and perenials. The hardest part of my job is bringing in the racks to the garden center, I must pull between 6-13 racks twice a week and it can be tricky when we are having bad weather because the garden center closes its outdoor gates and I have to bring the racks through the front entrance, but the best part is merchandising all that color! I am an avid gardener and always dreamed of working with plants and I am loving it!
I don't have to go to a gym, I walk between 5-8 miles daily at this job
bad weather makes it a little difficult, but than I love the outdoors.
