Great Company For high school kids on summer break
Field coordinator (Current Employee) – Philadelphia, PA – April 7, 2019
P.E ( Plant Essentials) is a great company to work for, it is a seasonal position starting early spring til mid fall(ish). hours are giving to a location on a weekly basis, meaning those are the hours that P.E has to be at the store, and the feild rep is resopnsible for dividing those among the employees, though the job is pretty easy your moving around plants all day, weather it be setting them up for display, removing damaged ones or unloading shippments byou just pushing plants all day and I love plants so I loved it and learned alot but you are out in the elements, I live in Philly and the summers can get pretty hot and humid they provide you with water and there is always an inside area for you to work on for days that are too hot. My supervisor was pretty chill and just told me the hours i needed to work for the week and allowed me to work them as i pleased, this is usual but not standar as this was the second supervisor i had and both allowed me to do that. You dont get raises and you have to do Direct Deposite or they charged you to send a paper check, this wasnt a problem but I found it unusual. you kinda work with out supervision because the field rep may only come once or twice a week and you may never see them, but the store manager is your delegator and is who you go to for tasks. I'll admit some days there isnt much to do and you have to be there to forfill the hours for the store. there are no benifits and no raises unless you move up and that is seldom, but if you are a good worker the store may recruit you and they usualy make a little more but then your obligated to deal witht customers.
make your own schdule, little supervison
Weather, benefits, pay is ok for the work
