Productive and Straightforward Workplace
Part-time employee (Former Employee) – Cornwall, ON – 29 May 2017
Working in the Seasonal department was enjoyable and straightforward. The inventory and aisle layouts changed from season to season which always kept thing relatively fresh. The locations of items typically changed from year to year as well.
There were times when customer demands threatened to overwhelm employees, and times in which there were few customers at all. Managers always seemed to properly gauge customer interests and were prepared to deal with them.
I learned a lot about time management and efficiency.
The Garden Centre was always busy in the spring due to organizing shipment after shipment of plants, filling numerous shelves, and customers. The summer saw the department die down in activity unless a major shipment arrived or there was a big holiday sale. The manager was very well organized, patient, and an extremely fast worker.
Free water for garden centre eployees, forklift training, polite colleagues, good shift hours
Those customers that were irate, impatient, and overly demanding
