Horrible Place - Milton Store
Sales Representative (Current Employee) – Milton, ON – 2 October 2016
I am a seasonal worker here for years but Recent Store Manager changes have made everyone miserable. She doesn't know how to motivate staff by constantly yelling and degrading people. She treats everyone like garbage often having arguments on the sales floor with staff using 4 letter words that shouldn't be being used. Totally unprofessional lady. Moral in the store is at all times lows due inability to manage effectively. Motivation comes from the top and certainly doesn't here. Amazing how different she is when the owners are "walking" the store. Work Family balance, there isn't one here. You are required to stay after hours on their whim regardless of your personal appointments. Work schedules get changed without knowledge, you being required to work even when they've previously asked your availability.
If you choose to work there you can be rest assured your Department Manager will be awesome. They take a lot of the upper management abuse on their shoulders but still put a brave face on and generally care for their customers and staff. If your going to apply try for the departments of Cash, Perennials or Ponds, Management is great and employees seem generally happy and helpful.
There are better places to work. This place is totally confused in what they are, certainly not a Greenhouse anymore. Their business seems to run on a theory of what ever the "whim of the day is". I won't be returning for another season, need a more positive environment to work in.
Deptmart Managers are Awesome
Long Unscheduled hours, Store Manager, Assistant Store Manager, Lack of direction, Lack of leadership, Too much negativity in Senior management
