Horrible

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Health and safety is non exisistent, never had a fire drill, no first aid. Staff take 30 min lunch break in a dirty, cold corner of a dangerously stacked stockroom. No training given. Manipulative management who use the name, blame and shame system.Just don't, save your sanity.

Pros

None

Cons

To many to list

Enjoyable and educational

I worked here for 3 summers and 2 Christmas periods. Everyone was kind and helpful and I got on well with the management. There is a wide variety of work and always something to do so the day flew past. Watering, till, plants, xmas trees, building furniture, displays etc. Generally the customers were nice aswell. It's amazing how much you learn in such a short space of time. I didnt think I was interested in plants but I know loads now😁

Pros

Nice atmosphere. Fixed days.

Avoid

I would not recommend working here. Health and Safety is practically non existent, as is training. The management make you feel very uneasy and subsequently there is a high turnover of staff. In short, an awful place to work and to be avoided.

Pros

None

Cons

No rotation on shifts, so if you work a weekend, you always work weekends.

Avoid at all costs

Worked here a few years ago and it was utterly soul destroying, management are horrible treating you like your scum and belittling you to make themselves feel important. If I had the choice between no job and this job I’d pick no job every time.

Pros

None at all

Cons

Horrible management, low pay

Do not apply for a job here

I can’t stress how bad the health and safety is working for this company. I worked here for about 2 years and stupidly thinking it would improve but it got worse. The management is shockingly bad and I would avoid at all costs.

Pros

Customers were nice

Cons

Very cold

Horrid

I would not recommend working here. You are promised full training and are given none, which is embarrassing when customers ask questions. Health and safety is an utter joke and people are always hurting themselves, reporting it and just being told to be more careful, and the incidents never get recorded in an incident book. Extremely high turnover of staff which says it all really. Save yourself the future hassle and AVOID!!!

Pros

Same working days each week, the actual staff are really nice

Cons
