Enjoyable and relaxed Workplace
A typical days work would involve checking the garden centre is safe for staff and customers, serving customers and offering the highest possible standards in customer service, Checking off deliveries and merchandising stock,
I have learnt several important factors regarding different aspects of horticulture, refund policies and health and safety legislation,
The management are on hand at all times to deal with unexpected problems and to authorise special requests such as discounts and special deliveries, working with colleagues is always a pleasure as they are all friendly and very supportive of each other.
The hardest part of the job is to get all your tasks completed, before the store gets to busy with customers, the most enjoyable part of the job is if your lucky enough to have the responsibility of order is to choose new ranges of stock, and actually taking delivery and learning about the new products.
