A Day in the Life of Armstrong Employees


Hello, I'm Rachel. I'm the assistant manager at Armstrong Garden Centers in Tustin. A typical day here involves communicating with our associates to make sure that not only their goals but the store's goals are reached on a daily basis and that includes and features the importance of helping our guests succeed in their gardening. My favorite part about working at Armstrong Garden Centers is meeting all different types of people that have shared connections with plants. I feel like everyone to a varying degrees has some sort of relationship with nature and with plants and it's really cool to bring people together and connect on that level. Also the plants we have really cool variety we bring in every day, every week, every season and just seeing that really cool turn around learning so much everyday is what makes working here very special.
