Pros: Free lunches, student vehicles, competitive pay, excellent supervisors, advancement of knowledge of weeds and chemicals
Cons: Sometimes longer hours
-We worked outside most days, weather permitting. Duties included seed set up, seeding, plot tending, spraying, harvest and managing casual laborers.
-My supervisors were excellent. They never made students do something they themselves weren't willing to help with, even minor tasks like weeding plots.
-Time management was quickly acquired. Due to the nature of the job, the hours were long.
-Vehicles and lunches were provided on top of salary, which was a huge bonus.
