Friendly co-workers generally, decent work environment
General Labourer (Former Employee) –  Waterdown, ONMarch 19, 2015
They had their general labour workers doing 12 hours per day 5 days per week and 10 hours on Saturday doing intense labour. Hiring more staff would have made the experience a lot better. Everyone I worked with seemed to have something bad to say about people above them. My co-workers were friendly and good sense of humour making the long days a lot easier. A lot of people came and went in the management due to disagreements. I enjoyed working there on the good days but overall the experience was average at best.
Pros
friendly environment
Cons
long hours

Fun filled workplace.
General Labourer (Former Employee) –  Bayside, ONOctober 11, 2012
Typical day:
Hauled plants out to cars for customers,
Swept pathway leading into the store,
Kept the nursery clean,
Labeled plants,

I was always learning everything, from how to label plants to how to stock plants, including spacing them perfectly.
Most enjoyable part of the job was hearing how happy my one co-worker was.
Hardest part was working for my parents.
