FT seasonal job
Delivery Driver (truck) - FT seasonal (Former Employee) –  Waterdown, ONOctober 13, 2015
Nice, physical, busy job delivering plants, trees and soils/mulches in the Greater Toronto area.

The added "bonus" of working hard, outside during a beautiful summer and positive customer interaction afforded me ample opportunity to serve both the requirements of prompt courteous service to both the company and customers.

The co-workers and atmosphere on the job were excellent motivators to do the job effciently and courteously.
Pros
It was a beautiful summer and working outside was healthy and rewarding, particularly the customer service component was very gratifying.
Cons
It was only seasonal....

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.
