General Labourer (Former Employee) –  St. Marys, ONJune 14, 2016
unless you have a degree in biology they will not hire you full time. they will act nice to your face then talk **** behind your back. the work is easy if you don't mind working outside in all types of weather other temps were great but at the end of the day the place is very much like high school your either in good with the full timers or they secretly hate you and will tell the boss they don't like you
Pros
good team (temps), fresh air, gained knowledge
Cons
you are just a temp you do as your told

tech (Former Employee) –  canadaMay 30, 2013
Should have a warning label: Buyer beware.
Overall environment is friendly BUT it lacks competent management. A stepping stone but doesn't hold a lot of future opportunities.
Pros
free food occasionally
Cons
unreasonable demands

Research and development (Former Employee) –  Blenheim, ONJanuary 1, 2013
The boss would always be the first to work, and the coffee would be brewing. Everyone is welcoming and happy to be at work. We start the day before heading out to the research fields by doing a checklist of what we are going to be bringing with us. It is important that we also know who is coming out to the fields so we ensure everyone makes it back to the office safely later in the day. We all load up in the work trucks with the days water supply and tools that we will need. When we get there, we weed the areas of any new weeds to ensure our pollination goes properly. I would try to assign an area to each employee and we would work together to get the job done. We use a method called Line-Of-Fire and it keeps your hoe in-front of you so that no injuries are incurred on site. The hardest part of the job is the heat of the sun and the humidity. We dress in weather sensitive attire that helps move cool air through your shirt however it still protects all skin from the UV rays. The most enjoyable part of the job is the rewarding feeling when you put in hard work and have a finished product or properly pollinated section of corn. When management will not listen to your inquiries for safety concerns it is frustrating.
Pros
teamwork
Cons
extreme humidity
