Good for young people looking for a short term job
Department Manager (Former Employee) –  Hamilton, ONFebruary 20, 2016
Not a well managed company, they can't make up their collective minds on anything! If they make a mistake it doesn't matter but if one of the workers make a mistake its the end of the world. Good place for kids moving on to college or high school. Not a good place for anyone trying to make a living.
Pros
Filtered drinking water
Cons
Long hours, unorganized

Department Manager- Perennials (Former Employee) –  Milton, ONJanuary 11, 2013
The store manager and the regional managers were very enthusiastic and supportive. Assistant managers were hit and miss depending on the personality of the individuals but this can happen anywhere.
Working outside obviously had its pros and cons with the weather.

I loved being there in the morning with the plants before it got really busy and the heat came on.

All employees are treated as seasonal workers as far as holiday pay etc is concerned even full time, they work all holidays especially during busy season.

Department and store managers are employed permanent full time, year round, but department managers are asked upon hiring to sign agreement to work overtime during busy season but not get paid time and a half.

Employees are required to buy their own shirt (not very hot weather friendly shirt) for $30 plus buy all your work gloves, pruning tools and work boots. I found this excessive financial burden for the seasonal minimum wage employees.
Pros
working with plants
Cons
working all holidays and weekends- usual retail hours
