Production Worker (Former Employee) – Leamington, ON – 23 October 2018
Typical day here consisted of drama, lack of communication, not a lot of training, you are tossed out to a job you might of been hired for or a totally different one if they need your help. You make a lot of good friends here. Hardest part about the job was standing all day in the same spot. The most enjoyable part was being able to move around. I learned a lot from the assistant growers/growers, whom are all amazing at their work.
By yourself most of the time
Long hours, low wages, long wait for benefits, no communication, management
Greenhouse Worker (Former Employee) – Leamington, ON – 4 April 2019
Smells strongly of cannabis. It will stick to your clothes, along with the hundreds of ladybugs. It is honest work, however, and satisfying returning home at 5 pm when you know you have done your job and can rest for the evening. Workplace culture is rather kind, it seems working so hard together bonds you. The hardest part is the heat, but the best part is the relief you feel knowing you worked hard and your day is done.
