Not Worth It.
Landscape Laborer (Former Employee) –  Ontario21 September 2018
Ill keep this short and right to the point.
- Super long work days from 6:30 AM to anywhere between 6-8 PM.
- Only have one for sure day off per week (Sunday)
- Terrible pay (just barely over minimal wage) especially for the amount of work your expected to do and the physical aspect.
- Back breaking work where back and joint issues are bound to happen, on top of that they provide no benefits........
- Contract work so job security is none existent.
- Only positive is the guys that your out at the work site with are great and down to earth working class people.
- Just a side note landscaping work is terrible anyways you should just avoid it all together, find something else that you wont break your back over and get paid more then a person flipping burgers.
Pros
Lots of hours if your into that, coworkers are great
Cons
Basically everything

Launch???

Any employee that spells lunch incorrectly should not be paid for it. Most companies do not pay for your "launch". Good luck on your future endeavors...

Crew Leader (Former Employee) –  Vaughan, ON4 February 2013
a typical day at work with this company was an average of 14-16 hour days arriving at the shop for 630 am and being down in Vaughan cutting boulevards for the city till about 7 or 8 pm almost every night for minimal 6-7 days a week. There was 2 weeks where we had to work straight monday to sundays. 14 hr days easily.

I was a crew leader with this company for the first bit i really enjoyed the work and the people but when you get promoted and drive a pick-up with a crew of people and a trailer full of equipment and ask for a 2$ raise and had been told you will get it NUMEROUS times... i requested it for the last time still got no response... (keep in mind i was driving a veryyyy unstable vehicle, the gearswitch was held together by a twist-tie by a employee while i was on the road.) had to drive the truck back to the shop in Holland Landing from Vaughan.

So i had no choice but to lay down my keys and give it up.
Pros
none.
Cons
no life outside work
