Long hours, bad management, unexpected layoffs
It's a good summer job if you like hard work, however, you will work 13 hour shifts during peak time and management doesn't have orders and products organized for orders, so you usually have to stand around and get yelled at for something that is not your fault. Management swears and screams to you while working on the line, again, for products not being pulled and available ahead of time, which is not your duty in the workplace to know or even do for specific orders. The people you work with daily are pretty great because they are working the same long, hard, sweaty hours as you, so you usually have the same work ethic and mindset. However, so many of the workers there will slack off and expect others to pick up the slack and then you all get yelled at for it. They're so passive aggressive with addressing issues within the "order pick team" and instead of confronting the single people involved in issues, they reprimand everyone and nothing changes. Shipments are usually not on time, not enough carts available for orders because you have to walk around the whole greenhouse, hoping you can steal an open cart without being yelled at by someone who can't even understand what you're saying because of language barriers, in order to complete your job. It's a very unorganized greenhouse for sure and people's attitudes' at work are unbareable when you're stuck in 35 degree heat. Swearing, yelling, and name calling. I've worked in 3 greenhouses now and not only is this greenhouse unsafe with their practices (glass falling on the line from the ceiling and people goofing around on equipment, as well as employee cars being damaged within the lot). I have always loved working in greenhouses and don't mind putting in hard work or long hours, but the way you are treated here is unacceptable. The only way you're treated decently here is if you are a family friend to the owners or related to them. People who work hard here DO NOT get positivity, growth or even the possibility to continue to work throughout the season, all that matters here is if you know them personally. Mind you, those same people are the first ones to leave in the middle of the day because they don't want to stay late and put in work, so the rest of us are stuck working 7am to 9pm just to pick up slack caused by poor management and unreliable workers. They randomly will tell you a week before mid-season that they're letting people go, the gossip here is ridiculous and management doesn't confront anything but rather talk to individual people and tell them "they're safe" but say nothing else to other workers, who are the ones who work their butts off and always have positive attitudes and show respect. The rumours circulate for several weeks and sends the workers into a panicked state because, well for me personally, I have school to pay for and need a full time job all the way through till August. They even said in the interview the job was until August but it slows down July and August to 30hours instead of the 45-60 hours you put in the beginning months. I ruined my body at this job trying to prove I was a good enough worker to stay and this workplace only cares about if you report injuries, not even if you're a good worker and still showing up to put in hours when you're hurting. The boss let's every single person go AT THE END of random long hard working days. So for two weeks they let a new person go every day, but were somehow pushing incompetent workers who goof around and disrespect the bosses every day into new positions, just so they could be kept throughout the summer? (again, because they know the owners or someone full time there). Instead of letting people off politely/privately or giving heads up about lay offs, they would let people go after hard, long shifts. Or, in my case, decided to make me work a whole long week watching my hardworking friends be let go, just to make me work a full 12hours Friday and stand around for an hour because management didn't have product ready to go and not tell me my employment status, just to make me come back in Saturday and work for THREE hours because management didn't have product pulled Friday to finish the orders....just to let me go INFRONT OF THE WHOLE CREW. They let every single person go this way and it is so unprofessional. They lie to your face and can't even explain the circumstances, but say it's not their choice and they want you to stay and you're an amazing worker, totally contradicting with what they're saying in comparison to what's going on. Let alone when another worker and I complained to management and wanted to know why we got let go, instead of people who constantly took long lunches, broke equipment and swore and disrespected people, and they couldn't even give a professional response to that. This job IS NOT WORTH THE STRESS, MINIMUM WAGE, LONG HOURS, BODILY HARM OR TIME. I would have stayed at the job all summer and returned again because I loved the hard work and could deal with the negative circumstances from time to time, but the way they deal with their business is incredibly unprofessional and they only care about family friends and money.

summer job
good summer job, hard work with lots of hours, not a lot of pay. the people that you work with are amazing and make it fun, with the culture alone it was enough to stay.

Physically and Mentally Tough
The majority of the people in the company are great to work with, however the job demands physical ability for long hours, lifting, pulling and moving significant amounts of product. In the spring time when the company is at peak, hours are long. In the spring and summer the temperature is high and often stagnant and humid.
