Great people to work for

Since starting everyone has been really helpful the job itself is not very stressful salary is a livable wage and the people that own the place are great they do a lot of charity work and they are actually producing things in Ontario.

Pros

They do a lot of extras for holidays etc for employees

Cons

Sometimes long hours but in this economy you need them

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 -

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.

Pros

Great Co-Workers

Cons

Long, Hot Hours in Peak Season

Great place to work!

I was always respected by everyone there. Great atmosphere! Loved driving for them! Every summer they had a "driver's lunch" for all us drivers to show their appreciation for the work we did. I really thought that was awesome, And a really nice thing to do.

Pros

Great trucks, lots of trips all over Ontario

Cons

Downtown Toronto at rush hour

Dead End Job

-HR department is competent and friendly - Individuals in Operations/Conveyor Belt Line need attitude adjustments especially if they intend to train new employees -- Learn to conform here because it is a family owned business (Fake it till you make it) - Be wary of Line Supervisor - Recommended to wear masks; not the best breathing environment working as a laborer

Pros

Clean Break Room

Cons

Dirty breathing air during clean-up / No Over Time+No Time&half

Excellent staff, Long Hours, Very Little Pay!! and Inadequate Trucks!

Loved the job and the long hours and long distances. Staff were very helpfull and friendly. the pay was very very low for the amount of work expected of drivers and the vehicles supplied were very underpowered and in poor condition! they were rental trucks and not meant for the work we were doing with them. Also, it was a seasonal temporary position that lasted two months so potential for advancement in company isn't there and no job security. Overall Great place to work!! But they need to pay what the drivers deserve if they expect great drivers and want us to return following season.

Cons

Inadequate equipment for job being performed
