lacking good management
Vineyard Foreman (Former Employee) –  Kamloops, BC2 November 2018
Your job will or can be replaced by foreigners the next season for lower wages on a whim. The owner doesn't even care about the people he hires from his own country. everyone is expendable. The good news is no one will ever say anything face to face it will all be planned out behind your back. They may also employ people who will stalk you, if your a girl, in the vineyard. I would look somewhere else for work unless you don't care about yourself or how others can take advantage of you. definitely a last resort option for work. Make sure you have a good lawyer if you plan on working here.
Pros
wine tastings, fresh air
Cons
bad management, unrealistic expectations.

Foreman (Former Employee) –  Kamloops, BC12 November 2017
The vineyard workers put in 8-10 hours daily. Working outdoors everyday (rain or shine/ year-round), doing everything from planting to harvesting. During my time at Monte Creek (over a year) I was given added responsibilities and asked to work extra hours. As a Foreman I had my own crew, many acres of vineyard to manage, and working an average of fifty hours weekly. However, the company was reluctant to give me a raise for this increase in responsibility and hours. I was given a raise months after being tasked with the role of Foreman ($17/ hour while the previous foreman started at $18/ hour). When I finally quit, the company offered me the same job again for $24/ hour. They would have happily underpaid me for years if I had allowed them. I'm glad I didn't go back.
Pros
Beautiful location
Cons
Underpaid, overworked
