Hard but Relaxed place to work
General Labourer (Current Employee) –  Etobicoke, ON29 April 2019
Team is very nice and welcoming, typical day is hard labour, and can't be afraid to get your hands dirty. 1-2 breaks are guranteed depending on hours worked. Salary is minimum, and managers are very kind.

Great Staff, Hard Work
N/A (Former Employee) –  Not available11 March 2019
Very busy and fun, passionate staff. Much knowledge needed of the industry for sales floor positions as client base is demanding. Physically and mentally demanding. Hardest part of the job is a lack of training and recognition. Most enjoyable part of the job are the people you work with - they are dedicated, passionate, hard working, the backbone of this company.

Carryout/ Guest Services (Former Employee) –  Markham, ON23 February 2019
The assistant manager does not demonstrate any understanding of socially appropriate behavior and acts out emotionally far too often. This made it difficult to work as I was being harassed by the assistant manager regularly while doing my job properly, and to the best of my ability as I suffered a long-term work injury due to a lack of proper training.
Pros
Great coworkers and work environment
Cons
Poor management

Cashier
Seasonal Cashier (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON30 January 2019
Being a seasonal cashier I wasn't at the store for a long period of time but while I was there I was never disappointed by any of the other staff's attitudes. My job was simple and it was nice being able to connect with the customers. Being a cashier during Christmas it was busy on the weekends which made the days go by fast. The only downside to working in the winter was the cold temperatures which were hard to face.
Pros
Environment
Cons
Cold in the winter

Very hard working fast paced environment
Guest Services Representative (Former Employee) –  Markham, ON10 January 2019
Lots of heavy lifting.Obtain a lot of plant knowledge just by listening to guests who have issues with plants and having one of our specialists answer their issues. Great managers, very flexible with hours, very concerned about how the employees are treated. You will gain a close knit family working here. Hardest part of the job would be being able to stay busy, but not get overloaded. Most of the times there will be a long list of things to do and it's easy to get side tracked. The most enjoyable thing is the people, they become a family.
Pros
Annual company dinners, product knowledge training, loving people
Cons
Can get busy with tasks

Guest Service & Nursery Staff (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON2 January 2019
If you are looking for some fairly stress free seasonal labour this would be the place. It pays what you would expect it to. Management is great, fair, and easy to get along with. Take the job and responsibilities seriously and you'll do just fine. Great place to work during the spring.
Pros
Work environment, people, labour if you like that
Cons
Can get hectic

poorly managed
Point of sale assistant (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON18 December 2018
not a healthy work environment for anyone. maximizes profits over employees. management doesn't feel fit to pay people what they are worth and turnover is high because of it. many people leave to work for competitors.
Pros
working with plants
Cons
long shifts, seasonal employment, part time no benefits

Productive & Laid Back Work
Farm Laborer (Summer Employment) (Former Employee) –  Norval, ON4 November 2018
Sheridan nurseries was an excellent place to work. Management was always great and it was nice to work outdoors frequently. For many people this will only be a seasonal job for base pay. The job culture is excellent and everyone working here was pleasant and helpful. It is important to note that because the summer is their busiest season, laborers should expect to be working long days sometimes up to and occasionally beyond 12 hours. You will earn every dollar you make working here but that is not a bad thing.

So many plants!
Seasonal Plant Sales (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON17 September 2018
Sheridan Nurseries was an awesome place to work. I was in the annual plant sales section and learned so much about plants in such a short time. It was so much fun because it was all university students, so I also made some great new friendships!

CASHIER (Former Employee) –  Kitchener, ON27 July 2018
Clean the sotre, cash out guests, place plants on the shalves.

Amazing job culture, good and positive guests and employees.

Having various tasks through out a shift was nice because it did not give you a chance to get bored.

The hardest part of the job was dealing with a large amount of customers on weekends.
Pros
Working with plants and flowers
Cons
Long hours on your feet walking longer distance in consequence of the store being fairly large.
