My Experience
Propagation Manager (Current Employee) –  Norval, ON8 May 2018
Decent place to work but not without its flaws, just like any other workplace. Your experience depends on the department you work in. Employees are treated very differently between the 'sections' of the company (i.e. Office, Farm, Store).
Pros
Variety
Cons
Pay

harder than it appears
Sales and Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) –  Scarborough, ON5 April 2018
Pleasant atmosphere for seasonal spring and summer employment, flowers blooming everyone excited to get outdoors. Staff were friendly and helpful with one another. Management seemed disconnected and very impersonal offering little incentive for dedication or loyalty at minimum wage.
Pros
learned a lot from the professional horticulturists
Cons
Physically demanding, long hours on your feet.

If you love Gardening this is the place for you.
Assistant Manager (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON3 February 2018
Overall Sheridan Nurseries is a good place to work.
You are expected to work hard and follow the corporate program.
It is a demanding job regardless of position. They do advance from inside so there is opportunity for growth.
Most people, both store staff and Guests are fun to deal with as everyone shares a love of gardening.
Pros
Opportunity for growth.
Cons
Long, demanding hours.

Fun, full of variety, but no room for advancement.
Night Shift Supervisor (Current Employee) –  Markham, ON2 November 2017
There's no such thing as a typical day at Sheridan. There's always something new, which forces you to learn many new things. The job culture is great; it's like a big family. For seasonal jobs, there is high turnover. Practically no room for advancement into permanent positions.

LOVED working here
Nursery Supervisor (Former Employee) –  Markham, ON9 June 2017
Working for Sheridan was some of the best years of my life. had the location I worked at not closed I like to think I would still be there. Generally speaking the management was great, the pay was fair and the hours are good. They had high expectations in terms of sales but they provided the tools to achieve them. I miss working here.
Pros
Fresh air and sunshine.
Cons
Seasonal employment. Little winter work.

Great job for learning
Cashier (Former Employee) –  scarborough9 April 2017
Really fun and changing atmosphere- you learn a lot, they hire students, great for a first job or for those passionate for plants. It is very professional though, you have to take it seriously! really nice and caring staff, and really interesting and beautiful stuff for sale. cons- too many genetically modified plants but they do sell organic. there is also pressure to recommend certain brand name products that are not natural or necessary to be putting in the earth, and this is the biggest ethical con. it would be nice for a them to be a truly green and eco-friendly company as they somewhat appear, but their efforts to do so lack integrity and purpose. They do have a wonderful bio-pond that saves tons of water every year watering the plants, however the company seems to care more for their profit in the long run than their footprint on the earth.
Pros
plants everywhere, sunlight, healthy and lively and FUN
Cons
they make you push sales for their brand, extreme weather in winter/summer, seasonal based hours

Beautiful place to work
Nursery Sales Associate (Current Employee) –  Kitchener, ON4 July 2016
Overall Sheridan provides good work experience. There is a beautiful atmosphere and an excellent selection for guests. I have learned a large amount of information regarding plant identification and care. I enjoy my time spent working with my co-workers. The hardest part of the job are the strenuous conditions. As an outside job, the experience is only as good as the weather. The management is stressful to deal with worker needs, but all provide a high level of product knowledge. The most enjoyable part of the job is working in the nursery watering the shrubs and trees.
Pros
employee discount
Cons
strenuous conditions

Great people, though it is hard work
Guest Service Agent (Former Employee) –  Mississauga, ON28 June 2016
Generally a very good place to work, though the people are what make the place. If you have a good lot of people that year, it can be very enjoyable, but there are people who make the experience potentially worse. Overall in my experience it has been great.
