Very unorganized and is stressful
Majority of the coworkers are great, very nice guys!
Management however is unorganized, goes alot by hear say and not actual facts, likes to tell and scream, curse and swear when anything is wrong! Cant handle stress load!

Good place to work
Awesome place to work. Only thing I would say is a lot of the upper management they hire is not qualified for the position their in. Also dont like taking any suggestions from lower/ blue collar workers who know how the maintenance shop operates and a day to day basis.

Not the best to work for and low salary.
Not the best place to work unless you live in Burlington or close by or willing to travel distance to work. Pay is not competitive with other places.

Run! Run fast Run hard away!
Left hand doesn't know what the right is doing.
Head dispatcher is a control freak.

Nothing can be done without his approval. Which isn't right.

Upper management doesn't have a clue either, they just turn a blind eye to all the wrong doings going on in the office. Repairs? Yeah what a joke!

This is a great seasonal job for people looking to work for the summer months. You meet lots of farmers and learn a lot about the agri services including fertilizers, growing and harvesting.
Pros
Meeting lots of people

Long, unpredictable hours

My year with Sylvite
A typical day was in the office, greeting customers and assisting as required.
I learnt a lot about agriculture and the farmers in my area.

Management and co-workers were great to get along with until the busy spring rush.

The hardest part of my time with Sylvite was moving onto Henkels and McCoy after being offered a great job in my educational background.

The most enjoyable part was being able to drive the country roads, delivering fertilizer and crop protection to the local farmers.
