A friend provided me with an opportunity to try working in landscaping to see if this would be something I would enjoy.
Landscape Labourer (Former Employee) –  Pickering, ON20 September 2017
Worked in landscaping proving gardening jobs such as cutting the grass, trimming flowers and edging during the summer and spring. During the winter did snow removal. This was a part-time opportunity to provide me with a different experience to help me make a decision if this is something I would consider as a career.
Pros
Enjoyed the friendship and new experience
Cons
Extremely long hours mostly in the winter storm season

Working at The Gardener is a hard working, but fun job!
Snow Removal (Current Employee) –  Orono, ON2 March 2015
A typical day working for The Gardener was very hard working. All the employees will help you if you need it, make sure you get everything done, and just overall a really good environment.
The management for The Gardener is very easy going, but knows how to get you to get everything done. The co-workers are excellent people; very easy going. The hardest part of the job itself would be the physical part; shoveling snow. The most enjoyable part of the job is knowing you're coming into a friendly environment and having a well-paid job.
Pros
well-paid job, good environment.
Cons
very hard working.
