Nice place to work and learn, Bad Place to make a living
Pool Attendant (Former Employee) –  Morris, CTApril 18, 2018
All in all pleasant place to work , a good camaraderie among the workers which is what makes it a nice place work, but if they were to leave there would not be much attracting potential employees besides , the plants and a chance to learn more in the horticultural field . White flower farm pays below industry standard for those who posses an applicators license and in fact may drag you along minimum wage or two dollars over for several years in hopes that you’ll just keep doing your job . They will tell you there is not a lot of money to be made with plants and for this reason they offer this wage but in reality just one of their dozens of green houses is worth hundreds of thousands of dollars in plants. To sum it up great people to work with management very understanding and kind , however no money or growth here unless your referring to the plants
Pros
Lots of PTO Work Environment
Cons
Pay, Poor healthcare and benefits Only contribute towards HSA

Low pay requiring lots of experience and knowledge
Propagation/greenhouse management (Former Employee) –  Litchfield, CTJuly 5, 2017
Organized facilities and well run.
Top horticulture environment.
Management was shady, protecting their own situations. Regular staff was made to feel and stay that way.
Little to no wage/profit share or salary increases.
Eventually staffed with migrant workers, displacing many local citizens.

Great folks but....
Customer Service Agent (Former Employee) –  Torrington, CTFebruary 22, 2014
Mary Bekaski and Diane White are wonderful supervisors. But it is a minimum wage job with no chance for advancement nor pay wage increase no matter how well you do your job. You'll get all the flowers you want at the end of the season which is absolutely wonderful but you can't feed your family on picked over flowers.
Pros
Wonderful people to work with
Cons
Minimum wage job
