Employment Opportunities

Thank you for your interest in employment opportunities at Ego's!

We are a family-owned and operated garden centre, nursery and farm market operating since 1975 in beautiful Oro-Medonte.  

Our team members take great pride in offering our customers a unique and enjoyable experience.

Our staff are friendly, knowledgable, passionate about plants, people & food, and enjoy working in a fast paced environment.

If you think you would be a good candidate to join our team this season, here are a few things you should know...

  • All our positions require movement on your feet (standing and walking) as well as repeated bending and lifting.
  • We work in a range of weather conditions... sunny, rainy, hot and cold days... so a tolerance of working in a variety of environments is a must.
  • Our garden centre and nursery is open 7 days per week with Friday, Saturday and Sunday being our busiest days so the ability to work weekends is mandatory.
  • We are located in a rural area with no public transportation so a reliable means of getting to work is essential.
