disposable employees
Driver/ Production worker (Former Employee) –  Cocoa, FL 32926January 19, 2017
Working for this company was over all very difficult at times because of pressure they put on us to make distribution for each day and when it came to needing a day off to go to the doctor or sick unwell we're just disposable employees

Outdated work enviornment
Employee (Former Employee) –  Willow Grove, PAJanuary 3, 2017
Everyone in this work environment is friendly. There are a number of employees who have been here for a long time and remember older practices and people in different departments. Many of the ways of operation are outdated and ineffective.

The job is very physical and fun but the company is poorly managed.
Trimmer (Current Employee) –  New MexicoSeptember 29, 2016
The job itself is very physical and you should expect scratches and bruises while working in a hazardous and life-threatening environments on a daily basis. I enjoy the job, however, the politics and low pay for how much physical work you do alongside management publicly harassing is not worth it. Employment appreciation does not exist, I talked to a 10+ year employee recently who has not received anything for his years of service to the company. The ground level management is severely overworked, pressured to discipline employees and push for production which begs the question. Safety First?
Pros
Guaranteed 40 hours weeks. Insurance and 401k.
Cons
Expect to pay for tools, expect to donate personal unpaid time to the company, management from all levels are underpaid and severely overworked, management have quotas to discipline employees

Worst tree company that intentionally butchers trees to slowly kill them
Lead climber, trimmer (Former Employee) –  Dayville, CTMarch 19, 2016
Possibly the worst place I've ever worked. With the exception of the rare few, all the foremen and general foremen are uneducated short tempered high school drop outs who have no business being involved in the care of trees. With commutes, expect to spend an average of 14 hours a day working or commuting and keep in mind only 9 hours are paid. Benefits are terrible and their provider will retract payments resulting in you footing the bill should a health crisis arise. Lastly, being shot at for trespassing is potentially an everyday occurrence.
Pros
None
Cons
Management, benefits, commute, wages, moral, training, management knowledge of the field

New Skills and Places
Groundsman/Specialized Equipment Operator (Former Employee) –  Covington, LAJanuary 20, 2016
Fun place to work with good people training you on power saws and techniques to use them. Dangerous work and the pay just doesn't compensate you for the risks you take day to day.
Pros
Fun work and learning new skills
Cons
Pay isn't worth the risk and no real chance to advance

Great Place to Work
Billing Technician (Current Employee) –  Willow Grove, PASeptember 23, 2015
Asplundh is a great placed to be. They offer great insurance and have great employees. I love doing my job, Billing Specialist. I am able to multitask, and be apart of a great customer service orientated profession. I am able to handle stressful deadlines and have gained a renewed commitment to getting things done by being apart of a team driven environment. I would recommend anyone to have the same experiences that i have gained by being an employee here. The commute has proven to be a challenge for me and now I must turn my attentions closer to home.
Pros
Kind and professional employees
Cons
Traveled out of State

Tree Removal
Groundsman (Former Employee) –  Sioux Falls, SDMarch 26, 2015
Tree Removal is fairly straight forward. A good few guys around to work with. Safety is always the way to go. Stuck out in the middle of nowhere most if not all of your day. Breaks are a good little pause throughout the day.
Pros
Pay, Benefits
Cons
No reimbursement for travel, No flexibility
