Top tree company in the world
Foreman (Former Employee), MaineJune 25, 2015
Pros: Biggest tree company in the world
Good company to work for. This is where I learned the job of utility line clearance. They keep some of the best equipment in the field and make sure you have the tools to work with. I had a hard butt back in the day train me and am thankful for it because he was very safety oriented and got me where I am today in this profession.

Contracting Tree Work For Power Companys
Foreman/Supervisor (Current Employee), Gulfport, MSApril 15, 2015
Poor place and company to work for in the south. The northern states have union and pay and benefits are better. Very demanding on your body for low pay. Management is very hard to get along with also.

Asplundh
Groundsman Tree-Trimmer (Former Employee), Maggie Valley, NCJanuary 19, 2015
Pros: close to home
Cons: almost 50 to 60 hour weeks sometimes
While working at Asplundh I had a unique experience opportunity to use my skills include clearing brush and grinding. I have worked in the woods for many years before this. I showcase my skills that also include thinking skills to do the job quickly, safely, and without making a mess. We accomplished everything that was needed for what our area needed which had massive damage to the roads and driveways. If I had the chance to work with them again, I would take it.

Day at work!!
Chipper Operator (Former Employee), North Wilkesboro, NCDecember 26, 2014
Pros: getting $1000 bonus after 90 days
Cons: not getting paid for travel
I would start my day at 4am and travel to my work site sometimes I would get to my detestation at 6:30am sometimes 7am. I would drive around until I met my marker on the tree get the brush from the tree and chip it. I learned how to run and work the chipper and also all the safety precautions needed for the job. My co-workers were such enjoyment we did our work but yet got to pick and play. The hardest part of this job for me would be transporting the brush my hand to the chipper. The most enjoyable part would be the traveling.

As close to slave labor as it gets
Groundsman (Former Employee), arkansasNovember 3, 2014
Pros: you get a paycheck
Cons: you will be the scum of the earth
I worked monday through thursday and stayed in a hotel during this time. They do not allow you to drink alcohol or energy drinks during the whole time. That threw up a red flag for me.

Pay is extremely low and for 10 an hour you will work somedays harder than 99% of the population has ever worked. Your arms will be cut up from gathering trees. You will be tired and they will tell you to work harder.

Very unsafe place to work. Not only are the work conditions extremely hazardous but the people who drive their vehicles are a bunch of idiots.

Management is poor and benefits are non existent. .

Not a place you would want to work.
A Trimmer (Former Employee), OhioMay 30, 2014
Cons: everything
Not a very good work experience. I learned that at that company they were unwilling to work with their employees. I was required to drive sometimes 2 hours away with short notice and when I asked why I was the only employee required to drive that far they were not willing to give me a fair answer or try to help in the problem.

Good working Conditions
Apprentice (Former Employee), NJMarch 10, 2014
Pros: n/a
Cons: n/a
A typical day at work was chipping brush and removing tree's away from the electricity lines. We were always reminded about safety everyday because of the Dangerous working conditions management was very focused on safety issues. Co-workers were great and always worked as a team. The hardest part of the job was the heavy lifting and the heat during the summer months and the most enjoyable time of the day was when we were finished after working 10 hours a day.

Productive and safe enviornment overseeing ans trimming trees.
Tree Trimmer (Current Employee), Glouster, OHDecember 30, 2013
Pros: enjoying the outdoors.
Cons: some wrong priorities of upper gf's
When I report to work everyday we go over all safety regulations for our job. Work on filling out our paperwork for the day for our crews, check all equipment on trucks, find out which site we are gonna be working in for the day.
When arriving at the site we recheck our equipment set up all necessary safety signs. Look at all the roping and pull backs that need to be done to certain trees, gear up and start climbing to do the job.
When trimming job is finished we chip all wood that needs hauled away.
