Technician (Former Employee) – Kyle, TX – February 25, 2014
No one day was ever the same. One day you could be laying pipes and irrigation and the next helping out at a town event or landscaping. Maintained/operated landscaping equipment/tractors, mowers, pressure washers, de-greasers, steam-cleaners. Applied industrial herbicides/pesticides. Excavated & installed irrigation piping. Maintained workshop areas, and landscaping. Management and co-workers both were laid back. Hardest part of the job would either putting up the tents for events or picking up all the trash in the city parks/around the town. The most enjoyable part of the job was working with the people that also worked for the city of Kyle.
i learned alot about landscaping and cleaning.
if you are not careful you could easily hurt yourself or others by accident.
