Pros: little management is required
Cons: long drives and weather
Workdays are long consisting of long drives to and from job sites. All work is done outdoors using some hazardous chemicals. The job teaches how to properly identify and control weeds, grasses, and algaes using proper chemical mixes. The job also teaches safe boat and ATV handling. The management is great allowing flexibility in scheduling and training. Time management is judged by the employee and little upper management is involved with trusted employees. Co-workers are all hard working and knowledgeably. The hardest part of the job is dealing with the heat, rain, and other elements of the weather on a daily basis. The most enjoyable part of the job is the amount of freedom that is allowed in making daily decisions on job sites.
