Broad acres open (Current Employee) – Las Vegas, NV – September 3, 2016
I work with a great people. I enjoy going to at sun rise to great the staff , then head off in my cart to inspect the property of any water leaks, standing water, public destruction IE graffiti, any damage to trees and shrubs. The day goes by quick, there is never a shortage of things to address, IE tree trimming hedge trimming , irrigation issues, removal of weeds etc. Before I know it, it's time to clock out. It's often funny that my co-workers have to remind me to clock out.
Great high energy environment with very good people.

Laborer (Former Employee) – Greeley, CO – June 10, 2015
I worked at Wise Acres Nursery doing all sorts of stuff. I did what my supervisor told me to. I learned how to garden and I learned that I am good at it and I like it. the hardest part of the job was pulling weeds, but I felt good at the end of the day cause I had worked hard. I really want to get a job with a landscaping or lawn maintenance type company.
Great learning experience and worked with some nice people.
Legal Secretary/Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) – Douglas, WA – May 30, 2015
I was hired into the Healthcare Litigation Group because I had a medical background. The group practice had six people in it and it turned out to be a very busy practice working with various contracted Providers. I transcribed depositions, set up and organized clients and chron files. I did a lot of filing. We moved four times in 31/2 years in the same building then we moved to another area further into Washinton, D.C. I also worked in other various practices such as government contracts and communications. I worked very hard and learned a great deal of experience while I was there.
Good money and benefits. nice people to work with.
Foreman (Former Employee) – Oldsmar, FL – April 30, 2015
You travel all over the country with no time table to schedule personal errands. There is no compensation for travel, you spend months on the road with no holiday pay and expected to work on the holidays also. We receive enough hours for food and minimal bills. I usually pay at least one bill late every month. Not allowed to use company vehicles for personal use, will take money from paycheck. Not paid for work off the job site, you will fight, complain and lose track of missing hours before check is fixed. Will not receive pay raises for the skills or certs. learned on the job or in classroom. Not a place for long term employment, but if you need a job they hire anybody. I found another job, properly put my notice in with the company and was transitioning to my new job and the owner called the new company complaining about a conflict of interest preventing me from being employed. This seems to happen to allot of the employees that try to better themselves, this company does not give any good references and has called companies of my coworkers and harassed them even 6 months of not being on their payroll.
Laborer (Former Employee) – Belfast, VA – April 29, 2015
a typical day at work involved flagging. I learned to be aware of people and traffic the management was ok the co-workers where good people and easy to get along with. the hardest part was the low pay. the most enjoyable part was the people.
Family owned and operated, open door policy, management was wonderful
Sr. Credit and Collections Analyst (Former Employee) – Columbus, Ohio 43204 – February 17, 2015
In my years at Gardner I grew as an employee and a person. Not only did I experience and learn a lot I was blessed to work in an environment that allowed me to implement new policy and watch the company flourish, for that I feel blessed to have been part of that experience and know I contributed.
I was very undecided to leave; however I am seeking a position that will allow me to grow and advance in the management arena.
Work out facility, excellent staff, family owned and operated
Private Secretary/ Paralegal (Former Employee) – Seattle, WA – December 15, 2014
Worked for the senior partners, great boss, was patient, appreciative and supportive.
Is a very good place to work, always tried to help the clients, always wanted the best for the clients, and made one proud to work there.
Had employee appreciation day once a month, recognized someone for what they did; always was doing nice things for the employees. Unfortunately, the office manager, drank a lot, and after a while was found out , she jeopardized a lot of jobs for a lot of people.
Paid well, nice lunches for the employees and good attorneys
company driver (Former Employee) – Albany, OR – November 8, 2014
I left a good OTR driving job because I wanted to have more time at home. I interviewed with Gardner for a local job, and I was offered a local job. After orientation, they put me into a regional position. I requested the job I had been offered, and was told I would not be put into that position because the manager didn't trust his other drivers to do the regional work. If I had known what I was getting into, I would never have accepted the job.
14-16 hour days, Management wanted us to fudge on the logbooks to get more miles in each day
