A great place for someone who likes interacting with people.
Grounds Supervisor (Current Employee), Battle Creek, MichiganJuly 23, 2014
Pros: getting compliments on my work.
Cons: not having enough time to complete a task.
I begin my day by walking the exterior grounds and picking up trash and any other debris that should not be present. Afterward I check flowerbeds for any weeds and remove them. Trimming and cutting trees and bushes with a chainsaw or hedge trimmers, that have grown beyond there normal boundaries is also a part of my job. I work closely with management – more... who communicates to me any needed grounds attention. because I am the Grounds Supervisor, it is my responsibility to give other employees a detail description of what work needs to be completed and ensure the it meets all requirements. The hardest part of the job is deciding what work should be done first. When I am unsure I check with my immediate supervisor. The most enjoyable part is getting the opportunity to speak with the residents and receiving their feedback on my work. – less

Fun Job, bad management and terrible pay
Maintenance Crew (Former Employee), Roosevelt, UTJuly 20, 2014
Loved working at the Golf Course, the work was rewarding and I enjoyed being outside and getting to golf for free. Half the time my boss was never to be found and we werent sure what exactly needed to be done. So for the most part we would just take it into our own hands and try to do what we thought needed done, but would always eventually get chewed – more... out for all of my bosses own problems, he eventually got fired but working for him was an absolute joke. – less

Field work /government contractor (Former Employee), Selma, ALNovember 18, 2013
Pros: bonus, overtime
Cons: weather conditions
A typical day at work would consist of learning how to work well with others. At work you will learn strong leadership skills and how to work as a team. One of the best things about the job is the experience you will receive using equipment. Make sure everyone is enjoying their job and don't mind completing a task. The hardest part of the job really – more... is just whatever you make it because the work is fairly easy. Working with heavy duty equipment is probably the best thing about working in grounds maintenance. – less
