Volunteer work.
Dr. Deirdre Lawson, MD (Current Employee), Albany, GAJune 24, 2015
Pros: Volunteer work
Cons: Volunteer work
This is only volunteer work for me. I do this for someone who is in my family who is very close to us. A day at work is hard working and doesn't take long at all. I learned how to use our lawn mower while back in 2005. My co-workers are my family. the hardest part about this job is the possible heat and insects. The most enjoyable part of this job is the feeling of doing something good for my family.

mower (Current Employee), Barnesville, GAJune 16, 2015
Pros: free h2o, lunches, flexible hours
Cons: Short breaks, seasonal job
a typical day at work is mowing lawns , picking up any trash ,sticks , levees etc. We cut down trees , branches , its work hard but good exercise for the body. Very productive.
ive learned how to drive a lawn mower, witch might i add also helped me to learn how to drive a car. i know how to keep my yard up when i one day buy a home of my own.
i am a people person , i try to get along with others specially my co-workers. i like to build a good friendship that will turn into a great team that help n work together. working with men can be a bit much but it all works its self out. we respect each other and listen to any ideas the other may have. no conflicts between each other because we are always working.
the manager is outstanding and very understanding , caring. he knows his job well.
what i enjoy most about cutting is the feeling after we've finished and the customer is happy and satisfied with our work.

Pros: Everyone is easy to get along with
Cons: non
Working a 8 hour day maybe more. Working with the co-workers is exciting because they are willing to step in and help out. I was always constantly learning new things everyday. Everyday was something new and exciting, never the same thing. Working year round. I enjoyed working in the snow. The manager was and is easy to get along with.

Routine with weather
Employee (Former Employee), Mount Vernon, OHSeptember 9, 2014
Pros: ride with employer in a/c environment during the summer, help monetarily with foodstuffs
Cons: when work and personal life collided and work-arounds were necessary
A typical day is working the scheduled jobs, paying attention to detail at each house. I learned that the customer is always right and that sometimes the customer can change their mindset based on the worker's experience. Management was workable so long as job and family was separate. Quite rare, actually.

I was the longest-working worker, possibly for my personality meshing the best with the employer. The hardest part of the job was when my rate of work wasn't the same as the employer's. The most enjoyable part of the job was having a satisfied customer day after day.

Lawn Care (Former Employee), FLJuly 26, 2014
Very hot, very trying on one's brain.

Shows me that I will never do physical labor as a job, not worth the cost benefit analysis.

It made me realize it was not worth it with the pain and RA I have developed from it.

Met a ton of great people from the job though. Fellow employees and customers.

Lawn Care Specialist (Former Employee), Decatur, GAJune 1, 2014
My typical day at work consists of cutting grass, hedging the lawn and raking if necessary. Interacting with my customers is a must.
I've learned how to meet clients needs, to be neat and to take my time. I have pride when I work and I enjoy every moment of it.
I enjoy working with my co-workers and we all check on each other to ensure we don't need any help from each other.
The hardest part of my job is the weather at times. The most enjoyable part of my job is to be able to make my own schedule.

Self-Employed (Former Employee), Memphis, TNMay 27, 2014
I worked for myself and by myself, so there was no management or co-workers. There really wasn't a hard part for me. The most enjoyable part of the job was seeing the faces of the people after I finished. And a typical day at work for me was tiring but fun.

learning new things everyday. learned how to cut grass and my supervisor tought me alot of things. how to become a great worker for that particular field and just have fun at what you do. my co workers where great if i didnt know how to do something they helped me. the hardest part of that job was making sure u knew how to shrub. meaning you could not leave any errors on the lawn. the most enjoyable part of the day is looking at the customers smile.in other words knowing that you helped and saved a customer time and money on making sure yu get the job done at the end of the day.

Land scaping (Current Employee), Newnan, GAOctober 3, 2012
Cons: we would have a break every time we drove to a job site.
Get started at 730am loading the truck,leave with 3 guys and cut grass all day.
I got to know different people everyday.
I was in cgarge over my crew of 3 people.
The guys i worked with were hard working.
When we would have to landscape a new yard would be a hard day.
The most enjoyable day would be a custermer telling you how good of a job we have done.
