Fun and very productive workplace where excellence is key.
Pros: 8 hour days, done by 3:15 so i had the entire afternoon to do what i wanted.
Cons: picking up co-workers slack
During the summer months the day starts at 6:45 a.m. and goes until 3:15 p.m. Over the course of the job I learned the importance of taking pride in your work, and also general maintenance both with lawn care and with the equipment we used to perform the lawn maintenance. Management was excellent, my supervisor in particular made the job very easy, explaining the tasks to be performed thoroughly before each work day started. My co-workers I felt were sometimes a little lazy and I had to pick up the slack quite often, but I didn't mind that as long as the job got done. The work they did do however, was quality work. The hardest part of the job was probably sodding; the process of cutting, rolling, moving, and replanting the sod was a very tedious and strenuous job, especially on a hot summer's day. The most enjoyable part of the job was the fun we had during the course of the job. Although it was a lot of physical work, the group dynamics brought to the table by everyone made for an enjoyable work day.
