Solid place to work
Market Account Manager (Former Employee), Columbus, OhioSeptember 1, 2015
Pros: Industry Knowledge, Equipment, Support
Cons: Structure, Travel
The systems and structure could use some work, but overall a great experience. Upper management are doing what they can for field personnel, but sometimes don't understand the differences in locations and climate. The types of people and the way people interact varies in different parts of the country.

Productive and Active Work Place
Landscaper (Former Employee), Upper Marlboro, MDAugust 3, 2015
Pros: Able to gain a ton of experience in landscaping and gardening
Cons: work is not consistent
We would meet to be assigned a route to which we had to perform landscaping task. The supervisor would assign teams to collectively get the work done in a reasonable amount of time. My co workers were fantastic to work with because I learned things from them as I taught them different skills as well. We worked as a family. The hardest part of the job would be working in heat advisory weather while the most enjoyable part would be travelling.

Hard Work Low Pay
Crew/Landscaper (Current Employee), Marlboro, NJAugust 2, 2015
Pros: Plenty of hours
Cons: Very low pay, No benefits, Seasonal Employment
Typical day at Brickman starts at 7am and ends at 6pm. Extremely hard work and very fast paced. Terribly low pay and no benefits what so ever. Very little to no chance of advancement or pay increase. what you would call a "Dead End Job" Do not expect to make a career out of emplyment with The Brickman Group.

laborer (Former Employee), Austin, TXJune 26, 2015
Pros: hour lunch, bosses had good relationship with coworkers
Cons: tools messed up once in a while
I had many responsibilities once i started, but i did them to learn the ways of every tool. Once i got the hang of all the tools i got put to do more challenging obstacles, by the time i left there i could say i learn so much in little bit of time.

Lawn Care Worker (Former Employee), Pontiac, MIJune 24, 2015
Pros: Great break times
Cons: seasonal
I was able to work with top people in the field of lawn care. I learn multiple job skills and was able to make them apart of my life now. I still cut lines with my little 21" mower like I'm using a 60" at this place. I loved the group I worked with as well. We worked well together to get the jobs done.

Poor Environment
Crew Leader (Current Employee), IndianaJune 11, 2015
No benefits unless you are salaried, very minimal opportuity for advancement, no paid time off or sick leave unless salaried. They care more about the bottom line than their people and would rather hire new people over and over to keep pay low than to keep good workers and promote from within.

Enjoyable, hard work outdoors
General Laborer (Former Employee), Cincinnati, OHJune 11, 2015
Pros: Demanding work
Cons: Hot days outside, not much room for advancement, little job security
We started at a pretty early hour meeting at the main location. The teams loaded into their trucks to begin the work day. We cut a lot of grass and did landscaping for businesses. We also planted, cut down, and trimmed trees. Operated some equipment. The team was great and management was good as well. The hardest part about the job was being out in the sun. The most enjoyable part was the hard work and learning new processes for landscaping.

It's a degrading place to work.
Laborer (Former Employee), Dallas, TXJune 9, 2015
Pros: Job security.
Cons: Everything else.
A typical day starts with stretching. I learned how to plant flowers properly and that's about it. Management was trash and most of my co-workers were prejudice. The hardest part of this job is working 12 hours a day with little to no appreciation from management whatsoever. I didn't enjoy this job at all, but I stuck with it because I am loyal.

Operations Manager (Former Employee), Plano,TxJune 9, 2015
Pros: Great management team
Work would start at 6, would get my crews lined out for the day. Then would check all my properties and spray if needed. Check sprinkler controller programs and color. Would meet my crew at the end of the day, and check to make sure equipment is ready for tomorrow.

Lacking in management
Landscaping assistant (Former Employee), Frenchman CreekMay 28, 2015
Pros: Hours are good
Cons: No benefits or further advancement
Working for them was good at first then they fired employees that were illegal but what I don't understand is those particular employees had worked there for over 15 years. Then they bring in new employees who just weren't very good and it got to be too much trying to pick up the slack from the employees who weren't very good.

Horrible company
Crew Leader (Former Employee), Cincinnati, OHMay 21, 2015
When i first started at Brickman i had zero landscaping experience. the training there is horrible. they show you one time how to do something and expect you to be perfect at it after that. and if you dont know how to do something they will put you on the most meaningless job possible. the pay sucks, they are the oldest and biggest national landscaping company yet they pay the lowest. they expect you to drop your whole family life to be at their disposal. management there sucks...they are basically modern day slave drivers.

Supervisor (Former Employee), Chesapeake, VaApril 28, 2015
I learned many things dealing with lawn care. I learned how to supervise my own work crew. The best part of the job is getting the respect I got from my crew members.
