A typical day for me would start at 6am organizing crews to get out the gate with their punch out items for each individual property. I would than check emails, handle customer requests, attend meetings, than I would be out inspecting my jobs in order to create punch-outs for the following week. While at each property I would take notes and measure areas in order to provide landscape enhancement proposals for the client and to meet with allocated budgets, the most enjoyable part of my job is to design and create beautiful landscape s
Good salary, Company vehicle, Great Team
Tremendous Growth, Less personable with big corporate.
Great work expierence, great crew leaders and great oppertunities for moving up in the company. flexible hours as well as the managers are willing to extend hours if i need them, worked in new places frequently, the property managers met with me constantky great communication between me and the managers, loved working with different people on a regular basis, loved learning about the new plants and trees and landscaping ideas. only negative is if your not able to work full time at 6 days a week for long hours this job isnt the best for yu, you need to be committed to your job, and to your crew your performance really reflects your job.
Support Service Rep (Former Employee) – New Albany, OH – December 11, 2016
a typical day working at brickman was taking about 2 calls a day and doing some email processing from companies that we partner with. i learned how to use microsoft excel in the process of working there, which was used on a daily. The management was really great and friendly. there was not hard part to the job, once you knew how to do the job, everything was smooth sailing. the most enjoyable part was the location and mostly the people.
nationally known and their management is a staple for their convention. they have a great educational culture sharing knowledge of plants and other landscaping material to their employees. advancement is their if youre seeking it. being bilingual is a plus.
Office Assistant/Bookkeeper (Former Employee) – Bayshore Ny – December 1, 2016
I enjoyed the opportunity to multi-task on several occasions. Whether it was someone at the counter needing a PO #, or someone on the phone. I loved the type of work I did there, they had different computer programs and I was using them on a daily basis to process the workload. Everyone got along with each other, there were approximately 25 people working together.
Driver (Former Employee) – Maryland Heights, MO – July 28, 2016
A typical work day consisted of fast paced work and friendly encounters with management, co-workers and customers. I learned a lot about the landscaping business and how to be successful in it. Management was very pleasant every morning they supplied us with tool and information for the various jobs. My co-workers were all team-oriented and took all jobs very seriously.
Senior Support Service Representative (Former Employee) – New Albany, OH – June 5, 2016
I enjoyed my time working at Brickman, it was very flexible, it was very easy to get the time off when you needed it. Not sure if its like that today. I had a great boss, who was very cool and made sure we stayed busy at all times. She created projects for everyone to do. I would work there again if I had the opportunity.
Brach Administrator (Current Employee) – NJ – April 23, 2013
The Brickman Group is a great company to work for. Although it is a large company, we are structured with smaller offices throughout the country to be able to better service our customers. The compensation and benefits are great! The company has great culture and very family feel to it. There is many opportunities for advancement in different areas of the company or in many other locations. The management staff has a great open door policy and is always willing to include everyone. There is great work/life balance for anyone who has a family and is very flexible for hours,etc. if the need arises.
good benefits, many company activities for learning and company fun

working at brickman thought me alot. like how to work with all different type of people. i also learned how to do different things like run machines at a young age now im a master at using any machine i use. the management at brickman was different but it still was there so i learned from them to. the hardest part of the job was definitely using shovels for everything that had anything to do with digging. the management didn't like spending money on machines when 6 guys could do the same thing in a longer period .
Crew Member (Former Employee) – Sunrise, FL – May 9, 2016
Morning exercises as a group along with all crews. I learned better management and customer service skills. Co workers were nice and made the work day go by faster. The hardest part of the job was the unfavorable weather conditions each day. The most enjoyable part was after so many days of no injuries or accidents concerning the workers everyone would be rewarded, fed at a picnic and showed lots of appreciation through gift cards.
ACCOUNT MANAGER (Former Employee) – West Palm Beach, FL – November 2, 2012
Great company if you get a good management team over you that does not micro manage. They have a process in place for everything which is both good and bad at times. As an account manager, you will need to work 12 hour days and get paid for a 40 hour week. No commission for work order or new sales. Not great salary for job responsibilities. 45-55K for account manager position. Good flexibility if you have a great branch manager. Overall would have been more ideal if the pay was based on performance and not how good you know upper management.
Crew Member (Former Employee) – Sanford, FL – November 6, 2013
Good pace starts in the morning with stretches, crew members ask questions one at a time they get discussed and answered to improve work ethics and better the group. I've learn lots about safety dealing with different obstacles when cutting, edging, blowing, trimming, an cleaning, etc. I accelerated and became mobile (porting) interacting with different crew members learned many different work ethics, led others and taught others what I learned to better the group. Going from 40 hours to avg. 50 hours a week wasn't really a big issue with the work walking a few miles extra daily with the added responsibilities brought on a load for what my salary was. Overall the job is a great career and I recommend anyone interested to join the group.
A good company
Wouldn't adjust to my desired pay for labor/ Poor Manangment
Machine Operator/ Executive Mow Crew Leader (Former Employee) – Portage, MI – January 21, 2013
I have never worked in a more unprofessional workplace with no communication and no rewards for going above and beyond your job description. I was told i would receive a raise after being promoted and never received one. I was driving over an hour one way to work for my promotion and never received any kind of compinsation. I talked to my branch manager about problems with my supervisor, he assured me and my whole crew things would change and they did everything got worse. I have no good things to say about this company. It was a horrible experience. I was making 16.00 an hour and driving a 1/4 of the disatnce then got cut to 9.50 and that was my promotion plus driving 2 1/2 hours a day. More responsibility less pay and using more of my gas.
