Cons: work load depends on the weather and the job is dangerous
I like my job but I do worry about the security since I live in a four season state and winter is coming up. I feel that everyone on my team does their fair share. I cannot afford the health insurance due to other obligations.
Tree Climber (Former Employee), Winchester, KY – October 26, 2013
Pros: outdoors, exciting, good.
Cons: problems receiving pay on time.
Sometimes difficult working around homes and power lines.Adrineline rush to topple a huge tree while avoiding homes and power lines. I learned a lot about the proper procedures handling chainsaws operating chippers & climbing. It is a good job for someone that enjoys the out doors and doesn't mind hard work. I have always been self motivated and not – more... afraid of hard work. – less
trimmer (Former Employee), Parker City, IN – September 13, 2013
Pros: hard work
Trimmed trees from start to finish, I learnt to climb and trim trees, how to operate bucket truck, and what hard work was really about. The management was great, they got in and donen the work with you if you got behind. Co-workers was okay, they was always trying to start drama with other works. So I tried to stay away from that as much as possible. – more... The hardest part is storm relief, long hours and working weeks straight. I really enjoyed climbing it I a profession I would like to done more of. – less
