Laborer (Former Employee) – Sterling VA – April 22, 2015
Great Seasonal Job for those looking for work a couple months before Christmas. They have plenty of work for you to do and a lot of money you can make. They tell you that you wont really work weekends but you'll end up working mandatory saturdays (every Saturday) when closing in on thanksgiving.
Telemarketing Associate (Former Employee) – VA Beach, VA – February 22, 2017
A typical day at work would be to arrive at 9 am and start calling previous customers and offer lawn care services. I would make outgoing calls from 9 am to 5 pm. I learned working here to remain calm and not say anything I would regret. Sometimes you come across a angry customer and you just have to stay calm and quiet. The workplace culture was very upbeat, fun and witty. I enjoyed the work environment. The hardest part of the job was dealing with angry customers on the phone. The most enjoyable part of the job would be the bonuses for the most sells each week. Overall working for this company was great.
Lawn Technician (Former Employee) – Hickory Hills, IL – February 20, 2017
Lot of training to do the job. Work at your own pace and can take lunch whenever you want to lots of freedom included as well. Also the job does give lots of percs and it is a great place to work for. Including being seasonal job, you work 8 months and have 5 months off.Work days are either long or usually average.

The best part about working at TruGreen is that we help each other and motivate each other to be better. If they do not have the necessary tools to help you excel, they will find a way for you to be successful.
Very difficult job for $13/hour - Randolph location
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) – Randolph NJ – February 18, 2017
Jobs is not fun. Two week training period, then you are on the phone. Your every move is monitored and tracked. Cell phones must be kept in the drawer. Your calls are monitored and you get weekly reviews. If you fall below certain standards you are put on performance review and require additional coaching. Schedules can change every other week...one Saturday per month is required. Daily role plays are done. No vacation or sick days. Doctors appointments and emergencys are unexcused absences. There is no water cooler or coffee. You must learn a legacy system which houses all the customer data and you must be a quick typer. No one talks to each other because you are fielding one call after another from upset, angry customers. Very high turnover rate with average tenure being about 4-6 months.
Lawn Care Specialist (Current Employee) – Orchard Park, NY – February 11, 2017
I have learned many different aspects of treating lawns properly, and this knowledge is something I can spread to others. The management is easy to work for. The hardest part of the job is the heat in the summer months. The most enjoyable part of the job is being on your own out in the field daily!
Management staff at the TG call center in Crestwood is awesome. Continue to work on the commission structure and r insurance. Love working for Crestwood fair and continue to be very aggressive in purchasing other companies.
Ware House Technician (Current Employee) – Grandville, MI – February 7, 2017
A typical day at work is to experience a new problem or situation that requires me to act decisively. Management and the culture of TruGreen makes a day of work fun and enjoyable. There is no difficulty in the job that I do, as a warehouse technician. This is the reason for me looking for another career.
No immediate supervision. I manage my own work schedule.
Sales Representative for the Little Rock (Former Employee) – Little Rock, AR – February 6, 2017
I loved my job. I learned so much and was able to make life changes, however, there were a lot of issues with the service side of things. It became too difficult to achieve sales quotas because of the continual bad service done by that dept. Also it became too difficult for me to keep up with the hours and still try to have a life with my kids as a single mom.
