Lawn Care Technician (Former Employee) – Sterling, VA – May 21, 2017
11-14 hour workday if u focus there is alot to learn service management is great but gm will never lighten the workload no matter how hot the temperature is relaxed but sneaky work culture the hardest part about the job is having free time for personal affairs and also hot trucks no ac in 100 degree temps the fact that u aren't micro managed
no micro managing bonuses, sells commission for techs
hot trucks, pressure to make sales, nearly unattainable numbers to meet goals for bonuses

The benefits are expensive. I make 12/hour working for a company that has 1.3 billion in revenue. The management is oppressive. There is a serious lack of professionalism from management. The turnover is high. It is a typical call center. The CEO makes 3 million per year but its the hourly employees that make the company what it is.
Excellent employees with a corporate structure that needs work

The corporate side of Trugreen needs to listen to their employees and put them first. Communication between customer and Trugreen is very lacking. Retention would be much higher if salesmen/customer service were on the same page as the technicians about what we can and cant do.
Working outside, working on your own.
Long hours, seasonal work, mandatory overtime/makeup days
Hard work with chemicals, customer service and sales

Days start at 7am and you are provided a route, usually, that you make lawn care stops too through out the day. This includes 30 to 40 stops. It is hard work with long hours and not a bad place to work if you don't have a social life. After 12 hours a day you are so covered with pesticides and filth you just want a shower and sleep.
Little to no supervision as you do your daily routes.
The chemicals are extremely toxic and make breathing some what hazardous.

I absolutely loved this job. I got to interact with customers on a daily basis and assist them with their problems and issues they were having. I was by myself all day but boss was just a phone call away if I had any problems.
Team effort 110% of the time
The trugreen workers on the phone and their system was garbage.

Working on your own and creating a good working relationship with your customers. Making their lawns look the absolute best creates a sense of pride. The health and vacation benefits are very nice as well.
