Hard work for little compensation
Lawn Care Specialist (Former Employee), Madison, WIAugust 27, 2014
Worked outside for 10-12 hrs in the heat with little to no breaks. the work loads were too much for most employees to handle in a single day. Management was unsupportive and judgemental. Didnt know most of my coworkers since everyone was too busy to help or socialize.

don't waste your time
lawn tech (Current Employee), CharlotteAugust 20, 2014
Pros: increased lawn knowledge
Cons: under paid. disrespectful. not given adequate tools or equipment
Techs deal with all issues. Blamed for csr and sales lies. Customers pay for apps that are the same as another persons property thats dbl in size. Management is stagnant. Service management does almost no training. Heaven forbid you call in sick.hurt or have to watch your children. Raises are promised then forgotten. Techs are expected to allow customers – more... to speak and treat them in negative manners. The majority of coworkers abuse illicit substances. Zero notice about working weekends. Customer lawns are treated in rain. Windy conditions and so. Labor and eeoe violations every day. I urge you not to work there. – less

Good
Lawn care specialist (Former Employee), Essex, MDAugust 19, 2014
Pros: great management, indiviualised work, great pace
Cons: the climate changes, getting sick, overdemanding customers
Trugreen overall was a good job, It has its up and downs. The job gave you the opportunity to be self-sufficient. Most of the work is outside doing lawn work, which is pretty easy the rest is just loading and unloading your truck and calculating how much resources you've used.

Well
Front Office Assistant (Former Employee), Burnsville, MNAugust 16, 2014
Pros: co-workers equal awesome!
Cons: no benefits
Co-workers are what made this job worth showing up. The customers were often nice and understanding, but "cold-calling" was not for me. There is a lot of information to take in but not much benefits offered to part-time people, especially as it is a seasonal position in my state.

Long hours, Fantastic Pay, Good people, High expectations!
Outside Sales Representative (Former Employee), Pensacola, FLAugust 14, 2014
Pros: very high income potential (2nd full week working alone, made salary + $1, 200 commission)
Cons: very long days and work weeks (55-60+ hours a week)
Typical day:
-Arrive work 9:00-10:00 AM. Sales meeting, pep talk, sales training. -Leave building 12:00-1:00PM to go door-to-door in neighbourhoods anywhere from 5-90 minutes away
-Arrive back at office around 7:00-8:30PM

Learned how to present and make sales to random people.

Management was very cool. Sales leader was a great guy and had tons of – more... experience and personality. Good leader.

Hardest Part? Long hours, lots of rejection, not compensated hourly (paid salary and overworked, no overtime)

Most Enjoyable? Getting sales and then receiving a fat commission paycheck on top of normal salary. My 2nd full week working alone I was top sales guy across three cities and made $1,200 plus my salary (~$1,700 total in one week). All this coming from limited sales background. One thing to keep in mind - I did this during arguably the peak season for company (March). Not sure what long term commission over whole year would look like. – less

destroy your own car to make them money
Outside Residential Sales (Former Employee), Clarion, PAAugust 7, 2014
Cons: everything
This is a joke. First off you use your own car. Who buys gas oil tires brakes YOU DO. They paint a pretty picture when you are new but soon you figure out that you are loosing more money than you make. Then realize you haven't seen your family in longer than you remember. Your job simply put is to lie then harass people tell them whatever it takes just – more... make the sale.then when the customer is angry ignore them nobody cares just sign people up. In my managers words who cares if they cancelled we will just sign them up and get credit for the sale twice. I worked there for over 2 years and can't begin to touch on all the reasons to avoid this company as an employee or a customer trust me save your time and frustration. Avoid at all costs any position you will regret it even if you do well the time of year will come when you are dumped without notice mine was moments after closing a 2500 sale – less

Lawn tech (Current Employee), GrandvilleAugust 4, 2014
Pros: can make lots of money quick
Cons: to many to list.
Lots of hours, nothing they do makes much sense and all they care about is if you hit numbers not even if you do your job well or satisfy customers. They over schedule all the time so you end up calling customers to tell them

Lawn Specialist Tech (Current Employee), Wichita ,KSJuly 31, 2014
I drive a scheduled route in various towns in Kansas and spray NPC chemicals to control insects.

Iv'e learned to be very detailed on this job and how to deal with customers and providing a service that makes their life more pleasant.

My co-workers are good to work with in general.

dealing with maps that are set up wrong and trying to get to homes – more... that are difficult to find. Also working in extreme heat for long hours.

working in cooler temperatures and no humidity and being able to complete all assigned jobs. – less
