Branch Employment Coordinator (Current Employee), Hickory Hills, IL – April 15, 2014
Pros: management, benefits, carefree workplace
Cons: pressure to deliver, repetitiveness of position
I have enjoyed working for this company so far, in large part due to the staff and management. TruGreen offers much support to its employees and the environment is very welcoming and friendly. The management is easy to talk to and with an open door policy, any concerns I am having can always be addressed. The pay and benefits are very good as well, – more... the best I've received yet. The hardest part of my job is the repetition of it all because I typically enjoy more variation on the job, so it is hard to stay committed each day. TruGreen has given me a great experience so far and I value the new skills I have learned, and will look forward to utilizing them in my future. – less
Tele Sales (Former Employee), Charlotte, NC – April 10, 2014
Cons: worst company ever
Company went through 3 CEO's in 6 months, lost one million customers each year over this course of 10 years. Poor management. The company lays employees off during the down time (fall - winter months) then expects them to come back in the early spring (January). Tru Green is now a stand alone company, Service Master dropped them in late fall of 2013. – more... DO NOT go to work for this company. Especially in Charlotte, NC. – less
Field Sales Supervisor (Former Employee), Daytona Beach Florida – April 10, 2014
Pros: there is none
Cons: to many to list
Unfortunately a company that promised the moon, The upper management is corrupt, The sales that they have people sign up for, For a year is not that at all.

Service/Sales Specialist (Former Employee), Woodstock, GA – April 1, 2014
Work days began very early and often ended late. Toughest part of job was day to day weather conditions with strenuous labor while attempting to meet all goals. I enjoyed customer interaction the most while servicing accounts and making sales. Co-workers were all professional and provided proper advice to help day to day. Management was always reliable – more... and supported employees. – less
Outside Residential Sales Representative (Current Employee), Lee's Summit, MO – April 1, 2014
Pros: outside, every day is a bit different
Cons: work enviornment, compensation for hours worked, and working conditions
This was perhaps one of the most challenging jobs I have ever attempted. At the time the company was going through some tough transitions and had to make some tough decisions. That influx helped create an environment that was difficult to thrive in.
This job showed me you have to be patient with the process and try to not take things personally. I – more... enjoyed working with all of my co-workers and direct management was usually easy to talk to, eager to coach, and supportive. – less
Route Manager (Former Employee), Baltimore, MD – March 24, 2014
Pros: good pay
Cons: working six days long hours
Trugreen is a good place to work if you like to work hard and making a decent living. Only down side is working six days straight. Long hours but it still was a good place to work. You do get to travel had help your customers directly.
Route manager (Current Employee), Lake Forest, IL – March 20, 2014
Pros: good hours and pay
From day one I've had great relationship with all my co-workers including managers. It gave me the freedom to work unsupervised all day which let me know that I'm a natural hard worker because managers would move mountains to make sure I was happy as far as equipment, hours and route. I learn things very fast no matter the complexity. Co-workers were – more... very easy to get along with, I talked to everyone in the branch and never had issues with anyone. Hardest part of the job was the Red flag safety meetings, they were mandatory meetings aside from our weekly meetings. These were held the day after a company accident. This taught me how careless people can be and the consequences that ignoring safety can bring. Many were minor but a few were bad. What I enjoyed the most was the actual job and how well I did it plus it has kept me in excellent physical shape. – less
TruGreen was alot of fun but when it was time to work we were the best in the region
CUSTOMER SERVICE (Former Employee), Sterling Heights, MI – March 18, 2014
Pros: going out as a group every thursday night
Cons: the amount of phone calls we would receiving when billing statements went out .
The best part about working for this company was we all worked together to get things accomplished. If one department was hit hard and was falling behind we were all there as a company to help each other out even if it involved staying late and working overtime or changing our personal plans. We were definately like a family!
