Challenging and exciting job!
Route Manager/Lawn Care Specialist (Current Employee) – Vadnais Heights, MN – December 18, 2015
A typical day at work would involve a morning meeting with management then assisting new hires in getting their route and required equipment prepared for the day. After that, managing a scheduled route or breaking off said route to assist anyone that needs help completing their day. At the end of the day, contacting clients that have any questions or concerns and assisting new hires with paperwork and end of day duties.
I have been at this job for over seven years so I have learned quite a lot! Working as a team, beig adaptable in performing multiple job duties, multitasking, customer service, leadership and effective communication skills.
The management staff has been great! They communicate effectively and go out of their way to assist anybody that needs help. Easily the best management group I have ever worked for! Same can be said about my co-workers. The veterans consistently go out of their way to assist anyone that needs help in completing their tasks for the day. Very easy to get ahold of and always willing to help. Great team atmosphere!
The hardest part of my job would be the actual physicality of the work. It can be demanding at times especially in the dead heat of summer. The most enjoyable part of this job would be the management group and co-workers. With such a large group, it is easy to find someone to assist if you fall behind on your work for the day or if you have any specific questions. It has also been great learning several different jobs and gaining a vast knowledge about agronomics.
Management/co-worker, great benefits
Weather conditions can be challenging
