If you want no life, or an excuse to end it
Applicator/Technician (Former Employee) – Concord, CA – June 10, 2016
I don't think, with the current state of this company, it could get much better than what I experienced. Oh man was it bad. 12 hour days sprung on you - day of, or 5 days in a row. Poor communication between upper and middle management. Managers are hired and fired like the plague. Sales becoming the only thing that matters. unethical practices like performing services without consent. Or being required to aerate peoples lawns without marking for sprinklers, just to save time. Customers getting gouged with crazy expensive services from people barely trained to diagnose problems. Oh and my favorite, a fancy auto-scheduling system that auto-calls customers the night before, scheduling services they don't want, saying "sometime between 7am and 5pm, we will do the service". So they call in the morning b4 work, get put on hold for 45 minutes till their cut-off, 6 hours later you show-up. Meanwhile upper management doesn't have a clue why the customer base is plummeting. So they're looking for someone to hang all the time. And any number of money-centric disfunctional practices that caused me to frantically quit this job ASAP..
