Good overtime
Specialist (Current Employee) –  Greenville, SCNovember 8, 2015
I'm still employed here, but that will not keep me from being honest. Overtime later in the season is good, and typically associates work 4/10 hour days, sometimes later. Benefits are good, but the pay is average. There is no support system within this company, and the job cultural is horrific. The management is perhaps one of the worst I've encountered in all my years of working.
Pros
no weekends work for the most part.
Cons
lack of communication and professionalism.

Right from the start the opportunities were a falsehood.
Outside sales (Current Employee) –  Buffalo, NYJanuary 21, 2016
Too aggressive in their approach. In the Buffalo market the weather wouldn't break quick enough so the office was the place for long, long dialing & smiling all day long. You'll destroy your car & work long hours for meager pay. Stay away.

fun workplace
Sales Executive (Former Employee) –  Grand Rapids, MI and Jackson, MINovember 12, 2015
Long. long, long hours. 8-9 m-f and most Saturdays mornings. A bit frustrating to work for them. They have you do bidding all day long, then give you 1 hour to relax. Then, at 4, you come to the office and make calls until 9 p.m..
Pros
Decent pay, exciting atmosphere for selling.
Cons
Hours are horrible. No room for advancement. Many customers do not want them calling them.

Decent job, but no advancement.
Aide sales to current and potential customers (Former Employee) –  Hickory Hills, ILOctober 26, 2015
Good job for a while. Once the season gets going, you job is to no longer focus on your quality of work on the lawns, but, instead, how many sales you get. They also schedule far too many stops per day, making it impossible to focus too much time on any particular property.
Pros
a job
Cons
too much pressure, not enough time in the day to finish the work given.

Always changing things with no notice
Sales Supervisor (Current Employee) –  Tampa, FLNovember 11, 2015
The management is never on the same page. You can ask the same question to 3 different sup's and get 3 different answers. They are constantly changing things such as your schedule and only give you a few days notice.
Pros
Sales contest you win free stuff. Can make good money during peak season
Cons
Micro manage thier agents

Young managment
sales (Former Employee) –  lovelandOctober 13, 2015
Phone calls all day long. Learned a great deal about what is good for lawns and trees in our geographical area.
By asking questions and listening to the customer, I could direct them to what is good for their property.
Young manager wouldn't listen to my suggestions. 5 people quit over the summer because of his manipulation and lying. Wasn't an honorable man.
Best part of the job was the customers thanking us for a good job.
Pros
None
Cons
Young manager

learned lots about grass and shrubbery
LAWN CARE SPECIALIST (Former Employee) –  Castle Hayne, NCNovember 14, 2015
Thought the pay was not enough for the job and driving you did as a lawn special list. Dealing with customers was hard when you had to go fix what a staff member messed up
Pros
learned lots about grass and shrubs
Cons
pay was to low for the job you were doing and manager didn't seem like he had a clue
