Lawn Care Technician (Former Employee) – Ephrata, PA – August 5, 2016
DO NOT APPLY!!! Please read all of this it is the truth that they will try to hide from you. For starters the job ad is a lie, you do not make $15 an hour, it's commission based, they will claim it says $15 an hour because that's about you will make, that it is very inaccurate. 6 days a week 8-10 hours a day and you will not make $15 an hour. Also they tell you that there is 2-3 weeks where you won't work, I'm on week 8 of no work, I have on countless occasions called, texted even went into the office to ask when I'm working again and they kept pushing the date back farther and farther even stopped responding to me.
The working conditions are very poor, I had to wear the same dirty uniform for 2 weeks because they wouldn't get new uniforms nor clean the uniforms we had. The trucks you drive are in poor condition, some don't have working AC and there are issues all over the place the equipment is even worse! Rough patches and fixes are used to hold these old broken equipment together. There is no reliable management, they are more concerned about sales than their employees. There is little to no safety equipment for techs to use and there are plenty of dangerous chemicals that you will come into contact with daily.
During my time there four people quit their job, to put that in perspective that is about half of the technicians that work at that location.
I lost a whole summers worth of work and greatly needed that income.
There is no possibility of promotion and no raise in pay.
unsafe, bad management, bad working conditions, poor equipment
