Door to Door Sales (Former Employee) – Dothan, AL – November 22, 2016
This job was easy for the most part. Walk door to door and offer free lawncare quotes. Let the customer know what kind of serviced weedman offers, and hope they say yes. A "yes" is super important to the business and getting them can be difficult. We got an extra dollar for every yes we got. The management was always great and super kind. I got days off when needed, a pay raise the next year, and constant training to help better my work experience. The only downside is a lot of the customers hate you. They don't like door to door sales. They don't care if you have a permit, they don't care if you aren't technically soliciting since you aren't selling anything. Just take the hate with a grain of salt and keep moving. They pay was worth it to me.
Love the company, there is great management, who will work around school or family no matter what the situation. Very high energy atmosphere with the sales. Managers and employees all work together to improve on sales which is great for sales and earning commission. I will continue to work for this company as long as I can.
Pay is great
Not a lot of hoursat first, but potential to earn more
Sales Manager (Former Employee) – Purceville, VA – October 20, 2015
Fast paced, continuously hiring company with low company moral and very high employee turn over rate. Now they do have a very supportive management structure, but do not implement any employee retention practices.
Strong support structure from Owner
Too much turn over and low moral causes no employee loyalty
Inexperienced Sales Crew Management. In need of good sales experienced salesman/managers/LEADERS If someone with prior d2d history were to be placed in the position of door knocking supervisor rather than someone just pulled off the streets in good standing with the franchise owner. The business would flourish and thrive quick. In need of someone able to practice what is preached! Able to jump out and get 20 leads without having to rely on the crews results.
Sales (Current Employee) – Albion Ny – May 5, 2015
A typical day at the weed man is coming in and getting right on the phone. when we reach someone we see if they have lawn care service and or if they are happy with the service that they are getting. Management is good and my coworkers are to.
Lawn Care Technician (Former Employee) – Euclid, OH – February 10, 2015
Love working outdoors, money was pretty good but the management was awful, love that it was commission based, would load my truck in the morning complete as many lawns as possible then head back and clean up.
PT position working evenings selling fertilizing and weed control services to potential customers. I have a degree in horticulture with helped my success to becoming the top salesperson within the company. Love building a rapport with customers and educating them on all the benefits of our services with product knowledge and wisdom on turf, and services. I have learned that with tenacity and confidence I can achieve set goals. If you don't quit you win. Don't let a "No" response stifle me, just move on. The owner of the company is always willing to help out and always available to the employees. I've made some great friendships at work. Always taking the new hires under my wing and help them polish their delivery, mentor them and always willing to answer any questions. The hardest part of the job is trying to sell lawn care to people when there is 5 feet of snow on the ground and the cut in hours during the off season. The most enjoyable part of my job is getting the 'Yes' and closing that big sale! The commission keeps me wanting to strive for more. I guess you could say that I am money driven.
Solicitor (Former Employee) – Lawrenceville, GA – August 25, 2013
I absolutely loved working for WeedMan Lawn Care Company. We worked Monday through Thursday from 4pm to 7:30 pm, and on Saturday from 9 am to 1 pm. We would walk from door to door asking people would they like a free lawn analysis. We stayed on our feet for 3 hours with no breaks. I enjoyed every minute working with this company, and I wouldn't mind doing it again.
Door Knocker (Former Employee) – Sharonville, OH – May 19, 2012
We would meet at the shop everyday at 4:45 and go around to all the big subdivisions in southwestern ohio and northern kentucky and go door to door offering a free estimate on lawn fertilization and weed control
