Perks or treats? How about working 6 days a week, 1/2 time pay for all hours over 40 and getting laid off as soon as things slow down with no advance notice. If your "lucky" enough to get into management, I hope you have no life, because your workday will be 6am to 8pm six days a week. If you live in the northeast, you also get the perk of working under the biggest moron in all of lawn care. He shouldn't be running his household checkbook, nevermind being a regional yes-man. As far as the job goes, you need to be comfortable cheating, stealing and lying to customers about services they 'need', because the truth is that most lawns don't need fertilizer every 3 weeks when they are dormant in the summer months. Besides all those treats, its a great job, NOT! After working there for 6 years, I have never been happier now that I have my life back.
