Toxic Work Environment

Cons
poor management, negative environment

relaxed enviornment
Landscaping Crew Member (Former Employee) –  Philadelphia, PAApril 20, 2018
Day's are relaxing by working with and for people who are easy to get along with. I learned while working here the importance of keeping our enviornment clean for the children and eldery due to reasons of drug bags, bottles, etc. being left on the surface which can cause harm to the community at large. The management team is excellent and know how to communicate without being arrogant and just seem to have a genuine care and concern for their coworkers and employees which allow you to feel as though you are a part of the team even when you know that it is a temporary job. The hardest part of the job and knowing that when you are working in parks where murders take place you by chance may happen to find a dead body. Although this never took place as far as I know you have to understand that this may be something you may run in to. The most enjoyable part of the job was being out in the nice weather working with people who really wanted to work and make a difference although others may never notice it.
Pros
van service meets at pick up spot next to public transportation
Cons
not being aware of how many days a week you would get to work
