Selling Counterfeit Dreams
Fertilizer Technician (Former Employee) –  Wilmington, NCNovember 6, 2017
Was told during interviewing they "never layoff, unless work performance related." Went through a span of about a month where we lost $1.5-$2 MILLION DOLLARS OF WORK and numerous properties. During all this time, remaining over-employed (45-50 crew members -- should have been 30 tops) because management wanted to "build a strong team for Spring." Was laid off because they "didn't have the work to support me through the rest of the year."

No consistency with crews. You can be on pruning one day or two, then all of a sudden working on a maintenance crew.

Communication is horrendous within management. You'll get texts the morning of to tell you "No work today" or get there and then be sent home upon arrival. Crew leads will demand you work in the pouring rain, all because the OFMs are up their a**es, yet they just drive around in their pretty trucks all day, not getting wet.

Not sure if the company itself is this bad overall or just the branch in Wilmington You can look at the 1.8 star rating on Google and see how terrible of a branch Mainscape Wilmington is.
Pros
Long and steady hours (Peak seasons), Lawn care skills, Supervisor approval to borrow tools and machinery, Company work shirts, hats, vests;
Cons
Low, inconsistent hours (Off-season), Inconsistency with crews, Poor Communication

They disclose personal information

They disclose personal information to other employees for no reason. Invasion of privacy. They are a horrible company to work for. Very little pay also. The owner is being charged with embezzlement.

Enjoyed job
crew member (Former Employee) –  North Port, FLDecember 24, 2015
Loved working outdoors, mowing, weed whacking and other grounds maintenance type work. Tools used were riding mower, tools to trim bushes and trees. The hardest part was getting laid off due to lack of work. It's a cut throat business in terms of the office/Supvr. finding enough work to keep the crew busy.
Cons
Subject to lay-off when work was slow
