Landscaper (Former Employee) – Rosamond, CA – June 14, 2018
Mainscape is a good place to work if your young and barely getting your feet wet. Since i didnt see alot of advancement i wouldnt call working there a career, but it does offer an excellent working enviroment.

being on the sit at mainscape ,was great working with some of all kinds of diffrent people who motivated you to work hard,and strive for a greater positon.i learn that it was not all about trimming bushes or cleaning it was about how great of job you done and how happy you made your customors afterwards.
Operations Field Manager (Former Employee) – Riverview, FL – December 22, 2017
Excellent workplace and staff. Safety oriented and encourage employees to perform these practices even when they are not in the workplace. Care for employees and acknowledge initiative and commitment as well as value the work of each employee.
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.
Long and steady hours (Peak seasons), Lawn care skills, Supervisor approval to borrow tools and machinery, Company work shirts, hats, vests;

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.
Dynamic environment in terms of the military community and contributing to progress and the quality of life for the service members and their families

As a former military spouse, I could understand and appreciate the military community, contributed to the quality of life for our service members and their families, learned so much about my mission and worked well my superiors.
Very busy at times because of work-load, but preferred it.
