Great oppotunity to get knwldge and apply on field
Lawn Specialist (Former Employee) – Sterling, VA – January 3, 2018
Receive my schedule sheet and determine witch materials we need to carry. I learned a lot regarding lawn problems and diagnostic to solve them. Managers are always to help. Job site is nice, co workers friendly and overall organized. The hardest part is the productivity due many properties are far away under real footage and they pay by production. This makes to much pressure to the technician in order get his daily goal The enjoyable part of this job is to find smiling customers with a greener and healthy lawn
Sales Representative/Customer Service (Former Employee) – Littleton, CO – August 16, 2018
We would start off i the morning making sure that we had enough door hangers and then we would go over the previous day and any obstacles that we encountered. After which we would do some role playing to get the juices flowing and be ready to deal with the public. After reviewing the maps of our sales regions we would go out as a team and pair up in twos to work both sides of the street and aide each other as needed with information about lawns or trees as well as moral support At the end of the night we would turn in our sales if any and prepare for the next day. With the freedom of being out side and going door to door you get to see a different side of sales instead of being inside an office. On the other hand it can be tough if you don't have the fortitude to speak with someone up close and personal in order to make a sale.
Residential Outside Sales Representative (Former Employee) – Sioux Falls, SD – August 15, 2018
A typical day at work started with an hour to two hour meeting of the boss chewing everyone out and making sure that each and every employee knows exactly how micro managed they are. The first week alone is strictly sitting in a room watching videos on a tablet about trugreen. I learned how to properly take care of a lawn, but that was it. The management was unprofessional and seemed to take advantage of being able to micromanage people and scare them into manipulating people for sales. The hardest part of the job is everything, there is not an easy part of the job I could list. You are outside for 7-9 hours straight in the heat, rain, or cold trying to manipulate people for sales. The most enjoyable part of the job is leaving it.
Outside in extreme heat on foot for 7 hours straight.
Lawn Care Specialist (Former Employee) – Fairfield, OH – August 14, 2018
You work 12 hour days they tell you to not take brakes during the day and when you come back from your route at the end of a LONG day the managers force you to make sales calls and don’t let you leave until you make one. Not a job it’s a lifestyle.
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) – Suwanee, GA – August 14, 2018
This company gives you hard quotas to meet. you listen to the customer but yet you cant have the call last too long . you cant have them on hold too long but yet the whole reason you put them on hold is because you need help and no one is around to help.
Free Lunches at time, decent pay, holidays off
stressful environment, having someone watch you constantly but yet no one can help

Outside Sales Lead (Current Employee) – Puyallup, WA – August 6, 2018
Flexible management and ability to be secure when not hitting minimums, high pressure work environment with little time off. Awful work life balance with majority of leads being given to veteran sales members.
