Too much responsibility for the pay
Specialist (Former Employee) – Lafayette, IN – July 8, 2018
First off starting out at $13 an hour these days just doesn't cut it, and to add to it, there are way too many responsibilities for the pay. Treating lawns is easy and an educating experience mixed in with a little manual labor, but $13 an hour isn't enough to be responsible for a work truck and working off the clock just to name a couple. Also, the pressure to make sales is ridiculous when the commission on the sales is only 10-15% of a $300 sale on average. Plus, having to wait two weeks to receive the commission and not receiving every commission is a pain in the butt and unfair. There are a couple other bonuses but doesn't make up for the lack of hours you receive in the beginning of the season. Needed personal time off and didn't get what I needed during an emergency due to pressure to be at work. All this so management cab get a bigger bonus To top it off you get laid off for about 4 months if you live where it gets too cold. Yeah.
