OK if you like yard work
Aeration Specialist (Former Employee) –  Morrisville, NCOctober 18, 2018
A typical day at TruGreen means coming in at 6:30 am and not leaving until after 6 at night. It probably will not be communicated during the interview process that the hours will end up being 10-12 hours a day six days a week. Because the hours are so long you end up being paid ok, and on the plus side it is every Friday. Management seems to be a little confused on the jobs that each employee is doing so that can be troublesome.

The job vs the atmosphere is contradicting
canceling specialist appointments (Former Employee) –  Oldsmar, FLOctober 18, 2018
The job duties are not hard at all. I was able to go from a customer service representative, data entry representative then a team lead from March 2013 to Feb 2016. However, the atmosphere was petty and childish. No one is held accountable for their actions and a lot of unnecessary complaints that were manageable with proper management. The raises they offer were only $.25 cent or less once a year.

Good job but no job security
Data Entry Clerk (Current Employee) –  Plant City, FLOctober 18, 2018
If you're good with sales then this is the place for you. For anyone else, this probably isn't the job. The company is pretty laid back, friendly coworkers and an overall nice vibe but it borders on unprofessional. The real problem is the constant change in management and that abruptness of which you can be terminated or laid off.
Pros
Business Casual dress code, on the job training
Cons
seasonal lay offs

productive
Outdoor Sales Representative (Former Employee) –  Birmingham, ALOctober 17, 2018
productive work environment, the only downside was traveling distance and having to be outside daily and still having to come back to the office after your outdoor shift was completed.

Work and Life balance is really not worth it there
3 years of experiences as sales rep (Former Employee) –  Melbourne, FLOctober 15, 2018
Work and life balance not great. If you in college be ready to get laid off after 5 months because they'll start blaming you for coming 5 minutes late
Cons
pressure during days with no sales, hard to get commission, 1 days off in a week.

Not what I was promised
Sales Associate (Current Employee) –  Charlotte, NCOctober 15, 2018
The environment at TruGreen is unlike any I have experienced. Too much is left to the direct discretion of the manager so therefor bias is a problem. The commission I was promised at time of hire came to fruition for maybe 2 or 3 weeks out of the time I worked there. Most people save up through the year and are able to collect unemployment during the layoff period but I was not able to do that.
Also, the company does not put money back into the employees with building maintenance and supplies for the employees. Not my favorite place that I have worked at
Pros
Work is fairly easy
Cons
Manager is constantly reminding you he can fire you

Locally good peeps but very little control on the day to day
Sales Manager (Former Employee) –  Redmond, WAOctober 14, 2018
Worked here for 14 years and learned a lot in my time. The local teammates are good people however that's where it stops. They work people into the ground and don't care 1 bit about the people that go way above and beyond.
Pros
Potential for good income
Cons
No work life balance at all and no clear path for people who want a future.

Great for leadership experience
Field manager (Current Employee) –  Farmingdale, NJOctober 11, 2018
You can quickly get promoted at this company. There is an extremely high turnover rate, so if you keep your head down and do your job day in and day out. Don't call out, and show a motivation to do everything that is asked of you. It is absolutely possible to become a member of management within 3 years.
Pros
unlimited overtime.
Cons
bad work life balance. a lot of responsibilites

fast paced environment with room for advancement if you prove your worth
Horticultural Technician (Former Employee) –  Windsor, CTOctober 10, 2018
typical days are about 11-12 hours and four days a week. the management is hard to deal with at times but will do their best to help out the employees. the time frame for completing your work by is very strict and tight, almost impossible to complete the amount of work they give you on a daily basis. the nice thing about working there is that you are alone in your own truck for the whole day with no boss or manager hovering around you.

Commercial Manager (Former Employee) –  Montgomery, ALOctober 9, 2018

Lawn Technician (Current Employee) –  Ankney, IaOctober 6, 2018
Terrible place to work if you or your children have health issues. They give no leniency even if you are dealing with a life-or-death situation. Management has no respect for their employees and will treat them like garbage.
Pros
Co workers are great
Cons
Management doesnt respect employees

What a joke.
Lawn Specialist (Former Employee) –  Hickory Hills, ILOctober 3, 2018
If your not weight appropriate or athletic, then this job is not for you. They EXPECT you to finish within a certain amount of time with incorrect information on customers property size, faulty equipment that the service manager will get to when it convenience them, not paying you for the COMPLETE work status, i.e. being full time while working only 5-6 hours a day.

Don’t work here!!!
Specialist (Current Employee) –  Johnstown, PAOctober 3, 2018
Management is a joke here. You only advance in this company if you are on your knees or if you kiss azz 24/7. Also do not expect any type of raise worth anything. John Collins is also the worst manager ever. He doesn’t care about anything except getting his bonus which he has no problem letting everyone know about.
