Choose what YOU want to do with life
Lawn Care Specialist (Current Employee) – Lititz, PA – January 3, 2019
If you are looking to get rich, BUT lack the drive to go up the chain of command and willingness to move to do so... this is not the place for you.
If; however, you are looking to have the feeling of being self reliable and out in the field, talking with customers and handling their lawns than this is the place for you. I have greatly enjoyed my time at TruGreen, and will continue to do so. I have no intentions on moving from this company as I highly value my social life with the team; and the freedom that working solo provides me. There is a large workload though which needs to be done every day in the summer, which with this type of work is the hardest time to do the amount of physical labor necessary. Getting that done is a rewarding feeling though, and will help you get your steps in!
Social structure, equipment support, and work loads do vary from branch to branch.
Compensation just took a bump up, though still leaves a bit to be desired. That said, if you are looking for higher wages you can go up the chain. I have seen three promotions from the local branch in just one year, and this is not just a fad but the normal.
If you are undecided what to do in life it is perfectly reasonable to work at TruGreen for a season or two and do your searching for your personal goals during the Seasonal Lay-off. Would love to see more good workers come in and stay in but remember that your life is for you to choose.
