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.
productive fun work place you become a team/family

Working at trugreen is great, they took me in and I felt like family right away they made sure I understood what is expected of me and asked if I had any questions made sure I was comfortable before letting me go solo.

A lot of these reviews for this location are fake. You get 35-40 jobs a day. If you don't get it all done, you'll hear it from management. Your told it's mandatory to work more than 40 hours. In weekly meetings, they curse and yell at you if the branch didn't meet the goal. they say if you don't like it, there's the door. The mechanic curses and yells at everyone and the mgrs don't care. Favoritism is big there. Besides 35 daily stops you have to knock on doors to make sales and if you don't, you get punished in different ways. The machines and trucks always breakdown. New vehicles go to favorite s. Benefits and overtime is good in the summer but the with the stress, you'll need it. It's good if you need to make money fast but don't plan a career. It's like McD. Every body worked there once. sidenote it wasn't always this way

i learned a lot working for this company it just wasn't enough drive to stay, knowing that this job is seasonal, it doesn't help me advance to take care of my needs in life. Other than the problem of being laid off in the off season it is a great job.
Lawn, Tree and Shrub Care Specialist (Former Employee) – Alcoa, TN – June 20, 2018
TOO MANY HILLS! in Tennessee for me thought I could handle spraying fertilizer and minor lawn care, but i started during the time of winter feeding at blackberry farm and in one day they expected me to use some broken down outdated super awkward machine to aerate several hundred acres and the hills were the worst every one else uses golf carts to get around. Get better equipment!
Lawn care specialist (Former Employee) – Mooresville, NC – June 7, 2018
I worked here and they make all these promises of advancement in pay and position...i spoke with another coworker who was here for a few years and he told me he received a .30 cent raise in 3 years...and the way they keep from giving raises is by pushing their specialists to make sales ...and you do not always make sales ...you might get lucky and make a few but that is it! then they tell you if it is thundering and lightening out we are not suppose to treat lawns...well more lies ! I had to work in downpours with lightning only a few miles away! and the equipment? well that is a joke! the management are so stuck on pleasing corporate they wont spend a dime on new equipment! do not apply here unless you love being treated like garbage!

If you can't stand to be out in the heat beyond an hour, find a desk job. Pretty boys need not apply, you're going to sweat and your feet will hurt after you get done trust me. You'll get some great direct deposits, but you're going to have to grind.

After working for a over a year I have notice that there is no standard operating procedure. Rules apply to one person doesn't apply to others. Some who are forced to do more work while others sit and do nothing.

Hard work but they have good managers who can help you figure things out. Your fellow employes also will help you understand your job.Only bad thing is the job is seasonal and you are on workmans comp over the winter months in cold climates.
Lawn Care Specialist (Current Employee) – Taylor, MI – April 26, 2018
I found the TruGreen was a pretty good place to work. The management in the building in upper management we're all pretty good. Unfortunately for the Lawn Care Specialists there was a heavy stress on sales.
Registered Technician/Lawn care (Former Employee) – Kingsport, TN – April 18, 2018
I have been in the landscape industry now for close to 15 years and I have to admit this was the first job where they actually thought they knew more about the industry and had a 1/3 of the time experience.

Have to be a self starter to work here. Have to do the job right weather someone is looking or not. Management is fantastic. The co workers are helpful. Everyone works as a team in the mornings and get the job done.

Just started last week, training was a breeze. Lots of simple, logical stuff. On the job training starts this week, so hopefully it will go good. After a few classroom days, training switches to on the job
Lawn Care Specialist (Former Employee) – Pembroke Pines, FL – March 21, 2018
This company was great to work for before they went corporate. There was bonus's constantly if you met your quota, there was plenty of overtime to give and they were reasonable with the time given to complete stops.
