If you want a life outside of work, look else where
Lawn Care Specialist (Current Employee) – Chicopee, MA – November 2, 2018
Long hours, little pay, working in all kinds of weather.
TruGreen - where you can bust your butt all day and bring in over a $1000 in production, only to be told at the of your day: "why didn't you do more?"
Pouring rain? Snow? Stay on the road and get everything done. Get back at night (soaking wet and freezing): "Did you get all your stops done?" Yes. "Did you make a sale?" No. "You're worthless then."
And that's during your first couple of weeks when you're learning to do the job, it only gets worse after week four... (I won't even bring up the ****ed off customers that you'll have to deal with on a daily basis...the ones that have been told "X" by the call centers only to have you tell them "that's not how it works...")
I also won't even mention all the free work they want you to do off the clock. Ask during your interview about "IN BRANCH TIME," and "CALL BLOCKS," and taking breaks and lunch (hint: you won't have time to take breaks or lunch.), and the sorry state of their equipment.
paid weekly, they provide boots and uniforms
the boots are uncomfortable, the uniforms are hot as **** in the middle of summer
