    I have been working at TruGreen full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Good management, open door. Willing to assist and answer questions when needed. Good relationship with entire staff. Overall excellent team at our branch. always hitting goals, everyone pitching in to reach a common goal.

    Cons

    98% of work even in the administrative department is seasonal. You face a layoff every year which is very, very difficult financially.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Create creative ways to maintain administrative staff year round to cut back on turnover, cost of recruiting and training new people every year.

    General Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee  in  Indianapolis, IN
    Anonymous Employee in Indianapolis, IN
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 5+ weeks - interviewed at TruGreen in March 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied directly through the TruGreen Careers website. I received an email instructing me to take an online assessment test shortly after I applied. Approximately two weeks later, I received a phone call from the local HR person asking me to come in for an interview with the GM, HRM, and Regional HR Mgr. The interview was relaxed and informal with very few difficult questions. Shortly after the panel interview, I was flown down to the TruGreen testing facility in Memphis. The facility appears to be a regular office on the exterior without any company markings on it whatsoever. There are multiple rooms inside with one-way, mirror-like, pictures so the staff can view your every move. The assessment lasts a full eight hours and is designed to show all of your strengths and weaknesses. I tested alongside current GM's and others applying for GM positions. I heard very discouraging information about the company from the current GM's during our breaks. Most of them seemed to be disgruntled and overworked. They spoke of high turnover rates and poor customer service in general. Regardless of how well you do or don't do in the assessment, don't expect to hear from them. I would expect a company to at least send a prefabricated email to its applicants if they decide to go with another candidate. Especially when they spend almost $1,000 in travel expenses for the assessment. I don't believe it would've been a good fit for me.
