Current Employee - Lawn Specialist in Sacramento, CA

I have been working at TruGreen full-time

Pros

Very detailed and in-depth application process. Questions on the application leads you to think they value certain management/supervisory styles.

Cons

Third party employment service are rarely effective at weeding out the RIGHT candidates. Doesn't seem TruGreen actually reviews applicants until after the computer weeds out the riff-raff. Seems a bit too in-depth for this type of job.

    I have been working at TruGreen full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Can't think of one that I cannot off set with a con

    Cons

    The company is structures so the "fat cats make all the money and the worker bees get whats left (the meager leftovers) I have never worked for a company that has such a high turnover rate. More people have quit than we actually have on staff. The job description is misleading. The company does not allow employees to have a work/life balance. The magic wand that was waved before my eyes showed me the company through rose colored glasses. When the blinders came off I was shell shocked. I had a life, now I am a TruGreen slave.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat employees as human beings, not machines. It may suprise you but we get tired, frustrated and down right irritated. I am not a TruGreen minion, I am a Human Being, a man, flesh and blood. Heck even a machine gets some down time. You can't wind us up and expect us to be energizer bunnies every day. Even the bunny's batteries eventually run down.

    Pros

    Good Pay. The hourly is not bad. And, there is the opportunity to earn good income. As long as you don't mind working through all the bad things first.

    Cons

    Unorganized. Start from the bottom of the bottom.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Less micromanagement. An employee is much more likely to take advice from someone that he doesn't feel is just another employee in the bunch.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Positive Outlook
    Approves of CEO
