I worked at TruGreen full-time (less than an year)

Pros

Good people, good training in the field and in the office. Awesome sales compensation, I've seen salesmen at this company make more than realtors. They used to utilize telemarketing but have evolved from that, which is good. They also pay field sales reps' fuel expenses.

Cons

During the interview process, it was not made clear to me in any way, shape, or form, that they utilized cold-call telemarketing, but they dropped that process. Training and sales floor support was also kind of lackluster.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep moving away from telemarketing. There are ways to get customers to you instead of you to them, and you made the right first move.

    Pros

    I have been Given every opportunity to grow in this company. Yes i have worked a lot of hours but if you want to make real money you have to work real hard. I love meeting people every day and not just selling them service but making a Friend. If you are coming to this place for the base pay and mileage I beg you go work some where else.

    Cons

    Should pay a little more per mile

    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.
