    Much better now that Trugreen is no longer under the thumb of ServiceMaster.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsThe people here are wonderful. Coming to work each day and knowing that there are a handful of really wonderful people who you can count on day in and day out to help get the big tough projects completed is a blessing.

    ConsConstant struggle from the business to make a decision. Things are changing on the fly, regardless of how IT can accommodate, and sometimes after the fact. The constant threat and worry of losing your job due to being sold is the biggest issue right now.

    Advice to Senior ManagementCompensate and reward your hard workers appropriately. Don't reward the members who just do the bare-minimum to collect a paycheck. Always remember the rule of "Value Add" - too many things are done on the fly that cost our company $$$ that have very little Value Add.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Auditor/Customer Service Representative

    Sales Auditor (Former Employee)
    Memphis, TN

    ProsEstablished company.
    Learn a lot about lawncare & horticulture.
    Enjoyed the people I worked with in the office.

    ConsWorked long hours on Saturday doing A/R collection & sale audit calls.
    Every Fall they do "temporary" seasonal layoffs and only call selective employees to return the following year.
    Customer retention was difficult and short lived.
    At a desk and on the phone your entire day of work.
    Yearly bonuses and advancement opportunity in either position is small.

    Advice to Senior ManagementCustomer classification/organization is needed badly for salesman. They call the same people every week trying to sell them the services. It puts a bad taste in possible future customers mouth because we are constantly bugging them to setup or upgrade service.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    I have been with Trugreen for 10 years

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    Memphis, TN

    ProsA lot of tenured employees

    ConsShort term thinking by management finds them being reactive instead of pro active.

    great company, fantastic experience

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    Memphis, TN

    ProsTruGreen has been an amazing company to work for. I have had so many opportunities to develop professionally. My boss is constantly challenging me with new projects in order to expand my skill set.

    ConsIn the past few years, there has been a lot of change in upper management and the company has shifted in its direction a few times which can make work challenging at times

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Worst Job/Work I Ever Had

    Lawn Specialist (Former Employee)
    Memphis, TN

    Prosit is better than no job at all

    ConsLong days, asked to do wrong things to customers just to get your day done. Management treats you like you are of no value except for the money you are asked to bring in each day. The company has a christian message, but Christ is not in this company. All the equipment is in need of repair, and you are the one expected to repair it. The turn over is so high that some customers lawns are never going to get better because the newbe doesn't care. The training isn't that complete so you are learning on the go. and I could go on and on and on.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Not a long term career

    Door to Door Sales Representative (Current Employee)
    Memphis, TN

    ProsIt's a good mix of different experiences. You're taught to be self motivated and how to overcome objections well. If you can succeed in this career than you can succeed in any sales position. Good benefits.

    ConsWorking over 50 hours a week with no overtime pay. Constant fear of losing job. Poor motivation tactics by management. Sales for lawn treatments are seasonal so everyone except for upper level management is laid off in December.

    Advice to Senior ManagementI suggest being more upfront with how temporary this job is. Also, requirements are constantly raised while sales opportunities decreased. Training is also way underdeveloped.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
