    I have been working at Asplundh full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    The work can be challenging at times. Getting use to working close to the power lines can be a bit nerve wracking. But overall if you work with a good crew the experience is great.

    Cons

    Low pay and long hours with sub-par equipment can get frustrating. Unrealistic time expectations shifts the focus from safety to production.

    Advice to Management

    Understand the actual amount of time needed to put safety first. Time is money but money can not replace lives.

    I worked at Asplundh

    Pros

    work outdoors, work with good people, relocation to anywhere in the U.S. and to some other countries, decent benefits package

    Cons

    some of the foremen should not be foremen for lack of competance and experience. There are some long hours involved when storms come in. constantly work in hazardous conditions

    Advice to Management

    make better decisions about who is made a foreperson, pay rate leaves something to be desired due to the nature of the work
