    I worked at Clarke Environmental full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    - Ability to be cross-trained on different crews (I alternated between bike crew and backpack crew)
    - Great ease of logging hours worked, as well as many options to work many hours at various time of the day
    - Good people to work with and the work is something that people appreciate you doing
    - Work is evenly distributed within crews and is able to be reallocated if necessary
    - Environmentally conscious company

    Cons

    - Weeks around summer holidays can get busy (especially if college students have started heading back to school)
    - Inclement weather is detrimental to getting anything done
    - Similarly, there may be very little to do if the weather is chilly and people aren't outside/there are few mosquitos

    Pros

    Awesome staff, good pay, commission (don't say anything)

    Cant really think of any cons. Except to try to reflect the company culture more on the staff/hiring process

    Advice to Management

    Try to micromanage more and reward your employees

    Pros

    A lot of fun if you like nature and atv's.

    Cons

    Working the graveyard shift. This company is not a company I would look to stay long term. Just a fun temporary job.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work.

    I worked at Clarke Environmental part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great Pay. Enjoyed the environment and the people. Paid training and it was a nice job to show up to. Stopped working only because the season ended.

    Cons

    Didn't work in the rain. Since we sprayed repellent, we didn't work while it was raining or gong to rain. Usually not an issue but sometimes when we get bad weather for extended times it put a damper on pay.

    Pros

    Good steady industry, great customers, and great employees.

    Cons

    Many management turnovers. Top managers not always in-touch with employees or industry.

    I worked at Clarke Environmental full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    As a former Field Technician the only pro I can think of is having Fridays off.

    Cons

    Where to begin. The pay is a pathetic $10/hr to start for getting eaten alive by mosquitoes all day, trudging through swamp land and densely wooded forests and avoiding poison ivy. Not to mention driving your own vehicle racking upwards of 80 to 100 miles each day and tons of wear and tear that Clarke won't cover. The measly mileage reimbursement won't even cover all of your gas, so be prepared to pony up your own cash to cover fuel expenses. The optional medical coverage is a joke! I wish I never opted for it. I could have saved that money and bought a summer's worth of band-aids and aloe. If you have half a brain then this is not the company for you.

    Advice to Management

    Why not raise the mileage reimbursement and the minimum hourly rate? Oh, I forgot..... the Clarke fat cats need to pay for their mansions and BMWs off the backs of the plebes working for them.

    Pros

    Great people! Best job in my career. Awesome team of hardworking, passionate, purpose driven people.

    Cons

    No overwhelming downsides here. Sure there are flaws and challenges - there are anywhere. What I really appreciate & respect through is that the company continues to strive to be better in all areas and engages the whole team in the process
