I worked at Scotts Lawn Service full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

Work at your own pace.

Minimal micro-management.

Work outside.

Can make commission.

Learn about lawn care and maintenance.

Cons

Rain or shine, sleet or snow, you are going out.

Seasonal.

Weather.

Have to make up for lacking Techs.

6 day work week.

Crooked overtime pay scale.

No room for growth.

Under prices lawns being sold to meet goals.

Advice to Management

Fire the Techs who can't make their goals, and stop making the ones who do produce have play catch up.

Don't stop providing water in the middle of the summer.

Set more realistic expectations for the customer. Nobody has a golf course after 2-3 treatments.

Pay employees the correct overtime rate.
