Doesn't Recommend
Negative Outlook
No opinion of CEO

I worked at TruGreen full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Good healthcare packages.
Can make good commission if your route is good.
Equipment is well maintained and clean.

Cons

Physically demanding, but not paid accordingly.
Demanding hours and deadlines.
Goals are unrealistic and you are usually fighting to meet them in 50 hours work

Advice to Management

Reduce the weekly goals, promote safety on the job beyond equipment (stress, heat, exhaustion, etc.), more incentives and less bull, and more opportunity for a personal touch with written reports without the backlash of lost money.

    Pros

    The training on how to sell is really good. They have stepped it up from past years with an official ATA training seminar that lasts a week. So basically if you wanna get trained on how to sell use TruGreen to learn and then take your skills else where... i actually used some of the selling advice that TruGreen offered in my interview for the next job i was applying for and they were pretty impressed

    Cons

    The con is that almost everybody has been pissed off by TruGreen so its not an easy task trying to sell their product. The hours are horrible and they treat you like a child.. they basically plant a GPS device on you and watch you every step of you day. After the training is over its strictly sales driven and forget getting any help from anyone besides the lame role playing you do every single morning

    Advice to Management

    Learn how to not act so "corporate" and actually listen to your employee's issues and maybe they will respond to you better!
