I have been working at TruGreen full-time

Pros

Very detailed and in-depth application process. Questions on the application leads you to think they value certain management/supervisory styles.

Cons

Third party employment service are rarely effective at weeding out the RIGHT candidates. Doesn't seem TruGreen actually reviews applicants until after the computer weeds out the riff-raff. Seems a bit too in-depth for this type of job.

Advice to Management

    I have been working at TruGreen (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great relationship with customers, pride in ownership of your route, good exercise, good salary and overtime, excellent medical insurance

    Cons

    Excessive hours, terrible sales from the call center mean I have to work 5 times as hard to gain customers' trust and resell our service. "Digital marketing" is a joke. You can not sell lawn care properly without actually seeing the lawn you are trying to sell (get rid of Google Earth and send sales reps to properties to sell properly). Poor balance of work/family time. We are supposed to work 4 11 hour shifts a week but now we are working 5 days to hit our revenue goal.You always have to work more hours and wear yourself out because the company wants more, more, more production. Sometimes I don't even get home until 7:30-8:00 at night, after arriving before 7:00 am! Overtime is good, but I am worn out! You can not make spontaneous plans with family or friends, ever. Trugreen owns you.

    Advice to Management

    Try to care about the well-being and happiness of your branch level employees for a change!! If you quit treating them like liabilities and start treating them like valuable assets, you will be amazed at how much harder they will work for you! As hard as it is for you to believe, the 'little people' are who make it possible for you corporate bigwigs to enjoy your lifestyle. Try treating us with decency and respect once in a while, and you will be rewarded. Also, invest more money into operations (branch level) instead of putting all of your money into marketing.

    I have been working at TruGreen full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The training is good, most of the employees have been there for a while. They do a lot of small things to reward there employees, suchas free gift cards, they buy lunch at least once or twice a month. Morale is good, open communication with employees.

    Cons

    Only the old school reps & employees get the best leads & incoming calls requesting service the easy sales, no wonder they are number 1. Which makes it hard to hit your weekly goal. Techs & even managers & other office employees compete with the sales reps, everyone sells. The hours are horrible 12-9pm M-F, Sat 9am -5am, work & life balance is bad . Benifits are high deductibles & expensive.

    Advice to Management

    Spread the good leads evenly & more fairly, Don't give the new reps the crappy hard leads. Hrs should be 10-6 m-f, & sat 10-2. Rotate every other weekend & give a day off during the week, so employees can handle business or make doctors appointments. Jjjjj
