Gives employees opportunities to move up the ladder and excel. Within 6 months of employment I went from a sales auditor to an Office Supervisor.

Cons

Corporate rules and policies tend to change without caution!

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

    Pros

    Good people, good training in the field and in the office. Awesome sales compensation, I've seen salesmen at this company make more than realtors. They used to utilize telemarketing but have evolved from that, which is good. They also pay field sales reps' fuel expenses.

    Cons

    During the interview process, it was not made clear to me in any way, shape, or form, that they utilized cold-call telemarketing, but they dropped that process. Training and sales floor support was also kind of lackluster.

    Advice to Management

    Keep moving away from telemarketing. There are ways to get customers to you instead of you to them, and you made the right first move.

    I worked at TruGreen full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good sales training if you get hooked up with the right Sales Manager. They will make you a one stop closing machine if you listen to them.

    Cons

    6 day work weeks pretty much year round. You have to "win" a three day holiday weekend. They strap you to a GPS radio that they can see your every move and will talk to you about it EVERY night you come back to the office to the point they even have the nerve to check your fingernails to see if they are dirty or not!!!. 11am-10pm work days Saturdays 9-possibly 6pm. You will be required to knock in "no-soliciting" neighborhoods. You WILL get rousted by police at least 2-3 times a month for knocking on doors. Commission against Draw Comp plan. If you go negative in commission you still get your meager draw but that negative commission follows you all year long unless you can make it up by some miracle. Only 2 people out of 12 actually can hit or zero out their commission. RSM are all about the numbers and could give a crap about customer service. Divisional Sales Managers hate the RSM's and make fun of them and the GM's constantly.

    Advice to Management

    Go back to paying a salary + commission and stop the revolving door of sales reps. Selling insulation during the offseason is NOT the answer to layoffs. Let the reps sell lawn care year round not ceiling insulation in Florida. Get the RSM's and Divisional Sales Managers on the same playbook and stop hoodwinking each other. Stop making the Company seek nothing but numbers and focus a little on the customer.
