    Scam Alert

    Aug 30, 2018 - Arborist in New York, NY

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Higher than average starting salary

    Cons

    They told me I would be working at a particular location for one month and then transferring, but then said I would have to stay for ten months so that they could use the money in their budget so their funding would not get cut. I accepted the job on this condition due to an extremely long commute of about 2.5 hours each way. I do not believe that they had any intention of transferring me and were hoping I would accept what had happened. Since I felt I had been scammed, I chose to end my employment.

    Great company, consistent work

    Oct 22, 2019 - Foreman in Arlington, VA
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    This will differ office to office, but ours has a focus on safety, progressing in trade, and quality of work. Weekly safety tailgates are helpful, employees get rewarded periodically with training opportunities and gift cards, and there is year round work.

    Cons

    Get a bunch of tree guys together and you're going to have vulgarity, lack of professionalism, etc. Long hours because of the incentive to hit time and a half. Working in the winters.
