      Pros

      The sole positive aspect of this horrible job is that you have the option to work remotely.

      Cons

      Incompetent managers, low wages, horrid customers, forced overtime, outdated computer system... the list goes on. This is the absolute WORST job I have ever had in my entire life. After two years working here with perfect attendance, never being late, and consistently being a top performer in my branch, I was granted a $0.35 raise. There is an extremely high turnover rate, so they are constantly hiring new employees. Guess what? You get to train them without any kind of a pay raise and they will deny you the use of your PTO so that you can be available to train these new employees. They constantly want/expect more and more from you without any increase in compensation, and it is disgusting. I can almost understand why all of the customers are so consistently unpleasant. It is because the "services" offered by Trugreen are very poor. No wonder every customer you have to speak with is in a terrible, confrontational mood!

      You don’t have a life outside of work

      Pros

      They have good pay and a good amount of overtime if that’s what you are looking for in a job or need the money.

      Cons

      They(Management) treat you like a number, like you’re easily replaceable, like you’re a robot and can do whatever they want for however long they want. They don’t care about your safety, well being or your life outside of work. Most weeks are 55-70 hour weeks. They are only worried about revenue and don’t actually care about you or their customers. They make you work in all kinds of weather conditions. They get mad if you have to call out for any reason. Honestly, just not a place where you feel important or valued. The money doesn’t make it worth it.

      Pros

      It was really rewarding to make lawns look great. I liked the physical activity. Cool trucks to drive. Great boss

      Cons

      Not ideal for a career. Too many lawns in a day. Extreme work environments. Heavy negative feedback. Winter layoffs. Toxic chemicals

      Pros

      Overtime. Management is nice to workers. They treat employees right. Only have to work 4 days a week and get unemployment during off season.

      Cons

      Low pay is the biggest problem with trugreen. With overtime it's ok but definitely not great. The job is hard work and your working with hazardous chemicals all day.

      Pros

      At one point, we got free lawn care. I don’t know if they do that anymore. People are nice, and the specialists do respectable work.

      Cons

      While the pay is above minimum wage, it’s not high paying by any means, unless you a big wig.

      Pros

      Freedom to do what you want most the time Working outside Good exercise, especially while using granular spreader Culture of respect between management and employees No repercussions for poor quality of work due to lack of employees Easy to make sales commission Easy to make friends with coworkers and management Not a bad job if you can just do granular applications or tree shrub work

      Cons

      Pesticides will slowly kill you, long hours, bad pay, angry customers, shady business practices, poor incentives and benefits. Trucks have no AC but the company has money to put new cameras to watch your every move while operating? Treating 35-45 lawns a day can take its toll on your health. Broken outdated equipment, dangerous working conditions. Dishonest salespeople, scamming customers Spraying chemicals that can kill you and cause blindness if mishandled, always read the labels on the products you are using, ask your manager to show you what's in the mix
