    Pros

    Good company to work for, great people. They take care of their employees. I love my job. Perfect amount of cut throat and helpful.

    Cons

    If you aren't cut out for a results driven job this is not for you. You will not be able to just clock in and clock out and do a mindless task all day.

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

    Pros

    Steady Paycheck through the spring & summer.
    401k Match & Benefits
    Zombie desk job
    Better pay than most low paying jobs

    Cons

    Company doesn't actually care about you, HUGE overturn, Horrible hours & not understanding of time off for family events or being sick, Zombie desk job,
    Not promised a raise after the 90 days as stated upon hire nor at the 1 year mark and Training is horrible

    Advice to Management

    Train better. The trainers just whiz through the information as if it's something you already have information on and expect you to get to your desk and be able to do it.
