    Solid starter job, but….

    Aug 9, 2022 - Lawn Care Specialist in Johnstown, PA
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Paid every Friday, weekends off (some Saturdays) and holidays off.

    Cons

    Pay isn’t good for the work you put in ,eventually you will see this. Season ends in October and begins in march , you you are collecting unemployment. You never know what your gonna get for work on a daily basis, you could have 20 stops one day and the next day have 30 and could be in a totally different part of the state. Equipment is mostly faulty depending on what branch you work at so if something happens to your hose which is your main tool, then you have to push a push-spreader, which makes things more physically exhausting, get sun burnt , rained on and even snowed on at times in the beginning of season. Branch manager will add stops to your order without asking at times and will make your day a little longer. Must service own trucks at times .
