Area Manager
in Pikesville, MD

"If you were hired into management and never worked in the field, handle your expectations of production vs. satisfied customers with care. It is easy to sacrifice quality for quantity. If you have worked in the field, remember what it was like to bust your butt and get as close to daily goal as possible only to get berated and put down about coming up short when you get back to the office."

Area Manager
in Upland, CA

"Are you desperate for work?"

What do you like about working at TruGreen?

"This was the worst company of my 32-year work history. TruGreen is not about the green of landscape, but instead about the green of the money coming in, because that is all that matters to them."

What don't you like about working at TruGreen?

"It was not bad before the company I worked for was bought by TruGreen, but once TruGreen took control, it became a matter of profit over everything else, and all of my clients suffered due to it. People did not matter to this company. Their value was only based on the dollars they bought in."

What suggestions do you have for management?

"Stop trying to manage the landscape department like you do ChemLawn. What works for one does not work for the other."
