great staff - owners need to grow up
decent company overall but owners are flawed. the reason I say this is because in my experience I found the winter operations were run by great management but owners were detached - no presence made. I worked 21 hour snow shifts ( other workers also, longer than that at times ) while other workers ducked out early. no thank you was ever given to me and other staff that stayed until the job was complete clearing snow from the owners.
I had given three weeks notice to this company when it was time to move on and owners ignored me like children, I left without a handshake or acknowledgement of remaining through 20 hour snow shifts sometimes alone at large residential work sites. at times customers complained to me regarding lousy snow work because I was alone waiting for extra help trying to clear heavy snow from housing sites. winter was understaffed and this became a burden for the reliable core workers who did their jobs properly
I did work with great people though

Amazing Team Environment
Garden Grove is a wonderful place to work! I love my job, my coworkers, the company core values and our clients.
This is a company that cares about their staff and their customers. Both of which are very important to me.
Goals and expectations are clear and the Management team is very supportive in helping you achieve your personal goals.
With the uncertainty that came with COVID this year, the industry was identified as an essential service. Garden Grove took immediate action to implement policies and procedures that would ensure the safety of all staff. In doing so, we were able to safely service our clients from the start.
Work-Life balance this year has been a challenge with COVID. The Garden Grove Management team has been supportive, flexible and understanding throughout the past 6 months.
It is such a positive and supportive team environment. I would highly recommend.

Great Place to Work and Grow
This industry is challenging. it's challenging physically, all summer with heat - fall with leaves and clean ups and then winter being winter with cold and long days and nights being a snow fighter! But if you work hard, show initiative, have passion and pride in the work you do and in who you are, you can do extremely well!
Garden Grove is no different and presents plenty of opportunity for someone to do all of the above and grow with the company!
