Best move I've made!

Joining Gelderman was the best move I've made! There is a big focus on staff development and growth and they will help you to achieve your goals to get you where you want to be. There is a lot of comradery within the crews and it's fun to come to work. They offer a lot to the staff including guaranteed hours programs, RRSPS, health benefits, bonuses, overtime pay (which is rare in this industry) and a ton of employee events like BBQs. Wages are good, especially with the overtime, and more than competitive to other landscape companies. The hardest part of the job can be working in the elements, so you do have to enjoy the outdoors and the changing weather. Management is definitely reasonable and they listen to concerns and care for the team. I'd recommend working here to anyone!

Good company culture, leader in the industry

Overall, Gelderman is a really good place to work. There are opportunities to move up in your division if you're willing to work hard, the company recognizes and rewards good employees for their hard work. They invest in great trucks and equipment. The work is very demanding (goes with the industry) so it's not for everyone. Upper management does not seem to listen to or receive feedback from employees and I think this is to their detriment. There is a disconnect between upper management and crew member staff that should be resolved. Gelderman does offer good benefits and salary options for long term employees (health benefits, RRSP, salary). They also pay overtime and holiday pay that you don't usually get in landscaping, which is a bonus.

Ok place to work, management is brutal

I have nothing positive to say , the trucks are ok , management is ok, they don't pay the industry standard for people to actually make a decent living.

Pros

New equipment and they just buy or rent what you need

Cons

They don't pay the industry standard to make a decent living

Fun place to work.

Geldermans is a great company to work for. It is genuinely like one big family. Everyone takes care of each other and all levels of staff come together and work as a team. They invest in their staff and their equipment. Lots of new and high end products are constantly coming in and making our jobs easier. Human resources and my branch manager production manager are so helpful and very approachable whenever I need them.

Pros

Approachable management

Cons

Weather elements

Family like atmosphere; everyone helps to achieve common goal.

Easily one of the best places I've worked in this industry. The positive 'Can Do' attitude fostered by upper management is a great motivation tool, even on the hardest days.Working with people who are just as interested in you and your family as they are your work achievements.Nice bonuses shared throughout the company along with recognition of your efforts offering fun team building events and summer monthly BBQ's.Stands out on it's own in this industry as a place to work, grow and develop within the company.

Pros

Summer BBQ's

Cons

Long hours offset by bonuses and credit given for input of work.

Good work life balance

Option of working from home. Managers are willing to help and take the time to answer your questions or concerns. Monthly summer BBQs are a great way to see other employees! (prior to Covid)

productive workpace were some great enthusuatic employees

- generally doing new things every day to complete landscape projects that range from 1 afternoon - 5 months. - management does their best to place you on a crew with employees you have things in common with. - great daily exercise, but wears and tears the body if you aren't prepared for the labour work. - overall a great job if you love the outdoors and working in the hot summer sun!

Pros

monthly free dinners on site or at the Gelderman yard

Cons

long hours / potentially working in the rain

I would like to say not bad but not good enough

They push to get the job done which is not bad but for two guys to do a big job it is impossible I give them that and that is why they don't have much worker sorry for this but it is true

productive and fun workplace with a great environment

they provide a variety of quality services and strive to always get the job done right. they always ensure that all employees are well taken care of by providing 4 day weeks with optional over time, on hot days they provide water and once a month there is usually a bbq at the end of the day. in general due to the kind and welcoming nature of the company most if not all employees are dedicated to working hard and doing the best job they can.

Great place to work

I've worked for a handful of landscaping companies and Gelderman is the best of the bunch. Management is excellent...very accessible and easy to talk to. Co-workers are friendly, professional and good at their jobs. Pay is better than average, with excellent incentives (hourly winter premium of up to $6/hr; end of winter bonus; profit sharing). They pay OT (time-and-a-half) for any work over 44 hours in a week, which is rare in landscaping. Four day work week during the summer -- with the option of overtime if you want it -- is quite nice.

Great job and great work environment

Gelderman cares about employees and you can tell because they pay well and do a lot of safety training when you’re first hired before you start working. They’re very focused on safety and team work. You have to be in decent shape for this job but that’s normal for this indsutry. If you like working outside and want 3 day weekends then it’s a perfect job.

Pros

Focused on safety

Cons

Have to be in shape
