Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
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.

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

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

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

AMAZING place to work!!

Gelderman has been a great company to work for as you can expect competitive pay for the industry, and a work environment that is respectful and enjoyable. If you work hard you will be rewarded with bonuses, promotions, and raises. Pay is based on experience so there is definitely an opportunity to get raises. Management has always been very respectful towards employees and are never condescending or rude, and will get you to train on new equipment that you don’t know so that you can advance your skills. Higher up management like the owner of the company is also involved and takes time to meet employees so there is definitely a team mentality and you feel valued no matter what your level in the company. Definitely a company that I would recommend to others as an awesome place to work!

Pros

4 Day weeks all summer, Great work culture

Not to be a trusted company

Worked here for two years, was promised various different things from moving up in the company, performance based raise, training for certificates and training purposes. None of that came to completion. Once a person starts making more money, you become expendable and too expensive. They will lie to you about moving up in the company. You should buy into our team culture, but they don't have a team mentality at all. Issues are never dealt with professionally or appropriately. I would not recommend this company to work for, or recommend for customers looking for a company to maintain their property.

Poor managment and leadership

I was here for two years they promised a lot of growth within the company. They seemed like a great company to start with, but then realized it was totally different. Unfilled promises, they could let go someone before they were to pay them their bonuses. Double standard with behaviour within crew leaders and crew members. HR is very rude and unprofessional. Watch out because HR doesn't have your back as an employee, will miscommunicate to management about issues. Only has the company in mind and not the employees that serious issues that need to be resolved. That's why this company has poor management and leadership to move forward. Zero to no benefits for full time employees. Anyone who wants a serious job/career in the landscape industry do not apply here.

unprofessional

Poor management from top to bottom. They show favouritism. You are just a number and not a person with a voice. Quality of work is very poor. Customers complain a lot about this company whether it's the actual services that they provide or the staff that they have running this company. So be aware when applying.

Very enjoyable place to work , quality equipment , fair wages , quality work.

Gelderman's is a great company to work for . Everybody is very friendly , caring , kind and compassionate from the CEO to the general labourers. This company cares about you and wants you to succeed in every aspect of the job and your life for that matter . Gelderman's does a lot things that other companies don't do or don't care about doing. Whether its appreciation BBQ's , Spring and Fall kickoffs , payed overtime or payed holidays they are always looking to be better for their employees . Gelderman's treats everybody with care and respect regardless of who you are . They do quality work , pay fair wages and always listen to employee concerns . I am very happy to be a part of the Gelderman team and encourage anyone looking for a career in landscape to apply and join the Gelderman team.

Bad attitude workers.

The complaining never stops. “Why does this guy make more than me when we’re doing the same job” Too many employees think they’re the boss. Hours cut back so there’s no over time unless you want to drive 1 hr to another city. Other companies pay the same with no games with your pay check/hours.
