productive and fun workplace with a great environment

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
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 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.

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.
