Awesome Job, But low pay

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Overall I had a very positive experience with this company as a Lawn Technician. Management is very supportive and helpful as well as awesome coworkers. You get lots of exercise as you cover on average of 45 properties a day and you work independently and at your own pace with no micro management. The only con with this company is the low pay for the amount of labor required you only get paid minimum wage or very little above it and yes you get a production bonus but that varies month to month. I will also point out that the add on indeed falsely advertised the pay. On the add it said you will earn $700-$800 a week, which did not happen as I was only making minimum wage.

Pretty laid back place to work

It's a great job because your bosses trust you to get the job done, no one is staring over your shoulder the entire day. The work is very independent and you're on your own in the truck all day. If you're behind on your work one day someone will always come help you so everyone finishes around the same time each day. I really enjoyed how laid back the management was and how everyone helped each other out. It was also great that it is Monday-Friday starting early in the morning so we finished work early afternoon with lots of time left in the day to have a personal life. Downside would be that some days you can be driving from one end of the city to the other so half your day is just driving and every now and then your day can be 9+ hours long but it doesn't happen that often.

Pros

Good hours, Relaxed management, pay is pretty fair

Cons

working in the heat, some days can be long

Good place to work, friendly staff and great management.

If you like working outside this could be the job for you. This job is fairly simple and independent, you service the lawns by yourself with your assigned van and equipment. If you need help or advice the supervisor is just a call away.

Pros

Piece work Good management Weekends off

Cons

Work pants in hot weather

Good work place, work mostly on properties by yourself, sometimes teamed up with others depending on what job you're in.

Worked in lawn fertilization and weed control. Cover up to 25 properties in a day working on your own. Must work at a very fast pace to make money. Long hot days are the worst but have to get all the customers donevyou can or it builds up on you and just gets worse. Best part of the job is seeing the improvements you've done to a property after very few applications...,very rewarding and working outside is great most or the time. No money on rain days, or showing for work and being sent home with no pay is the definate downer.

Pros

Working on your own, rewarding job, great support, keeps you in shape, working on many beautiful properties throughout the Okanagan.

Cons

Long hours on really hot days can be taxing. No pay on rain days.

The company is small and not bad to work at but the training is very poor and the organization and communication between everyone that cause delays and problems with everything.

Pros

Work alone, Easy work

Cons

Poor communication, no lunch or breaks

Great team and work environment. Great supervisors - you learn a lot.

Arrive at shop at 7 or 7:30, you are partnered up and you drive out to your job site to start installation. Days can go late until 5-7 or end early around 1-3 - depends on the day. Great culture, new project everyday, very engaging. Great Supervisors.

Diverse work with great staff

Lots of things to learn in the landscape business. You start off with different crews and you end up on the one that suits you the best. From aeration to laying stone, you will come out of there with good knowledge. The foremans and workers and great, and there always seems to have a good laugh. Very organized company!

Pros

Steady work, not too overwhelming, breaks in between jobs. Working outside!

Cons

Pay could be better, but its a great summer job for students.

try to make the employees feel like family but life expectancy at the company is short

you may feel like everything is going great with the company until you get close to your three months then you are let go. You would start your day with a standard boards and list of things to do and then half of them will either be cut or not able to do and if your day is short they wont have much else for you to do.

Great summer job!

Very good work for anybody physically active, self motivated, organized and able to deal with the upset customer now and then. Only bad thing is weather-dependence.

Productive and fun workplace

The summer season is busy, May and June when people are looking for lawncare. Later in the summer is less busy, and there is more time for team building activities. You learn more about lawncare than you think you will ever know!
