Well foremans start at 6:30 a.m. and laborers start at 6:45 a.m. We load our 2 cycle equipment into the trucks/trailers first, then at 7 a.m. we have a group stretch lol. Then we get whatever else we need and roll out.
We are required to take a thirty minute unpaid lunch usually between 11:30 a.m. and 1:00 p.m. depending on where we are at in the day. Our branch is trying to reduce overtime by working only four 10 hours days (mon-thurs) so we usually have a three day weekend.
Once a week we also take all the mowers and change/sharpen blades, grease any necessary grease points, and wash them off. A lot more responsibility falls on the foremans, they run their one crew and have to do things like fill out service reports for each property, do mileage/service reports on the trucks daily, and usually they are the only ones spraying weeds.
They also enforce safety very much, like even doing something like spring clean ups edging and raking beds we have to wear safety glasses and we always wear safety vests.
