Is it just me or has trugreen been fertilizing when ever posible. It feel to me like they are way up on their fertilization. Do they plan to shut down early? or are they just pushing the limit of the new law?

When I worked at a familiar big company it seemed we worked hard every day. Sometimes the treatments that were supposed to be 5 weeks apart gradually crept up to 4 weeks apart. Naturally we tried to do every lawn on a street and neighborhood without driving much. I think I recall our production goal (which was the only thing that was important)...was $20,000 per week. I think we had ten people altogether.

I wouldn't acknowledge what trugreen does. yes they make money but they aren't focused on quality or anything else worth being proud of

At rue Green we had I think about 7 trucks, when they were all running; the manager and 2 office staff didn't have trucks. The sales/service truck spent the whole day doing estimates and respraying complaint problems. We averaged about a half day out of 6 for rain.
