from some of you who have become very successful in the landscape business, not the lucky guy who cuts grass all day. -not that there's anything wrong with that. say you are branching into another state and hiring someone to be your branch manager/sales rep. what do you expect the most from this person? I know the basics i think. represent the company the very best all day every day as if it were your own. i'm a landscape operation management student and i'm doing a good bit of residential rip out and design on my own, but i have accepted a position with a huge company, one that gross millions and millions of dollars and i am scared shirtless even though i have been in the business for a long time and this is my big break. still i am nervous. i would like for anyone to post the things you look for in your company's right hand man. i think i am going to do great things with this firm and finally get the chance to showcase my talent and make a good living while not having the stress associated with being the owner.
