Tree Sucks Customer Reviews and Feedback

From Everything.Sucks

Tree Global is an international nursery service, created to provide High-Performance Seedlings to large scale projects focused on agriculture, environmental restoration, sustainable timber, and biomass/biofuel production.

The Centre of Excellence in Cleaner Production at Curtin University prepared an Environmental Management Best Practice Guidelines for the Nursery Industry and states that, "The two most important environmental issues relating to nurseries are water use and water pollution. Humans, animals and plants (including natural environments) have a right to reasonable quantities of usable water. Licensing regulations seek to balance these needs and penalise those wasting or polluting water by any means, accidental or deliberate. Scientific analysis shows that the nursery industry impacts upon water quality through nutrient and pesticide run-off. Energy costs are significant in our industry especially in relation to irrigation through pumping costs. Air pollution and disposal, of organic and inorganic waste are also part of the equation."

Groundsman (Former Employee) says

"90 degree weather in pants. I think I had a heat stroke. Other than that it wasn't too bad. Definately a place to get a ton of hour. 80 hr weeks was the norm."

Transmission consulting utility forester (Current Employee) says

"Horrible place to work. Absolutely no structure, supervision is very minimal. They don’t care about how much experience you have, they’d rather promote their buddy’s and the ones that brown nose with little to no experience to higher positions rather than offer it to a more experienced person. Supervision has little to no interest in teaching the job correctly, instead they would rather talk behind your back and make you look bad. I would not recommend working on the Cons: Poor management and supervision"

Foreman/Operator (Current Employee) says

"The General Foreman/ Supervisor are straight up slave drivers. The other one doesn’t even Act like a supervisor. There is no control or There. A lot of favoritism. Instead of trying to encourage you they criticize you and humiliate you in front of others. Cons: A lot"

Billing Clerk (Former Employee) says

"I worked as a Billing Clerk at the corporate office in Ancaster, ON and let me say, the job description is not at all what you expect. The work was sooooo slow! I had to beg my co-workers for work, otherwise I sat idle at my desk. I didn't have a computer for two months and had to use someone else's, which was disturbing their work. I didn't even have a desk chair! They ordered one and I had to assemble it! Pathetic! Everyone just mainly helps with payroll, and not really doing what their job title is. Management is horrible!! They constantly watch over your shoulder like they don't trust you. The payroll supervisor has the biggest attitude on earth! She speaks so rudely to her staff and gave me attitude (that's one reason I don't work there anymore). Work culture is a joke. If you're one minute late, they give you a lecture. We're humans, we cannot always be perfect. Also, you're underpaid for you qualifications. Please save yourself the hassle and not work there. No one should be treated the way I did. Cons: Everything I said"

Foreman (Former Employee) says

"I worked out of the edmonton office for about 7 years. running various types of crews at times. management openly brags about the "@#$% list" of employees they treat poorly compared to the rest. raises will be dangled in front of you in order to get more production. the professionalism among the supervisors and managers was disappointing, and although D tree as a company has amazing safety procedures and protocols, production is what matters at the end of the day and if following these procedures and protocols means lower production for your crew, you might get demoted or moved to more undesirable jobs. The only savior for this particular branch of D tree is some of the outstanding UTW/ and UTT's. Many experienced, quality tree workers have opted out of the company to try to find better treatment elsewhere. Cons: production pressure, lack of safety, management, long hours"

Davey Tree Expert Company (Former Employee) says

"Everyday coming in was a mess. Never knew where you were going to be working or who you were working with. Communication is the worst here. You can work your butt off as much as you want and not see a single praise or even get noticed by managment. Co-workers were great people to work with. But ultimately everyone is out for themselves. Actual work is up and down. Somedays will be a cake walk others youre literally breaking your back. Expect to lift heavy logs into the back of a truck constantly."

Foreman Maintenance Technician/ Construction (Former Employee) says

"Not a good place to work. At"

Project Manager (Former Employee) says

"The Davey Resource Group is poorly managed to a spectacular degree. They reward incompetence and lose high value employees due to poor management and a terrible business and work culture. The pay well below industry standards and try to fool employees with false promises of benefits of employee ownership."

DZ Driver/Groundsman (Current Employee) says

"Probably one of the most awful companies I’ve worked for Cons: To many to name"

Irrigation Technician (Former Employee) says

"Too many lies not what they hire you for a lot of senior workers want to quit poor managers keep working overtime and don’t get paid all the hours you worked"

Crew Leader (Former Employee) says

"This company is the worst I ever work for they don’t respect you And also this is the worst landscaping company that I ever worked for.I would never tell anyone to work for this company that management is horrible everyone there and management are just friends and they just hang out and party and don’t care about the work Cons: None"

Utility Systems Technician (Former Employee) says

"This company is shady, they leave you in the dark on a lot of things and they do not train their employees the right way. Their managers do not follow their own company policies and regulations and they are unprofessional. Cons: Poor leadership, shady company"

Foreman (Current Employee) says

"I've been employed by Davey tree sense 2001. I've only had 2 good supervisors during that time. The lots are poorly organized and ran. It's a high school popularity contest to try to stay at that location you got assigned to. Rules and regulations are not followed, rules and specs are not followed per utility contract. Certain supervisors don't even show up they just collect they weekly salary and go to the gun shop or sit at home while they bum buddy drives they GF truck so the GPS shows they at work. Cons: Don't work for them in Florida. Poor Management and crews"

Lead Davey tree Expert Company (Current Employee) says

"Poor workmanship within company from office to feild work.No real management with any real knowledge of the feild of work they oversee. Poor management worker communication. Cons: Everything"

Client Experience Coordinator (Former Employee) says

"My experience as a "Client Experience Coordinator" (which is their term for customer service agent), was pretty awful. You are basically told that you get a 30 min lunch, no break options. If you need a day off, you have to make sure another office can cover your calls before you can take the day off and if you are sick, you are required to reach out to others offices to take the calls. Cons: Poor Vacation/Sick, 6 company holidays not including the day after Thanksgiving or Christmas Eve, insurance premiums high, short-term disability available if employee pays for it, pay scale is low, 30 min lunches with no breaks for office employees"

Operations and DRG (Former Employee) says

"Nothing but empty promises and low pay....there's a reason the arboricultural industry makes fun of Slavey, worst of the worst...expected to give your all with little compensation, extremely high turnover rates.....I wonder why? Cons: No training, old equipment....management treats you like a tool to be broken then replaced"

Groundsman/Climber (Current Employee) says

"I worked this job for about 8 months and the first month was alright. This company isn’t a good first job for anyone if you wanna have days off and have time to spend with your family, they will not take that into consideration. It’s all about production no one cares about your life outside of work or what’s going on outside of work. Cons: No time off"

Field Technician (Former Employee) says

"First.. they said i would work in my home state all year. next thing i know im flying to ohio. they changed my flight and location 3 times before i left. got to ohio and from there on was just a ball of chaos. no one knew exactly what we were doing. luckily i came from a utilities industry leader. management was awful. i had a truck i got in ohio that i told management wasnt safe. made it to michigan and lost the transmission. stuck in a cornfield for a day. after the next truck being even worse i simply flew home. stay clear. Cons: eveything"

Climber (Former Employee) says

"The management at the Livingston Tx locations is awful. Poor management; lack of respect from management; no advancement;no tools and equipment for use; Cons: Everything"

District Manager (Former Employee) says

"Worked for this so called company years as a district manager and basically new upper management came in got treated like piece of Cons: very negative experience overall on every aspect"

Current Employee - Production Supervisor says

"I have been working at Tree Top full-time Cons: Chaos, discrimination, racism, favoritism, harrassment, micro-management, among others"

Former Employee - Anonymous Employee says

"I worked at Tree Top full-time for more than 3 years Cons: It is hard to know where to begin. The leadership environment is toxic and is based largely upon a system of cronyism. If you are not one of the ordained few from the time you start with the company, you can expect any advancement to take years. You should expect that although the company will have made record profits, you will be told that you did not make the budgeted numbers. While they will admit a 10 hour day is "normal", you should expect to work between 12-16 hours a day, up to 7 days a week. Do not plan on having any sort of home life or "life outside of work". Many people within the company have given up great amounts of their lives chasing the dollar for the company only to have them chase more. The hostile work culture is not something that will change until certain key upper management figures leave or retire from the company. The fact that no one is willing to make these changes sooner is just further evidence of the fear ingrained within the company. Being berated and screamed at is the norm so you will need to ensure you have a thick skin. Although they recruit people who are new, if you are, expect to be treated as a threat to the status quo."

Current Employee - Production Supervisor says

"I have been working at Tree Top full-time for more than 3 years Cons: Unorganized upper management, do not embrace/use technology, lots of turnover, not given tools or authority to do your job, lots of back-stabbing, employees do not work well together, negative work environment, poor management styles and goal setting, lots of micromanaging. Older generation management do not like new ideas. I've been through business school and hit lots of resistance in the culture. They do not want to hear research or best practices in doing things. Walking into Treetop you will go back in time 10-15 years. Little automation in plants, mountains of paperwork, and manual employee crewing. Little communication companywide. As a production supervisor if you don't spend 60 hour per week at work you will be looked down upon and chastised. Management do not have a concept of work-life balance and balancing workloads. All employees salary and hourly are treated like a number -expense. Production supervisors do 3 jobs - Employee Secretary, Maintenance manager, and production. Too much work to do any one of those very well. Supervisor with 5 years experience I was making about $55,000"
