LAWN SPECIALIST $19 PER Hour. March 1 start. Print
Employer: Lone Oak Lawn Care
Location: Tea (Sioux Falls), SD 57064
Employment Type: Full Time


Send resume or letter if you are qualified.  We are looking for two more team members.

If you enjoy outdoor work and can work with minimal supervision, this may be the job for you.  If you are teachable, experience isn't necessary as we will train the right individual.  Having education in a related area and being licensed for pesticide application is a plus but most people have little difficulty obtaining the license.  Starting pay is $19 per hour plus overtime after 40 hours.  Last year specialists made $40,000 or more in eight months plus unemployment compensation in the off season.  You will be joining a team of six other specialists plus a working manager.  

Duties include loading and mixing products, making fertilizer and pesticide applications to home and business lawns, explaining the service to prospects, answering questions and keeping equipment and uniforms clean and well maintained.  Equipment used includes pick-up trucks, trailers, push and ride-on lawn spreaders, sprayers and aerators.  Sales is low-key with minimal phone work and no boiler room or unethical selling.  Being helpful, considerate and willing to help customers achieve their goals is most important.  Most work is done with modern ride-on spreaders but must be able to lift a 50 pound bag and use a push spreader.  

Must be mature, able to get to work on time every day, honest, have good verbal and written communication skills, basic math skills and a professional appearance. Most duties will be outdoors in typical South Dakota weather.  Must have a valid drivers license with a decent driving record and be able to obtain a South Dakota commercial pesticide applicators license.  Having a positive, enthusiastic attitude and willingness to please customers is very important.  A mature supportive spouse and a family life free of drama is a huge, huge plus.  

Typical work day is 11 hours but may be longer or shorter if weather or work load dictates.  Work week is often influenced by weather and includes Saturdays as necessary but we try to reduce the number of Saturdays in late May, June and July if possible.  We don't work Saturday if we don't have to but Saturday should be considered a regular work day.  Busiest time is typically from late March to Mid May and late August through October.  This is a seasonal business lasting from the beginning of March to late October with winter layoff.  We give a re-hire date so winter job search has not been required to collect unemployment benefits.  Must be willing to commit to working through the end of the season.  Any potential conflicting commitments must be discussed before hiring.  

Applicants are subject to background check and drug testing.  Because making a good impression is essential when meeting customers we have policy of no tobacco use and require a professional appearance.

Location is near I-29 Tea exit 73.
