Behind the scenes and insider information for landscaping careers and green industry jobs.

If somebody offered you free money for your future, would you take it?
How about if they offered to pay for half of your health insurance premium costs to protect you and your family?

Sometimes a good deal isn’t too good to be true. It’s actually a good deal.

If you work at Level Green Landscaping, now is a great time to take advantage of the benefits the company offers.

Two new regional manager positions at Level Green Landscaping reflect the company’s continued growth as they look ahead to an expanding footprint in the industry.

Joey Schneider and Kevin Doleman will focus on training and development for team members and increasing efficiency, says Paul Wisniewski, Division Manager at Level Green and the manager who hired for the new positions.

Have you ever bought something? Jordon Foss might have sold it to you.

He started his sales career at age 19 and has sold watches, solar panels, real estate, and pest control. He’s waited tables at restaurants and tended bar.

Now he’s a business development manager at Level Green Landscaping.

You’ll have to look elsewhere for that watch or new house.

But if you need your company’s landscaping to wow, Jordon can set you up.

When you start a job at Level Green Landscaping, start thinking about the next job up.

If you want to grow your career here, there’s plenty of help.

Branch manager James Kole is a great example.

“I was the new guy on the block,” he says. “Now I’ve been here forever.”

Well, nine years. It kind of flew by.

Kole started at Level Green in 2012 as a supervisor, straight from Pennsylvania State University with a major in landscape contracting and a minor in horticulture.

Level Green is kind of known for its feasts.

Savory Mexican chicken and rice in warm tortillas. Sizzling burgers and grilled kielbasa. Sweet home-baked coffee cake and banana bread.

Team members have long gathered at parks and beaches, or at tables in their own buildings, filling their plates with delicious food and their souls with the nourishment that comes from camaraderie and good conversation.

The landscaping industry has been struggling with a labor shortage for the past few years, and lately, it’s even more of a struggle to find good workers.

Companies like Level Green Landscaping are competing with lots of other employers looking for good workers, says Doug Delano, co-founder and managing partner at Level Green.

“We hired a full-time recruiter, but we’re still having issues,” he says. “Everybody’s in the same boat. Everybody’s looking for people.”

Customers, please be patient with us.

“We’re not getting things done as quickly,” Delano says. “We’re getting grass cut, but you may not get your mulch as quickly. It’s taking longer to get to enhancements.”

Meanwhile, if you know a hard worker looking for a good job, send them our way.

Pay is around $15/hr, with no experience necessary.

“We’re averaging 50-55 hours a week right now, so you can make decent money at $15 an hour, plus overtime,” Delano says. “We’re a growing company, so we have a significant amount of work.”
