As a former employee of Fit Turf I know all the ins and outs of this garbage company. First off they say they use "golf course grade" fertilizer on your lawn. LIE. Fit turf uses the dirt cheapest fertilizer available in bulk quanity. They say they add a sticker agent to their weed control to "help" the weeds die quicker. LIE. Sticker agents add more cost to production and the owner definately will not have that. Fit turf sends out marketing mailers with free applications promised and free this and free that. Guess what...You're getting nothing for free from these guys. What they do is tell you your getting it free and 5-6 months later (after you forget) a rep will call you and SELL you a bs application that you probably didnt need or want to begin with. And over and over and over and over. Before you know it some smooth talker like myself will have milked you for well, who knows maybe a grand by the years end.
Fit Turf is a marketing machine that happens to do lawn care. You've probably got a phone call or more like 500 calls from them. The owner whos already a 20 million + millionaire just cant get enough. He spent over 40,000.00 on a super high tech dialer that calls over 700 people per second...Seems a bit much huh? There were times when someone forgot to turn it off and it called repeatedly all night and day over the weekend. And you never know its them because they change the caller id on the dialer multiple times a day (to a disconeccted number) to ensure you dont know who it is. I almost forgot the first thing we said to every customer was a lie! "Were a small local company". Fit Turf is not small at all and definately not local, well not when i was there. We were calling from Detroit and saying we were local. LIE!
Last but not least..If you make the mistake of working for this greedy lying company expect this. NO benefits, 2 sick days a year..YES 2. No paid vacation ever. Also being that i WAS the best salesman in that company i got screwed the most. They say you get commissions after the work is done and the customer has paid. I never got any kind of reports or anything detailing how my commissions were being paid. I was just supposed to trust them. HAHAHA! The jokes on me and everyone else I worked with besides the owners daughters boyfriend who of course got special treatment. When i was "let go" i had sold over 250,000.00 of scheduled work. Yes i had the biggest paycheck there and when Paul the owner of the compay saw that my commissions were actually getting to where I thought they should be i was let go. You see Fit Turf hires people in, pays them barely enough to get by, promises them the world then when the season starts to slow down and you cant sell like you did earlier in the year. BYE BYE! And guess where all your commissions and hard work go...Right into PAUL WAGNERS POCKET(The Owner). The strange thing is that when i was let go..I had just sold over 40.000.00 worth of upsells (Perimeter Pest Control & Bed/Border services) both of which are complete bs services they dont work and unfortunately the b&b service ended with most customers left with dead gardens.
The salesman the technicians even the CUSTOMERS mean nothing to this company. All that matters is NUMBERS NUMBERS NUMBERS! Quality is not in their vocabulary AT ALL. So while Paul drives his fancy european sports cars and brags about his millions, myself and the other 8 people here in Michigan who were let go can now find their way at the unemployment office. The company is SCUM, the owner is SCUM and if you want a mediocre if not terrible looking lawn go ahead and call fit turf.
