Groundsman in Welwyn Garden City, Hertfordshire

Avoid at all costs !
Was an employer of marks for a good 4 years all sounds good in the interview, Made to believe you will go somewhere but in reality you’ll go nowhere if your face doesn’t fit. Management & supervisors are on a power trip they’re back stabbers with no honour. Not a spine among them. You are expected to work in the freezing cold & the blazing heat without an extra 5 or ten minutes here and there to gain some energy back if your caught your out. You will also be 100% expected to work overtime especially in the summer and more so in the winter as they clear snow and spread salt god forbid you have a life out of work or a family as this does not process in their minds. They quite simply don’t give a monkeys and expect you to follow the yes men. I would personally say avoid if you can as give it a few months and you’ll be depressed looking for a new job.

Mark Walker Grounds Maintenance
I worked for Mark Walker for many years it was good to start with and just got worse over time. As some of these other reviews state it’s the kind of company if your face doesn’t fit your wanted out as such. Compulsory overtime in the summer and also in the winter a lot of reviews have missed this out. It’s a very fast paced environment and if your caught having a extra five minutes in the van your in trouble. A few people have gone back to work at the company and that’s because their face fits. I would personally avoid if you can as the ‘bad reviews’ are the truth and the good ones are the favourites. Be careful if you choose to work here.

Excellent friendly family run company
I started on the tools at an entry level job. Based on my past work experience in hard landscaping and project planting i was quickly asked if i wanted to head a big planting job of over 1300 plants at a university new build in Chelmsford. Very happy with the trust they gave and communication and support was there the whole way through without any pressure or feeling like I was chucked in the deep end.with different sites and ranges of work from mowing to line marking, and weed control to Fertilizing football pitches.every day is different and in the past if I had any issues or problems the office staff have been so accommodating and caring to find a resolution.

Professionally run with career progression
I started as a groundsman and I was given training by some really knowledgeable supervisors. After a few months I was given more trust and responsibilities at a few of the sites. I was put through my spraying license by the company which was nice and it gave me more chance to develop. I then got entrusted onnride on mowers and I felt like I wouldn't have the skills and experience I have today without a good training plan.If I had to find a negative, I would say that I struggled with a minority of the groundsman on the team. They often seemed negative and always questioned what was asked, sometimes this spread amongst the team but those people often moved on elsewhere eventually.
