The most common starting spot for an entry level employee. Groundsmen are in this position to learn the job through the use of on-the-ground training; including the sharpening of saws, roping techniques, operating and working around the various equipment, (boom truck, loader truck, chipper, chipper truck, fecon mower, stumper, etc.). Cutting as well as positioning and techniques used to make the job safer, and more efficient are staples of learning the trade.
Groundsmen typically move up at their own pace as some have more experience than others. Foremen will communicate with the supervisors as to goals and tasks mastered and accomplished on the job site and through training courses. Groundsmen are encouraged to be motivated towards learning and developing the skill set required to eventually make them a 2nd Man or Foreman within the company. Safety and attention to detail will speed up the process, as will the initiative to garner a spray license, commercial driver's license (CDL), as well as the Electrical Hazard training, Aerial Rescue Training, & Line Voltage recognition testing.
