2. What are some reasons why you have chosen to stay at LandCare for so long?
Juan Carlos: I am happy here. I like my job, and I like the people I work with. I also like it because I have known many of the people I work with for a very long time and we are all like a family here.

6. How has being a part of LandCare impacted your life?
Juan Carlos: Working at LandCare makes my life better because it helps me provide and I get to do a job I truly enjoy all week long. Since I have been here a long time I am a role model for my team and I get the opportunity to teach people many different things and to help them learn, which is great. This company is like my family, I have known all the guys for a very long time. We had a pizza party at my branch to celebrate my 30 years of service and everyone applauded for me and congratulated me. I felt really appreciated. Being able to help organizations like HMHB in our everyday work is so rewarding and part of the reason I love working here.
Joel: Working at LandCare allows me to keep everything stable. It is steady and something I look forward to everyday. Monday is actually my favorite day of the week because it means I get to go back to work. I just heard that we had a good meeting with one of our big clients and they really like the quality of work we have been doing. Stuff like that is always awesome to hear because it’s really motivating and rewarding.
