Building and Grounds Cleaning and Maintenance - What's Hot


What’s Hot: It’s a jungle out there as landscaping dominates the focus of the top paying positions in the Building and Grounds Cleaning and Maintenance group with First-Line Supervisors of Landscaping, Lawn Service and Grounds-keeping Workers” (MAW at $48,790) topping the list and Tree Trimmers and Pruners ($37,310) and Pesticide Handlers, Sprayers and Applicators, Vegetation ($35,720) coming in at third and fourth, respectively. The runner-up on the Best Paid list: First-Line Supervisors/Managers of Housekeeping and Janitorial Workers ($41,240).
