Shadowing a Senior Account Manager

This week I got the opportunity to shadow Scott Barnes who is a Senior Account Manager here at Yellowstone Landscape in Palm Coast. I saw what it is to be him on a day to day basis and let me tell you guys, it is not easy. I watched him manage several properties he oversees, as well as watching him mentor a fellow intern named Zach. I want you to visualize my day with Scott yesterday, so here is a quick summary of my day with our senior account manager.

 8:00 AM 

- I met Scott at the office and he then took me to an emergency irrigation job. 

- I had the chance to see him mentor Zach who is a fellow intern and I saw how he shares his knowledge in lessons he is trying to teach him. 

- It was also fun seeing how Zack works his way through his internship as well as what he does on a daily basis.

- Next, we went to a property that hired us because they wanted us to redesign and mantain part of their property. 

- For me this was the most interesting part of the day. I got to interact with clients and watch Scott draw out some sketched of what their new landscape could look like. 

- Since this property was directly on the ocean we talked about the maintenance problems that landscaping might experience because of it, especially the plants and trees that are not native to the area. 

- We also talked about some of the measures we will have to take in order for the landscape to thrive. 

- This was an incredible esperienve and learned a lot from talking to the clients and watching Scott interact with them. 

- Overall, FAVORITE PART OF THE DAY.

- Cementery Time!!!!! Our next stop was visiting a client at Craig Flagler Palms Funeral Home. 

- As dull as it may seem, going to the cementery was actually not that bad and not as depressing as I thought it would be. 

- We talked about the landscape maintenance of the cementery and some solution to a pest problem that they were experiencing. 

- This definitely was my least favorite part of the day, kind of creepy but still interesting seeing all the different types of properties that we work on. 

1:00 PM 

- After lunch, it was time to check on another job that Scott and his crews oversee. 

- I got to meet more of his crew members and it was nice getting to know them face to face.

- While we were on our way back to the office, we SAVED A TURTLE'S LIFE! 

Overall, this was a fun and creative experience. I had the opportunity to see how Scott interacts with his clients and his crew members. He was a great person to shadow and gave me important insight about his job.
