    Pros

    I interned at Rollins head quarters and people are very friendly and approachable. Lots of chances to interact with leaders and learn from them.

    Cons

    Dress code is out of the 80s. Women still required to wear hose and men must wear ties 5 days a week. Stifling in the middle of summer and completely out of touch with what interns at other companies are expected to wear. Very male dominated.

    Advice to Management

    Allow casual dress or many will not work for you. Provide more visible diversity.


  2. Good Internship Experience, but...

    I worked at Rollins (More than a year)

    Pros

    The internship program is very good. It allows you to interact with Senior Executives and learn a lot.

    Cons

    Internship experience was good, however, the company is not a place for full-time young professionals, once it has a very conservative atmosphere, with almost zero chance of growth.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in younger people.

    Decent Pay Plenty of Autonomy Excellent Training Provide Company vehicles for many You can make a career here, but make sure you follow the rules and praise management constantly

    Cons

    Upper Management can't get out of their own way. Tenure means little Favors residential over commercial Orkin has been around for a long time and they have some great resources. they are horrible at disseminating that information to the field on the commercial side. commission structure sucks on commercial side.

    Conservative company that has the potential to be great if only they embraced change.

    I have been working at Rollins full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Paycheck. Great training department. Knowledgeable employees .

    Cons

    Culture. Too conservative: strict dress code, no working from home, and little work-life balance. Mostly white male dominated work environment. Unfortunately, some departments have unqualified individuals leading because time on the job out ranks expertise of the subject manner.

    Advice to Management

    Allow for females in leadership position. Relax the dress code. Consider telecommuting options.

    Pros

    Lots of work at call center with a variety of systems such as Microsoft XP/7, IE8/9/10, VoIP, wireless, mobile devices, AS400 and applications. Pleasing environment and friendly people. You will gain a lot of experience.

    Cons

    They regularly let good IT contractors go for minor reasons. It doesn't seem likely that a contract position will evolve into a hire position.

    Advice to Management

    Their strategy must be keeping costs low but the service to in-house clients suffers.

    Pros

    There are opportunities within the organization to try new areas of interest and to excel if you find the right fit.

    Cons

    Leadership is not transparent and there is a top down mentality with very little room for new ideas.

    Advice to Management

    Management needs move away from fear based motivation.

    Pros

    If you have a good manager, the work experience is enjoyable. To their credit, the company really does try to make it a good experience.

    Cons

    Mostly cold calling, and then you are visiting a potential a customer under disingenuous reasons, i.e. "Free home inspection" then your house needs an expensive "this or that" or it might fall to the ground...overnight.

    Advice to Management

    Do a lot more to generate non-pest service leads.

    I worked at Rollins full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    It was a job with good pay but not stable.

    Cons

    Call center would be full beginning in spring then empty out after fall. People would be fired for virtually any reason. Unfair hiring practices

    Advice to Management

    Make sure that people understand the work is seasonal. Hire them back the next year instead of having to retrain new people alll the time.
