    Commercial Service Professional Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Columbia, SC
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Columbia, SC
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Terminix in March 2015.

    Interview Details

    This interview was for a Terminix franchise. I was contacted for an interview within two days of submitting my resume. Th interview was in a very relaxed atmosphere,and he allowed me to ask more questions about the position than were asked of me. It was more of a get-to-know you session - ensuring that I was a personality fit for the position and that I understood and did want the position -than it was the "typical" interview. He was very open with answers to my questions. When I asked about the customer portfolio, he produced a hard copy and reviewed it with me, answering any questions I had. Pay, pay dates, pay structure, benefits,etc. were discussed in detail during the interview. He didn't try to sell me on the position, but just told me the facts. He even volunteered the negatives (commission-based pay structure, on call one weekend a month, uniform costs, etc.) The interview lasted nearly two hours, after which he encouraged me to call some employees and ask about the job/company and then discuss it with my wife before accepting the position. When I called back to confirm that I wanted to move forward, the forms to complete for my background check were emailed to me within the hour and a voucher for my drug test was emailed the following morning. From this point, it took one week for background checks to come back and to receive an official offer of employment.

    Sales Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at Terminix in February 2015.

    Interview Details

    A brief phone call to set up an in-person interview. The actual interview was one of the more unprofessional experiences I've had in a 15 year sales career. Before I even sat down the interviewer was firing off questions. There was zero effort made to get to know who I was or engage in any kind of conversation. I knew about a minute into this interview that the company culture was not for me. It's evident that they are looking for stereotypically aggressive sales managers to baby sit a team of 100% commission sales people with high and constant turnover. They don't seem interested in a sales manager that has experience developing people to their maximum potential. They want someone to micromanage the recruits into short term success before they quit. Very typical of brand name, high priced, hard close companies.

    Branch Manager Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at Terminix.

    Interview Details

    The initial phone call from a staffer they tell you that you are required to contractually agree to move or be placed anywhere within the first year. Probably not a deal breaker for most but if your established in your area and have a family, not even an option. This needs to be stated in the job description.
