    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Terminix (Tampa, FL) in May 2014.

    Interview

    Was a group interview. (Terrible) group interviews are never good. Can't get anything accomplished that way. They lead us on about the position. The manager told us it was for 30 inside sales reps when it was for 30 outbound sales reps.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    They lied about the position after I worked for several days. Liars!

    Interview

    Surprisingly Thorough, but deceptive. Many promises, few were realized.

    Choose another company. Most of what you are promised is a lie.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Terminix (Tampa Palms, FL) in November 2013.

    Interview

    Filled out an application online. A month later I received an email asking me to schedule a phone interview. The phone interview was standard "tell me about a time when" customer service related. After that I was invited for a in person interview. It was a group orientation. They explain the job, the pay, the hours, and benefits after 90 days. After that they call in the a room one by one and interview with a supervisor. If they like you they ask you to stay and another supervisor comes in to interview you. 2 hours later I received a call stating I got the job

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at Terminix (Chatsworth, CA) in November 2013.

    Interview

    The interview was held in Chatsworth by this rather shabby looking manager. Even though I was approached by their inside recruiter, the hiring manager completely changed the setup, territory, and work hours, from what I was told initially.

    Interview Questions

    • Having to work 6 days per week and 12 hour days, for a base salary of 2,000. Gasoline reimbursement & commission was to be extra. But the hours just were way too long. I proposed to work a 45 hour work week, the manager (in his thrties)   1 Answer
