I worked at Orkin

Pros

Supportive management and flexible schedule.

Cons

Poor travel compensation which generally does not cover average gas costs. Paychecks are set on the 15th and 25th of each month and lose of one month of base pay/travel stipend per year. When a client cancels a contract before the agreed term, commissions will be taking out of your next paycheck.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Pay your guys a little more!

    Pros

    Job flexibility. They allow you to work from home part of the week.
    Leads are called in to the office & provided to you.

    Cons

    Poor management.
    Sales manager was not qualified to lead a sales staff. Provided little support or inspiration.
    Very poor pay.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to completely re-think the way the sales office is run. Need to update the tools that sales has to work with. Need a managed database to work from.

    I have been working at Orkin

    Pros

    Good initial training through Atlanta...Glen Rollins is a wonderful CEO, company vehicle, tools and equipment are basically plentiful, comfortable uniforms, flexibility to make your own schedule.

    Cons

    INCOMPETENT MANAGERS that will lie, cheat, and basically steal from you and the company right under their eyes and corporate can't see it ! Due to poor management moral is horribly low, you will work 7 days a week, no thanks, then they forget to pay you, lose your check, finally you get your check, then they forget your commission! POOR POOR MANAGERS !

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please please look at your Kissimmee branch. Service managers may know how to kill bugs but they are killing your good techs too and we MAKE the money for you! 4 branch managers in less than a year, turn over is incredible! GLEN ROLLINS PLEASE LOOK AT THIS BRANCH AND SAVE US !!!!
