Pros

Great incentives and bonus, good branch's are family oriented with long term employees, advancement in the company is there, training is over the top, paid holidays and vacation, like owning your own business if you have a route.

Cons

The company makes a lot of money and you get the scraps.

    I worked at Orkin full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Worked alone 90% of the time, other 10% I had to deal with idiots in person, manager.

    Cons

    My Manager was not smart enough to negotiate his salary when he was put in his position and I made more money than he did by a couple thousand a year. I also knew more about the job and his as well. Being belittled and made to feel guilty about my income is a sever no no. This company also encourages white collar crime by taking money from accounts and applying them to other accounts. I was also told to do and expense report in my name to cover the borrowing from other accounts and then pay it back.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay attention to your new untrained managers and do audits more frequently.
