I worked at Orkin full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

Interview Process....very professional! Training...from beginning through employment...Exceptional

Cons

All levels and branches of management need better communication. Their division was well noticeable after initial investment of my time.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Top management....implement a training program and introduction program that brings management from all levels and branches together and on the same page....if you do this it will be as impeccable as all other training you provide...and your across the board numbers that grade all areas....from employee retention to new and renewing sales... will complement very well.

    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.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop hiring non experienced people to put in the industry.

    I worked at Orkin full-time for 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.
