I have been working at Terminix full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

Stable employer, always looking for good quality new staff. They treat their employees well. One thing I've liked: we have work trucks, gas is paid, all maintenance, work uniforms. That's a big plus. Salary + commission. Lots of room for growth for someone wanting to build a career, not just get a job.

Cons

Some days are better than others. Some customers are easier to work with than others. For a goal-driven employee, though, this shouldn't be a problem.

    I worked at Terminix full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Good pay if you can perform, there is a good potential for bonus. You get a company truck to use and drive home as well. Uniforms are provided as well.

    Cons

    Horrible work environment with unrealistic expectations from management. They fire people without hesitation and often without good reason. Your every move is tracked, including what time you leave home. The office is monitored, so you have to watch what you say there as well. It was not the culture I felt comfortable in.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn to treat your employees as people, not numbers.

    I worked at Terminix full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    worked with great people.
    sold a solid product and service.

    Cons

    long hours
    many, many, many miles on my car
    by far the lowest commission rate in the industry.
    terrible salary compared to the lack of commission.
    unrealistic expectations

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    understand better what your competition is doing not just out in the field but in the office ie:
    commission percentages
    base salary
    car allowance
    cell phone allowance
    computer

    anybody that could go elsewhere would if there were limitless opportunities. terminix would fall dead last.
