I worked at Terminix full-time for 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 have been working at Terminix full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Theres not much good about this company, the co workers were very nice. Hours were not bad, and the was no boss looking over your shoulder.

    Cons

    Poor communication, clueless management, training is simply horrible. Management feels it appropriate to hire a hand full of sales people, do no training with them, and see who sticks around.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Find management that care about the employees, provide the proper training to help your employees succeed.

    I worked at Terminix full-time for 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.
