Pros

Great employees, good supervisors. Pay is reasonable for the work we do and the BS we encounter from customers.

Cons

A terrible computer system. Terminix uses DOS which is horrible with the things we have to do. We are limited on what we can do and are not always able to help the customer. Daily we get yelled at from our customers because the techs always seem not to show up for their scheduled appointments and never call the customers informing them they are not coming out. Than we call the techs and managers with out any success than email our supervisor or the customers branch manager in the area they reside. And still nothing is done. In these cases the customer is never satisfied! Also we employees are lying to the customers daily because we know the branch managers will not follow up w customers requests and than were back to square one.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

This is for higher management- get rid of DOS and have a new point and click system. Its not hard to create. Techs need to be fired and so do managers for almost never following up with customers request.

    Pros

    Terminix offers a competitive benefit package including Health, Dental, 401k, among many others. The job itself is the easiest Customer Service I've ever encountered.

    Cons

    Where do I start? Management. They are the primary reason why the call center is now a revolving door. I've never worked for a company where the Managers talk down on their supervisors in front of other employees. From the first day, our training class was dropping like flies.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communication Skills is vital in every company for growth and success. When I say communication skills, I mean watch how you talk to people. Some of you seem to think you're God. It's only a position. You put on clothes no differently than any other Homo Sapien.

    Pros

    Good benefits, training and pay.

    Cons

    Company is constantly changing the way the business structure is (ie, reducing branches, then re-opening, changes job roles and etc.) It does not affect the customer but affects the employee's outlook of their future.
