    Pros

    There were some very good co-workers, the duties required were acceptable for the position, there were options to learn new things and management was very willing to teach.

    Cons

    The pay was not very sufficient for the work load, there was a lot of "gossip" and "drama" between employees and ESP. Between management. There was no sense of "togetherness"

    Advice to Management

    Focus and care a little more about those who work under you. And pay a competitive salary for positions - may help resolve such a high turn over rate

    Pros

    There is none. This may come across as a disgruntled employee, however I'm not. As a manager with over 6yrs of service, there was constant turnover.

    Cons

    The Company has a very non-caring attitude towards it's customers and staff. You are placed under extreme duress by upper Management. There is a revolving door of employee's. The pay is not good. It's like those with integrity are not welcome because you refuse to be dirty. Customer care is a joke with this Company. During my time with them there was a non-stop history of complaints.

    Advice to Management

    Stop being so deceitful, stop lieing to your customers and staff. Stop forcing guys to work 12hrs a day, including Saturdays. Increase pay. Try to stop the revolving door policy. Be more aware of middle managements dirty ways (unless) you endorse it secretly. The company need to change its motto, and make employee's first in communication. Establish a team whose soul purpose is to investigate misdoings by middle management.

    Pros

    The people I worked (pest control techs, receptionist, branch manager) with made the job somewhat tolerable.

    Cons

    The pathetic rate of pay, arrogant upper management, poor planning, a profane level of pressure to sell, etc

    Advice to Management

    Learn to listen to your technicians/sales team....after all, THEY are the one's who do the work that ALLOWS you to have a pay check. With out them, YOU are pointless, null, and void.

    Pros

    I like the flexible of working 40 hours & if I need to take off a day, I can work sat instead of using my vacation days.

    Cons

    Corrupt management. No increase in pay, and if you get 25 cents more they act like they had to bed over backwards and risk there job to get you the 25 cents.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees better & they will work harder & be more loyal, in turn will result less turnover if employees.

    Pros

    Home Paramount, is an family owned, traditional company, that believes in their people. They work very hard to ensure that the environment surrounding all employees is pleasant, stable, consistent and family oriented. Their benefit package is very impressive, giving you multiple choices to suit your families needs. Management is exceptional, with the philosophy of "supporting their people and doing everything possible to create a winning situation". If you want a career, to be apart of a team, to be involved in something that matters, then Home Paramount is the company for you.

    Cons

    As Home Paramount has a unique training program that is second to none and unlimited amounts of resources, their expectations are high. This is directly caused by the traditional belief of always exceeding the customers expectations by performing quality in everything that they do.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to work hard for your team!

    Pros

    I started working for Home Paramount more than 15 years ago. They have allowed me the opportunity to grow as an employee into a position where I now have a definitive career path. Without the training provided and the opportunities for growth I would not be where I am at today.

    Cons

    Travel requirements can be a bit excessive, but they are flexible with the timing of the travel if the need arises.

    Pros

    I have no Pro's for this company. The salaries should be better for what the company expects of it's employees. Training for techs is pretty good. Admin staff trained OK. Management training is a joke!!

    Cons

    Company values suck. There is no work-life balance. It is work crazy hours and if you have a family or baby? You see them on Sundays. They keep employees who are awful and mistreat the ones that are good. And management is a joke here. Family run company that over inflates numbers and make goals impossible to reach.

    Advice to Management

    Upper management wouldn't take advice from anyone. They are too busy either kissing up to each other, gossiping about people or throwing people under the bus.

    Pros

    You can learn a lot about pest control. They have a great ongoing monthly training. Good techs.

    Cons

    The benefits are expensive As a sales person you are micro-managed, constantly called to see if you sold anything that day. Sometimes on Fridays they would mandate that everyone had to work that weekend. Frequent management changes. Branch managers really have no control all decisions come from corporate. You can make a living in the spring and summer months, but the winter is very difficult and customers are constantly asked to purchase new services. You also have to be mindful that the in house telemarketers are selling as well and there is a constant issue with them taking sales in your territory.

    Advice to Management

    Trust the managers you hire, stop micro management
