    Pros

    You basically have your own business here. There is no ceiling on how much you can make, you just need to have the drive to succeed and the willingness to stay in contact with your customers.

    Cons

    Attics in Florida can get really hot and a large territory can cut into how many people you see per day.

    Advice to Management

    Make a more uniform commission schedule that rewards producers and inspires people to be out there more. A tiered pay scale would do wonders.

    Pros

    Pay is really good. I work at the Bay Area branch which is one of the best in the company. Leads are given to you, just show up and solve the customers issues and receive 15% commission on all of your sales. It's easy.

    Cons

    Some of the managers try and are great, but, the majority of them have given up. The upper management is very money hungry and puts a tremendous amount of stress on the underlings which makes the branch suffer. Anything that is done is never good enough.

    Advice to Management

    Care for the customers more, if some of the managers negative attitude is destroying the business you need to get rid of them.

    Pros

    Great benefits, various work shifts, short commute. Although there is a variety of various shifts to work the company does not necessarily give everyone a fair choice in which to choose from without some favoritism involved. The company is very lacking in building morale due to the manner in which it is run. People are announced promoted into positions when the position wasn't even posted to allow others the opportunity in which to apply. They clearly send the wrong message. Many have left because of these issues and many are planning to leave.

    Cons

    Although I applied and was hired for a certain position, once your hired they move people to whatever position they decide into positions I have no desire to be in. Never seen a company operate in this manner which seems deceitful.

    Advice to Management

    Since this is suppose to be confidential I don't want to say as many people have tried and they have been dismissed from the company.

    Pros

    Terminix is a stable company with fairly good benefits, pay, and opportunity. Also, if you work hard enough, they reward you with an awesome company trip to various exciting venues.

    Cons

    Commissioned sales personnel's payroll is incorrect approaching 100% of the time. If you don't meticulously keep up with it, and constantly submit corrections, you will lose money that belongs to you.

    Advice to Management

    Most managers that I associated with are fairly decent, but they could be overly demanding at times, and seemed to baby the employees that were their favorites.
