    Pros

    It's a Christian company.. It's easy money if you're willing to work.. Pretty good benefits and 401k plan. Flexible schedule.

    Cons

    Some of the cons are not having a company car for the outside sales people. You have to drive your own vehicle and maintain it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pros

    The people and management you work with are amazing. They are very passionate about pest control services. They give training to their employees to make sure they are up to date on their products and services. They care about their employees' success by tracking your performance and work with you on how you can improve and reach your company goals.

    Cons

    Hence, the job title. you have to deal with inbound calls from customers who want to cancel their services. You have to hear customers' negativity all day which can drain you. Sometimes its not the whole day, but you do rely on your co workers to help with getting over it.
