    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.

    Pros

    If you are upper management you can get away with murder and just be moved to a different branch.

    Cons

    If you are anyone else you can come in one day and have a great job, come in the next and find out your position no longer exists.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop creating impersonal call centers that can't handle individualized care to your customers.
