    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.

    I have been working at Terminix

    Pros

    Training Opportunities, Flexible Schedules, Outings Within The Department as Well Events Hosted By the Company and Reasonable Starting Salary

    Cons

    The opportunity for advancement is seemingly nonexistent. A person may have credentials and experience but if you are a great asset to your team, management will try there hardest to keep you where you are.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your team when it comes to ideas for improvement within your department. They are the ones who are actually doing the work therefore the know needs to be done.

    Pros

    once you're trained and ready to go, you're left alone to do your route.

    Cons

    arbitrary policies and really long hot (or cold in winter) hours.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    find a way for pest control techs to have more balance between work and life so they don't get burned out

    Pros

    Company car, great management support. Management works as hard as you do. They have a interest in you making money, as they get paid on how much you sell.

    Cons

    Commission structure often changes. Termite is very hard to sell, as Terminix charges a premium. Very, very long hours. I really mean that, and there is no way around it. Sun up to sun down.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    None, it's a hard industry.
