    I worked at Terminix

    Pros

    My coworkers were awesome! They treated me like family!

    Cons

    Management cares solely about numbers and money andaking sure they get their bonuses. The morale dropped after the passing of my favorite manager and a few months later I called it quits.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Value your employees with more than just gift cards to Wawa after selling thousands of dollars in product for the company. Most of all LISTEN! Sometimes managers aren't always right!

    Pros

    Pay(maybe), schedule and coworkers. That's about it. Oh, and the schedule minus Saturday work.

    Cons

    Constant upheaval and change. 7 different regional managers inside of 3 years and 4 different branch managers in the same time frame.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop. Constantly. Moving. The. Bar. Or at least provide some support and resources if you do move said bar. Also, please stop with the realignments and separate commercial from residential again. Commercial customers have different needs.

    I worked at Terminix

    Pros

    They provided a Company truck that I was allowed to drive home. They also provided uniforms. And they hosted company functions for family to attend.

    Cons

    Working on Saturdays. Low pay, commission based. No opportunity for advancement if you're not one of the "in crowd". Managers are only out for themselves and push the employees to work long hours just to line their own pockets with bonuses not offered to the working man.

    I worked at Terminix full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The company pays very well for production, supplies superior equipment, and trains its employees well. From an equipment, materials, and technological standpoint, Terminix is excellent.

    Cons

    Branch management had a complete disconnect with its service technicians. Management prefers to treat subordinates as inferiors to the degree of abuse. Those who fail to understand this continue to thrive financially, albeit without the possibility of any advancement, while seasoned employees soldier on while harboring deep unspoken resentment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The technicians know what they are doing. Allow them to do their jobs without interference.

    I worked at Terminix full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    I always enjoyed meeting new customers and trying to solve whatever problems they were having. Sales opportunities. Plenty of work to do. No layoffs. Good benefits. Company provides opportunities to pursue state certifications, and licensing.

    Cons

    The company focuses on sales quotas and doesn't care about quality service anymore. Bad work/life balance. Toxic in office environment. A lot of politics. I've seen too many people come into the industry/company and get promoted to management positions after being there for a short time just based off of their sales numbers alone. Too many times I've seen technicians have more knowledge and training in the industry than management. A lot of turnover with management. You can potentially invest a lot of time and effort into training and the company, just to have a new manager come and destroy it all. The politics makes it possible for secretaries to schedule late appointments if they don't like you, or give other technicians leads in your defined area. New managers can take away new leads and greatly influence your income. They've created an office environment that allows crooked, dishonest employees to thrive. A lot of scandal involving relationships between employees, employees and customers. If deception, dishonesty, and a lack of work ethic is what you're about...Welcome To Terminix!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If a technician has a proven reputation of lying and cheating customers as well as their fellow employees...get rid of them! Definitely don't promote them to a management or supervisor position. You're setting a horrible example for the honest, hard-working technicians, and new employees.

    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

    Work on getting salesmen company cars.
