I have been working at Terminix full-time (More than 10 years)
Big and stable company. Sales reps, receive company car, gas card , ipad. Industry is recession proof ( almost ) . Commercial Sales only way to go! Better hours!! Good work home life balance!! Not a bad job , just have to focus on the good!
Lots of competition within your own company. Beyond local management no one really cares who sells what. Your competition is everywhere from small time companies, to large companies, your own tech's and residential side of business. Also it is a turn and burn sale. No real residual. Hard to find verticals other than hotels (w/ bed bug ) that can provide residual sales. You must follow up on everything as lots of management will drop the ball on your deals. Makes it challenging to follow through for your customers.
Advice to Management
Work on protecting the back door as it seems that is where the issues are in the company. Stop paying techs to sell. Pay them to service!!!
I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Terminix in June 2017.
The interview process was very pleasant and inviting. It was highly engaging in terms of information they give you on top of open ended questions. They don't really ask you anything to try and trip you up but they do the ask straight to the point answers as well as providing the same for any of your questions. I'd encourage asking questions. They were pleased with the back and forth between us and it shows your fully invested and willing to learn more about them.
