    Pros

    Family owned, 32 + Transferable locations, 89 years of business

    The pay vs the amount of work expected , the lack of acknowledgement from management

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the workers. Send out a anonymous survey and you will be surprised at the results, treat all of your employees as if they are an asset to your company.

    I worked at Dewey Pest Control full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Flexible on schedule, holiday pay and certain benefits given. You learn a lot about the industry but not fully. You get to sell but yet you will not get paid.

    Cons

    Poor management, conflict of interest, poor pay and we have to sell when we are not even licensed. Often management treats you like it’s your fault they are not meeting their numbers. Too much work is given to you and for 0.27 cents raise you have to beg two years and lucky if in one you get it. Don’t report anything because they don’t care. Bad and terrible company to work for.

    Advice to Management

    Begin treating your employees like you care they’re filling you pocket at the end of the month. Managers stop mistreating your OP and begin tearing them right. Buy some soap at least for the restroom, it won’t hurt your P&L.

    They really care about their employees! For the most part can make your own schedule and usually no problem getting time off if something comes up.

    Dealing with clients who are less than reasonable.. and working in the extreme hot and cold. Fluctuation in pay as seasons change.

    Pros

    Managers fight for their employees

    Cons

    Wants to go commercial doesn't have the right tools, training, or expectations to take the step.

    Advice to Management

    Corporate desperately needs the right structure to relieve the duties of the branches. Quit reinventing the wheel. If other major players are using something it is because it works. If you want to be unique deliver exceptional customer service.

    I worked at Dewey Pest Control

    Pros

    The company works quite efficiently and the staff and executives are great! I was treated very well at Dewey and was compensated very fairly. I've worked for a few other summer sales companies and I look back at Dewey as one of my best experiences.

    Cons

    When I worked there, the only downside was the paperwork, which is minuscule in comparison to the benefits of working here.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work!

    I have been working at Dewey Pest Control for less than a year

    Pros

    once you get a hang of the work, it turns into muscle memory fellow employees make the stress tolerable. paid vacation after a year. insurance and 401k. summer is crazy but winter is really calm. it evens itself out . typical office hours m-f 8 - 5. weekends off and holidays off.

    Cons

    the amount of pay is not worth the stress. office personal have more work thrown on them then what their job descriptions are. THEY WILL NOT UPDATE ORACLE. they are too far behind in time when it comes to technology . sometimes it feels like working with kindergarten kids. They should not pre-bill, 25% of the time it works. Majority of the time customer can not wrap their minds about it . They do fishy things that...

    Advice to Management

    bring the pay up to industry standards. The owners of the business have no clue how each office is being individually run. they should come around more often and under stand the different stress levels each office goes through. they have no idea to how each office is actually fun. The Business does not understand that the office personal are what really keep the office running, yet the office personal are the ones who...
