Pros

Supportive management and flexible schedule.

Cons

Poor travel compensation which generally does not cover average gas costs. Paychecks are set on the 15th and 25th of each month and lose of one month of base pay/travel stipend per year. When a client cancels a contract before the agreed term, commissions will be taking out of your next paycheck.

Advice to Management

Pay your guys a little more!

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    The training that the company provides is very good.

    Cons

    If you are considering a job at Orkin plan to work 6 days a week 10-13 hours a day. The company expects you to make more customer stops for pest control treatment than is possible. The health benefits are PITIFUL. If you become seriously ill you will go broke.

    Advice to Management

    Customers pay for pre-treatment to keep from getting pests and not just inspections- which is pushed by orkin in order to save chemicals.
