I worked at Orkin full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Relationships at branch level are awesome. Most of the Branch managers really care about developing their people. The training you get when youfirststart and the ongoing training opportunities are second to none.

Cons

Decisions on promotions have no rhyme or reason. They create positions for some people over one department and then give them a department they know nothing about without even considering how the Senior person who is more than qualified will react.

Advice to Management

This advice is to upper management at division level. When most of your staff in all of your branches continue to shut down and appear unhappy, it is time to take a look at what you are doing wron
