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

Pros

Large company benefits, huge customer base

Cons

Was a great company until the acquisition by CD&R then became a 'revenue at any cost' company

Advice to Management

Upper management should do something about the predacious sales tactics and the blatant falsification of revenue numbers.
Too many self serving dishonest people are in positions of power.

    I worked at Terminix full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The ability to truly help customers, while feeding my family. Friendly environment...in the beginning. Lax environment.

    Cons

    More work than one technician can handle, if you complain your pay is cut. They promote idiots over quality employees.

    Advice to Management

    Revamp your promotion practices there are some truly good employees that should be promoted to management and there is a lot that should be fired from management. Regional Managers meddle to much and have no idea what they are talking about they are useless.

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

    Pros

    Great training, helped to pass state pest control exam. Good support system. Very customer oriented.
    Potential promotion to management. Management training program excellent.

    Cons

    Required many unpaid hours for solicitations. Work week at 60+ hours. Change buisness model to sell a program or policy instead of a service which cut commissions by half. Field reps compensation is strictly commission against draw so change was dramatic.

    Advice to Management

    Go back to selling a service instead of selling a policy.
