    I worked at Terminix full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Good pay if you can perform, there is a good potential for bonus. You get a company truck to use and drive home as well. Uniforms are provided as well.

    Cons

    Horrible work environment with unrealistic expectations from management. They fire people without hesitation and often without good reason. Your every move is tracked, including what time you leave home. The office is monitored, so you have to watch what you say there as well. It was not the culture I felt comfortable in.

    Advice to Management

    Learn to treat your employees as people, not numbers.

    I have been working at Terminix full-time

    Pros

    Hours are usually very flexible.
    Easy to get position. If you get an interview, you will be hired.
    Benefits are decent.

    Cons

    Have to use your own vehicle for all sales calls. Gas reimbursement is minimal.
    Sometimes can be in the car for half a day of commuting to appointments.
    You have six paid holidays the entire year.
    You have to work every other weekend and sometimes more, depending on performance.
     Cutthroat environment. Senior guys are out there to take you down.

    Advice to Management

    Better pay and more time off. Get in the field more often.
