    Pros

    Good place to get early pest control experience and exposure. Companies owners are friendly with politicians. Stable place for early training.

    Cons

    Poor pay, very little to no raises, hours are killer, workload can after while be overwhelming due to lack of breaks.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees the way you want to be treated. Share the wealth, stop allowing your upper management to get away with being Dictator!

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I have been working at Home Paramount Pest Control full-time

    Pros

    Company truck, company phone, adequate trainings

    Cons

    Commission based pay, long hours that sometimes don't match pay. Lack of communication between customers and scheduled appointments which often causes unpaid return visits due to the customers not being available for service the first time.

    Advice to Management

    Use a salary based pay with a smaller percentage for commission, change the way customers are contacted for their service or set up an automatic service schedule for each customer so they will be available, and allow the tech enough time to complete the service without feeling that they have to rush through the process. Don't pile on so many jobs in 1 day.

    Pros

    ADVANCEMENT WITHIN THE COMPANY!! I have been with Home Paramount for 19 years. Started as a Technician advanced to Management. I have trained and promoted technicians to management positions. Home Paramount promotes within, only if, you prove yourself to your Management Team.. Our Management teams believes in working hard in order to become successful. You must work hard and learn the industry. Home Paramount offers a nice benefit package (Health, Retirement, Vac/Sick, etc.) Thank You, Home Paramount!

    Cons

    Home Paramount does thorough Background checks and the hiring process could take sometime (7-15 days), to be hired by, the Best, You must be, the Best.

    Advice to Management

    Keep promoting within!

    I worked at Home Paramount Pest Control full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Technical Department has good minds but are under utilized. There were very good people that would come along at the branch level but typically they were run off quickly.

    Cons

    Very demanding work schedule especiallynfor branch managers. Long Saturdays to hit unattainable numbers. Very poor business ethics. Abuse of conference calls was awful. Every single morning reading off silly numbers from the day before. Its 2017. Read an email you dumb hillbilly.

    Advice to Management

    I could go on for days about the unethical practices this place continues to do. They push revenue, revenue, revenue even if jobs need done during improper times or label violations.
       I've seen "regional managers" with zero qualifications to be there but get the position simply because they will carry out the owners obsurd plans. I've witnessed a "cfo" hand down budgets to branches with no idea how he got to the numbers on the page. I saw branch managers fired simply because they were trying to do the right thing but it wasn't exactly what the owners wanted. They use the term "manager" very loosly because they have no intention of you managing anything. They simply want you to be a puppet and do exactly as told no matter what the cost.
        I can assure you that 75% of the positive feedback on this site are dummy reviews. Most employees are miserable but feel trapped or overwhelmed with the thought of being unemployed or job hunting. I have even heard that they ask their current managers to go on and post positive reviews on sites.
        Working for a family owned company was supposed to be something that could set them apart from the Large Corporations but i can tell you from experience working for them all that this is by far the worst.

    Pros

    There are no pros to work here

    Cons

    A lot of cons like upper management it's bad to many conference calls to much micro managing. They treat you like a kid. They make you work every sat all late hours for a family business they don't give you family time. The regional manager sits at home on Saturday emails you and if you don't have a certain number you can't go home till you have permission.. it's a big time joke

    Advice to Management

    Stop lying to your customers have better customer service get rid of the call center because they can't sale work over the phone. Treat your employees better
