    I have been working at Killingsworth Environmental

    Pros

    Awesome ownership. Unbelievable management team and best service guys in town. We have the best of the best employees that take care of our customers. At Killingsworth we work for the customer and that's why we are very picky with our employees. Our staff has been hand selected by the management team to take care of the greatest people around. ( our customers ) I absolutely love working for a company that has this much...

    Cons

    None. It's a job and we all have to be accountable for our actions. If someone from this company gets fired believe me they fired themselves.

    Advice to Management

    Keep building men and women every day. A job of a manager is to turn talent into performance and you guys have done a great job.

    I worked at Killingsworth Environmental full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Killingsworth is a family owned company that truly is looking to do right by their customers and genuinely solve their problems. The culture surrounding the staff is overall positive and close knit. There are many fields to pursue a career in and plenty of growth opportunities. You become part of the family quickly and feel a sense of pride in the work and services you provide, knowing you are doing the best work around...

    Cons

    In this industry, especially sales, you are going to be on an emotional rollercoaster loaded with stress and frustration. But it’s all about how you deal with it, that’s what defines your success. Every job you have is going to have negative aspects to it, some self generated and some not, but if you keep your head down and work hard you will overcome them. People who are fired from this job, fire themselves one way or...

    I worked at Killingsworth Environmental full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    The best part of this company, are the entry level office staff, and service technicians. These people are what keep this business afloat. I hope, that things start to get better solely for these people, and they no longer have to be exposed to the stress & the "pee-on" mentality that they are exposed to on a daily basis.

    Cons

    Killingsworth prides itself on their family built business, which any company should when built from the bottom up. However, the positive way this set up is portrayed in interviews, and also in marketing to their customers, is not what it is portrayed to be. Having recently left Killingsworth, I can say that it was the absolute worst it had ever been. The true "family mentality" means what family says goes, whether they...

    Advice to Management

    Killingsworth needs to learn that their ego is getting in the way of continuing the growth they have seen over the past years. Never admitting fault and the "submit or be exiled" mentality that has taken root in the core of this company will not pay off in the end. Killingsworth has lost MANY 10-year employees over the past year, and I can promise you that these issues are at the center of all problems. Step back and...

    I worked at Killingsworth Environmental full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Day turn, weekly pay,nothing else

    Cons

    They charge you if you do not do things there way. If you go 5 miles over speed limit that's 75.00 and so on. You never know what your hours will be and you can't take any hous off in the summer for anything including a dr appointment.

    Awesome, friendly, helpful, caring technicians

    Cons

    Awful, Controlling, Condescending, Unfair Management. THE TECHNICIANS MAKE THIS COMPANY NOT MIKE ROGER'S FAMILY

    Advice to Management

    Before you fire someone on claims you have no proof of rather the word of mouth, talk to the employee instead of throwing them out into the street.

    I have been working at Killingsworth Environmental full-time

    Pros

    Their are many pros when describing Killingsworth. The company is consistently growing, compensation is adequate, promotions from within, hard work is recognized and pays off. It is nice to work for a service company that strives to be the best at every service they do, it is a true American success story. Your success is what YOU make it.

    Cons

    Like every business their are cons. Most are minor, but some more serious. It is a large company and growing pains are evident. Their are many people in management positions who have been placed their during a time of growth, (hired from within) who are not leaders. They lack the management and interpersonal skills to take Killingsworth to the next level. This is a good problem when recognizing Killingsworths loyalty...

    Advice to Management

    Find the true leaders in your workplace. Promote them and let them correct some of the cultural issues. You have amassed a great work force of individuals. It is not everyday you see such a group of hard working individuals. Respect them, listen to them, promote them, give them raises individually as you see fit. We have weekly meetings, use that time productively. Stimulate conversation, allow opinions to be...

    Pros

    Killingsworth is growing extremely fast and constantly adding on more home services to better serve their customers needs. That means there are plenty of employment opportunities. They promote from within, so if you work hard you will be rewarded. They are always throwing out contests for everyone from the techs in the field to the employees on the phones.... The prizes that are given away are top notch! Everyone is supportitive...

    Cons

    Growing so quickly it's hard to get to know all of the employees.

    Advice to Management

    create a employee directory with a picture and small bio about each employee, so when you pass them in the hallway you know which division they work in and just a little background info.

    Killingsworth is family owned and operated which I like. I have seen this company grow over the years with a good deal of changes for the better. They always promote from within and it is refreshing to know you have a chance to advance even if you do not have a high level of education. Hard work always pays off and YES you DO have to work hard. Management expects your best everyday. I would rather work for a company...

    Cons

    Everyone in the company sends a lot of emails which can sometimes get confusing when trying to communicate changes and it is easy to overlook something important.

    Advice to Management

    Have all manangers do an annual evaluation on their employees (even management should be reviewed). This can be a good tool to build better employees. It lets them know what they are doing right and what they can improve on.
