    I worked at Terminix full-time for more than 20 years

    Pros

    You can make some money if you work the hours needed and grow your customer base.

    Cons

    *Constant directional change. *Your biggest competition is your own company. *Many services sold cannot actually be serviced effectively. *Top performers are overlooked for promotion so management can reach bonuses.

    Advice to Management

    Choose a path and stick with it for a year or two. Random navigation gets you nowhere.

        I have been working at Terminix full-time for more than 4 years

        Pros

        If they like you. You’ll get a good territory to work.

        Cons

        No base pay, work 6 days a week, no work life balance, stressful environment, you can sell $30,000 for the company a month and that’s considered a bad month. One of the workers died on the job and the CEO just sent out a letter so value of life means minimal. Racial slurs through the office to some of the workers. Real toxic work place.

        Advice to Management

        Can’t give advice to management because they don’t listen.
