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

    Pros

    The opportunity to provide solutions for customers homes.

    Cons

    There’s no consideration of a personal life. Will always be a detriment to employee retention including my own. Honestly, how could you possibly remain a player in this job market with the current approach? C’mon!!

    Advice to Management

    Run your business

    "Poor Management"

    Current Employee - Branch Manager

    I have been working at Terminix full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great people to work with at the branch level.

    Cons

    Constant changes in corporate make it hard for anything to stick. Pay plan changes constantly, goals and incentives change constantly, the only thing that is consistent is that nobody likes working here.

    Advice to Management

    Turn things back over to the branch and let them run their business.

    Pros

    It has a great opportunity for hard workers and if you kiss techs butts they will give you more leads butt the problem with that is the guy who got the leads in my branch couldn't close even half of them!

    Cons

    The leads go to best butt kisser, whoever can B.S. the techs, they don't close them then the company should look at the bottom line of who sales by pure talent and who sales by just kissing butt to get more leads.

    Pros

    Most of the employees are great to work with. Genuinely good guys/gals who work hard.

    Pros

    You see money that can be made but never is made.

    Cons

    I read the reviews before starting my career at Terminix and I just assumed that it was bitter ex employees. I took the job with all the optimism in the world and within 2 days I realized that this place is an absolute nightmare. Long hours, very, very poor pay and a revolving door of management and employees. They expect you to work over 10 hours everyday and do not care at all about your family or outside life. DO NOT WORK HERE unless you have no family or friends or absolutely nothing to do besides work. Btw, all of the negative reviews are spot on. STAY AWAY!!!!

    Advice to Management

    Pay your employees more and value your employees. Understand that Terminix is a job and not a lifestyle
