    I worked at Terminix full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Very laid-back and casual atmosphere. Nobody was breathing down your neck all the time. I was alone in the office the majority of the time.

    Cons

    Pay rate was not decent at all. Started around $8 per hour but barely made more than $10 per hour after 8 years of employment and several excellent employee evaluations. People being hired for the same position were being paid more to start. Also they seemed to care more about the sales dept than anything else.


  5. "constant route cuts"

    Route changed every month. once you get to a comfy salary the cut your route back.

    I worked at Terminix full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Easy to work for. Health insurance reasonable.

    Cons

    Changed pay for sales, actually told we cam get monkeys to replace you. No longer care for their employees, they did before. Quit caring for the customers. Wanted us to sell things they didn't need. I couldn't do it.

    Advice to Management

    Employees are the heartbeat of the company. Show them you appreciate them.

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

    Pros

    The people are definitely the best part. Everyone I've met, from the management to the sales and technicians have been professional and just plain decent.

    -Company Car
    -Uncapped Commission
    -Thorough Training
    Wonderful atmosphere.

    Cons

    There is a decrease in base pay after you are licensed, but this is offset by the potential for commission.

    Not a huge fan of the high commission minimum, but if you're a salesperson you determine your paycheck. If you can sell, you'll make a good living for your family.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing! If there's anything I'd change, of course it's going to be more money in my pocket. We'll get there! Haha

    On most days unrealistic schedule generated by a national call center instead of actual office.

    Sitting in a truck with A/C

    Cons

    No communication at all! You are guaranteed routes (yeah right). They preach team work. Yeah. Okay. Oh you're supposed to get at least 2 Saturdays off. 😂😂😂😂😂 Yeah. Right.

    Advice to Management

    Numbers aren't important. Learn how to manage.
