    I have been working at Terminix full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Terminix is a great place to work! I've been with ServiceMaster/Terminix for 5+ years and been able to create my career here. The company is constantly growing and focused on customers and employees. We are very busy and there is a lot of work to be done but this is a company that allows you to have work life balance. Culture is fun, fast paced, and I enjoy calibrating with others. I’ve been able to recommend Terminix to friends and they have been able to start their careers here too. Leadership listens and you feel like you have a voice in the company. Strongly recommend to others!

    Cons

    No cons at this time.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work - I can't wait to see how we continue growing the business

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

    Pros

    Company Car for Buisness use and a Gas Credit Card. The Company pays for all repairs needed. A Base Salary, Benefits and Commision. If you work for a good Branch you will have a good Team of Service Professionals to work with.

    Cons

    The Starting base salary is to low for an Outside Sales Account Manager for Commercial Sales. The Commision Structure is also to low and it needs to be raised in 2018. Better training is needed for newly hired Sales Professionals and a good Sales Plan as they Ramp up in there assigned territories...

    Advice to Management

    All Service and Branch Managers are working extremely hard. Along with The Service Planners they have earned my respect. Better training beyond Aspire is badly needed if you want to retain talent. There is to much on the job training...

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

    Pros

    You learn new things that you can use outside of work.

    Cons

    Management is lazy and inept.

    Advice to Management

    The Scranton PA branch of terminix is one of the lowest rated in the country.

    Do not work here unless you will be servicing customers in an area that you actually live in.

    If you don't, you will be expected to travel 2 or more hours to do services. The only way to make real money here is if you live on the route you are given.

    You will be expected to do administrative duties that should be handled in the office.. (calls, collections) I'm sure terminix is great, but my branch is a bad apple of the bunch.

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

    Pros

    I cant think of too many pros. Probably having a company car could be a pro but their payscale makes you pay big for their base model ford focus

    Cons

    Working 6 days a week even though in the interview i was told only 1 Saturday a month.

    Must sell $20k of business before you start making commission.

    A lot cold calling and call sessions even though I was told there was no cold calling required in the interview.

    Too many ways the company can mess with your pay.

    This has been the worst job I have ever had. Run away. Their turnover rate is 100%

    Advice to Management

    Be honest and transparent

    Having to deal with anal customers, miss communication with the salesman and the technicians, under paid, and working in the elements
