    Pros

    Great People, committed to succeed. Many opportunities can work somewhat independently.

    Cons

    HR empire, management lacks power to make staffing choices. This causes friction between front line associates and management. Can be disorganized, Work-Life balance, corporate leadership has turned over 100% in last 2 years.

    Advice to Management

    HR has the attitude of being the kings of TMX. Need to be partners, not adversaries.

    Pros

    Management allows you to work hours that are best for you and your family. Unlimited commission potential if u are a real sales person and not just an order taker

    Cons

    Sometimes get tired of running your mouth on the phone. Not enough new products to sell to prospects to increase revenue.

    Advice to Management

    Money talks and new $$ incentives weekly would motivate sales people to work harder!

    Pros

    What a wonderful place to grow; I have been employed by Terminix for almost 15 years. Our entire executive loves our customers and our branches, techs, sale personnel strive to do the right thing every day. Terminix is constantly seeking new ways to better our products, our promises, and the people. Great place to work, I absolutely love it!

    Cons

    We strive hard to be the best of the best; sometimes that can feel stressful or overwhelming; but both my Terminix family and my home family keep me going.

    Advice to Management

    Keep driving us!! And thank you!!

    Pros

    Great training, alright benefits, company vehicle, paid for sales you complete, you have to like/enjoy talking to people and visiting with customers,

    Cons

    Other employees that 'know it all', you are a number to management and nothing else, management will retaliate against you if you disagree on anything with them (especially insignificant minor things, like telling them that a mechanic is ripping them off, or that an idea that manager has isn't a good idea).

    Advice to Management

    face it that some of your employees have more pest management experience. Ask their thoughts/advice, and listen to them. Pay a little better. encourage advancement from within.
