    The people are great! There are good bonus structures for those that can hit the metrics.

    Cons

    The technology has not been as great as promised. Terminix demands a lot of its local management teams. Hard to maintain a work life balance.

    Pros

    Truck, Gas Card, Stock Options

    Cons

    Work Life Balance is horrible. Company treats you like a number rather than a person. Senior management is completely disconnected to what really goes on. Unrealistic expectations. DW5, OTJ, QA CORITY truck inspections...the list goes on and on of unrealistic expectations...its a CYA (cover your ) company.

    I have been working at Terminix full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Weekly paycheck, decent insurance, company cell phone, company truck, company gas. It's nice to feel you're helping people by identifying problems they wouldn't have known about until it was too late. Finding a plumbing leak or disconnected ducting, and being able to bring more value to my termite inspection was always enjoyable to me.

    Cons

    No work/life balance. If you want your branch to be successful, expect to work at least 12 hours a day, and 2-4 Saturdays a month. Salary sounds great, until you realize that your technicians make more than you do per hour, relatively. They make overtime on Saturdays, you make less money per hour the more hours you are required to work. Bonuses offered for beating goals do not compensate for the massive amount of hours necessary to watch all of the myriads of goals that you can have bonus money taken away for.

    Pros

    There are no pros to talk about.

    Cons

    In the past year and 6 months I have learned that Terminix is a very dishonest company. There have been multiple occasions where my pay has not been what it should be. Extremely long hours you do things to keep customers happy yet you don’t get any reimbursement for your time unless you sell. You are required to do annual re-inspections for customers with termite service or other renewable services, Terminix gets paid once the inspection are completed but they won’t share that with you. Wood Destroying Insect reports normally done for VA loans if it comes through a national account Terminix will get paid for it and again you will waste your time and not get a portion of that. There is no work life balance Terminix will own you from 8am - 9pm Monday through Saturday some managers may require you to work the first Sunday of the very month too. Winters are horrible as you might suspect since bugs aren’t as prevalent. The sales app and billing all need some how they managed to attach a $1200 check from a family member to a different customers account, it took 3 months for them to get it fixed.... I would avoid Terminix at all cost as a employee and a customer.

    Pros

    Company car, phone, gas, pay is decent.

    Cons

    Tons of micromanagement, they say they care about employees, but only seems to be lip service. No work life balance for management. Be prepared to review the report for the report for the report, and explain exactly why that metric isn’t meeting today’s flavor of the day for the standard.
