      Very Micromanaged and Long Hours

      Sep 27, 2020 - Branch Manager

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      The work is challenging and you have a chance to help others.

      Cons

      The constant micromanaging and changes in strategic vision cause a lot of issues. I also do not like having to constantly justify every little thing to those above me. We spend a large amount of time sending in reports or being on conference calls reporting out numbers or going over whatever metrics has currently been deemed important instead of being able to be out in the field helping your employees. The company does not let managers do what they were hired for. In addition to all of the micromanaging, as a manager here at Terminix there are extremely long hours. As much as corporate preaches work life balance, there is a shockingly little amount of it due to the constant pressure to meet company demands and score high on metrics.

      I never knew that crawling under houses looking for termites would be something that I would be really good at.

      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.

      Management made this job a nightmare

      Pros

      Company vehicle if it is safe and functional when given to you.

      Cons

      No work life balance. Management is deceptive and will lie to you. Pay is minimal for what you have to deal with. Benefits could be better. Equipment is often in disrepair and you must fight for supplies and equipment. Vehicle's are issued in dangerous condition.

      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 vehicle and gas card.

      Cons

      Corporate acknowledges that Service Manager is the worst job in the company, however do NOTHING to change it! Insurmountable daily tasking, performance goals that do not follow SMART criteria, leadership by fear, horrible work/life balance, and constantly changing Technician pay plans that lead to high attrition and staffing issues.

      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.
