    Thank you for taking the time to provide a review. Waltham Pest Services is one of the oldest pest control companies, period. We take a great deal of pride in our history, but we are looking toward ... More

    Pros

    it was a job...watch your back!

    Cons

    horrible management, no team playing, expensive for health benefits, no HR person, indifferent people everywhere...I actually had two bosses; one of whom I didn't meet till I was there for a month!! I reported to the guy who interviewed me...but he wasn't the person I reported to....but he did my annual review, since my real boss confessed he had no clue what I did!!

    Advice to Management

    Every mgmnt position is politically-driven, no training

    I worked at Waltham Services full-time

    Pros

    Technicians have it much better than the administrative group.

    Cons

    There is no team effort here. Someone quits and their job is piled onto others. The best way to describe the attitude is a dull and lifeless. Everyone has an attitude and it's all negative.

    Advice to Management

    Spend some money on your employees. It sucks seeing other companies give their employees parties and events. Jump into the 20th century and let people work from home.

    I worked at Waltham Services full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Co-workers have been really decent. Company vehicle provided for sales and service outside positions.

    Cons

    No career advancement opportunities, educational opportunities or tools to perform the job effectively. Management knows nothing about sales or sales management and thus not an advocate for the sales rep. Pay plan, health benefits and 401K are mediocre at best. Facilities (regional headquarters & branches) are unkempt & ramshackle. Morale is low with employees waiting for the next nasty-gram to come from the boss berating their work.

    Advice to Management

    Wake up and read some articles on the current state of the American workplace. Learn how to attract top talent and retain the very few skilled workers who are left.

    "A bad experience compounded with incompetent management"

    Pros

    Technicians are able to work independently and the company usually has the tools, chemicals and other supplies to do the job properly.

    Cons

    The company is loaded with incompetent supervisors, middle and upper management born out of nepotism. None of these people earned their positions on their own merit.

    Advice to Management

    My advice to upper management - Rollins, LLC - is to clean house of these incompetent people and start from scratch.

    Pros

    The company offers independence, technical support and supplies when needed. There is access to entomologists. They also accommodate people when they need time off.

    Cons

    Their appointment scheduling and routes is a nightmare.There is never enough time to do the job right. They are always short of help and push those who are there.

    Advice to Management

    There are too many friends and friends of friends in the company who are non producers or just incompetent. The lack of accountability is amazing.
