I left another company for Orkin and 4 months later they dissolved the position. Wasn't given all the tools that I was supposed to receive until 2 weeks before Orkin dissolved the position. The regional Manager was EXCELLENT! The culture was old school and all about getting a number reported in the morning then back out to the cold calling. The Branch Manager NEVER bothered to ride with me for help. The office was very intense as when upper management came in EVERYONE wore a Tie and as son as we left or they did EVERYONE took them off. The office secretaries didn't like the Branch Manager either and the non helpful culture!
The pay was good and commissions were paid once they were started.

I very much enjoyed my first 4 years at Orkin. Over the last 2 years there have been three Service and Branch Manager changes, our branch office moved 6 months ago and the regional manager has recently resigned. As a result there have been ongoing changes to policies and procedures resulting in a stressful and chaotic atmosphere. Morale among administrative and technical staff is low.
Unhealthy culture and a lack of learning environment
Branch Sales Manager (Former Employee) – Riverside, CA – November 8, 2017
Upper management wanted to continue old ways of selling and did not embrace the modern styles of selling. Employees lacked the skill set to grow and learn ways of handling their position. Favoritism and politics played a very dominate influence throughout the building. The CEO, VP and the center manager were not on the same page therefore threw the front line managers under the bus when things did not go right. A toxic environment. Some of the sales and CS reps worked there over 10 years and did not want to change and poisoned the minds of the new hires.
I don't have one bad thing to say about this company. Their training was awesome and they always wanted what was in your best interest. You would strive to work and do well for this company to give back what they gave to you.

Micro managers and they think they have all the answers. Constant badgering about sales & no residual income- which is stupid in the Sales world. Always chasing new business with high quotas every month. Greedy company
Micro manage, Management wants you to offer customers things they don’t really need, and you are just a number.
Very relaxed and friendly work environment with great benefits

I really enjoyed working for this company. Unfortunately, they did not offer part-time hours and I was not able to work the full-time work week so I had to leave the company. I would recommend working there to anyone. Great salary, benefits and perks.

Orion is a job I never saw myself at. But now that I am here, I see that I can push myself to be better and higher in the company. They allow you to advance and grow which I really love. The pay is great and the people I work with are kind and really help you.
Office lunch parties, own company vehicle, great pay
Customers can cancel at any second and it hurts my pay check
