Decent company, hard branch to work for in multifamily
Lead Specialty Pest Control and Termite Technician (Current Employee) – Carrollton, TX – September 18, 2016
Prior to being steamrolled by Rollins inc (Orkin), the company I worked for was family oriented, but didn't pay well over the long term. When Orkin took over, the added benefits of insurance and the ability to make commissions and production checks was a good reason to stick around. However, the multifamily branch consists of servicing apartment complexes. The ever changing management and inability to meet every single need of every single apartment manager immediately, ultimately leads to a high stress work environment. Why? Apartment technicians start calling in sick every couple of days, which ties up the specialty group, which causes services to be missed, deadlines to go unchecked, and develops a general dissension in the workplace over time. Compound that with work injuries, lack of communication between staff and guys on the road, and heavy traffic on a day to day basis, and you have a recipe for a branch that looks more like the Titanic, then a productive facet of the corporation.
production checks, take home vehicles
god awful scheduling tactics, lack of communication, fatigue
