route manager (Former Employee), sarasota, fl – September 9, 2014
Pros: good training. good 401k. decent benefits
Cons: low pay. looong hours. poor mgmt.
Training is good. And thats where the positives end.
You are paid based on production. The more accounts you get to, the more you are paid. The problem is they never have enough bodies to handle the customer call backs so you are constantly going back to retreat customer's homes/business' and you don't get paid for those. Fall behind on your route – more... and you have to work on Saturdays. You have to schedule your appointments on your own time, tons of paperwork etc etv...So.... 6 days a week, low pay (avg 10-11/hr), ridiculous uniforms, poor mgmt and the always looming layoff/firing for no reason speak clearly. STAY AWAY – less
Contractor (Current Employee), Atlanta, GA – August 25, 2014
Pros: some nice co-workers
Cons: poor benefits, little incentives
This company makes men wear 2 colors of shirts, blue and white with a black tie. Ladies must wear pantyhose. People are written up if they do not "punch in" (scan building entry cards) exactly on time. 10 days maximum of vacation time that only starts to accrue 6 months after employment. This never increases no matter how long you work there. No maternity – more... leave for women. They must enroll in short term disability PRIOR to pregnancy in order to collect any money during their leave. Your work experience will depend on which department you fall under. IT people get laid off left and right. Absolutely no perks aside from the paycheck. – less
Telecommunications Financial Analyst (Current Employee), Atlanta, GA – July 29, 2014
Pros: flexible and fun work environment
Cons: difficult to justify merit increases based on performance and role.
The work environment is flexible and fun. Management creates an open door policy which affords an opportunity to establish new ideas and implement new processes and procedures. The annual reveiws are consistent. At times the compensation may not be congruent with the role fulfilled. Not only that, in certain circumstances, it can be difficult to justify – more... a merit increase based on performance and the role fulfilled. – less
Wildlife/Pest Control Technician (Former Employee), Marietta, GA – February 20, 2014
Pros: enjoyed meeting a lot of my customers
Cons: management, pay, long hours
Your pay will barely be minimum wage when you consider working the very long hours because of the drive time, the fact that you have to call and schedule each appointment yourself, all the paperwork that has to be filled out when you get home and then the after hours meetings. It is understandable when a company is concerned with profits and making – more... money, but when it becomes detrimental to your ability to provide proper customer service, something needs to change. Management is not helpful at all and is very overextended. – less
The company is okay at best. The commission gained from the sales is the only reason I've stayed. The management is unorganized and they tend to change the rules in the middle of the season. Hard to get a full time position here.
HRSC Agent II (Former Employee), Atlanta, GA – October 5, 2013
Pros: outside training with skillpath - rockhurst university for continuing education.
Cons: turning applicant's down.
Some days was fast pace, when your the first line of defense for getting applicant's hired for the branches and corporate office having to making sure that there background was clear for hire. Also being able to answer question on physical and drug testing. Being able to work closely with management and the law department. The hardest part was turning – more... down someone for employment because of there background. The must rewarding is when you can follow that applicant all the way thru the process and then later meet them.
I will truly miss my co-workers we were really a family. – less
Systems Administrator (Current Employee), Atlanta, GA – April 3, 2013
I have enjoyed working for Rollins, Inc. I would like to expand my knowledge and expertise in working more with Kronos. However, I feel that growth is important and I would like to continue my growth. It has been a difficult but exciting decision. I look forward to learning more and expanding my knowledge of the software side.
Intern (Former Employee), Atlanta, GA – February 13, 2013
Pros: great people, comfortable environment, very professional, learning experience
My time at Rollins was short, but full of so many lessons. A typical day at work for me included trouble shooting issues for branches, closing tickets, answering calls and a little testing. On the soft skills side of things I learned about professionalism, phone etiquette, and organization just to name a few. As far as hard skills I learned about regression – more... testing, mobile devices, remote software and help desk issue tracking software. The management was great, very organized and hands on. My co-workers were more like family, they made my time there one for the history books because of their helpfulness and positive feedback. The hardest part of the job for me would have to be the fast pace because my internship was held at a project site, there was so much going on at once you just had to hit the ground running. We made so much progress and I was just happy to be a part of all of the hard work. The most enjoyable part of the job to me was the people because of how inviting they were and how willing they were to lend a hand. I would have to say the people really made my internship great. – less
Warranty Consultant (Former Employee), Houston, TX – May 16, 2012
Pros: paid training, discount services
Cons: job insecurity, job duration.
Is a good company to work for, the only problem is they don't consider the employee as well as other companies that I have worked for or that I know of. The employee is subject to a policy of no support in regards to job security. In the short period of time I worked for this company I acknowledged several changes of good employees for their revolving – more... door policy in Human Resources. – less
