This was a great place to work. If you enjoy a high stress and fast moving position with many unpredictable challenges then I would recommend working for this company. There is opportunity to grow here and you can request for training. This company encourages growth and training for it's employees, but it is a very demanding and often stressful job. The bulk of your customers will have just gone through difficult situations and your job is to help, but you can only assist within the scope of their elected insurance policy. You must become very skilled at deescalating your clients. Conflict resolution is an absolute necessity.

The Memphis Open Presented by ServiceMaster was a great experience for me. The internship was unpaid and about 3 months long. We the first two and a half months were mostly promotional events or handing out flyers and such to promote the tournament. Tournament week I had responsibilities that were very broad, anywhere from operations to ticket sales. The hardest part of the job was just the hours of the tournament week. I logged about 70 hours that week.
Was a great experience to work in the restoration field however hard to move up and learn new skills
accts receivable (Former Employee) – Fortson, GA – September 7, 2016
Over all my experience with my fellow coworkers and management team was great. This company had all the incentives such as insurance benefits. Its not a company one can move up in rank with the pay grade expected.
Healthcare, great atmosphere and Christmas parties were awesome
President of Greenville Operations (Current Employee) – Greenville, SC – September 7, 2016
This was a franchise. I enjoyed making the most of each opportunity. I was able to hire and fire who I saw fit. People that will work and do a good job are hard to come by. Finding people takes a larger portion of my energy than I wished it did.
Company paid lunches, golf outings, great support with corporate
Janitorial Worker (Former Employee) – Virginia Beach, VA – August 28, 2016
I work between 6-10 pm on Mondays-Fridays. I don't have to work on weekends. The most enjoyable part of the job are taking out trash, vacuuming, and mopping floors. The hardest part of the job is working within a time limit.
Cleaner (Former Employee) – York, PA – August 24, 2016
If you are applying for a cleaning position and they tell you there is no heavy lifting make sure you get it in writing. A few of us were told this just to find out after hiring that we had to lift heavy teachers desks and FILLED filing cabinets. This has the potential to injure workers and start a WC claim. There is no problem lifting 50 lbs but they do not tell you it is continuous. Also was told they had men to do the heavier stuff but they were no where to be found when needed but did show up to look good when the customer dropped by.
Management should be honest and ethical or they will always be hiring.
Worked with some nice people that deserve better
Noone can lift over 50 lbs constantly for too long without injury
team leader (Former Employee) – Carrollton, TX – August 5, 2016
it was not a very good fit for me because of the travel, it spent most of my pay for gas going to and from the job sites and that was really upsetting for me and sometimes driving other workers back home and not getting paid for that
ServiceMaster had no structure or work flow. I was brought in to help build structure and work flow and within 2 years 3 managers and one owner resigned. As I was trying to move forward in the structure and work flow I was very limited as what I was able to do as money to better the company was always a problem. The techs did not have properly working tools or safety equipment.
Restoration Specialist (Former Employee) – Kennewick, WA – June 27, 2016
The most enjoyable part of the job was when there was an abundance of work to be done. If there were no house fires or water damaged homes then there was no work. I can't really blame the company for lack of work to be done when there are no house fires.
Regional Operations Supervisor (Former Employee) – Paragould, AR – June 16, 2016
Worked with a great group of people. Clients were satisfied with work. Employees loved the employee appreciation day that was instituted while I was there. Busy from the start until the finish. Short-staffed constantly.
short staffed, no incentives given to employees to remain
