meet great people selling potential high
Sales Account Management (Former Employee) –  Kalamazoo, MIOctober 13, 2017
Lots of fun working the team is helpful in teaching and training is great you are given two months to train and go out in the territory with veteran staff to teach you the business of selling and inspecting. For sales job the inside sales took a lot of business from outside sale team and that cause a lot of us to leave to look for something else for the paycheck went down from 4,000 to average. Other wise out side sales in great to do for the company.
Pros
can make a lot on comminsion
Cons
inside sales team can take your business

Tough company to work for, expectations exceed the pay
Exterminator (Current Employee) –  Farmville, NCOctober 9, 2017
There are some perks like driving a company truck with a gas card and service card, that is a huge benefit, outside of that, it is hard work, long hours, and mediocre pay for the amount of hours and work involved.
Pros
Company truck
Cons
Long hours, working in all weather

Service Manger (Former Employee) –  Chico, CAOctober 9, 2017
For the most part this was a great place to work. Terminix allowed me to advance through many different positions within the branch that I worked. Local management was excellent but the corporate level is disconnected from their people in the field and put expectations that caused local management grief constantly.
Pros
Atmosphere within assigned branch
Cons
Expectations from Corporate level

Terminix Tech Experience
Pest Control Technician (Former Employee) –  Norcross, GAOctober 5, 2017
Its a pretty good place to work. They provide you with all the tools you need to be successful in the company. Not very family oriented from my experience but the pay is decent.I believe The managers really want the techs to succeed for the most part at least and the managers are reasonable. From my experience the other techs were really cool and fun to work with.
Pros
professional/respected company and decent pay
Cons
Not family oriented and you work a lot of hours

Bad Management
Account Executive (Former Employee) –  West Palm Beach, FLOctober 4, 2017
Sales Manager self centered ego manic condescending of fellow employees poor management skills watched 7 employees quit after he became manager gives poor advice suprised he is still has a job. 6 day work week if you need time off he punishes you by taking leads away. Uses his power to to abuse sales reps. Uncomfortable work environment under this Sales Manager. Stay away from this branch. Encouraged to lie to customers and raise prices on Ipad then lower so you can make a deal. Stay away.

Something to have until you find something better
Senior Customer Service Rep (Current Employee) –  Lewisville, TXOctober 2, 2017
Good job to have if you need work. High turnover rate. if you like phones. Growth is slow and non-stop calls depending on the department you're in. unless you're not looking to grow and advance I would recommend finding other work.

Commercial Sales Professional (Former Employee) –  Denver, COSeptember 26, 2017
Managers and service technicians compete directly with salespeople for sales and commissions. They benefit greatly from sales from your territory when you quit / are terminated. Sales turnover is a sales feeding frenzy for the service department and management - it's rigged!

The training and support from management is lacking and the culture is hostile.

Fundamentally, every salesperson is going door to door asking strangers if they are willing to hire Terminix to kill their rats. So - try using that line at your next backyard barbecue or pool party when someone asks you what you do for a living.
Pros
Rats are frequently killed
Cons
Sometimes you do the killing.
