High School All Over Again
Analyst (Former Employee) –  Memphis, TNSeptember 5, 2017
The mean girls/good ole boys club will make your work life less than desirable the second you try to voice your own opinion or think for yourself. Hoping the new CEO can turn the place around and give voice and credit to the people actually doing the work (service technicians, call center reps, etc) , not the managers sitting in offices running useless reports, "improving" things that don't need to be improved on and taking credit for the employees' visions.
Pros
N/a
Cons
A very divided culture, almost a caste system with a hierarchy that is not to be questioned.

Director National Accounts (Former Employee) –  Memphis, TNSeptember 1, 2017

Long hours, not enouhgh equipment
Pest control technician (Former Employee) –  Trenton, NJAugust 30, 2017
Long days due to last minute stops being added also never had enough chemical to complete jobs correctly. Lack of chemicals and equipment was due to the branch trying to save money which would mean a lot of call backs for extra services which the technician does not get paid for.
Pros

Cons
Long hours

Inspector (Former Employee) –  Louisville, KYAugust 28, 2017
The job was fun and met a lot of people. I learned of other people's life while I was meeting them and learned on how to quickly get things done. The hardest thing was to meet people and then not wondering how they are doing later in life.

enjoyed working in the office
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) –  Myrtle Beach, SCAugust 28, 2017
So many years ago, I set up appointments for techs, a lot of customer service, filing, heavy phones etc. Kept records on all customers. Set sales appointments and follow-ups. Filing, deposits. Called overdue customers. No real advancement in this job.
The hardest part was getting appointments set up.I enjoyed working with the people in the office
Pros
nice people to work with
Cons
not enough pay

Very little support
Sales (Current Employee) –  Austin, TXAugust 27, 2017
Thrown to the wolves, corporate doesn't care. Seemed like every month corporate would de-incentivize the sales teams. Can make good money and have a good schedule if you put the work in.
Pros
flexible schedule, work day is always different
Cons
management and training is a joke

Management never communicated amongst eachother
Pest Control Technician (Former Employee) –  Palm Springs, CAAugust 25, 2017
Service Manager and Branch Manager butted heads often, gave opposite directions to employees, I was a tech who was in charge of training other techs, I was up for the job but legally, I shouldnt be able to do so, they werent the type to get their hands dirty and the branch manager MIGHT have shown up 2/5 days a week.
Pros
company vehicle
Cons
low, low pay for vast travel and hard labor in attics in 120 degree weather

Keyman (Former Employee) –  Camden, SCAugust 24, 2017
You can work any hours you want.
Call your own customers.
Develop a client relationship.
Create a bond with customers.
Hardest part of the job is you have to have the drive to be your own boss.
Pros
Any hours

Not a good place to work
Outside Sales Professional (Inspector) (Current Employee) –  San Diego, CAAugust 23, 2017
I had 5-6 scheduled Termite inspection stops daily. I inspected the home/business and if any Wood destroying organism, insects or rodents activity was found, I would propose a resolution and recommendation to resolve their issue after determining the cost .It is a very difficult and physically demanding job- crawling under homes and into attics. I enjoyed the challenges of working for Terminix.
Pros
Independence and interacting with many people thoughout my day
Cons
Limited future advancement

good place to start.
Pest Control Technician (Current Employee) –  Pleasanton, CAAugust 21, 2017
this is a good job if you have no family or personal life to speak of. the hours are excessive and the amount of stops per day means you cant always do your job properly do to time constraints.managment is never around when you need help with customer issues and scheduling constraints.
Pros
pay can be good
Cons

Days are very fast paced. Good management, but communication and onboarding wasn't very good. Very long hours during the busy season (12+ per day).

Terrible
Route Technician (Former Employee) –  St. Louis Park, MNAugust 19, 2017
If you would like to work at a micro managed daycare center this is the job for you, it will be great at first but once you are in it will be a an absolute nightmare, very inefficient route planning, if you have a family I don't recommend working here cause it will eventually tear it apart, just like it started with mine I had to leave. Been with them for almost 4 years and I've seen about 30 to 35 people come and go (and they are fully staffed with 9 techs) covering half the state of Minnesota that should tell you something. There turnover is very high. I'm only being honest to who apply
Pros
If customers dont cancel its good money, if your a commission payed tech
Cons
Very poor route planning (efficiency), high turnover
