Please Do Not ever work for Springfield NJ office
Pest Control Technician (Former Employee), Roselle, NJJanuary 31, 2015
Pros: none not even the pay is worth it
Cons: worse managers in the company. branch has been last for 5 yrs in a row.
This IS the worst branch in the region! There were too many broken promises from management. Service and Sales managers don't know what they are doing! You have NO personal time. They expects you to work constantly without question. Their work weeks are 6 days and they want you to be on call. Kiss any family life good bye. You cannot rely on anything management says. Long hours for very little pay and they keep changing your commission percentage. If you're looking for a job please do not come to this branch.

Sold a bill of goods
Outside Sales (Former Employee), MarylandJanuary 26, 2015
Promises not kept, "good ole boy" feel, the "religious" culture put forth makes going to work feel like going to church. Cultural, social, and gender diversity is certainly not celebrated. Be prepared to work from sun up to sun down six days a week. Based on the number of hours you work you may not make more then $2 an hour add paying for your own gas to the mix and some months you put out more than you're paid.

Not recommended for family oriented person
Employee (Former Employee), WVJanuary 13, 2015
Terrible hours. Terrible Management. Company does not compensate the valuable employees that they currently have. They do not care about the customers they currently have. They only care about the $. Worked many years with this company only to quit before I had a nervous breakdown due to upper management negligence.

Commercial Route Supervisor (Current Employee), Grand Rapids, MiJanuary 13, 2015
If you are able to multi-task and good at customer service, this is a great place to work. Just pass your state licensing and they set you up for a good career.

Worked long hours doing backbreaking labor.
Fumigation Specialist (Former Employee), San Diego, CAJanuary 6, 2015
Pros: medical insurance and 401k
Cons: no room for growth, little pay.
The bright side to this job was that everyday you experienced something different. Got to see every neighborhood in san diego county. But the physical nature of fumigation takes a toll on your body. The risk of falling off of roofs was on a daily basis. And it didn't seem worth that risk for $11.00/hour. The most enjoyable part of the job was laughing with my coworkers.

Sales (Former Employee), Dallas, TxDecember 30, 2014
Pros: limited freedom to make sales happen.
Cons: poor pay, use of own vehicle, poor management
I was employed by Terminix for 5 yrs in sales. Money varies depending on the season. I have been gone for 4 years and from what I understand it is still the same. You have 4 to 6 salesman going after the same nut. Keep in mind you pay your own fuel and drive your own vehicle. With that said someone else makes your schedule and I found that this "other person" making schedule did not own after map. One could drive 200 miles after day and not have one credible appointment. This is a commissioned job. You are paid on a draw just as most car salesmen. On average you have to sale 13k a month to break even on draw. This does not include fuel. If you make a sale you are paid 2 or 3 % of sale for fuel. So it is in your best interest to prequalify your leads....problem....pre qualifying is a big "do not do." Your management will make or break you. Some care....Some don't. Just depends on branch. If you like little to no recognition for Selling above and beyond, want to make 40k a year after expenses, work six days a week and run a vehicle into the ground this might be the position for you. In short what I found as my overall view of the company and how they view sales/sale man is if they throw enough mud at the wall some will stick. Some won't. Turn over is huge. New sale men every 3 months or so.

Working at Terminix Pest Control...
Field Representative (Current Employee), Fairfield, CADecember 29, 2014
Pros: pay, individually driven, flexible hours
Cons: management
A typical day at work varies; you could be done by noon, or you could be out until past 7 o' clock. The company pays for all necessary training and licensing needed, but if you get placed on a route with "unsatisfactory customers", be prepared to take a ration of you-know-what every day you check in. The co-workers vary between branch to branch, but the hardest part is dealing with ignorant people, and then taking the blame for it, no matter WHAT. The most enjoyable part of the job would have to be the pay, if you have a good route and good customers, you'll make good money. If you get stuck with a bad route with customers who are hard to deal with, won't pay their bills, or cancel, be prepared to make barely enough to make it through the month.
