Cons: shorts breaks

A lot of turn overs of management team. My coworkers work as a team and always had each other back. I have learned a lot about insects and rodents.

Cons: no time for breaks/lunches, driving more than 100mi per day, the weather & 14-16hr days
Terminix is an amazing company to work for. What the company itself stands for is breath catching. We Honor God in All We Do. How great is that! What does this mean you might ask...well simply put it means We Do The Right Thing. In this company you will meet a diverse set of people with different beliefs. You will also experience the heartbreak at viewing – more... how some real people live. The job although strenuous and demanding is very rewarding. The feeling of helping someone is empowering. If you love working with people this is a company to consider. – less
Supervisor (Former Employee), Tampa's Net Park – June 27, 2013
Pros: leaving this cesspool of hell.
Cons: taking this job over another i was offered.
This call center strives for "World Class". Its more like "World Class Ghetto". Management changes policy everyday. Write-ups are an everyday event. Every employee was written up for the month of May-2013. The district managers hate each other and each day try to make the other look bad. Supervisors are not trained, there is no Resource Management Group, – more... and the QA group is a joke. Ask for a company handbook, and your name gets added to the "get rid of" list.
The 78 y/o HR rep cannot remember conversations he has while conducting so called "investigations". This organization is a cesspool of harassment & discrimination. The EEOC has conducted two investigations in the short time I was there. There will be more, I'm sure. Don't waste your time with this company. They are horrible to their staff and even worse to their customers.
So glad that I'm gone. The worst three months of my life. – less

Route Manager (Former Employee), Pantego, TX – June 19, 2013
Pros: good money
Cons: harsh management
Not for the faint of heart, long hours, management styles are very harsh. My issue was more with the last manager. He would not fix payroll issues. When I left I gave my two week notice. Never had a discipline issue. I was put as a non rehire due to the manager at that time having an issue with me. He also changed the termination date so I was not fully – more... vested in my 401k. It cost me a good bit of money. I would hope this would not be true of all branches of the company. – less
Customer Service Representative (Current Employee), unknown – June 11, 2013
Pros: get paid every friday, easy job, decent pay
Cons: management, short lunches, changing supervisors every other month
A typical day at work will be to clock in and start taking back to back calls. Getting yelled at constantly by customers. I learned patience and great customer service skills. Management is horrible. Constanly sending emails threatning to terminate you for little things also always receiving emails about meeting stats. The hardest part of the job is – more... having to deal with rude customers. The most enjoyable part of the day is clocking out and leaving the pits of hell. – less

I truly enjoyed working with my boss. There was nothing hard about the job and I enjoyed coming to work on a daily basis. I also reqpected and had good friendships with my co-workers. I learned a lot about the legal side of HR
Inbound Sales & Marketing Specialist (Former Employee), Norcross, GA – May 22, 2013
The job was interesting. I learned enough about pest. I was never envious of management they had a hard job. If quota was not met there jobs are in jeopardy an there was a team of 20 members to manager. My co-worker made the day go by a lot faster. The customer we talked to on a daily basis, never left us without something new to try or to loose. The – more... best part was sharing best practices. The hardest part of the job is the uncertainty. The most enjoyable part of the job was the bonus and the monthly commissions. – less
