Anyone have the time to list out the pros and cons of the two listed positions. Any one out there know how their salary positions work and commission? Any details would be VERY helpful

I worked for Orkin for 7 years in 4 offices and would definately take a job as a technician over sales. My last year as a technician I earned almost 60,000 while the top salesman earned only 47,000. I also worked a whole lot less hours than the sales force. It also depends how populated your service area is, my service area was a 10 sq. mi. area in Brentwood, TN. Some routes cover several counties and reduce your ability to earn commission due to travel time. In this instance sales may be a better option. Salary positions are for management only. I also worked for Orkin as a manager, that is why I am no longer with the company. Whatever you decide do not let them talk you into a management position!
