No family life, company demands are unrealistic. Constantly setting up employees for failure. Never know what the company policies are, approved materials to use, company does not pay bills in timely matter so logbook info is always at least 3 months behind. I have had to go to city halls and pick up business licenses myself, because company doesn’t pay their bills. I have been asking for the last five years why we can’t get licenses, and insurance documents in a timely matter for our customers, the response I get is we are just to big. I worked for a company bought by Rentokil for 22 years, I’m sad to say I hate going to work now, and currently looking for employment elsewhere. I’m so embarrassed wearing the uniform, because of the reputation now of the company. Use to be a fun place to work that provided quality service. Now it’s all about District and Regional Management getting their bonuses at customer, and employees expense.
Might as well sleep in your work clothes, eat, sleep, work, repeat. No family life at all. Not worth the pay for the headache and demand.
They acquire a company all skilled techs leave they replace them with nothing . Out of state call centers infuriate costomers . Regional managers are bean counters with no practical management abilities . Do yourself a favor and stay away
No communication, colleagues are rude to each other. Not a healthy environment.
Having to take care of a last second job that came in even if you were at home relaxing out of uniform.

Lack of consistency, poor communication, deplorable systems and unrealistic expectations/timeliness for work to be completed by employees. At the end of the day, we are humans not robots...there are limits.
