Registered Pest Control Start Technician (Current Employee) – Sterling, VA – March 3, 2014
Its a very busy and fast place to work. The great thing is your out and about talking with your customers and making them happy. The down side is that you have numbers that have to be meet if not they you could be in trouble.
Senior Customer Service Representative (Current Employee) – Glendale, AZ 85305 – October 16, 2018
The company call center is a nice environment. They have lots of calls come in, particularly from spring to early fall. Management is typically friendly and easy to approach. Pay is very good, considering you aren't required to have any certifications.
lots of contests and incentives
Can be replaced quickly due to poor scorecard performance, parking at Westgate Entertainment District is awful
DEPARTMENT COORDINATOR (Former Employee) – Metairie, LA – October 16, 2018
I really enjoyed my job. The people I worked directly with were great people. I gained a lot of experience and skills over the years, thankful for that. Unfortunately the management there thought it was time for us to part ways as I was no longer seen as needed in the future of their company. The management there could use some ethical classes on how to speak to the employees as they always came across rude and never spoke of their appreciation only pointed out faults. That in fact was the hardest part of my job. Overall it was a great place to work up until the management changed about 2 years ago. I absolutely love having a purpose in life and getting up knowing I have a job depending on me to be there!
Everything at Terminix started out pretty good. pay was decent and was told you can work all the overtime you want but of course when winter hits stuff slows down but was expected. Thrown on a route with salary pay and told that if a customer cancels we take it out of your commission even if you had noting to do with them canceling it’s your fault regardless. Things started to pick up once the cancellations were removed from the pay plan wich made everyone jump for joy so for the next few months pay was amazing but once a couple bad apples ruined it for ruined it for everyone or the company realized they are paying everyone more than they wanted too, hard telling on that one we can’t get a straight answer from any of the managers, now we are all being punished. stops and route sizes were cut down to more than half of the amount and everyone’s checks are a quarter there amount than before and we are ALL being told it is OUR FAULT it’s this way now that we are being forced to take a pay cut and we have to deal with it. You guys all did this to yourselves. You want more money then sell something so we can fill our pockets and you suffer. I don’t see how anyone in management at this company sleeps at night knowing just how much they screwed with everyone’s lives. I honestly don’t understand how this can even be legal. The managers don’t even know how to answer a phone And when they do you are usually told to Just figure it out for yourself in laymen’s terms. All we are is a number. Make them money while you suffer. If I could go somewhere else I would but I can’t afford to at thismore... time. God help us all.less
Take truck home, gas card
Pay plan constantly changing, broken technology, inconsistent pay, management, work life balance, hours, favoritism

Pest Technician (Former Employee) – Newtown, PA – October 1, 2018
I worked for Terminix for 6 months . In that time 10 employees quit. This was mostly due to the management. they also pay badly. It's 14 dollars an hour plus no less than 10 hour days. They also say weekend off. That is a lie they want you to work every weekend Over all they are understaffed and overwork you . they will take full advantage of you anyway they can.
management lies and will take advantage of you, pay is bad
Osp (Former Employee) – Orlando, FL – September 28, 2018
They expect you to cold call after you've worked 11 hours a day. You are told you will get inbound leads but you are lucky to get 2 a week. The hours versus pay are below minimum wage and working 6 days a week gets tiresome. You are told you only have to work 2 sat a month but an emergency will come up and you are expected to work. A lack of organization has you driving all over as they don't have the ability to set appointments in the same area and assign the top leads to the people who have been there the longest which results in a high turnover rate for everyone else.
Secretary (Former Employee) – Greenville, MS – September 28, 2018
Enjoyed working here. The work was easy and I enjoyed learning about post control remedies. I was laid off when a new computer system was installed that eliminated my position, due to rerouting customer service calls to a call center.
Outside Sales Representative (Former Employee) – Oklahoma City, OK – September 26, 2018
It was by far the worst work experience I’ve ever had. Management, both on a regional level and the branch are completely incompetent. I’ve never seen a more micro management for no benefit. They hired and fired 6 outside people in less than two years. With another transferring into a service role. They make up sales quotas that are impossible to achieve. As they provide little to no sales training or support.
PEST TECHNICIAN (Current Employee) – Boston, MA and McKinney, TX – September 25, 2018
Hours can be long,you mostly drive from job to job. I've learned to look at each house as a puzzle to best treat them. Management is a little weak,but could be better. The best part of the job is helping people solve their pest problem.
Sales Representative / Customer Service (Former Employee) – Laurel, MD – September 24, 2018
I worked in sales, which was a great job for a couple summers, but we often had issues with corporate miscommunication or technicians simply not following the instructions we left them on our contracts. I think the company could really benefit from allowing more interaction between sales and operations.
Our current leadership cares and are trying to improve the environment and pay for lower level employees. Just like any Fortune 500 company, sometimes politics come into play. I would like to progress on a path that's not normally sought to transition from field operations to corporate; hopefully it works out.
Performance is rewarded
Limited progression from front line management to upper within company
