I am looking for a better environment
Service Manager (Current Employee) –  West Berlin, NJAugust 15, 2018
It's a corporate environment. When you are left alone to perform your job without being giving too much busy work, it is a great job. Realistically the expectations are unrealistic, you are threatened and written up for what you can not control. It is a culture of fear that they call the Terminix Family.
Pros
they promote from within but they don't pay you well. It's experience though.
Cons
Healthcare plans are mediocre, micromanagement

The job is as good as its employees
Outside Sales Representative (Current Employee) –  Abilene, TXAugust 14, 2018
The job has a lot of turnover at my branch, mainly because it is a physically demanding job that isn't for everyone.

Branch management doesn't seem to be very positive, and is under a lot of stress from their managers.
Pros
As long as you get results, you're pretty much left alone
Cons
Management is often unabailable for support, they're seemingly on conference calls all day long

Pros
Working alone, being out of office
Cons
Having to stay self motivated, and having to upselling other services.

Fast Paced Job

Fast paced job working a lot of hours and pay is decent only if you get into certain roles. Summer time you are worked silly and it finally slows down in the winter.

Not what it once was
Service Manager (Current Employee) –  Not disclosingAugust 11, 2018
When the new president, Matt Stevenson, came in there was hope that Terminix would finally get back to the basics. Nope. The bureaucracy just keeps growing. We have a bunch of upper management that just can't seem to get a clue on how to run a pest control company. There is so much ineffectual work that they want service managers to do, that there isn't time to get to it all unless you want to consistently work 12-14 hour days. Getting promoted is starting to feel like it is a "who you know" deal.
Pros
The peopleI I work with. Health insurance isn't terrible.
Cons
The lack of experience at the top.

Great old school corporation
Commercial Sales Manager (Former Employee) –  Monterey, CAAugust 9, 2018
This organization is run on old school conventional sales and markenting tactics, but is very effective at lead generation and closing techniques. They have an exceptional training program for all positions and invest heavily in their management trainee program. Top notch for old school biz ops.

Busy fast pace independent work enviroment
Pest Control Service Technician (Current Employee) –  Aston, PAJuly 29, 2018
Always a full day of work. A lot of one on one customer contact. Management is very hands off, unless they need to be involved. Monthly meeting is the only time you are with other members of the branch.
Pros
Independent work enviroment
Cons
If you are successful at route completion, you will complete someone elses route.

Trash place don’t water your time
Termite Technician (Former Employee) –  Huntington, WVJuly 28, 2018
Would never work here again and feel sorry for anyone who does. This place is so hard to work at do to the fact that they want you to work from sun up to sun down while your only getting paid 10.00 dollars a hour. It’s bacl breaking work and not worth the pay

decent job if you like working solo
Pest Control Technician (Former Employee) –  Sulphur Springs, TXJuly 27, 2018
start early. honestly the job is what you personally make it. sometimes it can be overwhelming but if you are good at mapping out your day then you got it made. you get the freedom of being alone most of the day and you encounter all walks of life as a tech. there is a busy season where no matter how good you are you will be putting in a ton of hours like dawn till dusk of non stop treating homes and making sales leads and driving
Pros
company vehicle, gas card, branch and company incentives
Cons
long hours

Super hardcore demanding of their employees
