Working for Terminix wouldn't be all that bad if Terminix would not lie to their employees.

Terminix has thier employees over loaded with work, and less time to perform a service. Customers are very displeased with Terminix and all the new changes. We take alot crap from upper management to keep on goal. There isn't any room for us to perform extra service's because our routes are too large. In order to complete our services we are having to work long hours 12 hour days 15 to 17 stops in a day. Terminix use to be all about family and relations. What happened? greed? money?

Take it from an employee who is battling everday to keep above water and balance a home outside of work. YOUR KILLING THE ONES WHO ARE MAKING YOU RICH!!!!!!!!

"Honor God in all you do". The Terminix rule. It's all about the buck for them. Last year they crossed a billion dollars, and when they brought that to our attention in a congratulations meeting, they followed up with requesting $10 from any employee who wished to have a Christmas party.

if you have to go to the hospital for a pacemaker, and you work for terminix, can terminix fire/lay you off, due to the pacemaker?

It's all about a fast buck and forget the home owner's needs! This company should be investigated by the DOA, OSHA, CALOSHA, DOT, and every Federal Agency! They take to many short cuts and if you complaint, YOUR FIRED! Terminix, loves to sweep everything under the carpet or distort the truth from surfacing.

I hate terminix !!!! They do not take car of their employees.They fired my husband one day before his vacation was to start. Their reason "he discussed company policy wuth a customer". Actually the customer was dissatisfied with the treatment of terminix and my husband told him to read over his policy and call the person that handles his claim.They also fired him 2 years ago for moving and not telling the right person.They will fire you for no reason and don't need one. They do not care if you have a family and no job. I just hope my husband can find a new job where he will be treated with a little more respect. And by the way no they did not give him his vacation pay.

The One- I hope you take them down. They are satan. Terminix treats employees like trash. Even those of us who hit our numbers some of the time (a small minority) we still are subjected to ridicule and high stress environment.
They crap on customers and employees at will. Somehow they get away with stealing commission from drivers. Their metrics are so convoluted it lends itself to corporate thievery!!!
