I thought I would submit some of the wrongs I have seen since I have been at Terminix. I have seen my branch operate without a license even though they knew they needed one.  I am a tech, and I still work here. I have been here for over 14 years, so I have seen all types of things.  I was forced to get the licenses for my branch since the managers were not qualified to take the test or  they could not pass it.  I have seen them transport fumigants without cdl’s (Vikane).  I never seem to get paid for my honest sales yet they still get on the books and given to other techs who won’t even show up to do service. My paycheck is ALWAYS wrong; but when I point it out, I am told I am a penny pincher and to shut up. My check is always short $300-400 a month. They love to hire new people and just put them in a truck without any real training. When you try to say something, you are termed a troublemaker, etc. I have been threatened to be fired so many times your mind just gets used to it. My managers only last a few months till they are fired or quit. I just try nowadays to do my route the best I can and don’t say anything.  It is just easier to do that.  I don’t know how I have made it all these years, but I know I can never retire from here. Everyone has a breaking  point, I just have not reached mine yet.

If you have been wronged by Terminix or another termite company, you don't have to fight alone.
