Terminix recently acquired a few companies in my area. My co-workers and I were also acquired as part of that buyout. It’s been a nightmare since. We are expected to not only do the jobs (15-18 per day), but we are expected to schedule the customer and make pre-calls and post calls to customers. When Terminix acquired my former employer,…

I was hired at Terminix as a svc Manager. 5 days a week and every other Saturday half day. They didn’t inform me that 5 days a week really meant 7A to 7Poo and techs calling you up to 930pm at night. If you can’t work those hours then your not a team member and that’s what they need is…

I worked for Terminix (4 years) as a technician. I do believe that maybe when the company started was decent one, however now in days there’s no structure, support for employees and my branch lacked integrity and ethics from branch management to supervisor and technicians. (Not all). We would have periodic meetings and it was time to pick up supplies…

I worked for Terminix for a little over a year. It was a last resort position. First of all, after working pest control I know now what a ripoff it is. There is no reason to charge a customer $100 4 times a year when the customer could do the service himself. All the add ons were ridiculous, Terminix thinks…

Work with Terminix in Ok. Have been in pest control for 6+ Years (not with Terminix for all of them) and I have to say it is not a business for the customers or employees. The pay plan was terrible and if you had a bad area barely made any extra money. The new pay plan is an improvement to…

Been with Terminix under a year. It’s been a complete nightmare! I’ve been made to feel like I can’t get along with anyone, yet get 10 consistently in customer reviews. It started in the branch I began in. It is the good ole boy system all day long. It’s not about what’s right but about who is friends with the…

Ocala, Florida Wow, after reading all the other complaints posted, it has eased my mind a little.  I always thought it was only happening in Ocala, FL.  I worked almost six treacherous months in the Ocala branch.

My husband is very unhappy, he works for Terminix, comes home at 7 or 8 at night, does not get paid for the hours he does doing office work.  He worked a 10-hour day in the field and was only paid for a five-hour day. This is the nonsense that Terminix puts my husband through.

Worked for 6 months. Was horrible. Forced to work ungodly hours, had to deal with Silvercreek sales firm who does door knocking to generate sales.  They would lie about how the contracts were stated and led customers to believe it was a one-shot deal and they would never see pests as long as they live in that home after one…

New York I too work for Terminix and feel sorry for the customers.  Their termite baiting system is fraud; many of the baits that replace the original baits have no chemicals to kill the termites.  It just feeds them.
