Terminix Employee, a Concerned Father, Tells about Toxic Work Environment at Terminix
Current and former Terminix employees often contact TerminixComplaints.com to reveal the unfair working conditions, share the unethical business practices, and more. In this time of uncertainty, it appears Terminix still cares less about their people than it does their bottom line.
On the condition of anonymity, a Terminix employee working in New England contacted us and shared his story. We’ll call him “JC.” From what he tells us, the way Terminix has approached their employees during the COVID-19 crisis seems to threaten their financial security, their wellness, and their job security.
“How about how Terminix can tell us we are not getting our raise on April 1st as promised (it’s been frozen until October 1st) during the covid-19 pandemic, when families are especially stressed financially? Technicians are told to come to work and do the exterior service whether or not the customer approves it. We are so-called “essential.” Preventative pest control. Really? Some pest control, I agree, is essential, but preventative, I don’t think so.
Then there’s the stress of walking into homes, not knowing what you’re going to come in contact with, because not all the jobs are exterior. And Terminix is going to say, sorry your wife or husband is not working right now, but we can’t afford at this time to provide you a maximum of 2% increase in your paycheck. I work in an office all day. Thank goodness for sanitizing wipes to wipe down the door knob every time someone goes in and out. Oh wait, I ordered them but they’re on backorder and who knows when they’ll come in.
Not to mention, just before my son’s doctor ordered my son get tested for covid-19, my immediate supervisor said to me and I quote, “Just between you and me, anyone who goes out for this pandemic, it will count against them.” Hmmm.. I wonder how this will affect me? On our monthly meeting via phone, the first thing out
of his mouth is soon this whole Corona thing will be over and we’ll all look back and say, “wow did we overreact!”
This is just the most evil company I’ve ever worked for. I’ll be looking for a new job while in isolation waiting for my son’s results. Don’t get a job here.”
Are you a good employee treated poorly by Terminix? Are you a good person who was asked to do questionable things by the company? Do you have a story like JC’s that exposes Terminix? We’re listening. Tell us here.
