Orkin - Florida, Miami Beach - Horrible service

Posted: 2015-07-24 by    one of msny unsatisfied customers
Complaint Rating:  0 % with 0 votes
I manage a 140 unit building in Miami Beach, every year we pay thousands of dollars for termite insurance policy. Which is supposed to cover us for yearly inspections and treatment of any affected areas. This however isn't the case. When we call for an inspection and or treatment the calls, emails and text message always go unanswered for months. The only way we get anything is when we call the corporate office and the get the local salesperson on the line to speak to us. He'll then promise to take care of the problem while corporate is still on the line, but goes on not doing anything...

I had a good experience working at Orkin other then 1 particular salesman who regularly unsold work. All but one of the supervisors I had were great and I highly respect them. I worked at 2 different branches a mixed residential and commercial branch, and a straight commercial branch so I believe I have a little more experience with them then some folks commenting might....

Hello so if you think orkin is on the up and up think again.. There own area supervisor is lower then low. He was contacted about one of his employees who was not doing his job. That employee would come in and act like he was doing something like spraying but he was not . So when the supervisor was sent out to look at the problem he caused more of problems. Or tried to anyway.. He came in to my house and drilled me on what was going on he asked me to show him to my room where he picked up my bed and dropped bed bugs in my bed.. YES HE DROPPED BED BUGS IN MY BED ALL BECAUSE I COMPLAINED ABOUT HIS...

I startted a contract with Orkin for pest control in Dec 2010. we have not received good service from the beginning. I have had to call every month to have our service taken care of since April it is now July. The lady that answers the phone says they don't do services the same time each month. I told her that was understandable but monthly service would be every four to five weeks not six or seven. I am constantly getting the run around from this company and am not at all pleased with their service. I do not recommend this company to anyone....

Orkin - Waste of money

These people have NO idea what a Guarantee is! They use the word but they don't actually guarantee anything! The commercial says that If the customer isn't satisfied they aren't satisfied. BULL!!! Do not waste your money!

I received an initial treatment and a week later more bugs! Had to call for a second treatment 1-2 weeks later, more bugs! I didn't even have an infestation and they couldn't even help me with that. Sad! I saw absolutely NO results! They have a 30 day (so called) guarantee, so they will keep coming back within the 30 days. However if you...

orkin employee came and sprayed my house and killed my fishes. I call them and made a complaint and I got the run around. Shortly after that I recieved a call from a lady name Jody. Her number is 404-327-9708 telling me that I need to set up an appointment for them to come and do an annual inspection. I told her about the matter, and she put her manager on the phone. He made me promises that he would come out himself and spray my house for free. I never seen the man infact after that, they cancelled my contract without any penalty. I give them months without contacting them. Now im ready to sue...

I am also a former employee of Orkin and let me tell you almost all of the negative comments for mentioned are absolutely, positively true. I thought maybe it was just the branch I worked for but after reading over the comments made by other Pest technicians, I can clearly see that it wasn't just by branch but the entire corporation. I spent approximately three long grueling years with an unappreciative staff that only wanted more, more and then more, well you get the point, from you. During the interview process they will tell you anything to get you to join their team, but you will soon find...

This company is pathetic. So like i saw their commercial on TV soo i thought it must be an alright company. how VERY wrong i was.

I called them for a "whole house termite control" and they said that they would come over for an inspection on tuesday. We wanted to get rid of our termites as soon as possible because we have to move out of our aparment already. So we waited ALL day for the orkin inspector and they didnt show up! we called them and they said we never made the call and never set up an inspection!

How wrong they were! i knoe full well that the lady on the...

I had an appointment scheduled for 2-4 PM today. I left work early to attend this appointment because I wanted the individual to actually deal with pest control issues IN the home as well as outside the home. At 4:00 PM I called because no one had showed. I was put on hold for 30 minutes without anyone helping me. At 4:30 PM I called back to say no one had come. They said they would contact my Pest Control Service Person and get back with me in 5-10 minutes. At 5:30 PM (1 hour) I still had not been called so I called back. That's when they said they couldn't contact the individual and...

Orkin - Orkin ignores current termites

I have had annual termite service from Orkin for several years. On 6-14-08 my home was fumigated. On 2-3-09 the Orkin inspector told me I have termites in the table in my dining room. This implies the fumigation was ineffective. Since 2-3-09 Orkin will not return my calls. I have called many times and spoken to a secretary who says the person I need to speak to is busy or in a meeting. Meanwhile my property is being damaged. At a minimum, I need to have the house fumigated a second time. This will be costly....

Orkin - Worst ran company on planet earth

Very Long hours, little pay, horrible benefits, bad managers who take advantage of everyone that works for them, both heartless & relentless. They are extremely harsh on employees - Buy your own uniform, pay for all calls you make to customers, run you on trucks THEY make YOU pay for. Run you on trucks with bald tires, expect you to make all calls to customers on your time and with your money and expect you to work no less than 60 hours per week including Saturdays!...
