I am a past employee of orkin pest control from a few years ago... If you are considering a career with this company, I urge you to reconsider! While at the interview they make it sound like it's the best job on earth! When in reality it is anything but! If you take a job with this company, be prepared to work very long hours with no compensation! When I worked there I put in an excess of 55 to 60 hours a week, 6 days a week...
Most people would think, "well it's a lot of hours, but at least you make alot of money from overtime!" wrong! They pay you on a production basis, which means you make a percentage of the production you make for the day... Which is a very small percentage! What does this mean? That's right... No overtime pay whatsoever! The company realizes this and takes advantage of their employees because they can legally work their employees 60 hours a week and not have to pay any extra out of their own pocket! Aside from that, the benefits from the job are horrific! They do offer medical, dental, life... Etc... But the coverage is so unbelieveably horrible it's not even worth getting! They do have company vehicles of which you have restricted use, (which means you can only use it for work purposes and that's it!) which would be fine, except they take out a hefty amount out of your own pay for using their trucks to do their work! If you are caught using it for other purposes other than work, there are hefty consequences! And don't think you can just use it anyway and get away with it... Nope... They have gps units equipped on every vehicle so they know your every move! Any extra expenses required for work (i.E. Cell phone calls [of which they require from you everyday]tolls, work uniforms, and basically anything else aside from gas, you are required to pay out of your own pocket with no reimbursement from the company.
All this combined with heartless management makes this an all around horrible company to work for! Leaving the company was the smartest decision i've ever made! And if you are considering employment with them, I strongly urge you to reconsider.
