Terminix May Be Ripping Off Technicians

If you are a Technician for Terminix, then the following employer reviews from Indeed.com—from prior Terminix technicians—may sound very familiar:

  • One summed up his experience with one word: “refuel” and described his job as follows: “check out my truck oil, brakes, tires, write down miles. meet a office 645am i am ALWAYS early. print my work orders for the day. load my truck with material for todays work order. call the customer to make sure the property is accessible.
  • Another wrote: “They won’t work with you and they pretend to be your friends during your interviews and make you want to work with them, but once your in they work your to the bones . Go in at 8:00am to 8:00 pm . You don’t get to have a lunch cause you have stops back to back to back.”
  • And another unhappy former Technician wrote: “They don’t care about you or what you got going on. Want a raise? Yeah right. Good luck with that. They want you to be licensed, be around chemical, take all the risk of fines and chemical exposure, but yet pay you like you work at Denny’s. Matter fact, you probably get paid more at Dennys. The pay isnt worth the BS they put u thru, with the TOTD and drive times between each stop it doesnt add up.”

As a Terminix Technician, you truly understand what it means to work hard. You work very long hours and sacrifice your relationship with your family in the process. You spend large chunks of your life maintaining your company truck, driving from site to site, and performing physical labor throughout the day. It really is a thankless job, but you do it to bring a paycheck home to your family.

Unfortunately, you may not be getting all the money that you may be entitled to from Terminix. For example, Terminix does not count the amount of time you spend in your truck or maintaining your company truck as work hours. In other words, all of the hours you spend driving from job to job, loading your truck with equipment, cleaning your truck, and making sure your truck is maintained are off the clock. As a result, Terminix may be unlawfully depriving you of overtime pay, which is considered wage theft.
