Fantastic company to work for. They truly respect each individual each person is important and business ideals don’t seem to trump personal ideals in RENTOKIL you can truly train up in different sectors of the industry to become a more valuable employee increasing your skill set in RENTOKIL is very valuable

Treat you as a number,only after the dollar.Clients don't seem too be important,long as they pay. As a technician you are only as good as your last job to them .
Cons
Under pressure

Didn't leave on good terms we were told everyone has the same rules but majority of office staff and some management stole sales quite regularly an made personal phone calls and used company internet to video call family overseas also was told to leave office on numerous occasions so a personal phone call could be made so a lot of double standards I left feeling bullied stressed

Good things - Own vehicle to look after, own phone for each technician

Challanges - No work/life balance, busy, squashed schedule. Not required to but have to do some inspection reports in own time, because they don't allow enough time during the day. Once I leave, I won't be back.
Pros
Look after technicians with accomodation food, while traveling away
Cons
To much traveling away from home, lots of bugs can be challanging, like termites and birds.

Their is no start and finish time long days and the supervisors sit back and reap the rewards of all the hard work done by the technicians what is required on a daily basis is a joke especially when you have traffic
Pros
Phone
Cons
Long hours and don’t get paid

this job is ok, it pays the bills that's all I can say
they make you work hard, bonus you get a company van to take home

you can get some good benefits by putting in sales leads but if they go through you get commissions out of that but that means way more work for you to do.

you get a bonus if you get all your months work done in time but its not worth the effort you put in its pretty lousy bonus for a multi billion $ company
Pros
company van
Cons
hard work very tiring

The place was fun to work at and I only left as I'm moving away.

Managers were supportive, workload was sizeable and some of the benefits for making leads and looking after my customers let me earn more money.


They all look after you and often help, although some of the junior managers don't always have time for you.


You learn loads about effective Pest Control and the industry, and I would work there again.
Pros
Earning potential / Opportunity to learn
Cons
Lots of work to get done / Traffic is often a problem

The management is only and I repeat only concerned about the bottom line fair enough as it is a Public Company. The people who work there are really great except a few individuals.
Pros
It was a positive vibe
Cons
Lack of structure with regards to forward progression

Only left due to relocating to another State. Great working environment but minimal growth opportunities. Great people in the Team and support from Sales Manager. Targets not very realistic though.

I applied for a job with this horrible company I got a call to come in for a interview the lady who did my interview at the main office in port melbourne said the job is mine she will ring me with all the details and I heard nothing after that, she wouldn't answer any of my calls or emails. A company not to be trusted.
Pros

Cons
Long hours and not much pay
