    I worked at Rentokil Initial full-time

    Pros

    Provide good PPE and any equipment you may ask for.

    Cons

    Rentokil Pest Control claim to be 'the experts in pest control' however they are a bunch of cowboys. Infact- I can guarantee that most five star reviews on here are fake- as they also pay their technicians/staff to get fake five star reviews on trust pilot and google etc. Nobody wants to do a proper job or honest days work. The management are lazy, two-faced and do not want the best for you. They will make you look bad just to make themselves look better. There is no work life balance. You are automatically assumed to work overtime. The pay is the lowest in the industry. I didn't realise how miserable the branch was making until I left. I think there are many unhappy people who work for them as most employees will spend most of their time complaining about the company. The also have a very high turnover of staff which says it all really. I don't recommend working for these at all. If you like pest control then definitely chose a different company who will look after you better.
