“The pest industry is not just for men,” says Aleshia Smith, the Culture & Inclusion Manager at Terminix. “We relish the opportunity to teach and train anyone to be a trusted advisor of pest management. Our teams of professionally-trained technicians, sales professionals, quality auditors, and managers on our frontline are what contributes to our success,” she elaborates. “We protect our customers, their families, businesses and homes from potential threats by offering free consultations and flexible solutions for an array of services.”

And nixing pests is just the beginning — Terminix is more than a termite and pest control company.

As for their employees, Terminix offers great perks, advancement opportunities, and a culture that you’ll want to make a beeline toward.

When Smith reflects on what sets Terminix apart, she points to “our long-standing history and our team-oriented spirit. These are recession-proof and helped us build a legacy that has lasted nearly 100 years.”

“We operate out of different branches, in different cities and communities in different states, but strive to work as a cohesive team,”  Smith adds. “We establish relationships with our customers that make them like family. We know when a child goes off to college, or a customer changes jobs, or gets a new family pet. But being a part of Terminix Nation gives an individual the strength of being part of a much larger team.” This supportive culture is driven by Terminix’s six core values:

  1. Do the Right Thing 

  2. Be Customer Centered

  3. Lead with Respect and Humility

  4. Be Inclusive

  5. Compete, Grow, Win 

  6. Get it Done the Terminix Way

Growing an inclusive culture with great perks.

Terminix is proud of their global workforce, which spans a diversity of nationalities, languages, cultural backgrounds, races, genders, ages, physical abilities and educational backgrounds. The company seeks to foster an inclusive work environment, one that values the contributions of everyone. 

“We are working to ensure that we create an inclusive, welcoming environment where each teammate feels comfortable bringing their best self to work,”  Smith notes. “We want to support teammates in their individual journeys and provide support and development in reaching their goals.”

That’s because Terminix believes that inclusion inspires results. “Perspectives from a diverse workforce can provide key insights into selling to varied and different communities, providing numerous avenues for the growth of the business and improved customer satisfaction,” the company explains.

One example of Terminix’s push for an inclusive culture is their Business Resource Groups (BRGs), which represent various cultures, ethnicities, backgrounds, interests and orientations. These groups promote awareness of diverse teammate perspectives and cooperation across all of the businesses and levels of the company. For instance, their Women’s Business Resource Group strives to highlight opportunities for training, experience and support that enable women teammates to overcome obstacles, maximize their potential and increase the sphere of influence within the organization and the communities where they work and live.

“Our BRGs allow individual contributors to step into a leadership role no matter where they sit in the company,”  Smith said. “These leaders are paired with an executive sponsor for personal and professional development opportunities. It’s pretty cool to be able to lead your peers and advocate for different causes while being supported professionally!”

Additionally, the company supports their employees with comprehensive benefits and career-development opportunities.Benefits you’ll love include, the opportunity for flexible work, comprehensive maternity and parental leave programs, flexible spending accounts for dependent care, competitive pay, a 401(k) program with company match, discounted products and services like gym memberships, pet insurance, student loan repayment assistance and much more!
