Technician in Manchester, Greater Manchester

The company is great, management is helpful and no two days are the same
I have loved my time so far at Rentokil. It has been exciting, fast paced and you gain extra qualifications. All the team are friendly and you do get trained up well to do the job. I came straight from University after completing my masters.

Stressful and soul destroying
After spending 3 years at rentokil i have seen the good the bad and the ugly. During the first year everything is great, training is second to none.After settling in on patch you will be hounded with emails from management and key accounts managers regarding unattainable KPI’s. There is a complete lack of respect for technicians.During the first wave of COVID a lot of customer sites were closed, management told the team that you need to get as many routines as possible signed of or you can go into one of the London hospitals on patch and clean the control points. This is a prime example of the view management have for technicians. If your silly enough to sign up you had better be a sucker for punishment

OK place to work
Good work life balance , able to manage your own diary, company car and laptop, good people, can be expensive compared to the market, but leading name so to be expected

Over worked, under paided, constant pressure, no appreciation, no rewards or bonuses, management non exsistant.
My time at rentokil was okay until after about a year after that your just a number. Staff turnover was joke, the longest staff member tech wise was a year! Over worked and under paided with no bonuses. No appreciation for the amount of pressure and work expected. Management was non exsistant. When I left I didn’t get paided until 2 weeks later and was bled dry of wages owed. The place is run by grads who are guaranteed a management role within 6 months and non grads are just pushed aside. Would no recommend at all if you want to actually have a rewarding career in pest control. Constantly bombarded with emails and phone wanting more and more and never rewarded for the hard work. Never hit bonus targets within the branch due to unrealistic targets set by the company.
