My head is spinning right now as I heard the same rumor from two folks, both told me that we may have layoffs in Memphis.

Yeah- can't believe those idiots fell for that brain washing in the 80's and 90's while we made off with the riches.
Another day, another surprise, there are folks that think that job reductions may happen in corporate in Memphis.
What is the likelihood of ServiceMaster Global layoffs in Memphis in 2016? Please let me know if you have any information.
I keep seeing all the SM ads on TV. Are we really getting a bang for our bucks on these ads?
I also remember RK.One of the Wheaton Boys who sucked up to CWP. He couldn't manage a bake sale but kept getting promoted after the Memphis group got rid of him and eventually ran the management services division into the ground. Was intimidated by... read more
I heard Rob is totally retired. I was several levels below him and although funny, he didn't know the business at all and was reluctant to engage in conversations with customers because of it so he simply stayed in the home office and bounced a... read more
I heard that SM is going to outsource their IT dept. Overseas? True?
Another round of layoffs going on today. Just heard from a friend affected.
Hey, whatever happened to that little midget, Rob Keith. He certainly was a funny guy but couldn't manage a bake sale. Just wondering if the dwarf is still with ServiceMaster. Got to give it to him, he survived by hiring the Chairman and the CEO's... read more
just curious if current employees have heard anything about there being continued layoffs for the rest of the year?
65 actual workers were cut. 40 open vacant positions will not be filled. The corporate will be reorged. This more or less boils down to 10% of the overall staff. Trugreen will be spun off, it's independent as of 1/4 anyway.
Many dear friends are still there. Used to be a great company. Who's affected by the cuts? What locations? What levels? What a shame.

IT, HR, and other misc. positions have been eliminated today and rumor is that they are not finished yet either. Expect more layoffs tomorrow and Friday, especially tomorrow..
So far we've lost at least two Network Engineers and the director of Service Management. Not sure who the others are or how many.
I heard they are laying off a large group today.
we should let everyone go and start from scratch - servicemaster is not a well managed company
We cut around 300 people, almost 100 in corporate office (Memphis). Layoffs continue, but we are doing much better now days.
The new ServiceMaster has leaders who promote individuals based on performance. The old ServiceMaster promoted cronies who attended the same church in Wheaton, IL and were given the keys to run the company and they ran it into the ground. One... read more
ServiceMaster is awesome - except when they let you go. My job was eliminated in 2009 and the whole process was handled very poorly - HR was bad and my mgr was just silent, they did not handle my case very well.
