Which Pest Control Company Should I Work For?

I was offered a job with two companies both in the pest control field. I have no experience but both have good incentives. The first is Terminix which is offering me 11.25 an hour and the other is a company called Titan which pays 10. With Terminix I will be a termite technician which according to the Titan owner will be harder work than what he is asking of me. The Titan owner wants me to be strictly pest control. The Titan manager says I won't feel like selling any more termite inspections at the end of the day if I go with Terminx so in the long run he says I will make more with him because I can go door to door and make more comission. On the other hand Terminix is more established. I should put out there transportation is an issue for me and I will get the truck sooner with Titan Pest Control. I feel like I would have more advancement opportunities with Terminix. I can't lean towards one or the other so I need any pest control proffessionals out there to help as to what they would do. Thank you for your time
