Creepy crawlies and contented customers.

Busting bugs has its benefits.

Company-provided truck, gas, and phone.

Annual earning potential of $75,000 or more within five years.

But its more than that.

Its serving with a smile.

As a Pest Control Technician, heres what you can expect

Youll be the face of Terminix to your local community (with the backing of a national brand), and your clients will count on you to protect their businesses, their homes, and their families.

When you first join Terminix Nation, youll spend a few months in training.

Once youve got that and some state required licenses and certificates under your belt, youll take the lead with your own customers.

Youll get rewarded with competitive pay and robust benefits to cover you and your family.

As a teammate, you will be eligible for a 401(k) with company match, company-paid life insurance, tuition reimbursement, and a generous student loan repayment program.

You put in the work, and youll reap the rewards.

Youll be part of a community bonus points if youre already a leader in yours.

Our bonds are strong at Terminix Nation and the relationships we develop in the communities we serve are unparalleled.

Our teammates give back through volunteering, donations, scholarships, and more.

Youll be onboarded and trained by the best of em.

Youll get paid to get licensed, something youll have for a lifetime.

Youll know how to bust bugs at home, too.

What your days will look like

Roll up your sleeves and get ready to learn how we take care of customers.

Youll become an expert in applying our company products so theyre safe and effective.

Are you a good driver?

As a technician, your office is the cab of your Terminix truck.

Youll use it on calls and take it home, too.

Same goes for your Terminix phone.

We trust our technicians.

Youll be responsible for building relationships with customers, scheduling and confirming their appointments, helping with sales to current customers, and expanding our product to new customers.

Does technology scare you?

Thats okay.

We provide training and support to ensure youre comfortable using state-of-the-art tools.

Youll also need to have strong communication skills so that you can email, text, call, talk, and write effectively.

Oh, and sometimes theres paperwork.

Theres an opportunity to grow into a role youre passionate about and fits your skillset whether thats management, a move to sales, or another opportunity at Terminix.

Some non-negotiables

There are some things youll just need to have or know to join Terminix Nation as a Pest Control Technician.

High school diploma or GED; or one to three months related experience and/or training; or equivalent combination of education and experience.

Solid reading, writing, and verbal communication skills and the ability to present information in both internal and external settings.

Some basic math skills add, subtract, multiply, and divide in all units of measure, using whole numbers, common fractions, and decimals.

Youll need to be able to follow instructions for mixing on product labels.

With the help of Terminix (and with the company footing the bill), youll need to maintain the licenses/certificates as required by federal, state, and/or local regulations.

And youll need a valid drivers license.

Straight talk about the physical demands of our work

Were not going to sugarcoat it.

The essential functions of this job have some physical demands (of course, reasonable accommodations may be made to enable individuals with disabilities to perform the essential functions.) Heres what we mean:

Youve got to be able to move up to 10 lbs.

regularly and 1120 lbs.

frequently, whether thats lifting, carrying, pushing, pulling, or otherwise repositioning objects.

Youll move around a lot regularly sitting, climbing, balancing, stooping, kneeling, crouching, and crawling.

Youll go up and down stairs, ladders, scaffolding, ramps, and poles.

And youll need to keep your balance when walking, standing, or crouching on narrow, slippery, or moving surfaces.

(Youll definitely get your steps in.)

You must be able to safely operate a motor vehicle and make sure it and all other equipment is kept clean.

The vision to perform detail-oriented activities at distances close to the eyes or within arms reach.

Sometimes youll need to wear personal protective equipment (PPE), like an OSHA-compliant respirator, and youll need to be okay with regularly working in confined spaces, narrow aisles, or passageways (you know, where critters live).

Work conditions

Pests dont always live in nice places and thats where we do our work.

But dont worry well prepare you with all you need to do the work as safely and as comfortably as possible.

Youll need to be able to work both inside and outside in your local climate in company-provided weather gear.

Youll sometimes be working around mechanical parts, vehicles, electrical current, heights and scaffolding, fumes, dust, and chemicals, and well train you how to handle all of these conditions safely.

This is kind of a no-brainer youll be around animals and insects.

And youll have to be okay with working in tight, confined spaces, narrow aisles, or passageways like you might find in crawl spaces.

We work where the critters live.

To join Terminix Nation, youll need to meet state and federal regulations and company safety requirements.

Terminix companies are proud to be Equal Opportunity Employers.
