Job Description

Pest Control Technician

Busting bugs has its benefits-like a company-provided truck, gas and phone. Benefits including a 401(k) with a company match. Flexible compensation packages include completive hourly rate or annual compensation (depending on role and shift).

But it’s more than that. It’s serving with a smile. It’s having your teammates’ backs. It’s going above and beyond and making a difference. We step in and step up when people have problems they can’t fix, and they need pros. We crush their pest problems and lift their spirits.

Are you a hard worker? Can you follow direction, adapt to change, and solve problems? Are you organized, friendly, and motivated to succeed? That’s a great place to start.

As a Pest control Technician, here’s what you can expect:

  • You won’t be tied to a desk
  • When you first join Terminix Nation, you’ll spend a few months in training
  • You’ll get rewarded with competitive pay and robust benefits
  • You’ll be part of a community
  • You’ll be onboarded and trained by our best & brightest

 What your days will look like

Roll up your sleeves and get ready to learn how we take care of customers. You’ll become an expert in applying our company products so they’re safe and effective

Are you a good driver? As a technician, your office is the cab of your Terminix truck. You’ll use it on calls and take it home, too. Same goes for your Terminix phone. We trust our technicians.

You’ll 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? That’s okay. We provide training and support to ensure you’re comfortable using state-of-the-art tools. You’ll also need to have strong communication skills so you can email, text, call, talk, and write effectively. There is also paperwork.

There’s an opportunity to grow into a role you’re passionate about and fits your skillset-whether that’s management, a move to sales, or another opportunity at Terminix.
