Fun and friendly work environment for seasonal crew
Seasonal Laboratory and Field Technician (Former Employee) –  Roselle, ILFebruary 6, 2016
You start very early in the morning (before or around 6 am) but your work day concludes in the early afternoon which is nice. You learn so much about mosquitoes and the environmental impact they hold. It's a part of science you don't really think about but it was all interesting. The seasonal crew are all very nice and friendly and would help you with anything if you asked. Very welcoming place overall. The lab director is very hard working and accommodating. The hardest part of the job will be the early hours and spending time with a lot of bugs. But the most enjoyable part will be learning so much from so many wonderful people.
Pros
Good pay, lunch breaks, friendly coworkers, getting to be outside, work shift ends in the afternoon
Cons
Getting up super early, being around a lot of mosquitoes, no real advancement opportunities

Field Inspector (Former Employee) –  Chicago, ILMarch 2, 2015
Clarke is a company which focuses on controlling mosquito populations. I was responsible for driving around the greater chicago area and sampling various bodies of water for mosquito larvae. The majority of the time I worked alone, but was promoted to promote the company's organic initiatives. The most difficult part of the job was getting bitten by the adult form, and the most enjoyable part was exploring forests and natural areas for water bodies.
Pros
exploring natural and rural areas
Cons
getting bitten by mosquitos

Outdoor work environment
Aquatic Weeds Control Technichan (Current Employee) –  Palatka, FLAugust 23, 2012
Workdays are long consisting of long drives to and from job sites. All work is done outdoors using some hazardous chemicals. The job teaches how to properly identify and control weeds, grasses, and algaes using proper chemical mixes. The job also teaches safe boat and ATV handling. The management is great allowing flexibility in scheduling and training. Time management is judged by the employee and little upper management is involved with trusted employees. Co-workers are all hard working and knowledgeably. The hardest part of the job is dealing with the heat, rain, and other elements of the weather on a daily basis. The most enjoyable part of the job is the amount of freedom that is allowed in making daily decisions on job sites.
Pros
little management is required
Cons
long drives and weather
