The job overall is very simple. The hardest part is talking with customers. The company tells you that your schedule is 7:30am - 4:30pm, but you almost always worked over that, especially if you were seasonal. Because I worked in southern NH I was told I was required to get a Mass Pesticide License, but according to other service techs I wasn't. Luckily some of the drives in the morning were nice, but it seemed unreasonable to require workers to drive over 1 hour and 30 minutes, especially when you were told you'll be servicing a certain area, and that location is outside of it. I doubt I was the closest service tech available. The work load can be a lot at times, especially when you have the same number of jobs no matter how big the property or house was. There were definitely times that I thought that the job should have 2 techs at least. The equipment is lackluster. They definitely need to upgrade them for some of the properties you service. As long as you do what you need to, management seems to leave you alone. Most of the time you'll be contacting your manager if you have questions, ran out of supplies while servicing, need your equipment repaired, or to tell them that it started to rain, as you can't do any exterior services if it rains. Overall you tend to be just a number, except to other techs you meet.
Bad place to work. They will bulk hire during the busy season and then fire a few people once the season slows down, rinse and repeat. Micromanaging is inane, work place environment is terrible and the pay is pretty awful for the workload. 1/10 would not recommend.
I have been working as a Customer Support Agent in the office for almost 3 years. I was originally hired on as a seasonal employee and was just looking for some place I could get my foot in the door fast as a single mother of 2. I was hired in 2020 right before the pandemic, and was laid off half way through my training. I did not expect to get a call back once things settled but I did! They took the time to remember me, my work ethic through training and called stating " please tell us you didn't find another job". I am very happy I didn't. Since then, I have exceeded in my job, taking on many rolls from different departments and learning far more then I could have thought possible. I come from a manufacturing background and Customer Service was not something I had a ton of experience in. They took their time with me and really believed I was worth the time it took to train so I was successful. I now belong to a family of amazing people, that I get to have both a business relationship with and personal friends I have met along the way. A few words that come to mind when talking about the management team are devoted, appreciative, and supportive. Not a single day I have walked into work wondering what my purpose was, and always feel appreciated. We do a lot of fun things as well which is a huge plus like Canobie Lake Park Family Appreciation Trips, Potlucks, Bowling, and Pizza Monday's once a month! If you are thinking of making a career change and pest control is not something you would typically be interested in, well, me either. I gave it a shot and now have a wonderful work life balance, with my children and family being my number one and also JP's number one priority.
I enjoyed my time at JP Pest and I would recommend anyone who is looking for a rewarding position to apply. Everyone is very supportive and always willing to help. You are basically on your own and trusted to do your work. Everything you need is provided for you.
