Pest Control Technician in Chantilly, VA
on October 18, 2018
Management makes or breaks the job
Preforming your route was generally easy going, sometimes because overbearing when office overloads your day. Management is hit or miss based on location. Coworkers usually get along and build strong bonds. It is manual labor so it does sometimes become hard physically. The money is what makes it enjoyable .

Orkin is a great company to work for. The pay is pretty decent for the work that I do. The only complaint that I have is how many hours a week I have to work, feels like I don’t have a home life very often.

Its a great place to work and they are team oriented company. You control somethings on your route and change with the company comes every month. Overall its a great place to work

Technicians are unappreciated and undervalued and just seen as replaceable bodies. No pay increases or big bonuses for Technicians. Management get big bonuses off all the work technicians do. Work 6 days one weekend off a month.
Route Manager in Williston, VT
on May 26, 2021
If you want to work hard, this is a pretty good gig. It's pretty easy and straightforward once you get the hang of it. Fairly repetitive on the daily, but sometimes the job will require some creativity. Making relationships with the customers is fun, and I've made some friends during the time I spent there. I left because I had a better job opportunity working in my field of interest (not pest control). Don't kid yourself though, this job is hard work. You drive a truck every work day and every other saturday, you generally go to somewhere between 7 and 15 addresses a day (I've had days where I needed to only do a couple of addresses and another day I had to service 20, but these are outside of the norm). You have to climb up into attics, into crawlspaces, and check for pest activity. You also have to handle pesticides and chemicals - so if you're not good at that, probably look elsewhere as pesticide exposure isn't a joke. The sales scheme is a gimmick and isn't really honest, so I didn't really sell, however, the pay is good enough that you can make a living without selling anything, if you're bad at it or not interested in that aspect.Definitely have some gripes with this job, there's a higher than normal level of disorganization and frustration, however, it's really good work experience, and at the end of the day you go home being proud that you did actual work for people that actually needed your help. Pest control is a very valuable and necessary service in our society.Note that this company expands at major crises as business generally skyrockets when people aren't working and spending time at home, so if you need a reliable job - this one is for you!Only thing to keep in mind - if you have other daily commitments get ready to get frustrated over this. You generally have no idea at what time you're coming home as there's no predicting how long your day is going to be, as this is completely up to what is going at each house you visit.
