As a previous employee for the farmingdale location working as a water technicion i can honestly say i dont reccomend anyone to work for this branch. As a employee not only can your hourly pay rate change weekly depending on how the company does, everyday you are not guranteed work. If the sales people can luckily sell a overpriced job than maybe you can go on a job while others stay at the shop sweeping for 5 hours waiting for a job to book. The first month you will train at 15 a hr than once you get a phone and comission starts your hourly will change to 11 a hr and go up depending on how many jobs your boss puts you on. If he likes you. To make it even better make sure to write down all the hóurs you work because for some reason a common WEEKLY OVERLOOK happens so every week your check may be missing a few 0's

As a corporate branch (vs. franchise branch), it is corporate policy that ALL technicians (drain cleaners, plumbers, restoration, excavation, etc.) MUST be clean shaven every day. First impressions are lasting. Not all branches enforced this policy.

We offer flexible work schedules to suit your busy life. Obviously, most of our service requests come in during normal business hours, so we staff up to meet demand during our busiest times. However, we provide 24-hour service, so we also get a number of evening, weekend and overnight calls too. Night schedules work best for some employees, while others prefer the day shift. Still others would rather work weekends and have a couple weekdays off to take care of children, etc. Whatever your situation is, we can probably accommodate it with a schedule that works for you.

Yes, Roto-Rooter uses third-party partner labs to conduct a urinalysis test to screen for illegal drug use. It typically takes a day or two for the results to come back. A criminal background check is also conducted by a third party and that typically takes about a week to complete.
