    Branch Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Anonymous Employee
    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 8 weeksinterviewed at Orkin.

    Interview Details

    Horribly long process and full of steps like a meeting with the company shrink (Yes, a contracted psychologist). The company justifies the long process but for the position it seems unreasonable and exceeds the expectation for what is reasonable.

    All in all, it was not a good fit.

    Pest Control Technician Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Pearland, TX
    Anonymous Employee in Pearland, TX
    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Orkin in July 2014.

    Interview Details

    Can you pass a drug test, physical, and background was the first question? Manager asked how old I was and if I thought I could work out in the hot weather. I was doing less talking and more listening, as a matter of fact I really did not get to talk much. I felt like I was being sold the job. The person interviewing was from region and he was very quiet and awkward.

    Branch Account Executive Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Tampa, FL
    Anonymous Employee in Tampa, FL
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Orkin in March 2014.

    Interview Details

    I was contacted by the Branch Manager for an interview, the statement on the phone by the manager was that exceptional sales people make over 100K. I went to the interview and all the questions were standard and I was offered a job. I reveiwed the compensation plan, the business expense policy, and the ramp plan. The Ramp plan is very poor, 60 days to get upto speed to make good commissions is very short, the expense policy is substandard. I do believe you can make 100K annually selling however it will take 6 months to build up the pipeline. I turned down the offer.

    Interview Questions
    • How would I attack/plan the territory to maximize results   Answer Question
    Reasons for Declining

    The Ramp up policy was too short for success and the expense policy is too small for what they expect

    Commercial Account Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Memphis, TN
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Memphis, TN
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Orkin.

    Interview Details

    When I got hired, the process began with a phone interview with HR. The second interview was with the Region Manager, and the final interview was with the District Manager who ultimately extended the offer. There were clear cut avenues for advancement which still exist in other divisions, but not so much in the South Central Division. (I was hired when the branch was part of the southeastern division.). Everyone was very friendly, and I developed great relationships that I still maintain today with some folks. The culture is that of team work and getting the customer taken care of. Customer Service is Paramount, and they are clearly looking for people who share theses values.

    Interview Questions
    • Did not really encounter one. Interview was straight forward.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    There was no negotiation. They have a set Salary plan. Take it or leave it.
