    I have been working at Orkin full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Employer has your future in mind, not just the future of the company. Well driven plans and goals.

    Cons

    The only hurdle we encounter is trying to get over the paper vs paperless process. We have been working very hard to become paperless. but this proves to be "process"

    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.
