    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Orkin (Chicago, IL) in March 2019.

    Interview

    The process started out with a basic 30 minute phone screening. The women who interviewed me was very friendly. She informed me at the end of the phone that she was pushing me along to the next and final round of interviews. However, I week went by and I hadn’t heard from anyone. I reached back out to her to let her know that I was still interested and asked when I could expect to hear from someone again and she never responded.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Orkin.

    Interview

    So this position was in Chicago. We met at Starbucks with the branch manager. From there they called me and told me I had the job and that’s when you officially fill out the application. They run your background check and from there you go on a ride along which is cool! I met with the district manager who was a total bad guy. They told me I had the job and the next day to me they went with another candidate. The sad part is I put in my two weeks at my current job. This company has no class for that and you don’t play with people like this. They look you in the eye and lie to you. No remorse and the gm knew I quit my job because he called and told me I had the job. Old school company! You cannot have a beard but it seems there is a good chance to make money if you know how to build a good pipeline. thanks Krugman
