    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Orkin (Hingham, MA) in December 2016.

    Interview

    I applied on indeed by submitting my resume. I was then told to fill out the online application. From there I had an in person interview where the interviewer was 10 minutes late. The interviewer was the head of the branch and had not even looked at my resume. I ran the interview from my end having to explain what I have done. After the interview a week went by, I was put in contact with the regional manager who planned an interview then cancelled it. I did not hear back for rescheduling

    Branch Manager Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at Orkin in November 2016.

    Interview

    Terribly long process in my case over four months. Pay for your own travel! I traveled many miles, bought a lot of gas and used two vacation days. Met with Psychologist told a great fit for the company after three interviews comes to final interview. Interview scheduled three weeks in advance and the Regional manager never calls to nail down the time after I have already used a day of vacation to drive another two hours out of my way. Then lies to me that he thought I called to schedule and never showed up. How is that possible, someone by the same name called you to schedule an interview? Unbelievable that at that level he was incapable of scheduling an interview and unable to discern two candidates? Very unprofessional to say the least and not someone I would ever want to work for. Lesson learned if you have to pay your way to interview it’s not worth your time. Steer clear of management with Orkin!
