Pest Control Technician Interview

Anonymous Employee in Honolulu, HI
Accepted Offer
Positive Experience
Average Interview

Application

I applied online. I interviewed at Orkin (Honolulu, HI) in March 2014.

Interview

Interviewed in front of a panel of 3 people. The Branch Manager, and two Operations Managers. Branch Manager briefly described the position, and then asked "Tell me about yourself". After answering the first question, each person took turns asking me a situational or personality based question. Approximately 6 to 8 questions were asked. Afterwards I was asked if I had any questions, then that was it. I followed up the interview by emailing the Branch Manager and thanking him and his team for considering me for the position, and for the interview. I received a call later that day offering me the position.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 7+ months. I interviewed at Orkin (Alexandria, LA).

    Interview

    LONG and drawn out. The Branch manager dragged his feet for 7+ Months to finally make a decision and extend and offer. A lot of things that were described or promised in the interview process actually happened or were even true. They fail to actually tell you what is really expected... They are looking for incompetent "miracle working" Criminals because the management are crooks.

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Orkin (Tampa, FL) in April 2014.

    Interview

    Basic questions about dealing with public and related experience in the field. Two gentlemen conducted the interview. In addition, I had to complete a more detailed application at the conclusion of the interview. Overall, I think the interview was more about dealing with the public than actual job skills.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Orkin (Pearland, TX) in July 2014.

    Interview

    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.
