Orkin – Why Work For Us?


We’ve Been Here From The Beginning

Founded in 1901 by 14-year-old Otto Orkin, we have more than 100 years of experience in pest control services and are leaders in the industry, specializing in protection against common pests, including termites, rodents, and insects.

In addition to pest control, we also offer integrated plans to help protect the whole home, including insulation and moisture control services.

Orkin is a wholly owned subsidiary of Rollins, Inc., (NYSE: ROL), headquartered in Atlanta, Ga.

We employ nearly 8,000 team members in more than 400 locations in the United States, Canada, Mexico, Europe, Central America, South America, the Middle East, the Caribbean, Asia, the Mediterranean, Africa, and Australia serving approximately 1.7 million residential and commercial customers.


THE MANY FACES OF ORKIN

Our Orkin family is made up of many races, genders, cultures and beliefs. We pride ourselves on our diversity since it brings more experience and knowledge to our team. Our GOAL is to be the NATION’S BEST SERVICE COMPANY. We will accomplish this goal by delivering the finest quality services and values to our customers, while being environmentally responsible. This will provide opportunities and security for our employees.

Women at Orkin

We’re proud of our female workforce and their commitment to excellence. We offer women the same opportunities available to any other employee, and we make sure the Orkin workplace is rich in personal fulfillment and career advancement. Some might consider the pest management industry a nontraditional job for female employees, but we feel differently -- we welcome, respect and value women in our workforce. It’s our experience that women make a unique contribution to the pest control industry, and every woman who wears an Orkin uniform becomes a vital member of our team.


Recent Graduates

For those preparing to exit school, Orkin provides a great place to lay the building blocks of success. On top of our outstanding pay and benefits, we provide something more valuable -- the ability to continue to ascend as a person and professional, and the tools, resources and knowledge to do so. At Orkin, a commitment to your future isn't just talk. It's what we do.

Benefits

A diverse family needs options because every family member is unique. That’s why we provide our employees with a choice of comprehensive benefits plans that allow them to choose the plan that works best for them. When you join the Orkin® family, you’ll quickly learn that we take care of our own — including preventive care and the opportunity for long-term financial security.

“If there’s a company to invest a long-term career with, Orkin is one of the best. It’s stable, proven and the culture is above and beyond what is commonly found at most companies. With hard work, anything is possible.”
— Thomas F., Branch Manager

    I worked at Orkin full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Excellent training, great base pay with monthly bonus opportunity. Commercial business retention 98% with many add-on opportunities, due to their vast array of services and products.

    Cons

    It would be nice to be able to tape into some of the 98% retention, by allowing some reoccurring revenue.

    Advice to Management

    Your doing a great JOB! By far the best job i have ever had!! Promote stock purchase in 401K, if you can?
