    Benefits

    Cons

    You're dealing with chemicals
    You're dealing with dead rodents, and insect, so it can get dirty
    Some time gotta work nights, and weekends.

    Advice to Management

    Try not to be so corporate, or micromanage everything if employers are already working good.

    Easy Interview

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Orkin (Long Beach, CA).

    First interview, describe yourself. Then Ride-along with a seasoned inspector, if you like what you see you will have a second interview. This is to talk a little more about you and the sales job opportunity.
