Job Description:

For more than 85 years, Terminix has built a reputation as one of the nation's leading providers of termite and pest control services, safeguarding over 3 million homes and businesses against all types of pests in 47 states and 14 countries.

What is this role about?

Our Termite Control Technicians serve in a key front-line role and are the very heart of what we do. It's all about providing outstanding service delivery of Terminix products to valued customers.

What does a "Day-in-the-Life" look like?

Equipped with a company vehicle and excellent industry training, our Termite Techs are out in the neighborhoods Terminix serves visiting residential customers and performing requested termite treatments. Here are a few specifics of what you would be doing each day:

  • Verifying that job specifications are appropriate for each work order

  • Preparing the job site for treatment

  • Applying anti-terminate treatments to structures according to schedule, safety procedures and label instructions.

  • Interacting with customers and explaining services provided

  • Completing production forms documenting services provided

What do I need to be successful?

  • Being a high school graduate/having a GED and a valid driver's license are both requirements

  • Prior industry experience is great, but not required. The following are much more important

  • You are personable and enjoy interacting with customers

  • You are self-motivated and have a strong work ethic

  • You can effectively present information to customers one-on-one and in small groups

  • You are detailed oriented and understand the importance of safety

  • You have a good aptitude for basic math-- necessary for doing calculations related to service

  • Of course, given our business, you should be comfortable working outside and in confined spaces like crawl spaces and attics

  • For safety reasons (rebreathers have be able to seal to your face) our Termite Techs aren't able to have facial hair

Why should I choose Terminix?

In addition to being part of an iconic brand with a rich 85 year history, here are some other highlights of what we offer members of the Terminix Team.

  • Comprehensive training and licensure, all paid by the company

  • Highly competitive compensation earning potential of $30,000-50,000 in first year.

  • Company provided vehicle (that you can take home with you at night) and gas card

  • Opportunities for advancement and career growth including paths into management level roles

  • Medical, dental and vision coverage + discounts on ServiceMaster brands

  • Short/long-term Disability and Life Insurance

  • Paid time off
