ROUTE/SERVICE TECHNICIAN

Come Work With Us, Not For Us

Stop Working At A Job That You Hate. Work With Friends In An Environment That Wants To Give You A Lot Of Money And A Life-Long Career

We Don’t Want To Be A Pit Stop In Your Career – We Want To Be The Last Job You’ll Ever Have (Because You Can’t Imagine Working Anywhere Else)

 

Every Day Is Amazing

You show up early for your shift because you can’t wait to hang out with the other members of your team. (You’d NEVER do this at your old job but this is a tight-knit group and you love hanging out with them). You work hard because everyone else on your team works hard too. You push yourself today, and every day, because you know that growing in your own position ensures a career for life… and there’s a ton of prizes to be won. At the end of the day, you wrap up the last few tasks and hang out with your friends for a few minutes again before heading home. Or maybe some of you hang out in off-work hours. As you drive home, you reflect that this place is unlike any other job you’ve had before, and you can’t wait to get back to this team again tomorrow. Does this sound like a place you’d like to spend your day? If you’re a clock-puncher who wants to do as little as possible then please stop reading this right now. This is not for you. But…

  • If you work at a job you can barely tolerate…
  • If you work at a job that doesn’t respect you…
  • If you work at a job that fills you with dread the night before
  • And if you want to wake up in the morning because you CAN’T WAIT to get to work to see your friends and to push yourself to be more successful, and even to make a lot of money

Then we want to talk to you. We’re looking for team members who are starving to push themselves beyond their personal limits, to earn money and recognition they deserve, and to have an amazing life-long career in an environment where you work with friends every day.  

What’s So Different Here?

Our target is simple: to become THE place that every hungry superstar WANTS to work where they can and will achieve “rock legend” status. Here are just a few of the reasons that our team members LOVE working here…

  • Make more money: we pay more than most
  • Paid training
  • Paid holidays (1 week to start and it grows from there)
  • Paid Wellness Days
  • Amazing 401(k)
  • Profit-Sharing Program
  • Benefits, including Aflac
  • Paid uniforms
  • A clearly laid out path to build the life-long career you want to build (including paid education and tons of opportunities to advance)

We have built the strongest team and culture you’ve ever seen, where team members are deeply motivated; we care about you and your hobbies and your family and your free time and make sure that can have that balance in your life to enjoy it all; we’re constantly expanding so we’ve created some amazing opportunities for you. We want to help you dream big in your life and career… and we want to help you achieve it all.

Who Are We? We’re Prompt Action Pest Control. We started nearly 33 years ago – just one guy and a truck doing Bat Control work. Over the years we built, expanded, and grew. Today we are market leaders who are DOMINATING the Western, Northern, and Central Wisconsin market with Every type of Pest Control Services. We’ve got over 13 staff, 9 trucks on the road, and over 20,000 happy customers served. And we help others, too – we’re strong supporters of the Wounded Warrior program, and our local churches.   ... and it feels like we’re only getting started. We recently expanded further into a larger building, we’re adding more team members, and you should see the plan we have for growth beyond this. (There’s a reason we’ve never had a down year, never laid anyone off, and never had to tighten our belt).

 

Are You A Fit?

 Never look for a job again because we’re not a pit stop in your career – we’re the last place you’ll ever work!  If you’re a hard-working professional with an inner drive to improve yourself and help others then you might be a fit for us… Along with the job-specific qualifications (below) here are the qualities we’re looking for in our perfect candidate:

  • You work hard
  • You love working with a team
  • You’re tech savvy – you can diagnose a problem and make recommendations to fix it
  • You love to serve others
  • You love to challenge yourself and you want to learn, and even be cross-trained
  • You understand the importance of serving others (your team members and our customers)
  • You understand and are willing to follow our core values:
    • Safety First For Our Family and Theirs – Think Twice, Act Once
    • Delivering WOW Through Service – Exceeding Every Customer’s Expectations
    • Demonstrate Highest Level of Integrity – Doing the Right Thing Even When No One is Watching
    • Great Place to Work – All for One and One for All

JOB DESCRIPTION

Service Technician

Summary

Today is awesome! You showed up for work, loaded up the truck, and checked the PestRoutes App for your service schedule for the day. You’ve got the education to understand what’s wrong… now it’s time to roll up your sleeves and put it in action. You drive to the customer’s house and introduce yourself to the homeowner. You work tirelessly and confidently to solve the challenges the homeowner is experiencing. You wrap up the first project of the day and get ready to move on to the next house. You’re already looking forward to tomorrow!

Job Duties:

Work with the team: You stay in contact with the office and Technician Manager to make sure the work orders are completed efficiently – everyone pitches in because it’s ultimately about serving the customer.

Develop your expertise: You use industry-leading IPM practices and pesticide application protocols, knowing that you’re ultimately helping people live comfortable and safer lives. Over time, you gain a growing expertise at diagnosing problems and understanding how to eliminate or prevent them. You respond to emergencies with safety as your top priority.

Become a trusted professional: You keep your tools neat, clean, and well-maintained so they’re handy and ready for use and safe. You’ll learn to prepare written materials (e.g. scope of work, work orders, bids, equipment inventory, etc.) because you know that this keeps everyone informed – from the customer, to the technician, to the team back at the office. You look forward to the day when you’re a trusted industry expert with your own technicians to train.

Job Requirements:

You love to learn: You have a high school diploma or equivalent. You don’t need experience to apply here but experience is preferred. Most importantly, you have a drive to learn more because you know that it serves everyone – from the customer to the team to yourself. You eagerly complete your training and licensing requirements and ask, “What’s next?” You’re even willing to be cross-trained in other tasks.

You’re a tech-savvy people-person: You love the puzzle and adventure of understanding and completing the technical challenges you’re posed with every day. At the same time, you’re comfortable talking to a homeowner and professionally educating them on what their options are.

You’re ready to work: You have a driver’s license, a ready-to-work attitude, and no problem handling the physical demands of the job – such as kneeling and crawling or balancing on a ladder. You’re capable of working in enclosed spaces or doing a significant amount of crawling and standing. (Hey, if this is a surprise to you then you probably shouldn’t be a pest control technician).

You’re a professional: You are clean, neat, and well-groomed in appearance and you understand that safety is paramount. You won’t work anywhere that is unsafe but you know safety is a two-way street, so you won’t do anything unsafe either.
