Adam’s Is Hiring Pest Control Technicians
Supported, Not Micromanaged…
These days, too many managers are micromanagers. They demand things be done exactly their way, They don’t have your back, and they only seem to catch you when you make a mistake.
As an Adam’s Technician, our staff is set up to support you, not impede you. It’s that simple. Your support staff, including an agent, manager, and entomologist, handle aspects like scheduling, customer communications, and fielding your questions. This allows you to be your most effective. There’s no overbearing manager breathing down your neck.
Working as an Adam’s technician is an independent job built on trust that goes both ways!
A Career Where You’re In Charge
As an Adam’s technician you will start and end your day at home in a company-provided vehicle. Pest control is a job where you do services along your own route so you will be using our software, Blu Star, to complete stops that our office staff schedules for you.
In terms of the actual pest control work, being a pest control technician is like being a detective. You utilize the customer’s pest descriptions, you find signs of pests, and use your knowledge of pest behavior to identify and solve pest problems. At Adam’s you get to be creative and you’re empowered to use your best judgment in solving pest problems.
At the end of the day, customers will really appreciate the service you provide because you are resolving a stressful situation for them. Their appreciation makes them a joy to be around.
Adam’s doesn’t require any prior experience or schooling to become a technician. We provide all of the (paid) training you need to be successful in the field. Additionally, on day two of employment, new technicians go on a ridealong with an experienced technician so they can make sure the job is a good fit for them.
While other pest control companies rush technicians into the field so the company can quickly make money, Adam’s approach is to set you up for long-term success. We provide classroom training with our PhD Entomologist and field training with our ACE-certified Field Director and our Purdue-certified Training Technicians.
Adam’s technicians work a full Mon-Fri 40-hour work week. During busier times, technicians may be asked to work a half-day on Saturday up to 2 times a month.
A great benefit of technician scheduling is the flexibility. Adam’s flexible scheduling allows you to free up time for what’s important without having to sacrifice PTO.
Additionally, if you want to cut back on hours during the winter, that is also an available option.
At Adam’s you work in a company-provided vehicle you keep at home. You start and end your day where you live, working in communities that are close by. Compare that to working somewhere with a 30 minute commute in your personal vehicle. You would save 5 hours of gas and wear and tear every single week you work at Adam’s. Depending on your vehicle/gas, that’s an extra $25-$50+ that stays in your pocket every week!
