Wondering what a typical day looks like for our Pest Control Service Technicians?
Morning You will have your own company vehicle at home, therefore, in your company uniform, you’ll either travel to your first customer of the day or head to the depot to load your van with stock for your day's work.
On the road Your day will be spent visiting a number of different customers. No two days will be the same due to the variety of industries you will service. You will service your customers’ sites by; Inspecting customer premises for signs of pests and carrying out measures as required to eliminate pests Clean and remove evidence of pest behavior Advise customers on maintenance and hygiene of their premises Complete accurate Service Reports after every visit Whilst you don’t need to be an athlete, you will work up a sweat servicing multiple sites, so you would need to be physically fit. You will be responsible for your own health and safety - this means it’s your responsibility to ensure your vehicle is safe at all times and that you take care on the road.
End of day Unless you need to re-stock, time to go home and relax and unwind. At the depot, is the best time for you to debrief with your manager and discuss how your day has gone.
