A Typical Day In The Life
Every day is different, but a typical day goes something like this: You get up early – not because there’s a clock to punch (there’s not!) – but because you’re the kind of person who’s eager to get started.
During the course of the day, you service several clients – homes, restaurants, businesses, schools, hospitals, etc. – a whole variety of places. The size of your accounts will range from the small to the very large, such as food processing plants, warehouses, or apartment complexes. At each account, you check in with a contact person – the homeowner, business owner, or whoever is designated to deal with contractors; and you discuss any pest concerns they may have. Then you inspect the premises. You look for pests, or for conditions that could allow pests to access to your client’s home or place of business.
If you find pests, you first determine how you will keep them out in the first place and you make recommendations to your client on things they can do to make their premises less suitable for pests. If appropriate, you might use an insecticide, rodenticide, or other pest control material according to label directions. You put safety first, make effectiveness a close second, and value economy closely behind that.
In short, you’ll see people, relate to them in a friendly and professional manner, and solve several different mysteries every day. You’ll provide a high-quality, effective service. You’ll grow your service route by making a prospect call or two and establishing contact with people who aren’t your customers – yet. You’ll document your service calls and communicate with the office.
At the end of the day, you have the satisfaction of being an authentic, respectable service provider who delivers peace of mind to our clients while protecting their health and property.
