Overall a good company to work for. If youre not a salesperson you need not apply
route Manager (Former Employee) – Ontario – 29 March 2017
I worked for Abell for a long time. It was good in the beginning, very caring and family like. However it became much more cold and corporate more recently. Sales pressure is always present. the workers are a great bunch of people.

Office Assistant (Former Employee) – Etobicoke, ON – 10 June 2017
I went to work there twice, once over Christmas break and another time over march break. I helped out in the office doing tasks such as filing, organizing papers, photocopying cheques and emailing them to the recipients. I learned how filing cabinets are organized, and how to use the photocopying machine that automatically sends emails. avoiding paper cuts was the hardest part of the job and the most enjoyable was finishing a big stack of paperwork. the workplace culture is focused and productive.
Pest Control Technician (Current Employee) – Vancouver, BC – 22 January 2017
Great job but the managers don't care about the employees. Treat long term employees with no respect and only care about themselves. Lazy managers as well. Want everything but never give anything. They have lost a lot of great employees due to their attitudes. Would be the best company in Canada if they got rid of the regional manager as well as some branch managers. At least in BC.
I didn't think I'd like Pest Control as much as I do. The company is great, gives back to it's employees a lot and it feels like a family. Some longer hours, some sales pressure, but overall fair for what they're paying us.
