Lots to learn, gives a great understanding the importance of Pest managent
They teach you a lot when it comes to understanding how pest issues arise and why in varying settings ranging from food plants, industrial settings,grocery stores, warehouses and homes. What you also learn is the importance of understanding the reasons why pests are there for a reason and how to ensure they do not come back whether it is structural modification, cutting trees back and a lot of common sense. Good benefits and wages, but you have to work for it and be prepared to see and deal with things that you may find not so nice.
Pros
Good mix of wage/commission/ good benefits
Cons
To much pressure from call centers

No work/life/balance. High expectations/Low pay
Extermination is unfortunately, a mostly unrewarding career. Very physical, technical, and professional job that few people respect the difficulty of. Also a very dangerous and uncomfortable job considering the chemicals you use and their legal implications. Do not forget you are dealing with mice, wasps, ants, rats, cockroaches and more. Infestations and grumpy customers as well. You are a jack of all trades; Sales meetings, applying pesticides, light construction work, you do it all. While you are offered significant independence, it often feels like you are running the entire company remotely. You are frequently expected to work long or split days on short notice to accommodate customers' schedules. The random nature of this work can take a serious toll on personal life. Management are great people, but most are just waiting to retire and pass on problems. Additionally you are charged $120/month for the truck and there is no yard to park it. Total waste of money because no one wants/needs a 2 seat light truck with pest control decals all over it. Mine didn't even have power mirrors or winter tires. Pay is also not competitive. Base pay is $600/week + commission to start. Raises were below rate of inflation, which meant I would virtually never reach max wage. As for commission, this is highly dependent on the types of customers you are assigned and how far away they are. Commission can change drastically with route reorganization like mine did. I saw annual income drop by nearly 20% when this happened. I was rarely able to make more than $500/month in commission on average. - more...
Pros
Management and office staff are genuinely good people
Cons
Too many to list
