We look for people who fit with our company values and culture. Our company has a long service tenure and we want people to build a successful career with us. Among the many opportunities, these are some of the positions most commonly available:
No two days are ever the same for our Service Specialists! Our Specialists & Installers are our main customer contacts and directly build customer relationships.

For pest control, peak season is the summer; and for interior landscaping, holiday decorating installation and removal, winter is the peak season.
Pest Control Specialists
You will be part of a large team, but for the majority of the time, you will be working independently to provide pest management services to our clients at residential and commercial locations. Many of the visits you will carry out are planned or routine calls on your route, but sometimes a customer could have an emergency, for which rapid response is required. Additional opportunities are available to learn about our lines of business—bed bug, termite, bioremediation (drain line services), bird management, fumigation and vegetation management. Peak season for pest control is generally May-September.
Plant Care Specialists and Installers
You will be involved in improving the quality of experience for people working in offices, hotels and shopping centers by enriching the environment. You will be a part of a team, but will work independently a majority of your day-to-day time.
Installers specialize in delivery of plant materials and blooming arrangements, making sure they are securely planted and placed according to the designer's plan. Plant Care Specialists visit their regular customers, often on a weekly basis, to care for their plants and containers, including cleaning replica plants occasionally! They may also specialize in green wall care or the Premium Scenting mechanisms and programming. People in these positions usually have daily routes and get to know their regular customers. Of course, during holiday decor season (October-January), everyone pitches in (often overnight) to create stunning displays to delight customers and their visitors.
Operational Excellence and Food Safety Specialists
You will conduct assessments for customers, which measure conformity to established regulatory, industry, and proprietary brand standards for clients.
Specialists make sure our hotel, restaurant, and grocery clients meet their own brand and industry standards, to deliver quality food and friendly service to their customers. These Specialists will observe food preparation and cooking to ensure food safety, health, and sanitation practices.
Using what they observe, Specialist partner with customers to address root causes of assessment discrepancies and develop corrective action plans. They help teach customers how to make their workplace a safer and healthier environment.

What to expect
You will be constantly busy answering incoming telephone calls and emails to satisfy customers' needs. While talking to customers, you will make sure records are accurate and you can help identify and solve customer issues while talking to each customer. At times, these calls are from distressed customers, so you will need to use your natural empathy and compassion. Even on a bad day, you will remain courteous and knowledgeable, and find ways to diffuse potentially emotional situations, in order to break the customer's issue down into calm, actionable tasks. Then you will start the ball rolling to correct issues and communicate with the field.
Our customer service teams across the world are expected to be up-to-date with all of our latest products and services. During peak seasons, we may require Customer Service Representatives to work on weekends, public holidays, and overtime.
