Human Capital Planning

Before we start the pest control hiring process, evaluate whether your business has the bandwidth for a new hire looking to be skilled in how to be a pest control technician or if we need someone with many years of prior experience who can jump right in.

A pest control technician must have quality are:

  • Passionate about assisting society
  • Able to bodily move around indoor and outdoor spaces
  • Contented around rodents and insects
  • Can safely evaluate where to spray the proper amount and kind of pesticide
  • Can anticipate infestations and endorse best practices to customers

When looking through pest control resumes, we see if the applicant has previous experience in the field and has a license from the relevant department. Related education and/or customer service experience are additional pest control hiring. A valid driver’s license, a clean criminal record, and no gaps in employment show reliability. References from earlier employers can prove the potential employee’s work ethic, communication style, and history of customer satisfaction.


Pre-Screen Candidates

When we conduct phone screening, our overall aim should just be to ask about their work and experience in the industry. Screening questions are like:

  • “What kind of experience do you have?”
  • “Are you licensed to work in pest control?”
  • “What jobs have you done in the past?”
  • “Why do you think you’re a good fit for pest control?”
  • “What would you bring to our pest control business?”

If they perform satisfactorily in a phone interview, then we schedule an in-person interview.

Conduct an In-person, Onsite Interview

To discover probable inconsistencies, it’s ok to ask some of your original pre-screen questions. With that said, you should have even more in-depth questions to ask them in person. Questions for candidate in-person:

  • “Why do you want to leave your current job?”
  • “What types of chemicals (or gear) have you worked with and for how long?”
  • “What would you bring to our business?”
  • “Did you ever have a situation where a customer was wrong or upset you – how did you handle it?”
  • “What makes you different from the other people applying for this job?”
  • “Could you give some references?” like contacts of managers or supervisors.

We look for whether the candidates are punctual for the interview, the person must have a good professional and personal attitude. As we can sense their responsible behaviour.

Knowledge Transfer & Onboarding

Onboarding an employee into the industry can be time-consuming, expensive and sometimes inconsistent. A good onboarding process can drive the competence of a pest control company and safeguards a technician who knows how to stay safe in the field. It will also increase their knowledge-based learning with practical skills developed in the field.

Usually, there are sets the standard for the level of knowledge and practical experience recruits need to gain on their journey to becoming a qualified pest professional. A series of knowledge transfer and practical valuations are included as part of the agenda to ensure that the learner accomplishes competency in the knowledge, skills and behaviours required of a pest professional.

Performance Management

It is essential that we continually monitor and evaluate the performance of all the employees especially those newly hired. To undertake this, we carry out many checks. These checks include checks by supervisors, quality assurance reviews, site official visits and active ground management by our management team. All these checks ensure that excellent service is delivered.
The whole team takes an energetic approach to measure performance and understands that it is important that we connect effectively with our clients. Carefully planned and maintained procedures together with detailed documents ensure that there is no room for complacency.


Training your workforce in proper pest management practices is crucial to realizing success. Employees need to understand the approaches outlined in your pest management plan and their detailed roles. They should also understand why a plan is important, and the risks that pests pose.

During the training, your employees will learn about detailed pests that pose a problem in business. During the training, mention each pest that is a concern. Include information on their appearance, the threat they pose, and signs of an infestation.

Compensation & Benefits

Great pest control employees are hard to come by, so it’s not surprising that your competitors would try to steal yours. Every time you lose one of your star employees to a competitor, you’re not just losing a prized employee but also your desired skillset and experience.

  • Build a reputation for producing quality work.
  • Reward your team’s devotion with annual pay raises and bonuses.
  • Give them perks.
  • Cultivate a healthy company culture.
  • Give your technicians a career development opportunity.

Skill Gap Analysis

A skill GAP analysis helps to bridge the gap between the current skill and knowledge and the future state of your business that can be achieved. In GAP analysis, the goal is to identify the current situation and acknowledge what new behaviour you want to see. Fundamentally, what is your current state, and what outcomes do you want to see in a specified timeframe? In core, this analysis will help “close the gap” between one state into another. The change doesn’t need to be overly thorough. But it should move your business down a path of success.
