With the warmer weather, you have probably noticed our fleet of trucks out and about in neighborhoods and around town as we treat landscapes and yards against those tiny, blood sucking predators: mosquitoes and ticks! We wanted to take a moment and introduce ourselves to our community.
What’s it like to work for Mosquito Squad? Are you a positive person, who enjoys work and being a part of a team? With the season just ramping up, we still have a few more openings for select customer service technicians. Working at Mosquito Squad of the North Shore has some distinct advantages. First off, we are a family-owned business and we have worked hard to build a diverse team that treats each other like family. We look out for each other; we have fun, and we have a lot in common with each other. Naturally, this creates an ideal work environment.
Do you like to travel? Our trucks cover the entire North Shore and it is a great way to not only see our beautiful community, but also to make it a better place. Our service makes outdoor living more enjoyable because you can actually get out and enjoy your yard. We also protect you, your family, friends, and even your dogs, from harmful diseases carried by infected vectors. Diseases like West Nile Virus, Lyme Disease, Eastern Equine Encephalitis, Heartworms, and more. Putting a barrier between you and those pesky bugs is not just work: it is work that does the community good.
When you are a part of a family-owned business, you are more than just a number — you are treated like a person who is valued and appreciated. Take for example our hands on approach to training our customer service techs, and it pays off in more ways than one. You have to pass a pretty intensive test to become a professional technician. Would you expect to be paid to study? Here at Mosquito Squad of the North Shore Mosquito and Tick Control, you will earn a salary while you are in training, for two reasons. One, we value your time; and two, we want you to be the very best customer service tech the North Shore has ever seen! Not just cheerful, pleasant, dressed in your awesome uniform and ready to work, but excited and glad to be a part our our amazing team.
There is a lot to learn, to become an expert. For Mosquito Squad, it starts with learning everything possible about “the enemies,” Take for instance today and the month of May. What are some key things to be aware of? Well, for us, it would be that the month of May is Lyme Disease awareness month; that Lyme Disease is spread by infected deer ticks (Ixodes Scapularis), and that now is the time to be strategically layout out our specially formulated tick tubes. These ingenious products stop thousands and thousands of young ticks from ever leaving the mouse/rodent hole. Then we have to learn about all the products and how they work, so that we can answer any questions or concerns you may have. We also cover, in depth safety, and all of the applicable Massachusetts laws and regulations. We don’t just throw you a book and send you off in a corner to be self taught. No, we offer one-on-one training, and will pay you as you are learning…not just for two or three days, but for several weeks. And once you pass your test? Congratulations! You just earned your first pay raise! It’s true!
All of us take great pride in representing the face of our company, whether we are on or off duty. Ask us for one of our business cards, and you will see for yourself! Our family values extend to our customers as well. No one else earns consistently top reviews from our clients, like we do. A dramatic part of our business is made up of repeat customers, year after year. We take great honor in that respect that has been given to us: we’ve earned it and we want to keep it! So, if you ever have a complaint, or want to sing our praises, we really do want to hear from you.
