Have you ever worked harder than someone else but didn’t get paid for it?
We’d LOVE to hear from you.
My name is Richard Smith, I am the owner of Gecko Pest Control. I manage my team based off two principals. First ?EVERYONE HAS TO WIN? . This means customers have to get a great service, employees have to be compensated well, and the company has to make a profit. ?EVERYONE HAS TO WIN?. Second is the fairness principal. I believe that people that work harder should be paid More. I make sure everyone gets paid well, but those that work extra hard get more. Its FAIR to everyone that way.

2nd Stage Techs will need to take and pass an additional test. The 1st stage test is shorter and focuses on safety. The second stage test will cover more aspects of the industry. Topics such as pest ID, understanding habitat. Laws associated with Pest Control. On the job training plus study material will help. In addition one on one technical training is provided.
