You’re just as comfortable with people as you are pests. You manage your own selling or up-selling to customers while at their home and other company marketing efforts.

You arrive clean-shaven and always cover your shoes to make sure you don’t damage her floors or carpet. You know that just one roach is one to many; so you’ll never minimize her pest concerns, no matter how small.
You stay on top of customer satisfaction by supervising and checking in on crew work and evaluating finished jobs. Customer complaints? They don’t scare you; in fact you see them as an opportunity to make improvements and solidify customer loyalty. You follow up quickly and make sure the customer is taken care of.
