ATLANTA  – As summer winds down and kids go back to school, Atlanta based Arrow Exterminators announces another year of educating our next generation on the value of professional pest control as well as employment opportunities, through our internship program. With a wide variety of backgrounds, Arrow's interns worked across a number of business departments including Human Resources, Marketing, Training, Customer Care, Sales and more. Opportunities abound in our industry and these folks are learning it from the inside.

“Hiring, training and retaining the best people is an integral part of our Vision,” said Shay Runion, Chief Human Resources Officer.  “Providing opportunities to learn about our industry and the various career paths that are available is a great way to attract young, talented individuals who will be the future of our company.  Our interns spend two full days learning all about Arrow Exterminators and our unique culture as well as about the industry before they receive their department assignment based on their interests.”

Parker Nayman, incoming sophomore at Flagler College said, “Interning at Arrow Exterminators has been a wonderful opportunity. Learning about the pest control industry while working with the Human Resources team has helped shape and pave a solid path for my future. I will be back next summer.”

Taylor Connelly, now a full time Arrow services professional, said, “I was undecided on what path to take after high school. My internship has taught me that there is so much more to this industry and Arrow than 'just killing bugs.'  This opportunity is the best thing that has ever happened to me and I look forward to coming to work each day!”

Finally, Autumn White, who interned with the marketing team, said, “I have changed my major to marketing after learning about it from the inside of a company.  I will continue my internship through the school year and am so excited to be able to stay on at Arrow.”

Runion added, “Our commitment to training and professional development through Arrow University cannot be understated.  By bringing in these talented individuals at a young age, they get to see what a dynamic industry we all work in and will hopefully choose to begin their careers with us when they are ready.”
