ATLANTA  – As summer winds down and kids go back to school, Atlanta-based Arrow Exterminators is pleased to announce another year of educating the next generation on the value of professional pest control as well as employment opportunities, through its internship program. With a wide variety of backgrounds, the company’s interns worked across a number of business departments including human resources, marketing, training, customer care, sales and more. Opportunities abound in the pest control 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, senior vice president, Professional Development and Human Resources, Arrow.  “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.”

 “There is nothing like immersing yourself into the field that you enjoy,” said Morgan Bullock, intern at Arrow Exterminators. “Working with Arrow Exterminators marketing team I’ve learned more and developed a better understanding of what goes into marketing, public relations, and advertising than any college course has taught me. Surrounding myself with the professionals at Arrow has helped me to realize that a successful business doesn’t consist of all work and no play. Thankfully I’ve been able to work hard and have fun as well. I had always thought working in business would be stressful and stiff. Working with Arrow has completely changed my mind. The company is filled with creativity, encouragement, success, fun and most importantly, service.”

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.”
