I been wanting to work in pest control for years. I keep going in circles. I fill out countless apps with no good news. Right now im stuck being a truck driver and its making things more difficult.

What do I need to do to get things rolling in the right direction?

My address on my license is in Jackson, TN. I basically live in my truck, I drive all over the country though. Was going to try and buy a house near where I could get a job. Heard Louisiana and Florida where probably my best bets.

Im running circles though getting no answers from applications, no idea why. I really want this, been wanting it a long time. I think me being an over the road driver at the moment is making it much harder.

Hey Truck Driver;
Are you meeting the people face to face when you are applying? As you probably know this is a people business. Your first impression goes a long way toward getting a pest control career started. If the company can see that you are basically the kind of person that they like, you stand a better chance.

I encourage you to choose our industry. You have already shown the ability to work without constant supervision, find your way anywhere, solve any problem; and work a job while looking for your chosen career. You made a smart move coming to this website so can learn some of the methods and products. Stay upbeat, you'll make it.
