[a man speaking]
00:00:00.320 –> 00:00:03.120
I’ve been with ABC a
little over seven years.

2
00:00:03.320 –> 00:00:05.720
I love working at ABC because they just

3
00:00:05.720 –> 00:00:08.000
bring you in and make you feel
like a part of the family.

4
00:00:08.160 –> 00:00:09.560
You’re not just an employee,

5
00:00:09.760 –> 00:00:14.040
that you’re one of the family and they’re
going to take care of you and they impart

6
00:00:14.080 –> 00:00:17.280
that on you so that you take care
of your customers as well.

7
00:00:17.480 –> 00:00:20.800
So you look at them as not
customers, but is also a part of the family.

8
00:00:21.000 –> 00:00:24.560
ABC has definitely brought out some skill
sets in me that

9
00:00:24.760 –> 00:00:28.880
I didn’t know about in the beginning. I
was nervous about the communication with

10
00:00:29.080 –> 00:00:33.920
customers, but it’s actually one of my
favorite things, and it’s really brought

11
00:00:34.120 –> 00:00:37.080
that out in so many other
fashions other than work.

12
00:00:37.280 –> 00:00:39.160
You know, outside, personal life.

13
00:00:39.360 –> 00:00:42.840
ABC has impacted my personal
life in tremendous ways.

14
00:00:43.040 –> 00:00:45.720
It’s allowed me to provide for my family.

15
00:00:45.920 –> 00:00:49.480
We’ve been able to buy a home over
these times that I’ve been here.

16
00:00:49.680 –> 00:00:54.840
My family went from just my wife and I
and our young child when I started to

17
00:00:55.040 –> 00:00:57.520
now we have three and one on the way.

18
00:00:57.720 –> 00:01:01.760
So what brought me to ABC is I was working
in the culinary field before. I was, you

19
00:01:01.960 –> 00:01:06.240
know, in the kitchen doing my
normal thing. In comes the ABC guy,

20
00:01:06.440 –> 00:01:08.240
and I just started asking him some

21
00:01:08.440 –> 00:01:11.640
questions, pay, benefits,
and things like that.

22
00:01:11.640 –> 00:01:12.960
And it really impressed me.

23
00:01:13.160 –> 00:01:17.280
And I said, “Well, I’ve never had
any experience in pest control.”

24
00:01:17.480 –> 00:01:19.480
And he said they prefer that. They

25
00:01:19.680 –> 00:01:22.120
like to train people
the right way to do it.

26
00:01:22.320 –> 00:01:28.480
So I put in the application and
I went for a few interviews, felt the

27
00:01:28.680 –> 00:01:32.640
warmth of the interviews,
started out as a technician, and I’ve been

28
00:01:32.840 –> 00:01:37.880
able to work my way up into regional
director over about 10 guys underneath.

29
00:01:38.080 –> 00:01:40.160
Another great thing about working at ABC

30
00:01:40.360 –> 00:01:45.520
is the recognition. They notice you
when you are doing the right thing.

31
00:01:45.720 –> 00:01:48.760
One of our biggest thing is integrity.

32
00:01:48.960 –> 00:01:53.160
And that’s doing what, the right
thing when nobody’s looking.

33
00:01:53.360 –> 00:01:55.360
So not only will they, you know, give you

34
00:01:55.560 –> 00:01:58.880
a good attaboy, pat on the back,
they’ll send out an email.

35
00:01:59.040 –> 00:02:00.840
Not only do they reply to the email,

36
00:02:00.840 –> 00:02:03.440
they’ll come up in person, shake your
hand and give you a pat on the back.

37
00:02:03.640 –> 00:02:04.680
Say, “Good job.”

38
00:02:04.880 –> 00:02:10.040
So some of the things I love about working
at ABC is the wonderful health plan, a

39
00:02:10.240 –> 00:02:13.800
dental plan and vision plan that we
have definitely taking advantage of.

40
00:02:13.960 –> 00:02:16.560
We have paid vacation and
there’s a matching 401K.

41
00:02:16.760 –> 00:02:21.520
We have a wonderful profit share program
that also makes it the family feel when

42
00:02:21.720 –> 00:02:26.280
everybody’s pushing and getting
everything done and and profiting,

43
00:02:26.480 –> 00:02:28.160
we all benefit from that.

44
00:02:28.360 –> 00:02:31.040
So those are just some many things
that I love about working at ABC.
