Rave Employee Resignation Review by Marco A. Ramos Employment with Hearts Pest Management and how it helped his career

David Cole - Hearts Pest Management Field Representative and Senior Supervisor

David Cole – Hearts Pest Management Field Representative and Supervisor

David Cole came to Hearts Pest Management with prior experience as a pest control business owner of over 25 years experience in the industry.

Dave currently serves as a supervisor, landscape, and commercial Pest Control Consultant for Hearts. He is the expert in bed bug control, mite control, scorpions, rodents, and organic applications for both residential and commercial properties.

In Dave’s own words, “After owning my own company in a different state, I can say I’ve found my home here. Hearts is a progressive thinking company and its employees are dedicated to the highest standards, both with our customers and with each other. I could not ask for a better work environment or a better employer.” – Dave Cole

Grateful Employees and a Great Boss!

Hearts Pest Management employees sign a thank you card to Gerry to show their gratitude and how much they love working for him! Thanks Gerry for being #1 Boss!

Donna Walker began working for Hearts in November of 2012. She writes most of the company blogs providing the public with information on wildlife, nature, and the many different kinds of insects, including what type of organic produce to buy.

Donna is a trail guide and naturalist; she volunteers her time on weekends leading nature walks for both Mission Trails and the Elfin Forest.

“Since I started working for Hearts, I have been able to express my passion for writing, nature, art and photography. I’ve also created illustrations for the blog and various pages on our website.”

Donna Walker – Website Content Writer/Blogger and Customer Service Representative

I enjoy educating customers on various insects and organic methods to keep them from becoming pests. My philosophy is that insects and other wildlife do not become pests until they make their way indoors and start setting up home.

Gerry is wonderful person to work for; he encourages his employees to continue their education and helps each one realize their dreams. And, through our educational program, Gerry paid for an online Photoshop class and software of which I’ve been able to utilize for our website. This is my dream job! Thanks Gerry!” – Donna

Summary Job Descriptions

For more detailed job descriptions check out our full job descriptions page. Teamwork – All positions within the company require teamwork. Without teamwork, the team as a whole and the individual on the team fail.

Teamwork requires that no matter what position you hold within the company, that you strive to do your best at your assigned task and that you are willing to chip in and assist with any other task assigned, within your ability and training, to keep teamwork in forward momentum and to collectively achieve high productivity standards.

This involves peer-to-peer teamwork, supervisor-supervisee teamwork, cross-team teamwork and cross-function teamwork. Our expectation is that there will be times when teamwork will require work that may be outside the primary area of responsibility, so long as it has been accompanied by orientation and/or training for that task.

A Happy Employee

Thank’s Boss!

Thank you note to Gerry, owner of Hearts Pest Management from a happy employee!
