As the season ramps up and the need for additional pest management professionals grows, it's tempting to speed through the hiring process. However quick hires can lead to long-term challenges. To ensure you’re adding value to your team, focus on these key questions during your interviews: 

Adaptability Under Fire: "Can you describe a time when you had to adapt to a significant change at work? How did you handle it?" 

This question reveals a candidate’s resilience and flexibility, qualities essential for the unpredictable busy season. 

Passion for Pest Control: "What excites you about working in pest management, and how do you stay motivated during high-demand periods?" 

A candidate’s answer will highlight their intrinsic motivation and commitment to the field, indicating whether they’ll thrive in the fast-paced environment. 

Commitment to Standards: "In a scenario where time is limited, how would you ensure that the quality of work meets your company standards?" 

This will tell you if a candidate’s work ethic aligns with your company’s dedication to excellence, even when under pressure. 

By asking these three questions, you're not just filling a vacancy; you're strategically selecting a professional who will contribute to your team's success and resilience during the busy season and beyond.
