Orkin Commits to Hire 1,000 Veterans over the Next Five Years

Atlanta-based pest control leader Orkin today announced its goal to hire 1,000 military veterans over the next five years. This commitment is part of the White House and First Lady’s Joining Forces initiative, which ensures veterans and military families have the opportunities, resources and recognition they have earned through serving the country.

Orkin has a similar culture of discipline, professionalism, dedication and family as the military. The attitude and character displayed by the people who serve our country translates well to all aspects of Orkin.

“We have many great success stories of military veterans having great careers at Orkin,” said Henry Anthony, Rollins vice president of human resources. “I am convinced we have the values, the commitment to training and development and a stable financial bearing to attract our returning heroes to our company.”

“We are excited that Orkin has answered Joining Forces’ call to companies to hire our military veterans,” said Rich Morales, executive director of Joining Forces. “Companies like Orkin send a strong message that they are ready to hire our troops when they complete their military service.”

Orkin has a special webpage that shows how military training can help lead to a successful career with Orkin. It includes open positions for jobs throughout the company.
