Job Description

Aptive offers leading-edge environmentally responsible pest control services and has been dubbed "The Google of the pest control industry." Aptive founders sold their first company in 2011 for $30 million, 2nd in 2016 for $135 Million, and formed Aptive in 2016. In only 3 years, Aptive is the fastest growing service company and pest control company in the nation. It is the youngest company on the “2019 Top 100 Companies to Work For”--three spots behind Apple and just ahead of Goldman Sachs. Aptive was the nation’s 7th largest pest control company in 2018, and adding more accounts in 2018 than the next 5 companies combined, it is on track to the be the 4th largest pest company in 2019. Aptive has an incredible culture for students to be a part of, learn from, and grow in. Aptive helps people succeed as professionals, entrepreneurs, and leaders.

Perfect for college students and those who can relocate to one of our 40 branches across the nation! This summer your team will work out of our Columbus, OH branch! Furnished apartments provided!


Experience a new city for the summer while you work and earn money for the year! Our sales representatives work seasonally from May 1st to August 31st. For many team members, this is a long-term career with equity opportunity in a multimillion dollar company. Plus, a large percentage of our representatives earn enough in one summer to satisfy their yearly income.


Amazing opportunity for those who value unlimited earning potential, personal growth, awesome company culture and being able to earn bonuses and incentives for working harder!


Looking for people who desire to grow and push through challenges. This job will challenge you in ways that most jobs won’t, but it brings great reward for those that are willing to push themselves beyond what they think is possible.

Additionally, the company is hugely service-oriented. We finance and volunteer for an in-house charity that builds schools in South America, and we raised nearly $250,000 in 2018 for reducing mosquito-spread Malaria in Africa as a partner with the United Nations' Nothing but Nets initiative.


Aptive is looking for someone who:

• Embraces challenges and knows no boundaries. Go the extra mile in all that you do.

• Passion for people and outstanding customer service skills

• Demonstrated persuasion and negotiation skills

• Goal-oriented with a focus on achieving sales success

• A dreamer and a doer who is optimistic about possibilities, passionate about seeing your vision come to life, and takes thoughtful risks to get there.

• Lives by a moral compass of fairness and integrity, delivers on promises...every time.


As a first year rep, you will utilize your strengths and our company training to:

• Sell door-to-door pest control services to prospective customers

• Work a minimum of 40 hours a week and willing to work during holidays

• Provide excellent customer service to client base and handle objections effectively

• Master sales techniques and improve communication skills, leadership qualities, and time management


How Aptive compensates your work:

• Sales positions have a tiered commission structure.

• Average entry level representatives average $14,000 - $18,000 in a summer (12 weeks), while top entry level representatives earn upwards of $25,000+ in a summer (12 weeks).

• Free rent for qualified candidates who meet a specific sales target.

• All-inclusive company trips to exotic places outside the country. Last October we went to Greece!

• Performance based promotion and ability to earn partner status in the fastest growing pest control company.

• Learn valuable skills transferable to any industry. You'll gain the ability to easily build rapport and establish trust, master verbal, non-verbal, and para-verbal communication skills, learn the craft of negotiating, overcoming objects and closing sales.

• While the old adage "work hard, play hard" is a bit cliché, we understand the need for balance. We consistently have personal and team competitions with prizes like cash, dinner parties, Nike gift cards, Apple products, Sonos speakers, yacht parties, motorcycles and all expenses paid international vacations!

• Upward mobility and career opportunities available in management and all departments.
