What They Do
Mosquito Joe provides outdoor mosquito treatment for residential and commercial clients. Their team offers responsive customer service as well as on-site technicians to eliminate the harmful pests and make outside fun again. At the workplace they focus on company branding and marketing for franchise development in the industry.
Mosquito Joe engages employees from the week they start and all the way through upper management by having open communication and planning activities in and outside of the office. They encourage advancement within the company by providing speakers and presenters with continuing education of services in the field and other topics as submitted by fellow employees. Performance-based bonuses, event planning committees and annual franchise conventions are some of the ways the staff can get involved with their work lives.
All employees are assigned a fun “Joe” nickname that ties to their role in the company (VP of Franchise Development is “Joe Cool;” Director of Finance is “Joe Money”).
Mosquito Joe has a culture committee called the “Sanity Control Committee,” consisting of five team members and their CEO. The committee comes up with fun events throughout the year to allow employees to spend time together away from the office.
