Northwest Exterminating is Awarded a Top Workplace in Atlanta – the only Pest Control Company recognized by the Atlanta Journal Constitution out of 100 companies.
Marietta, GA – Founded in 1951, Northwest Exterminating has grown from just an exterminating company to one that provides its customers with total home solutions. From wildlife control, to attic insulation and expert lawn care services, Northwest offers what it takes to keep a home healthy.
Northwest Exterminating was founded on the values of honesty, integrity and excellence. Today, these values still remain the core of the company, as they have grown from a family of 2 to a family of over 300 team members. With 19 service centers throughout Georgia and Tennessee along with servicing South Carolina and Alabama, Northwest Exterminating has proven itself to be an industry leader in pest and termite solutions.
In addition to being a leading pest control provider in the Southeast, Northwest is also notably recognized as a top employer in the Atlanta area for the second year in a row. Named the number seven “Best Place to Work” in mid-sized companies by the Atlanta Journal Constitution in 2013, Northwest takes pride in its employment benefits and continues to strive to be a top employer.
Northwest CEO, Steve Phillips says “It’s an honor to be given recognition by the AJC, as we take pride in the culture we have created for our team members. People spend a lot of time at work, so it’s only right that we make it a good place for them to be.”
Northwest offers great benefits to their team members, but one thing that really goes a long way, is how they truly value them. A Wellness committee was recently created to enhance the lives of team members by encouraging a healthy lifestyle. Northwest also created a new set of core values, that they promote to team members to adopt not only work, but outside of the workplace as well.
Northwest has a special group of Team Members that go by the Good Deed Team. The Good Deed Team was created as Northwest’s community initiative to make a difference. Every month the Good Deed Team does random acts of kindness and promotes “paying it forward” to the recipients.
Northwest doesn’t just provide a great work environment; they strive to enhance the lives of their employees on a daily. For those that want to be a part of a growing company and a great team, visit our Careers page for a list of available positions.
