Walt Disney World Resort Jobs

Lets be honest: You can kill bugs anywhere. Wouldnt it be more fun to do it at the foot of Disneys Space Mountain, next to the lions den at Animal Kingdom, or in lush gardens of The Grand Floridian Hotel and Resort?

Were looking for Pest Control professionals who can provide all aspects of pest management service for the famous Walt Disney World properties, including Epcot, The Magic Kingdom, Animal Kingdom and the rest of the Parks and Resorts. Opportunities exist in both Structural and Lawn and Ornament. Youd get a behind-the-scenes look at how we make the magic that few people ever experience!

Responsibilities :
Youd join a team that takes care of structural pests, rodent control, lawn and ornamental pests and diseases, termites and wood destroying organisms, native and exotic wildlife, aquatic weeds and mosquitoes. You would perform both preventive maintenance and project work and youd be doing it at the happiest place on earth!

Every day as a Pest Control Operator is different. On any given day, you might:
  • Work in view of the Floating Mountains at Pandora to treat for pests, diseases and weeds via a granular, liquid, dust, gel or ULV application, ensuring that all label guidelines are followed and all required personal protection equipment (PPE) is utilized;
  • Be watched by elephants and giraffes as you respond to a call at the Serengeti to capture and/or trap nuisance wildlife, including snakes and raccoons;
  • Be in the Parks at night, when the Guests are gone and it is just you, the rides, and the warm Florida air;
  • Diagnose existing and potential pest issues via routine inspections in a gorgeous resort like the Polynesian;
  • Educate our Cast Members -- and if they are interested, our Guests -- what preventive, non-chemical steps could be taken to alleviate various pest situations;
  • Communicate with your peers across multiple departments to share info and best practices;
  • Manage preventive maintenance schedules within an area like Epcot, and ensure that all work is completed;
  • Improve your skill set through company-required training and evaluation sessions, for both pest control and other regulatory required programs;
  • Enjoy Disney experiences with your exclusive Cast Member perks, and steep discounts on things you really use.

Basic Qualifications :
  • At least 3 years of documented pest control experience under a licensed operation, and/or a college degree in a related field;
  • An understanding of Integrated Pest Management (IPM) and a willingness to work in an IPM environment;
  • Deep understanding of/compliance with all state and federal laws regarding pest control, wildlife control and pesticide usage;

  • A valid Florida drivers license;
  • Since pests never take a break, Disneys Pest Management provides coverage 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year which means that you need the flexibility to work any shift, any day, including holidays and weekends.

It would be helpful if you also have:
  • State certification as a Certified Pest Control Operator in all categories
  • Experience working in the Maximo work scheduling system
  • Computer literacy, with some experience using Microsoft programs, including Outlook, Word, Excel, PowerPoint and Access
