Anderson Pest Solutions, the largest family owned pest management company in the Midwest, has a problem that most local businesses haven’t experienced in a long time – the company has more open positions than it can fill with qualified candidates. So company president Mark O’Hara has announced a “reward” for hiring 25 new employees before the end of the year; if successful, he’ll donate $5,000 to the Northern Illinois Food Bank.

If we meet our goal and hire at least 25 people by the end of 2011, we'll gladly donate $5,000 to the Northern Illinois Food Bank.

Anderson Pest Solutions, the largest family owned pest management company in the Midwest, has a problem that most local businesses haven’t experienced in a long time – the company has more open positions than it can fill with qualified candidates. So company president Mark O’Hara has announced a “reward” for hiring 25 new employees before the end of the year; if successful, he’ll donate $5,000 to the Northern Illinois Food Bank.

“We are seeking qualified candidates to join our team of experts in the pest solutions industry,” said Mark O’Hara. “We really need 50 new people by Spring of next year. But if we meet our goal and hire at least 25 people by the end of 2011, we’ll gladly donate $5,000 to the Northern Illinois Food Bank. It’s a way of giving back to the community.” The company is searching for employees to fill a range of available positions, including service technicians, customer service representatives, service managers and sales managers.

Asked to explain the company’s current hiring need, O’Hara cited an overwhelming response by both commercial and residential customers to Anderson’s Natural Choice® program of environmentally responsible services. “We’re growing pretty fast,” explained O’Hara. “Our initial residential sales are up over 30% this year and we were up about the same amount in 2010, which is when we introduced the Natural Choice® programs.” He went on to explain, “People have really responded positively to Natural Choice. There is a greater demand than we anticipated for a green alternative to the guy coming in with a tank on his back and spraying chemicals.”

The Northern Illinois Food Bank, based in Geneva, Illinois, acquires and distributes food to pantries, soup kitchens, shelters and other hunger reduction sites, providing food for an estimated 502,000 different people annually.
