Crime Scene Cleanup: Is this the right career for me?

Aftermath has 32 regional offices nationwide and is continually growing its footprint. We are constantly looking for hardworking, motivated, and compassionate individuals to join our family of crime scene cleanup technicians.

Crime scene cleanup is demanding work, both mentally and physically. As a crime scene cleanup technician, you will be exposed to highly sensitive, emotional, and from time to time, graphic situations. The position is physically challenging as our technicians have to wear full personal protective equipment (PPE) during the course of the cleanup to minimize exposure and protect against hazards that may cause injury. Our technicians come from a variety of backgrounds, from construction or restoration to first responders and law enforcement officers to customer service representatives. But they all have one thing in common – a strong desire to help lift the burden of cleanup from those who are grieving after a tragedy.

If you are searching for different kinds of experiences and lifestyle, like to travel, enjoy the camaraderie of a team, can be very flexible with your schedule, and are reliable, compassionate, and most of all, customer-focused, this is the career for you.

What does Aftermath look for in its crime scene cleanup technician candidates?

Compassion — On the job, we encounter a variety of tragic and difficult circumstances. Our crime scene cleanup technicians are trained to provide just the right amount of support and reassurance, all while remaining professionally focused on getting the job done properly.

Commitment — Aftermath is a team of dedicated “second responders,” so that when a family needs us, we are there. All of our employees must be willing to support our commitment to providing rapid response emergency service 24/7, 365 days a year.

Endurance — Crime scene cleanup is demanding work; our technicians must be able to work while wearing personal protective equipment, including a hazmat suit, full face mask with respirator, and several pairs of gloves.

Safety-focused — Above all, our employees must demonstrate considerable attention to detail, problem solving skills, and a willingness to follow proper policies and procedures.

Integrity — Our customers trust us with their homes, their safety, and their personal property. Therefore, all candidates must pass a background check, drug screen, and possess a clean driving record.

In addition to crime scene cleanup technician opportunities, Aftermath periodically searches for candidates in sales and marketing, customer service, accounting and finance, and recruiting. Most office positions are based out of our home office in Aurora, IL.

"I had no clue what to do, especially as I was overwhelmed with grief. Hooper and Weaver in Grass Valley, CA, recommended your company. As it was a Saturday, I honestly expected to have to wait a few more days to have it cleaned. But from the moment I contacted your company, I received both professional & compassionate help. While I would never wish this experience on anyone, it was good to have such a professional company & compassionate people when I needed them. I just want to say thank you to your three employees and let you know that you have some wonderful people working for you."
