    Plumber/Technician Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Birmingham, AL

    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 days - interviewed at Roto-Rooter in February 2013.

    Interview Details

    it was easily considered a joke listening to a memorized speech. They are very good at telling everything you want to hear, and MANY promises- later learn they lied. They promise to have an employee apply the vinyl logos/stickers to your van- and hand them to you a month later saying you're an employee! the insurance was promised to be great coverage, and was horrible- get your own! was promised low van insurance rates- WRONG! get you own. was promised training- blatant lie!!

    Field Training Manager Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Roto-Rooter in May 2011.

    Interview Details

    Initial interview was a phone interview with a recruiter from main office. Second interview was with the GM, then three phone interviews with Regional VP, Director of Recruiting, and President. Seemed to be a detailed and tedious process. I haven't spoken with the VP, Director, or the President since. Seemed to be just an arbitrary process.

    Negotiation Details
    They offered me more money than I made at the time. I had planned to haggle a bit, but their offer was very aggressive.

    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 6 weeks - interviewed at Roto-Rooter in January 2012.

    Interview Details

    I had 2 interviews, one being with the production manager and he explained the company, training and what was required and expected of me. Very straight forward. A 14 week training program mostly on the job training with a senior tech and friday was dedicated to plumbing school. The 2nd and final interview was with the general manager. he is the one who makes the final decision. It was mostly a conversation. They are REALLY looking for sales people and are VERY big on personal appearance and grooming. They are a 24 hour on call service so expect weekends and late nights as well. You never know what your last service call will be.

    It was a straight $14 and hour during training. Once you supply your own van, it will go up to $18 an hour. After training, you will get 30% of all revenue generated from the service call.
