    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at The Davey Tree Expert Company in January 2014.

    Interview

    I received a call from the hiring manager just over a month after applying online. We arranged a video Skype interview two days later which went, in my opinion, quite well. When asked when I should hear back from him, he replied later this week. This I found odd since it was already a Thursday, but, of course, I did not question it. Unfortunately, I never did hear back from him so I took the initiative and followed up with him. We played some phone tag, and then, he just ignored my calls and emails. He was a nice guy and appeared like a good guy to work for. It would have been nice to treated in a more professional way.

    Interview Questions

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at The Davey Tree Expert Company in January 2012.

    Interview

    Process was very simple. I was told that they wanted to offer me a position in management. The promotion prior to that I was simple told that they were starting a new position and I was being considered. The "interview" came rather unexpectedly as I was picked up from my job location and taken to the interview. Upon arriving I was put in a room with other candidates were the job expectations were discussed.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at The Davey Tree Expert Company (Chicago, IL) in July 2011.

    Interview

    Simple questions about goals and any experience. The interview only took less than 45 min. I was called a day later to do a drug test. Then 2-3 days later got a call with results. They had me go in after paper worked cleared and drug testing passed. I watched about 2 days of videos and did CPR traing. I also took a pesticide test that same week. It's definitely a plus to study ahead of time. I would say from day of interview till first day of actual training it took about a week. I had training for about 2 weeks before they had me driving on my own doing lawn applications.
