    I worked at Hawthorne Machinery full-time (More than a year)


    If you like to work alot this is for you. If your looking to have a home life forget about it.


    Low pay, good ole boy club, very surprising to me the rate of 20 dollars an hour to drive lowbed and haul around million dollar equipment.

    Advice to Management

    None that will be listened too

    Average Interview


    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Hawthorne Machinery (San Diego, CA) in June 2015.


    It started off with me and the product support general manager, then the vice president joined the interview part of the way through. They went over a brief overview of the company, asked some questions about me, then reviewed my resume.
