    I have been working at The Davey Tree Expert Company full-time (more than 8 years)


    Stock Program is awesome, Flexible Hours are available, Manager has a very caring attitude, Competitive Pay, Leader in industry, Constantly buying up our competitors.


    Pay Raises are processed slowly and promises are not always held up, Morale at some offices is low due to some managers being micro managers but not always the case, Safety reinforced but employees don't always buy in.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Some offices have very low morale, raises need to be handled better, and execute actions if promises are made.

    Positive Outlook

    Application Details

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

    Interview Details

    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
    • There really were no difficult or unexpected questions. In fact, he really did not ask too many questions. He more or less explained the tasks, equipment, software, etc.   Answer Question
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview
