    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at DAVACO in June 2016.

    Interview

    Recruiter that initiated my application was altogether professional, thoroughly explaining the hiring process, patiently answering my questions, transparent about plusses and minuses of a Davaco position, friendly and polite.
    My next step was Skype interview with the director of operations. Same professionalism and transparency.
    A senior vp also called me to discuss the position and was more than cordial.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at DAVACO (Temple, TX) in June 2016.

    Interview

    Interviewed over the phone with a recruiter after applying, then skyped the second interview with the VP Ops, then rest of onboarding done online via email. Tools expected to have and travel with is ridiculous. EVERYONE is a Foreman Lead.... No true Lead or Foreman work. Basically a Gaggle with whatever needing to be done within the time constraint as wanted to be done, no process. Hotels ok, I lucked out and had a cool roommate, plus we worked different shifts so hardly seen him.

    The process took a week. I interviewed at DAVACO.

    Interview

    She was very nice but wouldn't let me ask many questions. It was very rushed and wouldn't really let me speak. She was very detailed in what the position entailed though.

    PT Merchandise Coordinator Interview

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at DAVACO (Los Angeles, CA) in March 2015.

    Interview

    I submitted my application in December. The response time for emails was very long and after months of emails I only now have received an email from a hiring manager to conduct a Skype interview. I guess the person I had emailing back and forth for months was only a recruiter. I really wanted this job and was excited about it but after 3 months of waiting I have found a similar position with a different company and didn't continue with my application.

    Lead Carpenter Foreman Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at DAVACO.

    Interview

    Initial interview with a HR Recruiter. 30 minutes. We covered relevant experience and the general requirements of the position were explained wellI. I was not sold on any benefits; of the position, of accepting employment with Davaco. I had opportunities to engage in conversation and ask questions.

    The second interview was with a Field Supervisor. Less than 20 minutes. Again the tone of the interview centered around assessing my wiliness to work nights, share accommodation and grind away night in and night out. It was a standard interrogation / defensive "prove yourself" interview. I had no opportunity to ask the questions I had prepared. Little to no opportunity to engage in conversation. I ask for the position and was told "I don't know about this one."

    Both interviewers stated concerns about the fact I had been out of trade work for five years from 2009-2014. Ignored the fact I wanted 3rd shift 100% travel work with gaps of employment.

    Interview Questions

    • "Do you know what level 5 sheet rock finish is?"

      This is a yes or no question. It does little to assess the skill set or competence of the applicant.

      Perhaps "How do you get to level five on an eight hour job?" is more relevant.
