    Environmental Professional Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Fredericksburg, VA
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at HEPACO (Fredericksburg, VA) in December 2016.

    Interview

    I applied on Hepaco's website and was called the next day to schedule an interview for the following week.
    The hiring manager got wrapped up in a project so after waiting 2 hours, he asked the branch manager to interview me. The interview was very informal and the only things he was concerned about was my proximity to work and making sure I didn't have anything that would prevent a quick response if I were called in (spouse, kids, classes). I inquired about the turnover rate, which he responded is abnormally high presumably because of the awful hours (getting called back in at night ~3x/wk, but still working 8-5 everyday) and low pay ($14-$16/HR), but the company recently did a survey in hopes of identifying issues.
    He said that I'm welcome to come on board and gave me the info for a preemployment physical and uniform/ steel toed boots, and to expect a call from the hiring manager within a day regarding pay and benefits. A week passed and I didn't hear anything so I left a message for the hiring manager. Two weeks after leaving the message and I still haven't heard anything.

    Interview Questions

    • Are you willing to work at any hour of the day, up to 60 hrs a week? Are you married or have any attachments that would prevent you from coming back in after hours?   Answer Question

    Reasons for Declining

    I'm not sure if a "you're welcome to come on board; expect a call to discuss salary and benefits by tomorrow" qualifies as a job offer, but the interview gave me the impression that they just want employees at their beck and call by the way he discouraged anything outside of work that involves a time commitment. The only reason I'd accept a position is to complete the company-paid HAZWOPER training then quit.

    Reasons for Declining

    While the rate I was offered was reasonable, by the time I added in my commute it wasn't worth the pay I would have been receiving.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at HEPACO (Knoxville, TN) in April 2015.

    Interview

    Very informal interview. Project Manager made it so comfortable during the interview that I felt like I had known him my whole life by the end. Ended up being one of the most trusted PMs I ever worked for at HEPACO.

    Hazmat Technician Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Nashville, TN
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at HEPACO (Nashville, TN) in July 2014.

    Interview

    the interview process was typical, the interviewer asked about my skills and work history. It was an interview... the branch manager sat me on a couch and asked a bunch of questions, and asked if I could handle this type of work. If you are young (under 24ish) then you will have to have a lot of experience, in this industry theres not a lot of slack given for horsing around because most of the work can be life threatening if safety isn't thought of at all times.

    I applied online. I interviewed at HEPACO.

    Interview

    Straightforward. Come prepared with what you know about the industry as well as learn what the company does. It helps them know that you're on the same page and they don't have to necessarily go in to full detail.

    Interview Questions

    • Again, straightforward. They just want to see what you know about the industry. Definitely do a little research about the job you'll be doing-duties and responsibilities.   Answer Question
