    Field Service Technician Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Dayton, OH
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Roto-Rooter (Dayton, OH).

    Interview

    I applied online and was contacted the same day. After about 4 emails, an interview was setup for later in the week. I was made to fill out the background check document before my interview, which began about 15 minutes late. It should be said that the interviewer had no one in his office as I sat and waited for my interview to begin.

    I was asked no questions as to my abilities or background. The entire interview was spent with the interviewer telling me about the position. I feel like they would have hired pretty much anyone with a pulse.

    Service Technician Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Chatsworth, CA
    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Roto-Rooter (Chatsworth, CA) in October 2015.

    Interview

    I was sat down in an office with a very grumpy older gentleman and asked about my experience level. I answered all of his questions and he said he would recommend me to the management. He also told me people rarely last more than six months. He seemed very dissatisfied to even be in the room, the environment was very depressing and there was some writing on a white board about different generations of people and how they communicate. I told him I wasn't a salesman and that I didn't want to be a salesman, and he assured me they everything they do is legitimate. Which was the first lie I was ever told while working for Roto-Rooter.

    Water Restoration Technician Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Romulus, MI
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Roto-Rooter (Romulus, MI) in April 2015.

    Interview

    I went in for an interview with the HR lady. She was very nice and explained things as best she could. But before my interview the head of the "department" supervisor was there and started asking me what I was applying for. He made it clear that he ran a tight ship, I would be on call 24/7 with the same pay at $11 am hour, I would be in all types of messes etc. I was OK with that, not happy with the pay but was still considering it. He then told me he required that his "techs" be clean cut, not clean nice shaved go-tee's or mustaches etc, but I would have to shave off all of my facial hair and take out my earrings to be able to work for him. He was very rude about it. I was offered the job but declined.

    Reasons for Declining
