    Arborist Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Princeton, NJ
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at SavATree (Princeton, NJ).

    Interview

    The interview process was streamlined and straight forward. The hiring managers were very clear and detailed with the job expectations. They also made it a very relaxed experience as far as a job interview can be.

    The office staff are very easy to work with and management is usually fair and dedicated to helping you grow and thrive within the company. Though some cases of favoritism are evident and harsh, sometimes uncomfortable, stresses can be poured on in order to meet budgets and sales goals.

    Interview Questions

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at SavATree (Indianapolis, IN) in April 2013.

    Interview

    I applied through an online posting through my college and was contacted by HR. They asked me some resume questions and then discussed the responsibilities of the job. They then went on to negotiate the hourly wage and location of the office. The offer was extended during the first call. It was an easy interview and very laid back.

    Operations Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at SavATree.

    Interview

    Extremely difficult, you first speak to recruiting and or HR, then get moved to the Branch manager where you do role playing depending on that manager, then get moved to the Regional Manager or VP and then the President DVS and with the Regional and President you will do more sales role playing that truthfully makes you feel stupid even if you have 10- 20 yrs exp..Most of the candidates have to interview with the President in the NY office unless he happens to be in the state at the time and that usually never happens. As a former Branch Manager we went through extensive training performing this interview process and most of the management hated having to treat potential employees that way but our VP and President required it and or there is the door. They also require everyone in sales, admin and management to take a personality profile exam and even if you did great on the interview but bombed the exam then you would not be hired and 99% of the exam has nothing to do with sales or arboriculture. To be honest the company trains their management to use smoke and mirrors to get people in the door and promise them all sorts of things, get them to sign the employment contract that they do not negotiate with and they never follow through with their end of the deal. It is a good company to get training if you are a new Arborist or in sales and want to get in this field but after the first year of the salary when they change you to 100% commission you should run as fast as you can!! They make it almost impossible for you to make decent money compared to what they require you to put in.

    Talent Acquisition Business Partner Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Bedford Hills, NY
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at SavATree (Bedford Hills, NY) in October 2018.

    Interview

    I had a number of interviews with members of the HR team and senior management. I had originally applied for a different role, however when it came to my interview with the Senior VP of HR, she suggested my talents could be better utilized in the TABP role. I'm glad she recognized my potential and I was offered this role instead and I'm so happy about it.

    Interview Questions

    • Tell me about X role. What went right? What went wrong? Tell me more? (they like to dig deep on interview questions and ask for further, specific examples for almost every question asked, so be prepared to know the specifics of your experience and speak to all facets of prior roles)   Answer Question
