    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at The Davey Tree Expert Company (Kent, OH).

    Interview

    Went in through temp agency. Interview was easy and joked a lot. Not really about the position. Was with 2 people, my direct supervisor and a department supervisor. Direct supervisor didn't get to speak much and they are the one that knew about the job. Department supervisor was clueless about the work.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at The Davey Tree Expert Company (Kent, OH) in September 2013.

    Interview

    Davey Tree's employees were extremely knowledgeable, polite, and kind throughout my entire interview. First, they wanted to know about my background to see who I was as a person. I was then asked what I would consider to be some of strengths as well as weakness's. I was then taken to lunch, and informed on the many different fields that Davey offers, as well as their overall goal as a company. Overall, Davey is a great company and I will be looking to hopefully find a long term, full time, job with them as soon as I graduate.

    Intern Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at The Davey Tree Expert Company (Kent, OH) in March 2014.

    Interview

    Quite fair as far as questions asked and my lack of experience. Interview was split into two parts, but I'm not sure what the process is like outside of corporate. After hired, you have to take a drug test, and they pull a background and credit check. Whole process lasted about three weeks after being hired.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at The Davey Tree Expert Company in January 2012.

    Process was very simple. I was told that they wanted to offer me a position in management. The promotion prior to that I was simple told that they were starting a new position and I was being considered. The "interview" came rather unexpectedly as I was picked up from my job location and taken to the interview. Upon arriving I was put in a room with other candidates were the job expectations were discussed.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at The Davey Tree Expert Company (Great Falls, MT) in March 2016.

    Interview

    Terrible. Very unprofessional. "Do you want a job? Well here you go." He met me at starbucks and didnt even really introduce himself when i met him. I have never had an interview like it since. I know better now, when it starts like this, run the other way. Had that gut feeling but didnt follow it. Should have right?

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at The Davey Tree Expert Company.

    Interview

    One phone interview, recruiter was terribly vague with details (big surprise), got the job 1 week later. This job type is in high demand simply because nobody wants to walk 20+ miles a day inspecting electrical poles.
