    I worked at Bartlett Tree Experts full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Most of the people were great to work with.

    Cons

    Where to begin? Management inept/overwhelmed. The technology was practically non-existent, very out-of-date, circa early 1990s-type report running and timesheet entering. Pay was mediocre, benefits were mediocre, office environment was downright shabby, virtually no training and clique-y.

    Advice to Management

    Office manager and arborist at the same time is probably not a good idea. If an arborist is to be out in the field working, he/she cannot be in the office managing. To manage an office, you have to spend some time there and see what goes on, on a day-to-day basis. Receive input from more than one source before making decisions. Update technology - the systems of recordkeeping and accounting I was working with were circa 1980s/90s, completely out of date. Try to do something about the cliques in that office and perhaps install this office in a property that isn't literally falling apart.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Bartlett Tree Experts (Springfield, VA) in September 2013.

    Interview

    Responded to advertisement, was called later that afternoon to schedule an interview. Interviewed two days later with Office Manager and another AA. Job offer later that same afternoon. Basically, they explained the position and asked very few questions, it was a conversation more than an interview. No skills testing, no checks that I was made aware of. Chatted for about 20 minutes, they went over the hours and general responsibilities (which they made sound pretty routine and they were...left out was the micromanagement of the Office Manager and lunacy of my would-be co-worker!).

    Interview Questions

    • Whether my commute would present a problem.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    There really wasn't a "negotiation phase" - they offered the job, told me how much it paid, I accepted and that was that.
