Approves of CEO


Everyone at Acres Group and the additional divisions are really good people who are respectful and nice to work with. This is something you don't always find in today's working world.


Mother nature makes it difficult to plan and you have to be flexible. No two days are the same.

    Average Interview

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Acres Group (United States)


    Excellent review process, made me feel very comfortable, and welcome. Several levels of interviews with flexible scheduling.

    HR Provides a SOP for each interviewer so that they can get apples to apples comparisons.

    Describe a project that you failed to deliver on, and what you did to recover.
