    Great Energy, Awesome benefits, high standards, awesome atmosphere and coworkers. Empire focuses on the health, wellness, and safety of the employees. They offer onsite training for certifications as well!


    Depending on position, you may be working long exhausting hours, the Mesa location is in a terrible spot as far as commuting to and from. Found myself packing a lunch because the traffic on Arizona avenue in that location is hectic.

    Advice to Management

    Stay consistent with team building and the great relationships you all have created wth the employees. It goes a long way over what any amount of money could pay. I believe that incentives can be implemented more a well to reward the hard work.

    Average Interview


    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Empire Southwest.


    Initial contact from HR was great. Interviews were almost militant but the office seems less rigid. The hiring manager made false statements, dangling the golden carrot with no regard for the applicants.

    Interview Questions

    • questions regarding cross-departmental working styles.   Answer Question
    • lots of personal questions masked as leading "get to know you" chit-chat   Answer Question

    Reasons for Declining

    I did not appreciate the lack of respect. If this is how they treat prospective employees, I cannot imagine as an employee. Good thing too, since the company has been in the news regarding serious financial losses.
