    I have been working at Enviva full-time (More than 3 years)


    There are four people above me in the organizational structure and I can think of powerful, concrete examples where all four of them went above and beyond to unselfishly help me – professionally and personally. Moreover, there are others outside of my reporting chain and department that have contributed to my development. It’s a good place to grow, acquire responsibility, and help make an impact on the environment at the same time.


    Technology and processes are lagging for what you’d expect at a company this size. With that said, Enviva is working to improve these aspects, which are probably on par with or better than those at companies who also got first significant revenue in ~2011.

    Average Interview


    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Enviva (Raleigh, NC) in January 2018.


    Relatively straightforward, interview with 8 people one at a time, 1 hour each, lasted all day. Four of these were in person, 2 on the phone, and 2 on skype. All of this from the Enviva office.
