    I worked at Phillips & Jordan full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great owner and senior executive team. Very safety active company and you’re treated as a person and not a number

    Cons

    A lot of working out of town. Can be hard on family when you’re gone for long periods of time.

    Advice to Management

    Some of the senior managers can be intimidated by a young, active and driven employee.

    Heavy Equipment Operator Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Marietta, OH
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Phillips & Jordan (Marietta, OH) in July 2013.

    Interview

    The hiring process consisted of them calling and asking me to come to Ohio. I showed up and went through safety and orientation training and drug testing the next day. There was never an actual interview or any questions other than over the phone they asked what equipment I could operate.

    Interview Questions

    • There really weren't any difficult questions. It was pretty straightforward after agreeing on when I would make the drive to the job office location.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    They told me what they were paying operators and I didn't really try to negotiate as I really needed to get the job.
