Don't work at the Charlotte, NC office
Written by Climber/Trimmer (Former Employee) from Charlotte, NC on April 7, 2020
Listen, Davey Tree is a great company but do yourself a favor and stay away from the Charlotte office of Davey Tree. The manager there has extreme anger issues and runs the office with a culture of fear. Everyday you will wonder if the smallest mistake will get you fired. Trust me... Stay away.
Pros
Lots of hours and overtime
Cons
Culture of fear, Run by a tyrant with his two sons, There is no upward mobility, You will be ground up and spit out.
