CLEVELAND — A lot of people are looking for a job right now. So, News 5 is helping you rebound by telling you about companies that are hiring. This opportunity is perfect for people who love the outdoors. The Davey Tree Expert Company is hiring.

It has been based in Northeast Ohio for more than 130 years, making landscapes here at home and across North America look their best.

"If you're a person who likes working outside, whether you like working in a team or individually, we have a job for you," said Sandra Reid, vice president of corporate communications and strategic planning administration.

The company provides tree care, grounds maintenance and environmental solutions for the residential, commercial, utility and consulting arenas.

Right now, the company is hiring for positions from groundskeepers to engineers to pilots. And, a bonus for workers: the company is employee-owned across America.

"Employee-ownership enables all our employees to have a stake in ownership," said Reid. "Regardless of your level in the organization, you can own shares of the Davey Company after you’ve reached the eligibility period, and it's not unusual for someone to retire with a nice retirement nest egg of Davey-share income.”

The company also has a collaboration with Kent State University, where Reid says Davey training can help you attain an associate degree.

"If you're looking to make a career change and you don't have a background in horticulture or arboriculture, you can receive on-the-job training with Davey," she said. "If you already are involved in a career in the green industry, those transition here, and we also have positions with advanced degrees as well in all areas of our support services - whether that be information technology, communications or marketing."

Reid said you can also text “DaveyJobs” to 91385 to discover your Davey career and a Davey recruiter will be in touch.
