  • Great work environment!   We get things done, and have fun doing it!
  • One small thing, almost always leads to another small thing, until all of a sudden, it's a big thing!
  • Everyone knows their place and knows what others are working on.  This makes the shop a great team atmosphere!
  • Plenty of "sick trucks" just waiting their turn for a checkup and possible surgery!    
Lots of work to do, we just need more techs!
  • Nick is almost always elbow deep in a project!
  • Training is an ongoing thing here at Wallwork!  It's encouraged just as much as showing up to work!
  • I believe the term that realtors would use to describe the breakroom is "cozy".  It's not huge, but it's effective!
  • It's nice to have leaders like Dennis to work with!   He's always happy to  help and isn't afraid to get dirty!
  • Wallwork provides our techs with laptops with dealer software.  It's great to see techs being creative in how they use them!
  • You won't find better management than Andy Hoff in Minot!   Great guy, fair, honest, supportive, and a little bit of fun!

Is there anything else you’d like to mention about career development and community?

Bringing in new hires from college gives us the ability to mold and grow them in to our own culture, creating that team environment and encouraging them to have a voice on the team.

Do you have an application form and how long does it typically take to complete?

Yes we do via our website www.wallworktrucks.com/careers that will take you to our webpage with a link to a list of our open positions. From there, choose which position to apply for and start a profile for yourself. This profile will become your employee profile if hired. The application can take anywhere from 10 to 40 minutes depending on how much experience you choose to include. Having a resume to link to the application will help with the length of time it takes to fill it out.

Do you phone screen applicants before doing in-person interviews?

Our HR department does a quick screen of your application and/or resume, then forwards it to the appropriate hiring manager. From there, the hiring manager will reach out to you to schedule a phone or in person interview.

What do your in-person interviews entail?

We want to make sure that you will fit our culture here. We do not want to set anyone up to fail, so we are very thorough with our interviewing. sometimes a second interview is needed.

Do you perform background checks, drug screening, or personality tests before hiring an applicant?

We do run a background check, and MVR check if you're applying for a position that would require you to drive. We also do a drug screen on day one. We do not run a personality test at this time.

Do you perform a skill assessment before hiring an applicant? If yes, what does it entail?

We do not run a skills test up front. However, we do perform one with the new hire after 60-90 days to confirm what technician class and pay they should be at.

After an in-person interview, approximately how long should I expect to wait for a rejection or an offer?

The offer can come anytime between the end of the first interview up to a month or more depending on the amount of applicants. We understand that most techs have more than a couple offers typically, so our offer should come within a week or 2. If you are not chosen for the position we will notify you via email within 2 weeks of your interview.

Approximately how long does the full hiring process take from submitting the application to the time of the hiring decision?

The hiring process can take anywhere from a few days to a couple months. It mostly depends on the position and the amount of applicants. We're not in the habit of hiring the one person that applied just to fill the position. We are looking for the right talent that fits the right shop.

Is there anything else you’d like to mention about your hiring process?

It can be long and drawn out, but with good positive communication, the process is pretty simple.
