Accounting Supervisor Interview

Accounting Supervisor
Morrow, GA

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 2 months - interviewed at Chiquita Brands in June 2012.

Interview Details – Had a phone call with the recruiter and then the Controller and then was able to get an onsite interview. The onsite was interested. I was shoved around from room to room and was apologized to constantly. I can tell most people at the plant were racist.

Interview Question – Technical questions about background. Nothing earth shattering. There were several panel interviews. This is the format they like to use.   View Answer

Reason for Declining – Racist people at plant. Overhead the HR person saying she didn't care what they did with me. Was shuffled around on interviews. People don't care about folks - they pretend but they are ridiculous.
