    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. 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 Questions
    • Technical questions about background. Nothing earth shattering. There were several panel interviews. This is the format they like to use.   View Answer
    Reasons 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.

The company made it easy for me to reach my destination and was flexible in arranging for travel. I received a verbal offer less than two weeks later.
