    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a weekinterviewed at Chiquita Brands (Fort Lauderdale, FL) in June 2015.

    Interview

    Interview process was fast and simple. I got recommended by a current employee. They have some behavior questions but nothing complicated. Managers are very down to earth persons made me feel very comfortable counting that I get extremely nervous on interview to the point that I loose my voice sometimes :( It was a very good experience !

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Chiquita Brands (Morrow, GA) in June 2012.

    Interview

    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.   1 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.
