    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at JR Simplot (Boise, ID).

    Interview

    Process is fairly straight forward. You apply online, wait for a recruiter to get back to you. If they like you, you'll get aphone interview, if you pass that, you'll interview with a panel of people including a recruiter for the company, and 2 or 3 managers/ supervisors. They get back to you fairly quickly if you got the job (within a week or so).

    Interview Questions

    • They ask lots of behavioral type of questions. So be ready.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    None

    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at JR Simplot (Boise, ID) in June 2013.

    Interview

    Panel interview style, 4-5 people. Questions are engineered around situations. Ex: "Tell me about a time when.....describe the situation, what your actions were and what the outcome was". Each panelist takes turns asking a question and then they all rate you on a 1-5 scale for each question. When you leave, they add your score which is a large majority of their decision making. All panelists discuss but the hiring manager usually has the final say. Just because you have the highest numerical score doesn't necessarily guarantee you the job.

    Interview Questions

    • Describe a time where you had to make a major decision and the information provided to you was inadequate.   1 Answer

    Product Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at JR Simplot.

    Interview

    Interview process was quite simple as I already knew many of the people within the group from past employer activities with the company. My extensive experience in product management / development was an obvious fit for the position the company was trying to fill. Pay scale was already established and was reasonable so there was not a lot of negotiation on salary necessary..

    Interview Questions

    • None of the questions were difficult or unexpected but again, the position that I was seeking was one that I already had many years of experience and I was already strongly familiar with the product line that the product management position was responsible for managing.   Answer Question
