Associate Controls Engineer Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
Denver, CO

I applied online and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Leprino Foods.

Interview Details – I interviewed with 5 people from the controls department. All of the interviews went well, and was told by each and every person that I was not only more than qualified but a good fit for the company. As part of the process they had me take a personality assessment. A week later I was told that they had not selected me for the position. After doing some research it turns out that they just settled a law suit for discriminating by using a personality assessment. I find this extremely unsettling, especially with no feedback from the hiring manager or HR. Be wary when interviewing with this company.

Interview Question – Most of the questions on the personality assessment.   Answer Question

Associate Scientist Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
Denver, CO

I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at Leprino Foods.

Interview Details – Six hour interview and no coffee in the entire building. No coffee, really. I was expected to know details of equipment that I had never used or claimed to have used which the company also did not use. The interview started out well but quickly declined into irrelevance. I went to school with a woman that worked there and she left the company within two years. The cafeteria was nice and they had a nice gym that can be accessed 24 hours a day. The people I met that were friendly seemed to be very humble to the people that were not so nice.

Interview Question – I was asked how to plan a vacation. I understand that the idea to was get a glimpse into my reasoning and methods but I've never planned a vacation before, I'm a grad student. I was also asked to decipher a poorly drawn piece of equipment that I had never used. Felt like I was playing pictionary but with worse consequences.   Answer Question

Easy Interview

Executive Assistant Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
Denver, CO

I applied online - interviewed at Leprino Foods in July 2013.

Interview Details – I interviewed with an HR recruiter. She called 10 minutes last, with no apology. She had no personality, had me on speaker and I believe mute. It was obvious she was completely distracted. I could tell after the first question that she was not interested in me as a candidate. She never gave an encouraging sound nor did she try to actually have a conversation-it was strictly the most basic questions.She didn't ask me if I had any questions and just tried to rush me off the phone.
She promised to get back to me in 2 days "so I wouldn't be left hanging" her words and 2 weeks later still no call or email.
She was extremely unprofessional and I decided after 5 minutes I wouldn't want to work at a company that would employ a person like that.

Interview Question – All questions were very basic straight out of interviewing 101   Answer Question

Finance Development Program Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
Denver, CO

I applied through college or university and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Leprino Foods.

Interview Details – Started with campus recruiting, where I met a representative from the HR department and the Finance department. Went to First round interview, 2 on 1 where they asked they typical behavioral interview style questions. Heard from them a couple days later and was asked to come in for a final round at their office in Denver along with about 15-20 other candidates. It was a full day from 9-1pm and met/interviewed with 3 different managers in the finance department, where they asked further behavioral questions and questions about my work experiences and school experiences. Overall it was a good process got to know the people involved and a decent amount of what the environment at Leprino is like.

Interview Questions

  • Are you a leader or a follower (I was assured that neither is good/bad but its important to know yourself) and how do you justify the type you are with specific examples.   Answer Question
  • You say you are a hard worker, but how do you justify that you work harder than many of the people coming to the US from other countries who are just as smart and work just as hard if not harder than you and are quite successful because of their culture's work ethic?...... I was really surprised to hear a question like this because it is a bit delicate and provoking.   Answer Question

Training Specialist Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
Beaverton, OR

I applied through an employee referral and the process took a day - interviewed at Leprino Foods in May 2010.

Interview Details – Initial interview was for a training specialist position. I was asked to tell about my background. I was then asked to talk about specific training situations. The interview was conversational with the hiring manager providing insight into the position responsibilities. Then I was asked about my salary expectations. I asked for the salary range and discovered that the upper end was lower than expectations. The hiring manager felt that this was the case and went on to interview for a manager position that was available. The questions were geared towards managing people and higher level criteria within training and development. During the course of the interview I uncovered that previous employees within the department moved on or were promoted to other positions within the organization.

Interview Details – Leprino Foods is revamping their intern and management trainee program in order to fill the pipeline with qualified talent for the next years to come. This post concerns the initial interview that I was able to obtain after speaking with a recruiter at my campus' job fair.

The interview consisted of the HR manager and a recent graduate from my school asking behavioral questions. Be prepared to relate prior experiences to relevant situations and describe yourself as a candidate. My interview went well and the two gentlemen were quite cordial and even jovial at times. I look forward to hearing from them in the near future.
