I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ months – interviewed at Leprino Foods (Denver, CO) in April 2015.
I applied online (and met part of the team at a career fair) and it took the recruiter approximately four months to get back to me. They then expedited the hiring process by bringing me in for a three hour interview where I met with different members of the marketing team. Most of the interview questions were situational and behavioral.

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 days – interviewed at Leprino Foods.
Over the phone. Took a month to get back to me. Came in for interview with supervisors. Upper management a bit intimidating. Met for a 1:1 and then met with their manager. I over dressed but was a glad I did. I smiled a lot and by the end of it I felt like I could not longer smile. Especially because I felt like the interview was not going very well.
- Wanted me to explain what I knew about QA and what things would be considered important for my position. 1 Answer
I did not negotiate. I was offered the position over the phone.

I applied while still finishing up college, but was able to interview. This process took around 3 months. It was long, but it worked out well. They were very accommodating. I was living across the country during the interview process, so they let me interview via Skype after the first few phone interviews.
- Explain HPLC to someone who knows nothing about chemistry. 1 Answer

Very long process, very good ppl, onsite 6 interviews, 5 rounds, reference checks, dinner interview, plant tour, caliper test has leadership and analytically questions, onsite interview was based on the caliper response, repetitive questions, HR and all the staff treated very nicely, all the expense will be taken care off

I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at Leprino Foods (Denver, CO).
The manager asks questions so he can hear himself say the answers. The questions are unclear and so you're not sure what kind of answer they're looking for. But regardless, you'll answer wrong so the manager can correct you
- The most difficult part about the interview was having to sit there listening to the manager talk about things that are wrong, or out of date, and refusing to listen to anything i said. it was hardly an interview. Answer Question
I was unable to negotiate more; I learned later through other employees it was because I'm a woman

I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks – interviewed at Leprino Foods (Tracy, CA) in January 2014.
Started with a phone screen from an HR rep from their corporate office in Denver, CO. It went well and he passed my information to the hiring manager at the plant I applied to. Went through another phone screen with the local HR rep and hiring manager together. Frances (HR Rep) was very nice and Tom (Hiring Manager) was very personable. I was selected for an in-person interview at their plant where Tom and Frances were along with 3 other employees of varying levels within the company.
The interview went well with kind of a random, round table type approach asking various behavioral questions as well as competency questions.
I believe I'm one of the final candidates because they're asking me to come in for a 3 hour tour of the plant and area where I'd be working.
They ended up offering me $65,000 but i went with another offer
Overall, the entire process took about a month.
- I had applied to another location within Leprino's but for a different position about 6 months prior - I never heard anything so I assumed I wasn't a good fit. My resume at that time was not as updated as the one I submitted for the warehouse supervisor. Initially, they questioned my integrity due to the different wording of my resumes - I honestly thought I had lost the job. 1 Answer
Reasons for Declining
I found another opportunity I couldn't pass up. One concern was that none off the management had been there longer than 4 years...

I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week – interviewed at Leprino Foods (Denver, CO) in January 2014.
Applied through recruiter which was a speedy process. 45 minute phone interview with the Manager and I came for on-site interview. The company paid for my travel, hotel, flight, and even meals. I interviewed 1:1 with 7 people for 45 minutes each. Each interviewer had different interview questions but made me feel comfortable during the whole process.

I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeks – interviewed at Leprino Foods in December 2013.
I came to Leprino as a contractor for the Systems Team. There was an opening in another department so I applied. Initially for the contractor position i did a phone interview with four people (employees and manager). When I applied for full time I interviewed with my current boss and the IT Director. For the regular candidate the regular process is lengthy. I find It is well worth it. Leprino makes sure they hire the right candidates.
My expectation were met.
