    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Leprino Foods.

    Interview Details

    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.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Denver, CO
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at Leprino Foods.

    Interview Details

    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

    Interview Questions
    • 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part about the interview was having to sit there listening to the manager talk about things that are wrong, or out of date, and refusing to listen to anything i said.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
    Negotiation Details
    I was unable to negotiate more; I learned later through other employees it was because I'm a woman

    Warehouse Supervisor Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Tracy, CA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Tracy, CA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Leprino Foods in January 2014.

    Interview Details

    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.

    Interview Questions
    • 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.   View 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...

    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Leprino Foods in December 2013.

    Interview Details

    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.

    Several different interviews. Recruiter, Manager, HR Manager & Manager, Director, Plant Manager. STAR process is heavily used and preferred in this company.
