    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at American Sugar Refining.

    Interview process was third party directly with upper management via a recruiter. After several face-to-face interviews, some tests, physical and drug screen process to hire is about 30-120 days. Be ready to grab a vest, boots, hard hat, eye protection, hearing protection and gloves. If you love the smell of making sugar this job is for you.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I interviewed at American Sugar Refining in May 2014.

    Interview

    I found the company at a career fair. I was later contacted by HR for a phone interview. About a month later, I was invited for an onsite interview. There were a few others interviewing on the same day. We went on a tour of the sugar factory at the same time. The smell of sugar was very strong, which may or may not be a good thing. After the tour, we all went for lunch. That was followed by one on one interviews. A total of 3 short interviews, one of which was with the HR manager. Any job from this company requires a 2 year rotating training period. Come prepared with many questions to ask, otherwise the interview would seem short.

    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at American Sugar Refining (Boca Raton, FL).

    Interview

    Applied online, then received request of phone interview with corporate recruiter. From there, was invited to campus for an in-person interview. It was a small scale innovation center and the atmosphere was welcoming. I spoke with the team I would work with of about 3 people and the head of the department. It was a little nerve-racking since I had to speak with so many people including the head of the department. I was there for about 2.5 hours. It was clear that they wanted to have someone who would mesh well with the team. The only thing was that they did not give me a decision for over a month later. I was told this was because of scheduling conflicts, but that was quite a lot of time not knowing.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at American Sugar Refining (Chalmette, LA) in May 2013.

    Interview

    I had an impromptu phone interview with the Packaging Manager. Mostly talked about resume. Onsite interview was very unorganized. Met with HR who wasn't prepared to discuss the benefits. This guy is extremely weird. I also met with the Warehouse Manager and the Refinery Manager. Refinery manager always asks you to ask him 3 questions. No set questions asked by anyone. It was more conversational.
