In-House Counsel Interview

In-House Counsel

I applied online and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Bimbo Bakeries in February 2011.

Interview Details – Called in twice to meet with Department. Then, while waiting for offer, was called and ask (again) about my salary requirements. Was advised that I was "taking a haircut" on the money. Was then told I would be notified regardless as to whether I got the job. Two weeks later, I e-mail them about the status of the position. I then get an awkward and unprofessional call from their HR Department telling me "No".

Retail Sales Representative Interview

Retail Sales Representative
Columbus, OH

I applied online and interviewed at Bimbo Bakeries.

Interview Details – I have completed three online applications for different positions all W-2 jobs in product distribution. I am a very qualified candidate with over twenty years in the business. This company accepts online apps only, I have yet to receive any communication one way or the other on my application status. Logging into my account has shown a status of considering for the position. Still no communication until finally the job, upon inquiry, shows no longer available. I find this to be very unprofessional especially in this age of instant messageing

Maintenance Interview

Maintenance
Elkhart, IN

I applied online and the process took 6+ weeks - interviewed at Bimbo Bakeries in August 2012.

Interview Details – Applied online, was sent a link to complete a weird word association survey. After that was passed, had to take an 8 hour long KEYS test. After that, had to take a mechanical knowledge test. After that had 3 rounds of back to back interviews with HR, plant manager, maintenance engineer, process engineer, resource leader.

Typical questions asked for standard interviews and and field specific interview. Testing was intense, but fun. Really helped to weed out the people that could not hack it.

Interview Question – Can you handle 12 hour plus days?   View Answer

Negotiation Details – Very fair based on testing results.
