Quality Control Lab Technician Interview

Quality Control Lab Technician
Grand Rapids, MI

I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at Dean Foods in August 2012.

Interview Details – I interviewed at the Grand Rapids, MI location. It was a fairly easy going interview and both interviewers seemed nice. It was a pretty pleasant experience. They seemed more interested in my people skills than they did my technical skills

Interview Question – none really, pretty typical interview questions.   Answer Question

Reason for Declining – The work environment is disgusting. I've worked in a factory before, and this place is like a labyrinth. It's been around since the 60's and it looks like not much has been updated. The place reeks of ammonia so if your sensitive to smells, this is not the place to be. The lab itself was unkempt and had dirty carpet on the floors, the cabinets looked ready to fall apart, and it's a very confined work space. The equipment looked like it's not been taken care of. The rest of the factory had paint peeling off walls in the cleaning areas, some of the brick flooring was broken and chipped and water is everywhere. They stress a clean work environment but I couldn't stomach the the place. This was personally a bad experience with the tour. Everyone seemed really friendly though so it seems the people who do work there would not be an issue whatsoever
