Talent Acquisition Interview

Talent Acquisition
Watsonville, CA

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Driscoll’s in October 2012.

Interview Details – Originally interviewed for one job but talked my way to a position I was more interested in, the Talent Acquisition role. As I did not have much prior experience in that role. we mainly talked about the company values and overall knowledge of company. Had a first round phone interview, followed by an in-person 1:1/group interview.

Interview Question – Had to know the 4 company values.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – There were salary ranges they had set for internships and they put me at the top due to the fact that I had a bachelor's degree.

Business Systems Analyst Interview

Business Systems Analyst
Watsonville, CA

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at Driscoll’s in June 2013.

Interview Details – Interviewed with HR and Department head. While the process was very typical, I don't believe that enough information was gathered about my experience nor did the employer really know what they were looking for at the time. There are many questions that I would have asked and follow up would certainly have been more robust.

Marketing Intern Interview

Marketing Intern
Watsonville, CA

I applied through college or university and the process took 3 months - interviewed at Driscoll’s in May 2013.

Interview Details – I handed a recruiter my resume at a career fair at my university and was contacted a couple months later about the opportunity. They scheduled a preliminary phone interview with me for screening. I was then notified that they wanted to do a Skype interview. They provided me with helpful tips on how to be successful in the interview which really was a great thing. After the interview they let me know by the next week that I got the job.

Representative Interview

Representative
Watsonville, CA

I applied online and the process took 2 months - interviewed at Driscoll’s in March 2010.

Interview Details – A very very long process with many, many people to meet. Had an initial phone screen with the recruiter, then 6 on-site interviews (that's right 6!!!!) before an offer was made. They will not negotiate salary on profit sharing points with lower level offers.

Interview Question – Questions around their values (passion, humility and trustworthiness). These are very subjective and hard to answer   View Answer
