Planner/Scheduler Interview

Planner/Scheduler

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 3 days - interviewed at Land O'Lakes.

Interview Details – There were 4 interviews with various management and human resource. It was dragged on and interviewers were late or postponed their appointment with you. Had to fill out my application online two times because of a software issue and was making things difficult. This was what I thought to be a great career but I was greatly disappointing.

Interview Question – Questions were worded to mean the same like they were badgering you to open up something that you did previously that wasn't a positive result.   View Answer

Negotiation Details – I did my homework about my wages thanks to this and other sites similar. I was told they would match that wage based on additional yearly bonuses but these bonuses never happened. Unknown to me my job title was changed so I was kept from advancing to higher pay after creating this new title corporate red flags went away!

Difficult Interview

Transportation Planner Interview

Transportation Planner
Shoreview, MN

I applied online and interviewed at Land O'Lakes.

Interview Details – First step: Phone Interview
Second step: 5 Panel behavioral questions. You interview with 5 people, one at a time, lasting about 2-3 hours. All based on past experiences. It's very easy to lose focus during interview and the team seemed like the only work there for the money.

Interview Question – The interview process is tiring and not effective. Sitting for 2-3 hours and being asked questions by 5+ people one at a time can be challenging, tiring and confusing. They didn't offer water or any refreshment.   Answer Question
