    Senior Process Engineer, Technical Services Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Anonymous Employee
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at Leprino Foods.

    Interview Details

    Brief call with a recruiter, phone interview with hiring manager, then on-site interview at HQ in Denver. I had to wait an hour for the 4th and final interview with the hiring manager. Apparently he was busy during our scheduled interview time. But did not seek to inform me or anyone else. I sat waiting in the interview room for 20 minutes before tracking down the HR woman and finding the hiring manager. It was very unprofessional and inconsiderate.

    Interview Questions
    • Second interviewer grilled me on technical questions. "Can you tell me the formula for a heat exchange with counter current flow?" One after another. When I told him I couldn't recall the exact formula he proceeded to show me how smart he was by stating the formula and explaining all the terms.   Answer Question

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took a dayinterviewed at Leprino Foods in February 2015.

    Interview Details

    Had three interviews with different employees who have gone through the Management Trainee Program after meeting at a college career fair. Each person I interviewed with cared deeply about the company and seemed to thoroughly enjoy working there. Their care for the company made the interview process easy. Each member also specialized in different areas of production, so it was interesting to see viewpoints from different areas of the plant.

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Leprino Foods.

    Interview Details

    Over the phone. Took a month to get back to me. Came in for interview with supervisors. Upper management a bit intimidating. Met for a 1:1 and then met with their manager. I over dressed but was a glad I did. I smiled a lot and by the end of it I felt like I could not longer smile. Especially because I felt like the interview was not going very well.

    I applied online – interviewed at Leprino Foods.

    Interview Details

    I applied while still finishing up college, but was able to interview. This process took around 3 months. It was long, but it worked out well. They were very accommodating. I was living across the country during the interview process, so they let me interview via Skype after the first few phone interviews.

    Interview Details

    Was multi stage and very lengthy.Was told I would be contacted on a Monday by HR. Two weeks later got a curt e mail. Glad I didn't get the position, just shows they don't keep their word and extremely rude considering all the hours I spent on their interview process.6 months later they are still looking.

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at Leprino Foods.

    Interview Details

    The manager asks questions so he can hear himself say the answers. The questions are unclear and so you're not sure what kind of answer they're looking for. But regardless, you'll answer wrong so the manager can correct you

    Interview Questions
    • The most difficult part about the interview was having to sit there listening to the manager talk about things that are wrong, or out of date, and refusing to listen to anything i said. it was hardly an interview.   Answer Question

    Systems Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Denver, CO
    Anonymous Employee in Denver, CO
    Application Details

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Leprino Foods.

    Interview Details

    I felt like the phone interview went well, I was upbeat and engaging, and I had answers to all the questions they asked. I was even given a heads-up by the firm who was representing me on what to respect. What I didn't expect was that by my clarifying the 3 month contract, that I'd be looking like a personality conflict. The position was presented as being a 3 month contract, with no expectation of being hired on full time, as it was an interim position as they searched for the full-time employee. I asked in the interview if the same person who was taking the interim role can be considered for the full-time engagement. Their answer was it 'could', which is very weird of an answer. I can understand the desire to present something as a 3 month contract, which is understandable, I don't understand the cloak and dagger way they seemed to describe the end of the 3 months, why no just call it a 3 month contract and call it a day. I suspect they will have issues trying to get someone for this 3 month contract, and that was their attempt to sell the position, but I wasn't biting. In any case, I felt like it was a good interview, however, based on this experience, they deemed me a personality conflict.

    Associate Controls Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Denver, CO
    Anonymous Employee in Denver, CO
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Leprino Foods.

    Interview Details

    I interviewed with 5 people from the controls department. All of the interviews went well, and was told by each and every person that I was not only more than qualified but a good fit for the company. As part of the process they had me take a personality assessment. A week later I was told that they had not selected me for the position. After doing some research it turns out that they just settled a law suit for discriminating by using a personality assessment. I find this extremely unsettling, especially with no feedback from the hiring manager or HR. Be wary when interviewing with this company.
