    Associate Scientist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Denver, CO
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Denver, CO
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at Leprino Foods.

    Interview Details

    Six hour interview and no coffee in the entire building. No coffee, really. I was expected to know details of equipment that I had never used or claimed to have used which the company also did not use. The interview started out well but quickly declined into irrelevance. I went to school with a woman that worked there and she left the company within two years. The cafeteria was nice and they had a nice gym that can be accessed 24 hours a day. The people I met that were friendly seemed to be very humble to the people that were not so nice.

    Interview Questions
    • I was asked how to plan a vacation. I understand that the idea to was get a glimpse into my reasoning and methods but I've never planned a vacation before, I'm a grad student. I was also asked to decipher a poorly drawn piece of equipment that I had never used. Felt like I was playing pictionary but with worse consequences.   Answer Question

    Executive Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Denver, CO
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Denver, CO
    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Leprino Foods in July 2013.

    Interview Details

    I interviewed with an HR recruiter. She called 10 minutes last, with no apology. She had no personality, had me on speaker and I believe mute. It was obvious she was completely distracted. I could tell after the first question that she was not interested in me as a candidate. She never gave an encouraging sound nor did she try to actually have a conversation-it was strictly the most basic questions.She didn't ask me if I had any questions and just tried to rush me off the phone.
    She promised to get back to me in 2 days "so I wouldn't be left hanging" her words and 2 weeks later still no call or email.
    She was extremely unprofessional and I decided after 5 minutes I wouldn't want to work at a company that would employ a person like that.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Leprino Foods.

    Interview Details

    Started with campus recruiting, where I met a representative from the HR department and the Finance department. Went to First round interview, 2 on 1 where they asked they typical behavioral interview style questions. Heard from them a couple days later and was asked to come in for a final round at their office in Denver along with about 15-20 other candidates. It was a full day from 9-1pm and met/interviewed with 3 different managers in the finance department, where they asked further behavioral questions and questions about my work experiences and school experiences. Overall it was a good process got to know the people involved and a decent amount of what the environment at Leprino is like.

    Interview Questions
    • Are you a leader or a follower (I was assured that neither is good/bad but its important to know yourself) and how do you justify the type you are with specific examples.   Answer Question
    • You say you are a hard worker, but how do you justify that you work harder than many of the people coming to the US from other countries who are just as smart and work just as hard if not harder than you and are quite successful because of their culture's work ethic?...... I was really surprised to hear a question like this because it is a bit delicate and provoking.   Answer Question
