    Anonymous Employee in Mississauga, ON (Canada)
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Maple Leaf Foods in September 2012.

    Interview Details

    After applying online and interviewing for another job, I was referred to another recruiter for this position, which was a better fit. I was interviewed on the phone and then brought in for an in-person interview. I was then brought in for another interview, mentioning I might be considered for another position as well. The interview questions were mainly going over my resume and behavioural questions.

    Overall, I had a negative experience because HR never returned my calls or emails following the last interview. I was forewarned that Maple Leaf Foods has a long hiring process, so I was prepared for the fact that I might have multiple (seemingly needless) interviews. However I did find it fairly rude that I was never contacted after a second interview, despite my following up numerous times. I'm not impressed.

    Engineering Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Mississauga, ON (Canada)
    Anonymous Employee in Mississauga, ON (Canada)
    Application Details

    The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Maple Leaf Foods in September 2011.

    Interview Details

    I am writing this to tell you how disappointed, mistreated and frustrated I am over their hiring process. I have given Maple Leaf Foods over eight interviews, two of which lasted over three hours. Also, I made the trip from Hamilton to several different Maple Leaf Foods locations, which included Kitchener and numerous times to Mississauga. Furthermore, I was told I would hear back about the position within 48 hours, then I was told it would be within one to two weeks and then it was over three weeks. This company has wasted too much of my time because I have been giving interviews one after another to this company for over 3 months. If they were not interested in my qualifications they should have let me know after the first interview and not continue to waste my time.

    This is by far the most unprofessional company I have dealt with in terms of the hiring process.

    Interview Details

    I had three interviews. The first one was a behaviour based phone interview. The second interview was with the recruiter at head office. The third interview was with the HR hiring manager. At the end, I didn't get the job, however the interview experience was very positive since all interviews happened on a timely basis and the recruiter clearly communicated all of the steps to me.

    Purchasing Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took a dayinterviewed at Maple Leaf Foods in September 2010.

    Interview Details

    The job was posted on a job board, but I submitted my resume through a MLF employee. I had a 1:1 interview with the recruiter which was a very positive experience. The initial face to face discussion ran over, and we had a follow-up phone discussion after to finish and also to receive tips on interviewing with the hiring manager. Then there was the face to face interview with the hiring manager and their direct manager. I found their questions to be direct and clear. However, I found it difficult to answer at times, as they would not allow me to expand on my answers. I would start my response, and before I could clarify or complete my thought, I would be given a follow up question of "Let me challenge you on this." At the end of the interview the one individual summed up what he felt was his overall impression of me, which I did not believe was accurate. With only 3 minutes to the end of the interview, and with both interviewers not having any additional time, it was difficult to change a perception based on answers that I felt could have been explained better had I been given the oppotunity.
