Perdue Interview Questions & Reviews
Getting an Interview
Service One Interview (Neutral Experience; Easy Interview)
I applied through a recruiter and the process took 6 days - interviewed at Perdue in May 2011.
Interview Details – Hiring managers know nothing about IT. False hopes of promotions and pay raises.
Accountant Interview (Neutral Experience; Average Interview)
I applied through a staffing agency and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at Perdue in August 2013.
Interview Details – It was good experience they took 1 hour interview with that row and full technical stuffs and domain knowledge
General Process Team Leader Interview (Positive Experience; Average Interview)
I applied online and the process took 5 days - interviewed at Perdue in February 2013.
Interview Details – Evaluated through both a phone & on site interview. Phone interview was standard; the in-person interview include an overview of operations followed by a series of questions by two existing team leads as well as the manager. The tour itself, of a chicken processing plant was an experience to say the least. While it was a very interesting process, it was also quite graphic, and probably not the best environment for someone used to directly managing people in a retail setting.
Interview Question – Situational questions based on SOPs that I had no prior knowledge of. Answer Question
Reason for Declining – I declined an offer to proceed with the interview steps, as I found after the initial in person interview that I was not interested in this aspect of management.
Team Leader Interview (Positive Experience; Easy Interview)
I applied through college or university and the process took a day - interviewed at Perdue in April 2008.
Interview Details – I spent about 4 hours at the plant. First I was given a tour, then interviewed by middle management and HR. The HR representative told me that he expected I would be offered a job. When I interviewed with upper management, I was offered the job on the spot and told the starting salary. I then returned to HR for more details about benefits.
Interview Question – Why should we hire you and not someone else? Answer Question
Negotiation Details – Negotiate salary. I later found out that there is a wide range of salaries among people at the same level which does not correlate with amount of experience.
Maintenance Interview (Negative Experience; Difficult Interview)
The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Perdue in February 2012.
Interview Details – After applying for the THIRD time, I was finally given an interview. The only reason they interviewed me was that my friend had a "connection" there. As soon as my friend failed background check, they told me NO too. Worst good 'ol boy situation I've ever seen. I was very qualified, and showed energy and self confidence. However, my energy and self-confidence was forgotten when my "connection" couldn't be hired. I left the interviews being complimented on my confidence and energy, but all of a sudden the HR lady said I lacked confidence and energy when my "connection" failed his background check. They said I wasn't a "good personality fit". Bullsh_t. I didn't have the good ol' boy connections.
Interview Question – We won't tell you what is expected of you. Tell us what you can do for us. Hope you can guess correctly. View Answer
H R Generalist Interview (Negative Experience; Difficult Interview)
I applied through a recruiter and the process took a day - interviewed at Perdue in January 2009.
Interview Details – Upon arrival at the facility at 8:00 AM, I was greeted by the H R receptionist, who had me wait for 1 hour until the interviewer was able to see me. I was not impressed-not organized. The interviewer had more on her plate than she could deal with, expense report lost.
Very Easy Interview
General Labor Interview (Positive Experience; Very Easy Interview)
I applied in-person and the process took 2 days - interviewed at Perdue in July 2008.
Interview Details – This is a first process puoultry kill plant. Most positions are suitable for an entry level, non-skilled employee. The application processis completed thru the local employment office, and my interview occurred shortly thereafter. I was hired over five years ago, and there have been come changes since then, not the least of which is the glut of people seeking employment. That being said, not many people are willing to work in a first process kill plant.

Corporate Recruiter Interview (Neutral Experience; Average Interview)
The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Perdue in February 2010.
