    I worked at Alabama Farmers Cooperative full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good place to work if your in between jobs.

    Cons

    Hope that you can break into the 'good ole boy' circle or you have no chance of survival.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn cost accounting procedures. There is no real standard way of doing things from a financial perspective. Too difficult to take the temperature of sales and progression. This can easily be set up!

    Safety Manager - Grain Mill Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Alabama Farmers Cooperative in June 2014.

    Interview Details

    Interviewed with the EHS director and assistant EHS director. Both were very pleasant and professional. I got the job lead through EAstern Kentucky University and sent my resume to AFC via email. Got a phone screen - which went well - then was about 1.5 weeks before I was called for an in-person interview. Was very excited but unfortunately the salary range was below what I could take. They were upfront about the salary which saved us both from spending time that would not have a mutually favorable outcome.

    Interview Questions
    • One of the more "old school" interviews - very few of those annoying behavior based questions. More focus on skills and personality match, so I liked that!   Answer Question
    Reasons for Declining

    I got called for an in-person interview, but prior to the interview they were upfront about the salary range since I had a 4+ hour drive to get there. Unfortunately the range was below what I could accept, so I declined the interview. It was a bummer, I was excited about working in agribusiness!
