    I worked at Florida's Natural full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    I worked for the staffing company so the pay was minimum wage. They pretty much accept anyone willing to work. Beneficial to a person needing a job asap. If you work DIRECTLY for the company then they start you $13 + an hour with great benefits.

    Cons

    Working for the staffing company (PHR) they will treat you like a slave for the entire 12 hours (6pm-6am). Also required to clean for two hours prior to the shift ending. (You have to use high pressure water hoses and shovels, EVERYONE except managment goes home soaking wet EVERY single night.) They can really careless about you (no exaggeration) and will not hesitate to terminate you for whatever reason. I got fed up after 3 months and walked off and quit, ZERO professionalism from management as they will cuss you out for minor mistakes... Earning $7.93 a hour for being someone's slave and being treated like kaka was not worth it

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    GET RID OF THE POOR STAFFING COMPANY. This company was voted the best place to work in the county but the staffing company really waters the workforce down.

    Research Laboratory Technician Interview

    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Florida's Natural in September 2013.

    Interview Details

    This company makes you apply in person. You can attach your resume, or email your resume, but you still must go in person and basically rewrite your resume onto their application. About ten days later, I got a call and had 2 interviews set up, 30 minutes apart. The first was with the HR manager, the 2nd with the dept supervisor where the position was.

    Interview Questions
    • The HR director, Joe Swanson, called me into his office and asked me these questions, and wrote while I responded.
      Why are you the best candidate for this job?
      What experience do you have that relates to this job?
      What is your best quality?
      What is your biggest weakness?
      What did you dislike about your last job that you hope is different here?
      What type of person do you dislike working with?
      What has been your biggest achievement at work?
      Do you have any near-future goals?
      There were others, but the questions were all similar. After this first interview, the lab supervisor came and got me, and we went to the lab. He showed me around, then we sat and talked for about 30 minutes. He asked about my experience in chemistry, and we spent the rest of the time talking about the day to day operations there. I asked when the final decision would be made, and he said 3 or 4 weeks. I never heard back, even though I was more than qualified. It wasn't an ideal job, so no big deal.
