    The quality of the product and the production facilities is excellent. Their certification is always high and they strive for higher. The support staff in customer service, billing, invoicing and admin are excellent.


    There are inter-departmental challenges that make getting routine tasks difficult. There are people in key position that are impossible to work with and will make every effort to make others look bad to make themselves look better. Most insiders can tell you who these people are and how to try and work around them.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There is no training other than going to each production and kill facility. They need a process for training new staff even on how to get through internal challenges. You can complete a similar form for 3 different departments during one task, adding hours and repetition to something that should be streamlined. If you don't like a place that thinks, "this is the way we've always done it" then you are not a fit.

    Interview Details

    Foster Farms initially contacted me through email to set up an interview for an SAP position at their Livingston headquarters. I emailed back and was easily able to get a time to get interviewed.

    My interviewer was very nice and easygoing but still kept on track. He asked me many different questions, ranging from my future plans to what some of my technical skills were. Overall, I was very impressed with their interview process.

    Interview Questions
    • He asked me about the Systems Development Life Cycle which I hadn't prepared to talk about. If I would have prepared better, I could have answered the question just fine.   Answer Question
