    I have been working at Green Plains


    Competitive pay. Great vacation days. Overall great management team who will work with you and share advice to make you successful.


    Not many cons. Only con I can think of is management tends to over analyze spending money for various projects.

    Positive Outlook

    Interview Details

    Phone screen~ Let me start this by saying they use your oldest resume in the system not the most current to conduct your interview. If you applied for more than position make sure you clarify which position you are interviewing for because they don't.

    On site interview~ I was 5 minutes early to my interview and was sent to the conference room (where someone was charging there iphone) to meet with two interviewers a EVP and Analyst. Waiting in the conference room having the HR rep come in and out of the room to explain the reasoning for the wait.15 mins later, EVP walks in from apparently impromptu highly important meeting to sit down, tell me a little bit about the company. I give my background and experiences( during which point the EVP, asks if that's my phone charging). Apparently my resume is to difficult for him to understand and then asks me what position I was applying for again.
