    I worked at JR Simplot as an intern (more than an year)


    The management knows what they are doing and it shows.
    The benefits are solid and they treat their employees great.


    The locations of the business are not what I'd call ideal if you're a big city type person.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work.

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at JR Simplot.

    Interview Details

    Initial call from HR followed by a face to face. All that was asked were situational questions in your past. Over the course of a 20 year career it's hard to answer so many of that type of question in a real substantive way. I came prepared for those questions but not for the entire interview. It was a panel interview of 4 people and all they gave were first names not titles. It lasted about 40 mins

J.R. Simplot hopes you'll have fries with that. Potato potentate J. R. "Jack" Simplot simply shook hands with McDonald's pioneer Ray Kroc in the mid-1960s and his company's french fry sales have sizzled ever since.

Simplot produces fruits and vegetables under the RoastWorks and Simplot Classic labels. It owns and operates more than 80,000 acres on over 30 farms located in Idaho, Oregon, and Washington. It produces more than 3.0 billion... More
