    Pros

    Its an decent place to work. Managers are nice for the most part. The pay is competitive and easy to live off of.

    Cons

    Management can use some work, company culture is not the greatest, employees are under valued. Very little to no room for personal growth

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Olam (Fresno, CA).

    Interview

    I was very impressed with how the interviews were conducted. We all met at Olam's Fresno headquarters and had a brief information session about the company. After that we had an opportunity to network with each other and then split up for up to eight rounds of 30 minute interviews. We got to interview with people that had to been in our position last year, and were also able to talk to employees from HR and more senior positions in the departments we applied for. Overall it was a great experience
