    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at AdvancePierre Foods (Cincinnati, OH).

    Interview

    Behavior based interview process, low pressure, need to be able to deal with grey area and limited external data. First call was a phone interview with the external recruiter. Next phase was a phone interview with the hiring manager. Then, in person interviews with the entire team and human resources director.

    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at AdvancePierre Foods.

    Interview

    A bit disjointed to say the least. A hiring manager who thought he was smarter than he actually was conducted the phone screen on his own without taking the "normal" step to vet candidates through HR.

    Rushed immediately in the following week to make a "quick" decision on a candidate as I was one of two people for the job in question. We then sat around for the next month being told that we interviewed well and that holiday timing was to blame when in all actuality nepotism was taking place as a new Vice President brought in a former colleague and offered the position in lieu of us. Whatever!

    During the day of my interview the hiring manager didn't even bother to come into town. Peculiar to say the least. The VP's line of questioning was scattered and disjointed. She tried going off of some consultant's script which I found amusing. She didn't know if she was coming or going. I did meet some nice people including the HR Director who was extremely professional.

    I can only give this an incomplete. Lots of new people and things going on. The question is "Who's on first?"

    I gained a master degree in food safety and technology and BS in food science, and had several years experience in lab environment. When I went through the job description, it requires basic knowledge of food science and a high school diploma. Then they told me that you dont meet our MINIMUM REQUIREMENT through email!That's totally unacceptable and disrespectful! Disappointed!

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at AdvancePierre Foods in July 2016.

    Interview

    I applied for this position and about 4 weeks later I get an email from a person not affiliated with APF to have a phone screening. The phone screening was a total of 7 minutes long and they asked me extremely basic questions such as have I ever worked within a budget and what I did and didn't like about my current job. After these questions the screener told me I was a great fit for the role and would have the APF hiring manager call me by EOD to set up a phone interview as they were looking to move quickly to fill the role. I sent one email to the screener when I hadn't heard anything in a week but no response and never heard from them again.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at AdvancePierre Foods (Cincinnati, OH) in August 2015.

    Interview

    Worst ever, outside recruiter from Columbus, Ga. Did no read my emails, originally contacted me on a Monday about an phone screening, did not get back in touch with me until Thursday morning, the only day I was not availabe which I let her know in my emails, waiting an hour and a half for her to call, finally called her, was rude, abrupt, not the least bit civil, totally unprepared, and tried to be a bully. After talking to her, there was no way I wanted to be a part of that organization. She absolutely nothing about the position. She should be fired. I can only imagine the number of good people losers like her chase away from the company.

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at AdvancePierre Foods in May 2015.

    Interview

    I was contacted by two different people to schedule my initial phone screen. They clearly weren't communicating with one another. The phone screen went very well (it was with a contractor), and I was quickly advanced to the next round. I received a lot of coaching to really learn as much as possible about the company history, etc.

    I had an emergency that caused me to be late for the second phone interview. The manager called once & left a vm which stated he was available for the next 10 min. I didn't make it in time, so I quickly followed up with HR. I felt awful, tried to explain & reschedule, but she was rude and abrupt. She stated the manager called several times which wasn't true. Of course, I didn't argue or mention it was only one time since it was my fault for being late. She didn't respond to my request to reschedule, and in fact I received the automatic rejection email instead.

    Based on this experience I would have had second thoughts about moving forward in the process. HR is the face of the company, so it was a total turnoff. I am not interested in working in a culture of arrogance and rudeness.

    Phone interview followed by an interview with the manage and then a final interview with the VP of logistics. It was a very relaxed environment and got a good vibe from everyone in the company. You need to know your stuff but it was definitely not high pressure at all.
