    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Arla Foods.

    Interview

    I didn't have an interview. I just talked briefly with human resources over the phone. The questions were pretty standard. They just want positive, hardworking people. We mostly talked about when I was available to work and go through the orientation process.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Arla Foods.

    Interview

    I met with the team leaders for about an hour where they told me about the position and the team and asked the typical interview questions. A few days later, I was called back to take part in the second round, which was another hour or so that included what would be my main supervisor and a member of HR. Prior to the second interview, I was asked to complete some general employment tests and make a short presentation of my interpretation of their values. The second interview had a bigger focus on the company as a whole rather than just the team, like the first one.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Arla Foods (Aarhus (Denmark)) in April 2016.

    Interview

    Arla Foods impressed me with its very professional recruitment process. There were around 600 application for around 10 position
    - 1st round: CV. I guess you should focus on your international experience and leadership skills
    - 2nd round: Aptitude Test. Arla used Cubik Test. You will have total 12 minutes to answers 24 verbal questions, 16 numerical question, and 10 abstract question (4 minutes each). Time flies so you need to concentrate and do quick as much as you can.
    - 3rd round: Skype-HR Interview.
    You will talk with a HR representative for around 30-45 minutes. The questions are competency-based, they would like to know more about you, around CV and experience example.
    - 4th round: Assessment Center.
    If you pass all the previous round and receive an email of invitation to this round, then congratulation! Before the day you will receive a link of Hogan Personality test (around 250 questions). Then on the day, you will meed other candidates and current F15 graduates (24 candidates for the final round). The day starts with a company introduction, following with a group case of 6 and 2 individual interviews (1 with a senior manager & a HR, 1 discussing about your Hogan test). You should focus on Arla value and fit yourself to the organisation. It is very important.

    Head Office Role Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Arla Foods (Leeds, England (UK)) in August 2015.

    Interview

    The first stage was a telephone interview from HR which was fairly informal to gauge my suitability and ask about my CV and experience.

    This was followed by a series of online tests - numerical and logic. Some of the questions weren't that straight forward and I think this was the most difficult part of the whole process.

    Then had a first interview with prospective manager. This again was fairly informal as it was mostly discussing my experience and suitability to the role.

    I then had to complete an online personality test. Some of the questions were slightly odd but I didn't see any of the results.

    The final stage was a competency based interview with presentation. The presentation was to be prepared within the interview time.
