    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took a week. I interviewed at Big Heart Pet Brands (Pittsburgh, PA) in June 2015.

    Interview

    I was contacted by their hiring agency, Medix Staffing Solutions, after I applied to a position through a job board website. They were trying to fast track the interview process because the hiring manager was preparing for maternity leave. I was brought in for a preliminary interview with the staffing company, and received a phone call the next day to schedule an interview with the hiring manager at Big Heart. My interview at Big Heart lasted about 2.5 hours, and I was able to walk around with the manager and meet some current employees and take a tour of the quality control lab. I received a call back from them about three days later saying that I was hired and I started working there the following week. So overall the process was very quick.

Roughly a month later I was called to do an in-plant interview with a 15 or so others where we had to fill out an applications and completed panel style interviews with production management. Interview questions concentrated on background, adaptations, availability and work scenarios.

    A week later I received another phone call to come in with a few select others to participate in a plant tour and interview with HR and a production manager which focused mainly on more what if scenarios, how you handle overtime and why you should be hired among others.
