    Accounts Payable Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Dania Beach, FL
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Chiquita Brands (Dania Beach, FL) in August 2017.

    Interview

    I received a phone call from a recruiter, and he set me up for an interview with two people from the accounting department. I went to the interview, and I only met 1 of the two people I was supposed to meet. She spoke for an entire hour, and she did not ask me any questions about my experience or anything. Still, she was nice, so I sent her a thank you email. I waited a week to follow up and find out what the result was. Of course, I didn't get the job. I'm not upset at that, I'm more upset that a supposed global company can legally waste people's time like this. It should be illegal. I was barely able to get out of work to come to this interview, because it really meant the world to me to be able to work for Chiquita. But they didn't even ask me questions or take interest in me or my work. They had already decided from way before that I was not a fit and used me as filler. I don't appreciate that at all. I don't expect to be applying to any other positions for this company any time soon, and I would encourage respectable people to value their time. Do not bother applying to this company.

    Interview Questions

    • They only asked me whether I was Hispanic or Russian (illegal much?)   Answer Question

    Business Development Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Chiquita Brands.

    Interview

    Was contacted by HR to discuss opportunity which I would be responsible collaborating with a customer in a particular market segment. The customer was a major player and I had experience working with them before. The person spoke a mile a minute and you can tell she was nervous or inexperienced. And I thought I was nervous? Either way, when I first was reached out to, I didn't get an immediate response for several days.

    Interview Questions

    • Standard questions about background. However a technical question that was not on the job description was asked which I did not meet the qualification. She stopped the interview right there abruptly and said there wasn't a fit. Do you think it would be equally beneficial to the potential employee and interviewer that all critical qualifications be stated in the job description? In the end, I was still very qualified for the position. My opinion is that the HR person didn't have the experience to hire a position that is technical, therefore it hurt both me and Chiquita in the end.   Answer Question
