    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Foster Farms (Livingston, CA).

    Interview

    I started by sending in my resume to HR, who promptly responded. I had a phone interview with the packaging engineer supervisor and after was called in for in-person interviews and meetings. I had an in-person interview with one of the current packaging engineers and met with a purchasing manager and recruiting manager (who was my main point of contact for the entire applying and interviewing process).

    Overall, the interview process was smooth and accommodating. The process took longer than usual because I was applying for an opening months away.

    Interview Questions

    • Most technical questions were based off my resume. For example, I wrote "familiar with ASTM and ISTA standards", so they asked me "What do you know about ASTM and ISTA standards?"   Answer Question

    SAP Position Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Foster Farms in January 2016.

    Interview

    After schedule the first phone interview Forster Farms rescheduled the interview two times with very short notice. It shows already how the treat applicants. After the interview Forster Farms never call back or provided any information via e-mail. It's almost impossible to reach somebody at Forster Farms via phone or via e-mail. I tried at least 10 times to call them but I only reached the operator and I got never another person direct on the phone. The interview was in January 2016 and there are still "looking" for a person. For me it looks like there are not the right person involved in the hiring process or the SAP manager is afraid to hire an really expert.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Foster Farms (Compton, CA).

    Interview

    Pulled up to the gate. Called and had a guard come open the gate because one walked off when I had pulled up and never came back.

    Did a 20 min interview inside a little shack. Basic questions, was told about the job and typical day at work, my availability, etc.

    They seem to prefer Spanish or bilingual people. One thing I didn't like in particular was how they made it seem like I was gonna get the job.

    One thing I liked was that they were courteous and called me back to tell me that the position was filled.
