    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Hilmar Cheese Company in January 2011.

    Interview

    I submited an application online and one and half months later HR ask for a interview. I meet with a panel of supervisors consition of Whey Production, Receiving, Processing, and Labratory. The supervisors were very friendly and courtious. The meeting began by each of them introducing themselves and the department they oversee. I was asked to tell them about myself. I touched on key responsiblities that I performed at each of my previous jobs.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    There is no negotiations. The beginning pay rate is 12.35/hr for the first three months and then 13.00/hour after that. Dalhart is a rural town with limited housing. There are no apartments complexes and the rental houses are very expensive (850.00/month) and the house are also very old and deteriated. Therefore, a commute from a nearby town is nesessary. Amarillo, Dumas Stratford, Clovis NM are about 40 miles away in each direction. The fuel consumption is going to be costly.

    Dalhart, Tx was a bad choice to establish a manufacturing company it is very rural and desoliate. The only reason I can think of for build the plant in Dalhart is that the tax rate in Sherman County is lower than in Moore County for industrial property.
