    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at JR Simplot (Boise, ID) in July 2017.

    Interview

    I was contacted by email by the hiring manager and another interviewer. Then a phone interview was scheduled; it was a typical phone interview with the usual questions: describe your work history, how'd you hear about the position etc... Then I was contacted again by the staff for an in person interview, and that used the STAR interview style, and the emphasis was more on team fit than anything else, but there was a portion of the interview where I was asked to do some simple math problems.

    Digital Delivery Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Boise, ID
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at JR Simplot (Boise, ID) in May 2017.

    Interview

    Started with a couple phone interviews that were just behavioral questions. Then moved onto a 30 in person interview to meet some of the team and go over resume details and more behavioral/slightly technical questions. It was very straightforward and they responded to any questions quickly most of the time

    There might be a tech interview normally, but as the team had recently been formed at the time, it was just kind of combined with the in person.

    Patent Agent Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Boise, ID
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at JR Simplot (Boise, ID).

    Interview

    Started with a 15 minute phone interview with HR, then a 1 hour phone interview with the hiring manager. Subsequent invitation for an onsite interview where the primary aspect was a six person panel asking me questions.

    During the interview process, I was promised by the hiring manager that my complete compensation would not be less than my previous work. A job offer was extended, it was about 7% less. After sharing details of the compensation and benefits package differences, the company abruptly pulled their offer, quite frankly in a rude manner. An excuse was fabricated about the reasoning.

    Research Technician Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6+ weeks. I interviewed at JR Simplot in May 2016.

    Interview

    First, I had a phone interview. It lasted about 20 minutes and was just a lot of general questions asked by an HR employee. She has little knowledge of the actual job and did not even work at the same location. Then, a few weeks later, they called me for an "in person" interview. It was a group of 4 people at a different location as well. They asked the basic interview questions, "where do you see yourself in 5-10 years" "why do you want to work here" etc. She promised to let me know by the end of the week. As I left, I saw the next interviewee waiting his turn. She did, in fact, call. To my surprise, as most places say they will and never do. But she called and said they chose someone from within the company. Later that day, I saw that the re-posted the position. So, I guess they just didn't like anyone they originally interviewed but didn't want to say that. Weird. Anyway, I probably wasted enough time and energy interviewing at Simplot (3 interviews total in the last month), so I will focus on other companies.

    Management Trainee Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at JR Simplot in April 2016.

    Interview

    Applied through their website. Had a phone interview a week later (early march). After passing the phone interview I then was asked to come on site (early April). Arrived 15 minutes before the interview and no one was there to tell me where to go it was an empty room except for some chairs. The HR manager showed up through the front door 5 minutes before my interview and had to get the panel together so the interview started 10 minutes late. Finally after the interview I was given a deadline when they would reach out. They date was suppose to by mid April but they extended it to early May. They then extended it one more time and did not let know until I had reached out to them. Overall very disappointing.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at JR Simplot.

    Interview

    Talked with 2 individuals on the phone. Interview process is pleasant, casual talk. I matched their job description, they like my resume/experience and attitude, but did not move me forward. It makes me question if they meant what they said.
