    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.

    • 1) How have I worked with folks in the past.
      2) What advice would I give to the company regarding patented technology which they would like access to.

    Marketing Manager Interview

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at JR Simplot (Othello, WA) in March 2013.

    Interview

    I networked before the interview to find out more about the position and how strong of a candidate I might be for this position. One thing led to another and I was put in touch with the corporate Marketing Director. He was very helpful and encouraging and continued to encourage me for other positions even after I was not chosen for this position. I have been very impressed with many of our company's executives. As it turned out, I did not have the experience the hiring manager was looking for when I interviewed.
