    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.

    Application

    The process took 1 day. I interviewed at JR Simplot (Aberdeen, ID) in January 2011.

    Interview

    i was interviewed by two people. The setting was pretty laid back, with the normal interview questions being asked. The interview was about an hour long, and was less nerve racking than I thought it would be.

    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.

    Straight forward and simple, behavioural questions that were based on your experience, 3 stage interview process with HR, hiring manager and then the head of function. Some technical questions to test subject matter expertise. Quite a friendly environment

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at JR Simplot in May 2011.

    Interview

    Group panel for about 1 hour. Basic behavioral and skills questions. Standard H.R. questions are given because like most posted positions, they already have a candidate in mind. You have to apply to show you are interested in growth, but you won't get the job. Positions are protected for personal interests of upper management so middle management is not very capable or talented.

    Interview Questions

    • Why are you interested in leaving your current position?   Answer Question
    • Discuss a situation when..... How would you handle....   Answer Question

    Product Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at JR Simplot.

    Interview

    Interview process was quite simple as I already knew many of the people within the group from past employer activities with the company. My extensive experience in product management / development was an obvious fit for the position the company was trying to fill. Pay scale was already established and was reasonable so there was not a lot of negotiation on salary necessary..

    Interview Questions

    • None of the questions were difficult or unexpected but again, the position that I was seeking was one that I already had many years of experience and I was already strongly familiar with the product line that the product management position was responsible for managing.   Answer Question

    Master File Specialist Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at JR Simplot in August 2012.

    Interview

    I received a voicemail on a Friday from JRS stating my resume had been received and that the HR person would like just a couple minutes of my time to clarify a few things. When I called back, the "clarification" was a round of 10 questions. Some of which were:

    1. What's your best strength?
    2. What's your weakness?
    3. What's your goal(s) for the future?
    4. What type of management style do you prefer?
    5. What would your current employer say about you as your top assets?
    6. Why are you leaving?
    7. What's your wage requirements?

    The pay range for this job was $12-$15 although I got the impression it would be difficult to get $14 or $15. However, parking is free downtown and the HR person mentioned a benefits package.

    I was told if I was selected for a further interview, they would call, and she emphasized this...it was a little off putting, but other than that the interview was handled professionally and the person was courteous. However, I'm not expecting a call back because my wage requirements were a bit higher, so I will likely be unable to review the process further.
