    Senior Compensation Analyst Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at Jack Link's Beef Jerky (Minneapolis, MN) in February 2016.

    Interview

    Several interviews with both recruiter, hiring manager, head of talent, and VP HR. Turned down twice for the position until I was their "preferred candidate". Was told that they were putting together an offer and then asked for my previous compensation. Then nothing happened for several days. After several emails and contacts they told me that I was no longer a candidate.

    Administrative Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Jack Link's Beef Jerky (Minneapolis, MN) in September 2015.

    Interview

    Over a two months process. Applied to position and took a month to respond to my application. I was first put through a phone screen. Two weeks later, I was interviewed by three people at once including HR, Management, and an Executive Assistant. I was then interviewed by an HR manager in a different building. It was another month before I was sent an offer.

    Phone interview was causal and friendly. First three people to interview me in person were fun, energetic, and easy to talk to. HR manager that interviewed me was abrasive and cold. Comments in regards to my education was rude and unprofessional.

    Labeling Interview

    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Jack Link's Beef Jerky.

    Interview

    Phone interview which was easy - all about my background HR seemed kinda meh. Brought in for an in person interview where I met with the person I would have reported to and then the director. All in all I got weird vibes. It is located in a very unusual spot, parking was a nightmare (afternoon interview, Twins game going on) and when I asked the receptionist if they validate parking the look of utter shock and disbelief made me feel uncomfortable. The meeting with the manager was okay - she kept going on and on about how she recently moved from WI to MN for this job. Very little was asked about why I wanted to job, it was, again, talking about my resume, but not in a "tell me about a time" type more"what did you do their?".
    Meeting with the director was a waste of time, he talked about his resume, bragged about the U of M, a lame tattoo he had and how great he is at his job. He then offered me a sample pack of jerky by saying "Here, see what we're about" and while I flipped it over to look at the back he said "Well, but don't eat it". Ummm...weird and again, uncomfortable!
    I never met with HR at all which I found incredibly strange and when I asked when I would hear back they all said they didn't know. After a day passed I reached out via email to HR and they said that they were still interviewing and would "circle back around". Literally 4 weeks after I had a in person interview I got an email back saying the position had been filled. I think I dodged a bullet, too many weird vibes - someone else here said they felt it and it's hard to describe, these people almost have a high brow, presumptuous feel. You're selling jerky, but that doesn't give you the right to be a jerk.

    Marketing Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Jack Link's Beef Jerky (Minneapolis, MN) in February 2015.

    Interview

    HR called to set up the phone interview with the hiring manager. At first, the hiring manager seemed pleasant and amicable, but as the interview progressed, I got this slimy, pompous vibe from him and I didn't like that.

    He made me feel like a liar. Initially, I explained why I'm looking for something else. Later in the interview, when I said that I liked the people I currently work with, he kept pressing and pressing why I'd want to leave them. And I quote, "Wait! You said earlier that you wanted to leave because you weren't using your skills to your potential...and now you're saying you like working with these people? What is it?" (Um. Yes, I can LIKE the people I work with, but if my skills aren't being used to their potential, then it's a completely different issue.) UGH.

    He also made me feel bad about my entire career - he seems to think that I had no career progression from when I held an entry level position until now (I have 17 years of experience). I explained how the field works, and that I had no interest in managing people, hence why I'm not in a management role -- because I don't WANT one. However, once he asked me for my current salary he was silent. Perhaps only then did he understand, as you don't just get to X salary amount by doing lateral moves.

    After I hung up the phone, I KNEW I wouldn't want to work here. One should leave an interview feeling excited about a potential new experience, but this experience made me feel rattled and angry...and now I'll note this company as somewhere I'd never want to work.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Jack Link's Beef Jerky in September 2014.

    Initial communication was through the recruiter. Set up and all the preparation (flight, hotel, transport) all went very smoothly. Interviewed with three sets of people; HR, operations / plant and COO. Questions were standard, tell me about a time when... They were interested in industry knowledge that would apply to the role.
