    Quality Assurance Supervisor Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Land O'Lakes (Saint Joseph, MO) in January 2016.

    Interview

    Standard behavioral based interview questions. They can do group interviews or group one on one interviews. I did a group one on one interview with QA manager, plant manager, HR manager and plant engineer. The interviewers then pool their questions and give a rating; hire or not hire.
    Overall, the interview process was pretty easy. No off the wall questions except what is my totem animal. Not quite sure what that was supposed to gauge, but still pretty easy.

    Programmer/Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Land O'Lakes.

    Interview

    actually had two recruiters that submitted my resume, back in 2001. That made it hard but it worked out. I interviewed and had the job by the end of the week. The programming skills I had were in very short demand, so I think they were quite happy to find me. I don't think my experience is quite the normal any more, with things taking more time and interviewing with more people.

    Negotiation

    I got an offer that was just a bit more than I had been making. Was unemployed at the time, and was happy to get offer. Asked for an extra week of vacation and got it.
