    Sealer Operating Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Rice Lake, WI
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at McCain Foods (Rice Lake, WI) in January 2017.

    Interview

    Didn't get a interview because they already have the top three people they had picked out already even though I had experience. They need to interview every single person that has applied for a position rather then pick and choose who they want.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at McCain Foods (Niles, IL) in September 2015.

    Interview

    I was contacted for a phone screen, which lasted about an hour. The interviewer was engaging and asked relevant questions. I was brought in for a second in person interview which was with 2 employees from the HR department. The interviewers were also engaging, asked mostly behavioral based and previous experience questions. I was called back for a 1:1 interview with the director of HR. This was also an enjoyable interview. All the employees seemed interested and down to earth, explaining the functions of the position with a realistic viewpoint. I was contacted with in 2 weeks for the final decision.

    Marketing Director Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Lisle, IL
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at McCain Foods (Lisle, IL) in January 2015.

    Interview

    Following a phone screen, I had an in-person panel interview, including behavioral behavioral interview questions, as well as a case study that I'd received in advanced. While this interview was a structured format, it was still a fairly informal dialog. While the team used structured questions, the culture was much less formal. Following a successful panel interview, I also had two very informal meetings with senior leaders that were conversational and seemed more intended to determine cultural fit. I had the impression that they were wanting to provide an opportunity for me to interview them, as well as them interviewing me. It was a positive experience.
