    Human Resources Interview

    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at Pilgrim's Pride (Chattanooga, TN) in September 2016.

    Interview

    Applied with resume given to HR management team. HR Manager performed interview with 2 HR supervisors present. They asked the typical questions that every employer asks during an interview, nothing out of the ordinary, just know that they are looking for answers that revolve around employees come first, strong sense of understanding and compassion for people, being patient, and not acting too quickly prior to analyzing details. After interview, they take you on a plant tour. Next in HR they send for a background check. Takes a few days to complete. Once complete, HR management will schedule you for a drug screen that is conducted on site at plant with the nurse staff. They are extremely unorganized due to HR performing poorly, so get ready to have 3-4 reschedule dates for your drug screen. They will tell you when your start date is, but add 2 additional weeks to that for the actual date.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Pilgrim's Pride (Greeley, CO) in February 2016.

    Interview

    The company found me through my Linked-In account and they immediately wanted an interview. Things moved very fast- company seemed desperate to fill position. After first interview, they immediately said things went well, wanted to schedule a second interview. I said great, let's pick a time. Never heard back. I had to eventually contact HR rep and she rudely said that they filled the position. Very unprofessional in their HR department.
