    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Shearer's Foods (Massillon, OH).

    Interview

    Group interview. It was about six hours of going over rules and regulations. At some point they take you to the floor to see how well you can pack. If they want you they will send you off to get drug tested. You're working within a couple of weeks.

    Interview Questions

    • Honestly, one of the things they asked the group that stuck out the most was "Why do you want to work for Shearer's"?   1 Answer

    Corporate Director of Quality Systems Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Akron, OH

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Shearer's Foods (Akron, OH) in May 2016.

    Interview

    Contacted by their in-house HR person who was very nice. Followed up with a phone interview with the hiring manager. Prior to the interview, I did my standard research and after looking at the company its leadership and employee reviews on Glassdoor, I felt the culture would not be a good fit for me so I purposely did not put my best foot forward during the interview process.

    Project Engineer Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Shearer's Foods (Burlington, IA) in December 2015.

    Interview

    Recruiter called and asked if I would be interested in this position. I spoke with the recruiter at length about the opportunity, and then had a phone screen with the hiring manager. They did group interviews with standard behavioral questions. There were 3 different interviewing groups ranging in size from 2-4. Each interview sessions seemed to be a bit short to me (about 30 mins) for the number of people in each session. After everyone was able to ask me a few questions it didn't leave much time for me at the end to ask questions.
