    Maintenance Technician Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Omaha, NE
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Tyson Foods (Omaha, NE).

    Interview

    The interview was set up quickly but HR seemed very unorganized. The hiring manager seemed to hold a snarky tone and made my interest in the company vanish. They were doing lots of hiring and I didn't feel confident that they understood themselves why they had a hiring surge

    Maintenance Technician Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Zeeland, MI
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Tyson Foods (Zeeland, MI) in April 2017.

    Interview

    Simple interview. They ask about you previous experience and questions relating to your job. They wanted to know what maintenance experience I had and how it could apply to the job I was applying to. You get a tour of the plant because a lot of people think its different than what it really is and they want to make sure its a good fit.

And SS card ready or any other documents saying your name. Got hired after interview and filled out paperwork. 🤓

    3 step hiring process
    Phone Interview
    In Person
    Job Offer. The staff is very knowlagable so they want you to know your stuff. They weed out the bad candidates during the interview process. All in all I would rate the interview process as average. Although they did ask some pretty difficult technical questions. Questions that would be hard for any candidate coming straight out of college to answer correctly.
