    Seasonal Operator Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Henderson, NV
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Unilever (Henderson, NV) in June 2016.

    Interview

    I went to the ice cream social and brought my resume. Originally I wanted the machine operator position, but since I didn't have enough experience they said I was better fitted for the operator. About a week later I received a call for a second interview with HR and a floor manager. Then another week after that I got a call and was hired. The whole hiring process was completely done through email, which they send you documents to electronically fill out for the background check. After that they send you info to complete the drug test and electronically fill out your new hire papers.

    So the whole process took about a month because the background checks takes about 2 weeks to complete. Once I started I did orientation for the first 2 days then started working the floor on my 3rd day shadowing for about 2 days.
