    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. I interviewed at Ventura Foods (Midwest City, OK) in May 2016.

    Interview

    In person interview arranged by third party. Met manager I would be reporting to in person. Was the first time I had spoken to someone. Questions in the interview led me to believe the job I was interviewing for wasn't the job that I had been described. I ultimately took myself out of the running.

    Interview

    Interview was very comfortable in setting. Friendly staff and very honest when it came to benefits. A entry qualification quiz was issued with a time limit of one hour. The quiz was quite difficult in nature. So a study guide was given to review and retake the quiz when ready.

    Production Technician Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 days. I interviewed at Ventura Foods (Saint Joseph, MO) in April 2015.

    Interview

    Applied online and received a call a few days later to schedule an interview.

    I got there 10 minutes early. Signed in and sat down only to wait twenty minutes after the scheduled time until I was finally told I could head back.

    There were two people in the room. They both were friendly and good with conversation. Asked basic behavioral questions but a few of them seemed a bit redundant. This lasted about 25 minutes or so. I was told I would be contacted a week later with an update.

    I sent a thank you email to one of the HR people, but never received a reply. I didn't expect to get one, but it would have been nice to at least get the call I was told I would get a week later.

    All in all, decent interview, but I wouldn't work for this company even if they decided to randomly call me back one day. Both interviewers were going on about the family oriented atmosphere at the company, but I have my doubts. If you aren't professional enough to notify candidates when you say you are going to or to even take a moment to step out and let the candidate know when the interview is going to start, then you probably don't care too much for people in general. I understand you're busy people, but really? It only takes a few minutes to send out an email.

    Just my two cents. At least the receptionist was nice and offered me water.

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Ventura Foods.

    Interview

    All panel interviews. There is really only one guy in the room that matters during the interview and he will decide if you get the job. He will also be the most difficult to deal with if you do get the job.

    Interview

    Pretty standard interview. Quick and rather painless. Nothing that is really out of the ordinary here. Just make sure you are prepared with your forklift license and a drivers license as well. I believe it's new policy to have both of those but it could just be rumor
