    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Ventura Foods (Ontario, CA) in April 2016.

    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.

    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.

    Application

    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.

    I had to interview with three people asking me questions. It was a little intimidating since I was not expecting this. Seemed as if they were all asking same thing differently!

    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

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Ventura Foods (Brea, CA) in February 2011.

    Interview

    Phone screen from the recruiter, followed by a 1:1 phone call with senior hiring manager. Background check, and then a scheduled afternoon interview session with 5 personnel.

    Two of the interviewers were very good - great conversation about interaction with the role. One individual needed to be guided in conversation. The senior interviewer went to the older school interview approach, with questions about 'greatest thing you ever did..' and such. Didn't feel too good about that one. The fifth was a great, long conversation about the actual job. At the end of the day, they felt there wasn't a fit.
