    I worked at Alabama Farmers Cooperative full-time (More than 3 years)


    I worked in the office mainly. Operates 8-5pm Mon-Fri. Sometimes needed to leave on Sunday to make it to various retail locations. Great work relationship with outside departments. Great benefits, 1 week vacation 1st year, 2nd year 2 weeks, 5 years 3 weeks. Sick time rolls over. Pay increases almost every year. Generally 3%. Newly renovated office, adequate computer equipment. The Computer guys were great. Christian environment.


    Some communication issues interdepartmental. As with any office job you will find cliques. Not easy to move up in the company. Beyond small office issues, no complaints.

    Advice to Management

    Keep on Keeping on.

    Safety Manager - Grain Mill Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Decatur, AL
    Declined Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview


    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Alabama Farmers Cooperative (Decatur, AL) in June 2014.


    Interviewed with the EHS director and assistant EHS director. Both were very pleasant and professional. I got the job lead through EAstern Kentucky University and sent my resume to AFC via email. Got a phone screen - which went well - then was about 1.5 weeks before I was called for an in-person interview. Was very excited but unfortunately the salary range was below what I could take. They were upfront about the salary which saved us both from spending time that would not have a mutually favorable outcome.

    Interview Questions

    • One of the more "old school" interviews - very few of those annoying behavior based questions. More focus on skills and personality match, so I liked that!   Answer Question

    Reasons for Declining

    I got called for an in-person interview, but prior to the interview they were upfront about the salary range since I had a 4+ hour drive to get there. Unfortunately the range was below what I could accept, so I declined the interview. It was a bummer, I was excited about working in agribusiness!
