    Quality Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Blackfoot, ID
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview


    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Basic American Foods (Blackfoot, ID) in May 2015.


    The first interview was a Skype interview with the recruiting specialist from HR. After the Skype interview, I was contacted by an HR manager about participating in a follow up phone interview with potential supervisors and co-workers and the HR manager. Once this phase was complete and I passed I was brought in for an on site interview. I showed up to the interview location and met two other candidates competing for the same position. We each had three separate in person interviews with three different panels. However, we interviewed with the different groups at different times. To finish up the process they had us give a presentation about a particular topic.
