      Average Interview

      I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Central Garden & Pet (New York, NY) in Sep 2022


      **Important Note: Central uses a different app for their video interviews (not Zoom) so be sure you have it downloaded and ready to go BEFORE your interview** Central was one of the most positive interview experiences I ever had. From the recruiter to the hiring managers everybody is very genuine and kind. It felt more like a coffee chat conversation rather than a cold, corporate interview, which is a very good thing. I only decided to withdraw my application for consideration because I wasn't super interested in the industry. But other than that, this seems like a very ethical company with passionate, smart individuals. They did ask you to complete a project in the later stages of the interview, so be mindful of that.
