I worked at Dole Packaged Foods part-time (Less than a year)
Good team effort. People go above and beyond to help each other.
Too many temp or part-time employees.
I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Dole Packaged Foods (Westlake Village, Los Angeles, CA) in March 2009.
I worked through a recruiter. He gave me background information on everyone I would be meeting and interviewing with.
The intefview began with a phone screen with the HR representative. Her questions wwere very standard as to my actual qualifications for the job. (current postition description, years in industry, education, years in current position, etc.)
I then had a phone interview with the hiring manager. It was based on my resume, background, and very situational (tell me about a time when . . ., explain your experience at . . . )
I had one more phone interview with a key stakeholder, but not a direct report. Again, the interview was very situational. They also got more into personality and character.
I was then flown out to CA to interview with everyone from the HR manager to the President of the Division.
Negotiations were challenging due tothe economic downturn and a hiring freeze. I was able to negotiate a decent signing bonus but no relocation help.
