    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Farmer Bros. (Northlake, IL) in August 2016.

    Interview

    I applied online. Received a phone call from HR in TX to set up a time for an interview at the Northlake office. I was sent an application to bring to the interview. I interviewed with 2 customer service reps then with the hiring manager. The interview seemed to have gone well. I was told I would be contacted by HR in TX but I was never contacted one way or the other regarding my status nearly 2 months ago.
