    Pros

    Great products and talented people to work with. Friendly culture and good emphasis on work life balance.

    Cons

    During my 2 years at Fonterra, the company went through permanent restructuring. This unstable environment was not conducive to long-term project planning.

    Operations Team Interview

    Positive Experience

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Fonterra.

    Interview

    Interview process took about a month. Was very relaxed and more of a conversation than questions being asked by the hiring managers. Found through a head hunter and had a pre-screening interview with them, which then moved onto a phone interview with the person that I would be working for. After that had 1 face to face interview with my boss and another team member.

    Interview Questions

    • Pretty standard interview questions, strengths, weaknesses, challenges, opportunities, etc.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Fonterra is very generous so didn't need to negotiate
