    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at John Sanfilippo & Son (Elgin, IL) in October 2015.

    Interview

    If they know you, you will have a good chance of landing the job because you can learn the job quickly if you are there everyday. The jobs that I'm talking about that apply this process is the one i mention above.

    For higher positions I've heard that it's the actual owners will be one conducting the interviews and it takes weeks for the interview with a lunch day with the low level supervisors.

    Interview Questions

    • -How do you see your self fit in this job description?
      -How do can you help the team?
