    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Middleby (Greensboro, NC) in April 2016.

    Interview

    I went through a third-party to preserve confidentiality since there was an incumbent in place. The interview was conducted off-site with the VP of Operations. Overall, the interview was fairly standard, though I wish I were able to view the facility at the time.

    In the end, we both mutually agreed that it wasn't the proper fit at the time. They were looking for someone with more tactical experience as a short-term turnaround artist. (Clean house, radical change, etc. and then turn it over to the next manager) I was looking for a longer-term career move.
