    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Smithfield Foods (Grayson, KY).

    Interview

    They ask all the basic stuff any company does. Then have you sign releases for a background check and a drug test. If you pass those they have you come back for a second interview.
