Advice to Management
Don't overlook aspiring talent within the company as you seek to fill key positions with "outsiders."
I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Wells' Dairy (Minneapolis, MN) in April 2017.
It was a very long process from beginning to end. I flew to the office in Minneapolis and met with the marketing and trade teams. I was very impressed overall. I was disappointed that I was not reimbursed for my expenses.
