Advice to Management
Don't overlook aspiring talent within the company as you seek to fill key positions with "outsiders."
I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Wells' Dairy (Minneapolis, MN) in March 2016.
I had an initial phone screening, which did not consist of a lot of questions and was more just an overview of the company. When I went in for an interview, I was asked a series of the typical behavioral questions. The interview was fairly casual, no case questions.
