    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at JR Simplot (Boise, ID (US)) in January 2020.

    Interview

    One initial screening interview with recruiter, followed by another deeper discussion with recruiter prior to onsite interview being scheduled. Onsite included a 'case study' that required prior preparation and 10-15min delivery during panel interview. Interview panel included hiring manager and next level up, peer to position as well as recruiter. One hour interview included general Q&A, 'case study' presentation and review, as well as a 'STAR' format of questions delivered by panel (Situation, Task, Action, Result).
