    Received interview invitation through on-campus recruiting. Three 30-minute interviews with three strategy employees, one of which was a case. There was the usual mix of fit and behavioral questions. In addition, one of the interviewers asked me to describe an extracurricular in detail. I think they were curious to know more about what made me 'tick'.

    I applied online. I interviewed at Bimbo Bakeries in February 2017.

    Interview

    I had initially met a recruiter at my campus career fair and was told to apply online. I applied online and heard back within 2 weeks and was scheduled for a phone interview. The interview was very casual and it was more about getting know you. The recruiter touched based with me often about where I was in the process. I spoke with a director about 3 weeks after the initial interview and was given an offer almost immediately after our conversation.

    Training Coordinator Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Elkhart, IN (US)
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 6+ months. I interviewed at Bimbo Bakeries (Elkhart, IN (US)) in November 2016.

    Interview

    Short interview, in-part that I was an internal employee. HR Generalist didn't have access to my resume, luckily I brought a copy. Asked about qualifications, intentions and plans to execute if I was given the job. After 3 months, was told the job situation changed to a temporary position. This wasn't something I was able to work around. I stressed that if they got the full time position approval I would still be very interested. About 1 month after that news, a new training coordinator started at the plant, and was given a full-time position after turning down the temporary offer. HR did not see it appropriate to inform me they got approval for the full time position, but had went with a more qualified candidate. I feel disappointed I wasn't worth the time to follow up with or given any feedback from HR. Very blindsided by the entire experience.
