    Quality Assurance Supervisor Interview

    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Land O'Lakes (Saint Joseph, MO (US)) in January 2016.

    Interview

    Standard behavioral based interview questions. They can do group interviews or group one on one interviews. I did a group one on one interview with QA manager, plant manager, HR manager and plant engineer. The interviewers then pool their questions and give a rating; hire or not hire.
    Overall, the interview process was pretty easy. No off the wall questions except what is my totem animal. Not quite sure what that was supposed to gauge, but still pretty easy.
