How long does it take to get hired from start to finish at Valley Proteins? What are the steps along the way?

Not long, employee turnover is high so they are trying to get people in the door as quickly as possible.

There is at least 1 face to face interview, then if that goes well, they'll call you within a week with an offer. Make sure you get them to give you a written offer because otherwise they WILL give you one hourly rate verbally and when you get your first paycheck, you'll find out that they're paying you 50 cents to $1.50 LESS than what they offered you on the phone. You then have to fill out an application and a background check form. The background check seems to take around 2 weeks. Once the background check comes back, if that is clear, they'll have you go for a drug test. They literally told me that I had 45 minutes from the time they called me about the drug test, to actually get it done. I was at work at my former job at the time, so I had to make up an excuse to leave immediately, then go to Valley's plant to get swabbed. I thought that was the extent of it, then I had to drive yet another half hour to go get a urine screen at an urgent care facility. After all of that, it takes Valley about another week or so to get back to you and give you a start date, so you'd be looking at a minimum month to a month and a half to get hired and that's if Valley is in a hurry to bring you on. If they decide to drag their feet, you'd be looking at a couple of months or more.
