What is the primary factor that separates JBS USA products from other meat producers?
You may hear this question in a few forms, such as:

- Why do you want to work at JBS USA?
- Why work for JBS USA as opposed to our competitors?
- What does JBS USA do better than anyone else?

The hiring authority wants to hear a genuine and well-researched answer. Interviewers too often hear bland answers that are general and non-specific. You are a stand-out candidate, and it's time that you show off the considerable research you have performed on their organization. Dig deep to figure out what it really would mean to you to work for JBS USA versus their competitors. You can focus on their product quality, their core values, or their employee happiness and tenure for starters.

Rachelle's Answer #1
"I want to join a company for the long term. This desire is why I did a lot of research on JBS USA and your competitors before applying. What I appreciate most is the care and research that you put into your products before introducing them to consumers. This approach has resulted in fewer recalls and better consumer reviews overall. I am seeking out an organization that acts as more than just a meat producer, but also an industry leader."
Rachelle's Answer #2
"Before applying to JBS USA I performed extensive research on the organization as well as your three largest competitors worldwide. Your employee reviews are solid, and on Glassdoor, the CEO approval rating is higher than anyone else. These results show me that your culture is healthy and this starts from the top. The trickle-down impact means happy customers which is another significant factor for me as I consider my next career move."

What does CPG stand for? Do you have experience working in the CPG industry?
The interviewer is checking for your understanding of simple terms related to the meat production and food industry. CPG stands for Consumer Packaged Goods. Various items fall into the CPG category, but for the most part, we reserve the term for things that consumers use regularly. CPG products can include food, beverage, even clothing, and household products. Determine how JBS USA falls into the CPG category and then be prepared to explain what you understand CPG to mean. Next, take a few moments to walk the interviewer through your experience in the CPG industry. Outline the products you have worked with, and inside of which companies. If you are new to your career, be sure to show a solid understanding of the industry while expressing your keen interest in learning more about CPG at JBS USA.

Rachelle's Answer #1
"CPG stands for Consumer Packaged Goods and refers to many items that consumers use daily. I have worked in the CPG industry for the past eight years, first within the clothing and textiles industry with Company ABC and then moving into food and beverage with Company XYZ. I much prefer working within the food and beverage industry because of the fast pace and exciting food trends that I get to be a part of."
Rachelle's Answer #2
"I have researched CPG before interviewing at JBS USA today, knowing that knowledge of Consumer Packaged Goods industry would be helpful in the interview process. I have worked in a retail environment surrounded by CPGs, such as my time with ABC Grocery and XYZ Clothing. I understand consumer packaged goods to be items that people use every day, such as food, clothing, and personal care items."

I learned in business school that the best way to approach a new prospect is with a clear qualifying statement and value proposition. I would first identify the products that this particular retailer would need. Then, I would clearly outline how these products would benefit their business. Next, I would mention the retailer's pain points and position your products as a solution."
