    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took a dayinterviewed at Cadbury (Parsippany, NJ) in April 2007.

    Interview

    Four hour interview consisting of 5 private one on one interviews with several of the managers, directors and VP of the group. Very friendly staff, although 1 or 2 of the directors did try to make the experience a little uncomfortable, by asking ridiculous hypothetical questions.

    A good personality will take you a long way during this interview process, they are obviously looking for competent employees that stand out but will choose the person that can dazzle a bit.

    The pay is excellent and the atmosphere can be beat. Really amazing environment and people, although finance and procurement can be a bit uptight, the rest of the company is quite laid back.

    Application

    The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Cadbury (Toronto, ON (Canada)) in October 2009.

    Interview

    The initial interview was with two representatives from the company - a marketing manager and someone from HR. They started off the interview by asking me to go over my experiences. After that, came a series of behavioural questions. The questions were all very specific - "tell me a time when you had to work with an uncooperative group member and how you changed his/her view." The interview ended with them asking me what brand I think has a good marketing campaign.

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Cadbury (Vellore (India)) in March 2009.

    Interview

    I was intimated with this offer by a staffing agency and I was interviewed through phone by the recruiting company firstly.Later I was called for an 1:1 interview by the regional manager of Cocoa Operations Department, Cadbury India Ltd. Then I was directed to the second level of the interview which was conducted by the Vice President of Cocoa operations, Cadbury India Ltd. He conducted IQ test, personality and Background check tests to recruit me to this company. In none of the stages, i was enquired about cocoa or about my degree. I was enquired only with current datas and general knowledge about agriculture.

    Negotiation

    At the last phase of my interview I was little nervous because Vice President's questions were at the peak. I could able to answer 1 or 2 in that and finally when he asked me to share my experience, I told him this. Even you recruit me or not, I had learnt something from this interview. Firstly, courage to face any kind of interview after this. secondly confidence to express the right answers in the right time and keep mum for the unknown questions. These words were the turning points for me to serve that company for one year which I came to know when I received an appreciation letter from the same person after completing my probationary period.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Cadbury in October 2008.

    Interview

    The interviewing process is very lengthy, almost to the point where one thinks you've been forgotten. The recruiter conducted an initial "screening" interview which lasted longer than 2 hours. This was followed several weeks later by a panel interview with the plant general manager and the human resources manager. It was apparent at the time that the two individuals from the plant had very different philosophies on how business should be conducted and this persisted throughout the rest of my time with the company.
    The third and last interview was with the regional general manager - not sure of the correct job title. This was the general manager's direct boss. The need for the third interview seemed to indicate a lack of trust in the decisions made by the plant GM - this also seemed to persist through the remainder of my time with the company.

    Application

    The process took a dayinterviewed at Cadbury (Barcelona (Spain)) in February 2008.

    Interview

    How it normally works is that you need to take intelligence test with a HHRR consulting company and once you pass them you get an interview with the HHRR Manager and then with the Director of the department you apply for.
    The interviews are background based. No tricky questions at all. It's talking about what you have done in the past and what are the goals you have in the upcoming 5 years. Then they normally ask why you want to work in Cadbury. Here is interesting to know what are the brand they have in the portfolio and explain that they have worldwide leader brands and so. After talking about the company and about you, if you like them they will start negotiation phase and that's all

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Cadbury in August 2007.

    Interview

    I was informed about the position via headhunter agency. My first contact was the HR representative of the company followed by some IQ and behavioral tests. Afterwards, I was introduced to the Marketing Director and Category Controller in the following steps.
    Overall it was a long lasting (due to summer) process including lots of tests and stress based interview questions. But HR was kind and reachable whenever I had questions on the process.
