    Team Leader Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Ogden, UT
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Ogden, UT
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at ConAgra Foods in February 2014.

    Interview Details

    Applied online and was contacted the next day by Human Resource, scheduled an interview for a couple days later. First step of the interview was a Wonderlic test. Then a skills test to ensure you can copy numbers down accurately. The HR rep told me my Wonderlic score was the highest she had ever heard of before showing me to a room where I was interviewed my a non-hiring manager (hiring manager was busy) and 2 Team Leaders. Nothing too exciting about the interview, they looked at my resume and asked questions from it. Interview lasted longer than I expected. Afterwards I asked the HR rep how long it would be until they made a decision and was told it would be a week or so. I waited 2 weeks to call back and was told they were still deciding. I called back after another week and was told the same thing. Never did get a call.

    Production Team Leader Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Russellville, AR

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at ConAgra Foods in August 2013.

    Interview Details

    Had interviewed initially for a Warehouse Team Leader position, then was asked to come in a week later for the Production Team Leader interview, for which I was far less qualified. After a very good interview for the W/H Team Leader position, the internal recruiter asked me about a potential start date and proposed a salary. I asked for a competitive salary (4% higher than what was proposed) that matched the level of compensation at my last job. A few days later, I was asked to come in for an interview for the Prod Team Leader, which was a position I had not applied for, nor was qualified for. The day of my interview, I was scheduled to meet with two people. Both were busy and seemed very disinterested to even have to conduct an interview. Obviously ConAgra had "chosen other candidates", so it wasn't a surprise when the rejection was relayed to me. It was apparent to me that I was setup for failure after not "agreeing" to take the proposed salary initially offered. No feedback was ever offered to me as to why the initial position was changed, even though I asked for it.

    ConAgra uses their own internal recruiters who will contact you, have a phone pre-screen and then invite you on-site for an interview if you pass this pre-screen. On the initial interview, I met with close to 10 staff members and took a plant tour, and was provided lunch.

    Interview Questions
    • Mostly, a lot of behavioral questions, such as "tell me about a difficult situation you faced", or "give me an example of a process that you initiated that saved the company money". Also, be prepared for the "what do you know about ConAgra?", or the "why do you want to work for ConAgra?" which were both asked numerous times.   Answer Question

    Manufacturing Associate Interview

    Interview Details

    I got invited onto campus interview, it was all behavioral. I had two interviewers, one who wanted to show his dominance as an engineer. He stared at me bug-eyed and loudly asked me "What right do you have to tell others what to do?" (Think Alex Jones yelling at Piers Morgan about 1776...that voice). He was making fun of the other interviewee's too, which was pretty disrespectful (and starts talking about TV shows during my interview, it's obvious he wasn't interested) - I was the last person they interviewed that day.

    The other guy was nice.
