    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at ConAgra Foods in March 2015.

    Interview

    I applied online and received a phone call about a week later from a company recruiter to set up a phone interview. Had a 30 min interview with the recruiter with general interview questions. Called me about a week later to ask me to interview on site. I interviewed with the hiring manager and a few co workers which ended up being a 4 hour process. All had general interview questions and were very informative about the position I was interviewing for.

    I received a phone call about a week later with the offer. It was a strong offer so I did not negotiate. Overall it was a good interview experience!

    There was an on campus interview consisting of two parts. The first part consisted of meeting with two representatives from ConAgra from the HR department. It was a lot of behavior based questions and questions about my past experience. The second part was much of the same, but with two people from the IT department. It was very friendly, a lot of just getting to know you and seeing if you would fit in with the team.

    Intern Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at ConAgra Foods.

    Interview

    Focused heavily on behavior and situational questions. The interview was structured into two mini interviews within 30 minutes. The first portion was with two employees and it began with basic questions then it went into more in depth about my interests and skills. The second portion was also with another two employees which asked a lot of behavioral questions. The interviewers ask a lot of questions so be prepared with an example of a challenging time or a situation you had to be a leader in mind that would work for answering a variety of questions.
