    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Pepperidge Farm.

    Interview Details

    Initial phone screen with hiring manager discussing my background, qualifications, the role and the company. Followed the next week by in person interviews with the hiring manager and 2 additional team members in a one day, 3 hour process.

    Interview Questions
    • Pretty standard behavioral questions for the role. Most unexpected (and, in my opinion, most inappropriate) questions "What did your father do for a living?" followed by "and what about mom?"   View Answers (2)

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Pepperidge Farm.

    Interview Details

    I applied through my colleges recruiting site by submitted my resume and then got a notification that I received an interview. I picked my interview spot and then just waited for the day to come. I had to dress business professional. I walked into the room and he handed me a bag of assorted Goldfish and Milano cookies. From there he just asked me about 5 or 6 questions and that was it!

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Pepperidge Farm.

    Interview Details

    very professional process. Pleased with the interviewers and their questions. Basic interview questions. After they asked me questions, they allowed me to ask questions and they spent awhile answering my questions which certainly was appreciative. Great process, hope to hear from them regarding the DSM position.

    Interview Questions
    • Not unexpected but the question, tell me about the time and how you handled an irate customer. Situation, action, and result.   Answer Question

    Associate Marketing Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Stamford, CT
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Stamford, CT
    Application Details

    The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Pepperidge Farm in November 2011.

    Interview Details

    Fairly standard cpg marketing interview questions. Came in for a LONG panel interview day. Met with 7 people for an hour each. Spoke with the a range of people: new products, category managers, brand managers, brand directors, and people currently at the associate level. Overall it was a positive experience, however one director was condescending regarding my choice of business school and due to the fact that I did not have "traditional" (ie kraft, p&g, etc.) cpg experience. In the end they said I was not selected because I did not have product commercialization experience and they had no interest in training me. I suppose they could have saved the $3K they spent on my travel and accommodation (not to mention our time), by simply reading my resume.
