    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Pepperidge Farm (Norwalk, CT) in March 2014.

    Interview

    I applied to this internship through my colleges job listings site. I was initially contacted by phone and a phone interview was set up. During the phone interview I was given an overview of the position and asked a few generic interview questions. I was then told that Pepperidge Farm would like to invite me to an on-campus interview. During the on-campus interview I was given a problem and asked to write down step-by-step the process I would go through to solve the problem. The problem was to plan a friends birthday party with a number of given constraints. I was then asked a bunch of "What would you do...." and "How would you handle..." questions. Following this interview,I was invited to a team interview at Pepperidge Farm HQ. This part of the interview was more of a formality and meet and greet to ensure that I fit in with everyone.
