    Anonymous Employee
    Anonymous Employee
    Application Details

    I interviewed through a recruiter. The process took a day - interviewed at Pinnacle Foods in July 2009.

    Interview Details

    Spent most of the day meeting with all marketing directors, trade spending director, HR manager and EVP Marketing. Followed up with recruiter. Did not receive any clear feedback as to whether the position was ever filled and why I was not a fit. Vaugely discussed not being sure what "weight" the ideal candicate would have.
