Very Easy Interview

Supply Chain Analyst Interview

Supply Chain Analyst
Orrville, OH

I applied online and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at Smucker in January 2012.

Interview Details – Half day interview with entire team. Very casual, environment. The interview was with the one over one manager, the manager, and the entire team one person at a time. I felt like i spent a large portion of time reestablishing myself. Each interview person asked the same questions and I lacked the ability to truly establish my relevant background because of the short alloted time with the same basic foundation building questions

Reason for Declining – Low offer

I applied through an employee referral and the process took a day - interviewed at Smucker in February 2011.

Interview Details – The J. M. Smucker company is a very well-known firm. They were offering an internship in HR in their Oxnard, CA plant. The interview went really well, it was behavioral mostly and it was an enjoyable experience.
