    Information Systems Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Smucker.

    Interview Details

    I found out about them through a career fair at a local University. I applied and withing a couple of weeks I received a phone call. I was interviewed over the phone for about 20 minutes. They asked me basic questions about my resume and asked me about my personal values and morals. They then said they would call me within a few weeks. Ten minutes later they called me to schedule and interview. My interview was about a month later, it consisted of about 5 interviewers asking questions. The first interviewer was with HR and she asked the same questions as the phone interview but with more detail. The other four interviewers were senior level employees from throughout the IT department. The questions they asked were mostly scenario based and a few technical questions. I think what they were looking for the most was your energy and willingness to learn, because I know I got a few questions wrong. I was eventually offered a position starting in the Summer, but a few weeks later they called and asked if I could start in the beginning of January instead.

    Interview Questions
    • They asked quite a few technical questions that as a fresh out of school student I was not familiar with. I would suggest brushing up on your technical knowledge before hand.   Answer Question

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Orrville, OH
    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Smucker in May 2014.

    Interview Details

    Smucker wants to be as sure as they can be that you're the right candidate for their organization so their hiring process may be slightly longer than other companies. The initial process to get into Smucker's for me was: Recruiter, Phone Interview, 1:1 interview with several individuals that lasted a 1/2 day. My last internal interview process lasted a month, and I still went through 2 rounds of 1:1 interviews with several individuals.

    Interview Questions
    • No difficult or unexpected questions. All questions have been regarding what I possess today that makes me capable of doing the job I am interviewing for and basically how you deal in different situations.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    I was unable to negotiate anything, but I don't think it's impossible. I think for the right candidate and situation, they will negotiate within reason.
