    I interviewed through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Smucker.

    Interview Details

    The interview was great, with the interviewers really trying to get to know more about you and how you can fit in the company. They really want to know about skills you have so you can be placed within the company at the right place. The interview isn't a rapid fire of questions, it was more of a conversation.

    Anonymous Employee  in  Orrville, OH
    Anonymous Employee in Orrville, OH
    Application Details

    I interviewed online. 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
