Senior Analyst, Strategic Planning Interview

Senior Analyst, Strategic Planning
Louisville, KY

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 3 days - interviewed at Yum! in January 2014.

Interview Details – I was contacted via LinkedIn by an internal recruiter. I had a phone interview and went over the usual interview questions like why Yum, tell me about yourself, why are you a good fit, etc. After answering these, I asked her about the hiring manager for this position as I did have more experience and more projects under my belt compared to this individual. Her response you ask? "Yum managers are a cut above all others in the country while on paper this person doesn't have as much experience they do however have a more powerful career and career track than where you." After this I ended the interview. Not saying that Yum isn't a great place but this interview left me with a bad impression. I'm sure others have had a way better experience. I wouldn't mind speaking with them in the future about a position just not with that recruiter.

Interview Question – Walk me through why you want this job.   Answer Question

Team Member Interview

Team Member

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Yum! in September 2013.

Interview Details – I applied online , which then lead to an email saying my application was successful and I would be hearing from the store which I applied too. Two days later I received a call from the RGM of the store I applied to , Informing me that I had an interview 3 days later. I then went for the interview which was very informal , more like a conversation with the RGM which I suppose was just to get a feel for what sort of character you were then I was asked which days I was available to work and how soon I could start.After ending the conversation , The RGM said he would contact me regardless of whether or not I was successful. Then I got a call 2 days later saying that my interview was successful and that I had the job and that I should bring in some documents to organize how I will be paid.

Interview Question – None , as I was very prepared.   Answer Question

Public Affairs Intern In Louisville, KY Interview

Public Affairs Intern In Louisville, KY

I applied online and the process took 4 weeks - interviewed at Yum! in May 2012.

Interview Details – I am from the city that I applied for the intern position in, and they preferred to Skype for the initial interview. The Skype interview was followed by three in-person interviews, each 45 minutes as well as a 45 minute tour of the building. The corporate headquarters is a beautiful building with a lot of amenities - gym in the basement, food court (KFC, Taco Bell, Pizza Hut, salad bar, deli, etc.), and daycare. Everyone was very nice and extremely friendly.

The interviews felt more like conversations than your typical interview(s). I was taken into a conference room where I talked to each interviewer, who had a list of questions in front of them. Some of the questions overlapped, as some interviewers would ask the same question as the previous interviewer. They are definitely looking for certain answers and to make sure you will fit in with their culture.

I sent a thank you email following the interviews. I was told I would find out early the following week if I got the position. By the end of the week, I hadn't heard and sent another follow-up/reminder email. They wanted the intern to start in the beginning of June and it is currently June 4th. I have yet to hear from them, it has been almost three weeks since the in-person interviews and I expected to hear back within the week after I interviewed.
