Great Experience as an Intern

Continuous Improvement Intern (Current Employee)
Archbold, OH

I have been working at ConAgra Foods as an intern for less than a year

ProsGreat intern program, Really invested in "selling" you the company and making sure everyone enjoyed their time. Very generous Relocation Package for an internship.

ConsIf you want to work in Continuous improvement you will need plant experience which will require you to live in a more rural area for at least 2 years. Not for everyone.

Advice to Senior ManagementKeep up the good work!

It was a great honor and privilege to work for the team in Waterloo Iowa. Conagra is truly a great company.

Engineering Manager (Former Employee)
Waterloo, IA

I worked at ConAgra Foods full-time for more than 3 years

ProsThe team, the management, the principles, the relationship between management and employee...I can't list everything.

ConsSome aspects towards project management and transfer of a project to operational control need to be ironed out. The process can be seen as clunky at times, but I know that they engineering group is fine tuning the VSU process to eliminate this.

Advice to Senior ManagementContinue to develop the skill sets of the floor employee. Conagra has some truly dedicated employees (we see this every year as we celebrate employees with 40+ years) and they all want to see true success. Don't lose focus on this, it was an honor and a privilege to work with your Waterloo team.

Sales Intern

Sales Intern (Current Employee)
Naperville, IL

I have been working at ConAgra Foods as an intern for less than a year

ProsIt was great to work with an extremely knowledgeable team and to learn a ton about sales and retail effectiveness. The internship was a great experience with many perks and my boss was wonderful.

ConsI didn't love working in the suburbs when the city was so close by. Also, it's a little tough to make new friends because everyone is in their cubicles all day (although ConAgra does make a huge effort for fun work events)

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

I worked at ConAgra Foods as an intern for less than a year

ProsAs an intern at ConAgra Foods, I gained leadership skills, honed my presentation skills, and was able to enjoy my summer in a new city. I was given $4,500 to move to Chicago and my salary eas $1,200 bi-weekly.

ConsI was the first intern for my department and at times everything felt a little disorganized. By the end of the internship everything came together though.

ConAgra is a good company to work for

Business Systems Analyst (Current Employee)
Omaha, NE

I have been working at ConAgra Foods full-time for more than 3 years

ProsCareer opportunities: rotations and training in new areas encouraged but not required if you prefer your area.
Pay/Benefits: The compensation and benefits are good for the area
Flexible work environment: The IT department allows telecommuting one day a week, and has hotel cubes instead of assigned desks so you can move where you sit according to who you are working with. Flexible hours are available to work around things like day care, as long as you work during "core times" you can come into work at 6am or 9am.

ConsThe IT department has been known for having too many irons in the fire. There are plans in place to improve workloads, and it is getting better, but it's still a work in progress.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
