    Talked at campus career fair. Offered interview for the next day. Three interviewers held my interview the following day. The interview was 30 minutes long and consisted mostly of the interviewers looking through my resume and trying to ask questions pertinent to the position. The interviewers were disorganized and made the process very confusing.

    Technician Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Camden, NJ
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeksinterviewed at Campbell Soup Company in March 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied online and 2 weeks later got an email for a phone interview which was scheduled for 2 days later. During the phone interview I was just asked to go over my work history, highlighting the skills that this job entailed, was very quick. Took about another two weeks to get emailed by the HR assistant to schedule an in-person interview for the following week. This is the first time I had been reimbursed for my travel expenses, quite unexpected especially for an entry level position. I met with four people in the group for ~30min., they each had a list of questions for me. Everyone was very nice, enjoyed talking with them. Was told I was the first interviewee and it might take some time to hear back. The following week I got a call from the HR person that they were still interviewing but all the feedback about me was very positive and I should hear back by the end of the next week. By the following Wednesday I called and the day after got an email from HR that I was not selected.

    Overall, I think they have a great HR department. The rejection email I got was very nice and not a template or format email. Would recommend others to apply.

    National Accounts Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Camden, NJ
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Camden, NJ
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Campbell Soup Company in November 2013.

    Interview Details

    Was contacted by a Campbell's recruiter about a position. Had two phone interviews within three days and was invited to Camden for a panel interview. A date approximately three weeks in the future was set. Five days prior to the scheduled interview I had not received any travel information or interview details so I contacted the recruiter to ask if plans had changed. I was told I was still on the schedule and they made travel arrangements.

    Attended an interview that was supposed to include six different people. Three were not in the office so these portions had to take place over the phone. The hiring manager was new to his position and this sector of the business. I was asked several specific questions about accounts in my market but few questions about my own accomplishments and ways of working.

    After spending over $2000 to fly me to Camden for face to face meetings with three people one would think there would be some kind of thank you and follow up on outcome. Surprisingly I never received any contact from the recruiter or hiring manager.
