    Manager of Planning Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Naperville, IL
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Naperville, IL
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3+ weeksinterviewed at ConAgra Foods.

    Interview Details

    Had three separate interviewing sessions before receiving an offer: 1. High Level with HR 2. Hiring Director 3. Multiple face-to-face with other managers and directors.

    I was not given an accurate representation of the job I was offered. Be careful when working for this company, ConAgra is split into multiple divisions, each division has its own work environment. Some are very difficult workloads and some reasonable workloads.

    Interview Questions
    • None - all of them were very fair and straight-forward. No games or silly intelligence tests.   Answer Question

    I did not negotiate, although I am 99% sure I could have negotiated a higher salary.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took a dayinterviewed at ConAgra Foods.

    Interview Details

    3 half hour interviews. All consisted of directors at ConAgra, they are very casual and are dressed in polos and want you to be comfortable. No specific questions about experience they are open to all majors. Very fun time actually, they called the next morning. WARNING it is a hair drug test, which I found to be odd. Other than that very easy process.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Troy, OH
    Application Details

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at ConAgra Foods.

    Interview Details

    The process was pretty standard. Submitted resume, was called for an interview. The interview was not long. He asked pretty standard interview questions, like what you had done in the past, if you had factory experience, etc. Didn't seem like he really cared about the inteview, I had the feeling that as long as I could walk and breath I would have been hired. He did ask if I was willing to accept the starting wage.
