    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.

    Production Team Leader Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Russellville, AR
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Russellville, AR
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at ConAgra Foods in August 2013.

    Interview Details

    Had interviewed initially for a Warehouse Team Leader position, then was asked to come in a week later for the Production Team Leader interview, for which I was far less qualified. After a very good interview for the W/H Team Leader position, the internal recruiter asked me about a potential start date and proposed a salary. I asked for a competitive salary (4% higher than what was proposed) that matched the level of compensation at my last job. A few days later, I was asked to come in for an interview for the Prod Team Leader, which was a position I had not applied for, nor was qualified for. The day of my interview, I was scheduled to meet with two people. Both were busy and seemed very disinterested to even have to conduct an interview. Obviously ConAgra had "chosen other candidates", so it wasn't a surprise when the rejection was relayed to me. It was apparent to me that I was setup for failure after not "agreeing" to take the proposed salary initially offered. No feedback was ever offered to me as to why the initial position was changed, even though I asked for it.

    ConAgra uses their own internal recruiters who will contact you, have a phone pre-screen and then invite you on-site for an interview if you pass this pre-screen. On the initial interview, I met with close to 10 staff members and took a plant tour, and was provided lunch.

    Interview Questions
    • Mostly, a lot of behavioral questions, such as "tell me about a difficult situation you faced", or "give me an example of a process that you initiated that saved the company money". Also, be prepared for the "what do you know about ConAgra?", or the "why do you want to work for ConAgra?" which were both asked numerous times.   Answer Question
