    Production Team Leader Interview

    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

    Manufacturing Associate Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Interview Details

    I got invited onto campus interview, it was all behavioral. I had two interviewers, one who wanted to show his dominance as an engineer. He stared at me bug-eyed and loudly asked me "What right do you have to tell others what to do?" (Think Alex Jones yelling at Piers Morgan about 1776...that voice). He was making fun of the other interviewee's too, which was pretty disrespectful (and starts talking about TV shows during my interview, it's obvious he wasn't interested) - I was the last person they interviewed that day.

    The other guy was nice.

    Campus, phone, panel interview in that order. Panel was a little daunting due to the large amount of people in the room. Be prepared for situational questions. Everything was very open ended. Took about an hour to complete

    Manufacturing Development Program Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Omaha, NE

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at ConAgra Foods.

    Interview Details

    This started with an on campus interview, which went very well. Read up on ConAgra before your interview, it adds talking points and shows you are actually interested. When I interviewed they had just acquired Ralcorp which was huge and made for a very interesting conversation especially in hearing my interviewer's perspective. Following this interview was an onsite interview with a plant. The position was given to someone with more experience, but they pointed me toward another MDP opportunity at one of their other plants and set up a phone interview. This was followed by an onsite interview at said plant, and once again the position was given to someone with more experience. If I had to guess, I'd say they hired from within. Both onsite interviews included plant tours. Overall, it was a very positive learning experience thanks to their HR Supply Chain recruiter who was very helpful in the process. Even though a job did not come of this, they still left to door open and encouraged me to keep applying to opportunities in ConAgra.
