I applied online and the process took 2 months - interviewed at Heinz in September 2013.
Interview Details – The first 2 interviews were by phone with the controller. He was very nice and helpful. My final interview was in person with 4 different people - Factory Manager, HR Manager, Controller and Accounting Manager. I did that in mid Sept and was hired the end of October and started the middle of November - so not a short process.
Interview Question – Questions were not to unusual - what can you do for us? Why would you want to come here? Answer Question
I applied online and the process took 10 months - interviewed at Heinz in June 2013.
Interview Details – Initial communication was submitting resume on website...this is required. Received follow up call. Took a long time (several months) to schedule interviews. Interviewed with 5 people, all in one day. Six months went by, heard nothing. Finally they called and offered me a position, different that the one I interviewed for. The hiring process is very different from working at Heinz. The hiring process gives one a very negative view of Heinz, but working there is a positive experience.
Interview Question – What would you be doing if you weren't working in this field? Answer Question
Negotiation Details – I accepted initial offer and did not attempt to negotiate.
I applied online and the process took 3 months - interviewed at Heinz in April 2013.
Interview Details – Applied online and received and email in about 2 weeks inviting me down to Pittsburgh for an in person interview. The HR rep in charge of getting everything set up was very personable and bubbly, but was absolutely terrible communicating. Emails from her came at 6:15pm, 10:00pm and were delayed by several days at some points. The paid for a hotel stay and also promised that they would reimburse any travel expenses (mileage, parking, etc.). There was a meet & greet the night before the interview, and then a series of interviews the next day. The interview was around 4 hours long, where I spent approximately 50 minutes with 4 different interviewers. There were approximately 40 candidates and they were only hiring 3. After the interview all of the interviewing candidates were told they would hear back in 2-3 weeks. Well, 7 WEEKS later they finally sent out the email later. I followed up with the recruiter after not hearing anything for 3 weeks and politely asked about the status of the position and never once heard anything back until 7 weeks after the interview. Oh, and they also told us that we would receive reimbursement for our expenses within 10 business days...it has been over 50 days now and not even an apology for the delay or any word on when we will receive that either. Overall, it is very easy for me to say that I will never consider a position with Heinz again.

Interview Details – First interview is on campus with a recruiter. Took about 25-30 minutes, a lot of time available to ask questions.

Unsure whether or not I'll be contacted again.
