    Interview Details

    They advertised for a manager position, I took the skills tests meant for managers, but when I received an e-mail confirmation of the interview, they switched it with an accountant position. The office is impossible to locate and they don't provide written instructions on how to get there.

    Supply Planning - Team Leader Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Anonymous Employee
    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Heinz in August 2010.

    Interview Details

    1st interview was with HR and Line Manager. Beyond the usual "Talk me through your resume" to start with, there were a number of behavioural questions asked. Although the questions were fairly standard, my answers appeared not to be detailed enough as they kept prodding for more.. My advice to potential candidates would be to brush up on your behavioural interviewing technique, focussing on STAR responses to the examples from your working history..

    Interview Questions
    • Tell me about a time where you had a problem with one of the staff in your team? What was the process you followed and what was the outcome?   Answer Question
    • What has been your greatest work achievement?   Answer Question
