The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Heinz in March 2011.
Interview Details – 1st interview was a 30 minute interview over the phone (very general, behavioral, and resume-oriented questions). Got an e-mail a week later for 2nd round interviews...traveled to Pittsburgh for 4 back to back 45 minute 1:1 interviews with various employees. All behavioral questions, why Heinz, future goals, etc.
