    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 6 weeksinterviewed at Hill's Pet Nutrition.

    Interview Details

    One word - STAR interview process. Expect to spend at least half a day on site answering the same types of questions from multiple interviewers. Usually you will have a telephone interview first. Study the STAR method and be prepared with a variety of examples. Be as concise as possible to have the best chance of being offered a position.

    Negotiation Details
    Generally, the negotiation phase can take months. Just because you don't hear anything right away doesn't mean you are necessarily out of the running.

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a dayinterviewed at Hill's Pet Nutrition in July 2011.

    Interview Details

    Flew into a different city and met with two VPs, one from HR and the other from research. Interviews were typical generic style interviews, "What have you done", "describe a time when..." but no real competency based interviewing and no case study or behavioural work. Interviews lasted a total of about 4 hours though, so comprehensive review of my experiences.

    People were very kind and office looked clean and neat, but not particularly crowded.

    Application Details

    The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Hill's Pet Nutrition in May 2011.

    Interview Details

    Typical interview experience for a marketing position. Initial interview was a phone screen with HR, then one on one on site interviews a few weeks later. Interviews were with the person I would be replacing, the hiring manager and other directors from the department. The interviews were very professional and were about my experience and how that would translate to the work required from the position. Typical behavioral interviews.

    Interview Details

    Very nice to fly out and picked up by a driver in the middle of winter. Drove to the PNC site and met with five interviewers. Had lunch. Wasn't allowed to tour the facility or lab that I was going to work in but I insisted and they allowed me. Thought at was strange.

    Negotiation Details
    It was like a sales pitch. Hiring manager was from sales. I asked for salary and benefits in writing.
