Very Easy Interview
I applied online - interviewed at Kellogg Company in February 2014.
Interview Details – Received email for a phone screen. Fairly straight forward review of qualifications, salary, etc. received email for final interview and was told it would be the next week. Waited and no email. Two weeks later received email to schedule final face to face. District manager and two others at interview. Behavioral stuff, no one acknowledged responses, just wrote notes constantly. It was pretty obvious from the other interviewees that I was the oldest person screened for the position and the only female (check off two diversity boxes at once?) Got a strong feeling from the DM that he preferred a young male for the job as he kept talking about how physically demanding it would be. No emphasis on selling, total emphasis on restocking, building displays - the implication being, "do you really have the stamina for this?" Not sure why this is considered sales, sounded more like an order taker and merchandiser. Was told I would need to "roll up my sleeves" and "get down on the floor" to get the job done. Despite the fact that I had extensive stock and inventory experience in the past, did not feel the job description was accurate nor did I want it.
I applied online - interviewed at Kellogg Company in May 2013.
Interview Details – Contacted via email about a phone interview from HR Rep in Michigan. Received the call, and after spending a half-hour talking / interviewing with the HR Rep he asks me for my "elevator pitch". Probably better to ask that kind of question at the beginning of the interview: had a prepared elevator pitch, and stick to it no matter when they ask for it during the interview process. I altered mine to account for all the information that I'd been divulging for the previous half-hour.
Interview Question – Elevator Pitch - after a half-hour I'd already hit all the big highlights of why, what, and where. Answer Question

Interview Details – Upon applying for the sales intern position, I received a call from an HR rep after approximately 3 days. We had an hour long phone interview, and approximately 2 weeks later, I received a call for a follow-up interview at Kellogg's headquarters in Battle Creek, MI. The company arranged flights and hotels for all interviewees to come down the day before the interview. That night we had a meet and greet with the interview panel, as well as other key Kellogg employees. The next morning each candidate was given a interview time slot. My interview consisted of 3 people: 2 of which were recruiters and the 3rd was a zone manager. Approximately 2 weeks later, I received a call with an offer.
