    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Saint Petersburg, FL
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Kellogg Company in September 2014.

    Interview Details

    Applied online. Received a call from supervisor approximately 30 days later, and after phone interview, we had a face to face contact and he was very detailed as to what the job entails, and coverage, as well as hours. My decision was very easy, and after the interview, I felt that if you do your job, you will do very well. I am very excited about the opportunity to work for Kellogg's.

    Interview Questions

    Retail Sales Representative Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Kellogg Company in August 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied online and that was followed up by a telephone interview and a face to face interview with a panel of 3. The telephone interview lasted about 10 minutes and I was hardly asked anything on my resume as they were just going over the job responsibilities. The panel interview was not difficult and the questions asked were extremely bland and generic.

    Human Resources Generalist II Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Kellogg Company in June 2014.

    Interview Details

    Formal phone interview just covering the basic overview of background, resume, and ascertaining your decision making process for all job decisions (i.e. is it logical/strategic, although no empathy shown for extenuating circumstances that may interrupt a linear progression in your work history).

    Met all the qualifications and attained high level performances in a HR Generalist role at another Fortune 500 organization with best in class HR practices. Not sure what they are looking for as I have very specific experience that includes food safety management (supply chain, operations, distribution) and training of direct reports on all safety aspects of food preparation.

    Most of the interview solely focused on the "gaps" in my resume that I was forthright in disclosing I suffered an injury that resulted in short-term disability at a previous employer. People are not robots or numbers on a screen, and all extenuating circumstances should be taken into consideration. A reassessment of the organization's stance on Diversity and Inclusion seems appropriate based on the overwhelming emphasis on questions regarding my personal circumstances, which was a bit premature for an initial phone screen.

    Interview Questions
    • Standard overview of background, history, qualifications and how they relate to the job opening. Attempting to explain the difficulties I had to overcome previously, and the extended time taken for the healing process to conclude was meaningless to a large corporation. Any answer would appear unsatisfactory based on the response given upon my disclosure.   Answer Question

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in North Charleston, SC
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 5+ weeksinterviewed at Kellogg Company in June 2014.

    Interview Details

    Very long process. Takes a little more than a month to get to the on site interview. Enjoyed both phone interviews. On site interview was ok as they follow a set order of questions to ask and are always writing things down as you speak. It made it very hard to connect with those you were interviewing with.

    Interview Questions
    • Typical questions. Make sure your examples are tailored to the job you are interviewing for despite your past experiences that fit the criteria of the question.   Answer Question

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Kellogg Company.

    Interview Details

    It was the stupidest interview I've ever done. I had to do a ppt presentation on myself in front of a panel of 3.

    Interview Questions
    • There are lots of redundant questions. Basically written by a college grad with no real work experience. Most of the questions are not about the job duties. The panel of three are reading off a script. The besat question they asked was: What is the biggest problem you have experienced in your previous job and how did you solve it.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    They go by scale depending on work experience.
