    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at Kraft Foods (Glenview, IL).

    Interview

    About my validation experience with food products. What they were looking for Con: I nearly left because the interview manager had some mix up and I was there for one hour waiting for her. If the interview had went slightly south, then I would have bolted out. Very unprofessional that you can't keep an appointment

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Kraft Foods.

    Interview

    I have only had the pleasure of going through a phone interview at this time, however, the gentleman I spoke with has been one of the most enthusiastic and knowledgeable individuals I have conversed with. His enthusiasm, knowledge of the position, and openness on the organization as a whole, represented Kraft Foods very well. I hope to have an opportunity to proceed to the next step and eventually join the team!

    Interview

    The hiring process was very formal with very little surprises along the way. They basically followed their interview deck that was provided prior to the interview. Make sure you go through the whole deck to find all the questions that you will be asked. Also, make sure to have enough stories that provided evidence of your experience level with regard to leadership, analytics, problem solving, etc. Finally, don't be overwhelmed by the case questions. There is no right answer. They just want to see how you think. Take your time and make sure it is organized

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Kraft Foods in September 2014.

    Interview

    The process took a long time. I initially had a phone interview that was very general. I interviewed on site with 4 groups of managers. They asked a lot of open ended behavioral based questions, "tell me about a time when you had to…" The managers didn't show much emotions during the interview so it was difficult to tell if you were on the right track with your answers.

    Easy Interview

    Interview

    The interview process was fairly easy. I was invited to do a phone interview and then I was asked to fly to Tampa for an interview with three sales leaders back to back. The interview didn't feel like an interview it was more so like a conversation between you and another person that happens to work for the company you want to work with. Its something that was a commonality amongst all of the sales interns from my class.

    Interview Questions

    • There wasn't a difficult or unexpected question but I will say that from my perception if you are a student interested in marketing or sales do not mention marketing. From what I've heard, it is very hard to move from sales to marketing so don't express that interest because you will be deemed the wrong fit.   Answer Question
