    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 8 weeksinterviewed at Kraft Foods (Glenview, IL) in April 2014.

    Interview

    I had uploaded my resume into Kraft's system and was contacted by an internal recruiter. I had a 20 minute phone call with the Kraft recruiter, followed by a call with the hiring manager, and an on-site interview with about 7 different people. All questions were behavioral and each person was given a scripted set of questions. As long as you have several stories from your work history- both good and bad- and can answer the questions in STAR format you will be just fine. My process took longer because I am coming from another state.

    Interview Questions

    • Describe a time when you had to find a new solution to an old problem.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    No negotiation. I was happy with what I was given.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at Kraft Foods.

    Interview

    Talked to them at a career fair and got the schedule to interview call later that day. They use the behavioral STAR method. Just make sure you have a few stories in your mind that you can quickly think of and relate to most situations. The people I spoke with were very nice and pretty easy to talk to.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Kraft Foods (Chicago, IL) in March 2014.

    Interview

    i applied through linkedin. i was contacted by a recruiter with an extremely annoying voice. she spoke extremely slow. and did i mention she was annoying? anyway, i made it through the interview but she did mention my salary was rather high.
    i was extremely surprised (as was she, apparently by the tone of her voice) when i was passed on to the next step which was speaking with the hiring manager. i nailed that part of the interview too, so i was on a plane out to the corporate headquarters which, upon arriving, was a deliberate and blatant attempt to mimic googles campus..
      kraft currently is a disorganized mess. the HR folks didnt even know my hiring manager was a female and she had the audacity to argue with me about it until the she (the hiring manager) literally walked in! i this pretty much was the tone of the whole interview. people were ridiculously late, disorganized etc. i could go on and on. you can tell they are under a major company reorganization. i dont know who or what locations the current employees are at who are giving this place a "thumbs up." it is complete chaos. another thing they dont tell you. they reimburse your cash expenses with CREDIT. that's right, CREDIT. they give you credit cards. they fail to mention that up front.
    i still havent heard from them. either way its been two weeks so im going to say that i didnt make the cut. oh, i forget to mention that the final interview with the corporate HR went tike this "..OH MY. your salary is really high!" you flew me all the way out here and just now are realizing this? like i said, a complete train wreck.
