    Product Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Bentonville, AR
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Bentonville, AR
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at Tyson Foods.

    Interview Details

    thorough process, but do not be fooled, the process is designed well, not the interview teams
    this is a company that was 24 hours from bankrupt 6 years ago. Many of the midlevel managers are not developed anywhere except Tyson. Make sure you carefully interview them as they interview you.
    Do not look for the sophistication or education or talent you might experience from other 40 Billion dollar companies. This company has grown through acquisition not genius of sales and marketing.

    Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Springdale, AR
    Anonymous Employee in Springdale, AR
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Tyson Foods in April 2010.

    Interview Details

    Interview consisted of three phases-- first was a phone interview, second a dinner with one person with whom I would be working, and then finally a four hour group interview. Talked a lot about the company culture and made it clear that working long hours (more than 40 a week) was the norm, not the exception. One interviewer said something like, sometimes it will be slow and you'll only work 9 hour days.

    Interview Questions
    Reasons for Declining

    First, the salary they offered was comical-- half of what I was willing to accept. They acted as if I was asking for something unheard of when I told them what I wanted. Second, the hours seemed awful. Working hard is great, but living your life only at work is not great. As long as you get your work done you should be allowed to leave on time.
