    The interview process was straight forward and I felt very prepared. The entire interview panel was welcoming and had nothing but good things to say about Wrigley as a company. All associates looked excited to be at work and were passionate about what they do each day.

    Territory Sales Manager Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Wrigley.

    Interview Details

    Although the phone interview was a positive experience, the live panel interview felt like a condescending waste of my time from the start. I was dissuaded from the job for several reasons (all of which were covered in the job description, no secrets), they gave my resume several saccharine compliments which all seemed to lead directly to the question 'why would you want THIS job', and they made me role play my current job - which they admitted knowing nothing about. The panel consisted of a wide-eyed current TSM, doubtless their rockstar with management aspirations; the hiring manager, who couldn't mask his boredom by the end; and an out-of-market manager who really led the condescension with a lot of "I don't get it" looks and responses to my interest in the role. When he asked a behavioral question and I told them I didn't have any relevant previous experience, he tried to tell me my response should be in the format of a situation, a task... - buddy, not my first rodeo. Seemed like on one hand they were saying I was overqualified while on the other hand they were implying this job is above me (it is most certainly not).
    They got their questions off a list with Wrigley branding on it, but didn't ask nearly as many behavioral as I expected. Asked more about my work experience, what-if scenarios and way too many baiting questions about my current boss and job. I'd have preferred not make it past the recruiter if the hiring manager had no intention of taking me seriously. Was relieved in the end I didn't get the offer, as the experience soured me on the company.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Wrigley in January 2014.

    Interview Details

    My interview took place at a career fair and the interview process took three days from start to finish. It was a face-to-face interview with someone in the procurement field (position I was interviewing for) and a talent acquisition manager. I was asked situational and technical questions by the individual in the procurement field and behavior and past experience questions by the acquisition manager. Both of these individuals were very comforting and made me feel very relaxed throughout the interview. They answered all of my questions and painted a very detailed picture about the work culture at Wrigley. After my interview, they kept in contact through email the next 24 hours which was then followed by a phone call. The interviewers were very kind, considerate, and easy to work.

    Interview Details

    The entire interview process with Wrigley was great. The team was very helpful and flexible in terms of the scheduling process. I also really enjoyed the fact that they had the capability to interview via the web using webcams. When looking for a job across country it is always hard trying to coordinate schedules and meetings and this process made it seem like I was right in the office with them. The hiring process was also seamless. The team was able to answer all my questions in a timing and professional manner.

    Senior Systems Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Atlanta, GA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Atlanta, GA
    Application Details

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Wrigley in October 2013.

    Interview Details

    My initial contact with Wrigley was through a recruiting/staffing agency. The agency, like other similar agencies, screened me for qualifications (education, degrees, experience, etc). Once it was determined that I was a great fit for the position at Wrigley, a phone interview was quickly set up for later in the week. My phone interview was with the Director of Engineering & Continuous Improvement. The phone interview centered around my educational background, my previous experience, skill sets, reason for looking for employment, and my overall interest in working for Wrigley. I found the dialogue to be very natural, candid, detailed oriented, informative, but, overall, relatively low stress (I am an extrovert, so what was low stress for me could be perceived as stressful for others, depending on how comfortable one is with conveying one’s strengths and skill sets over the phone). At the conclusion of the phone interview, I asked if the interviewer had any other questions, and, if not, what the next steps were. I received immediate feedback that they would like me to travel for an on-site interview.

    My on-site interview was the following week. I interviewed with approximately 8-10 people (2 at a time) from various functions. The overall on-site interview process was somewhat stressful because of the mixture of questions that were asked. Some questions seemed to center around one’s own agenda (they really didn’t relate to the role, and focused more around what the interviewer did in his/her role, so these questions were a bit puzzling), some focused more on behavioral type questions, and some questions were very role specific. It was a bit exhausting because each session ran into the next one, so I got very little time between interviewers to “regroup”. At the end of the interview day, I met with the hiring manager for a “close-out” meeting. I expressed interest in this position and asked what the next steps were. Their response was direct, and they stated I would know in a few days.

    I was contacted by my recruiting agent a couple of days later (2 to be exact) and was told an offer had been extended. At this point in time, I had a couple of other potential offers on the table and stated I needed 1-2 weeks to communicate a decision—Wrigley accepted that timeframe.

    Interview Questions
    • The most difficult question during the interview was

      “Tell me about a decision that had to be made where your team members didn’t see “eye-to-eye” on, and how did you handle it?”.

      This wasn’t a particularly difficult question to answer based on my background—I pulled from team experiences that I had led in the past, but can see how this could be a tricky question to answer (underlining purpose of this question is to determine if you have a “dictator” approach, if you tend to side with one group, or if you aim to bring your team together in the middle to find a compromising proposition).

    Negotiation Details
    The negotiation phase was a bit uncomfortable, primarily because I worked through a recruiting agency. In the end, I opted to speak directly to the hiring manager and HR department to convey my enthusiasm about the position and opportunity to work for Wrigley, but identified where the “sticking points” were. In the end, because I was a great fit for the position, Wrigley was extremely fair in meeting my needs.
    Note: In hindsight, had I not been a perfect fit for the position, I’m not sure where the final offer would’ve netted out.
