    Senior Analyst, Strategic Planning Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Louisville, KY
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Louisville, KY
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 days - interviewed at Yum! in January 2014.

    Interview Details

    I was contacted via LinkedIn by an internal recruiter. I had a phone interview and went over the usual interview questions like why Yum, tell me about yourself, why are you a good fit, etc. After answering these, I asked her about the hiring manager for this position as I did have more experience and more projects under my belt compared to this individual. Her response you ask? "Yum managers are a cut above all others in the country while on paper this person doesn't have as much experience they do however have a more powerful career and career track than where you." After this I ended the interview. Not saying that Yum isn't a great place but this interview left me with a bad impression. I'm sure others have had a way better experience. I wouldn't mind speaking with them in the future about a position just not with that recruiter.

    I applied through other source. The process took 12 months - interviewed at Yum! in July 2013.

    Interview Details

    The interview process was a bit rigorous; there were many questions asked.
    Between 30 to 50 I believe. Some scenarios were given to see how you'd handle a situation. "Are you an honest person?" "Give an example of a time in which you've been honest"
