Very Easy Interview

Senior Analyst, Strategic Planning Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
Louisville, KY

I applied through a recruiter and 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.

Interview Question – Walk me through why you want this job.   Answer Question
