    I worked at Associated British Foods full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Good terms and conditions, brilliant peer support, great opportunities to advance, open access of learning and coaching, very paternalistic organisation

    Cons

    Most individuals have been at the company from boy to man so it is quite a difficult environment to get into as everyone knows everyone

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 week - interviewed at Associated British Foods.

    Interview Details

    Applied through recruiter, 2 interviews, online numeric and verbal psychometric assessments.

The role was advertised as being suitable for skilled applicants from any industry background, however I felt my interviewers were looking for knowledge of ways of working within specifically FMCG, Food, which I did not have.
