    I have been working at Hormel full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Lots of exposure to executives and responsibility at a young age. Stable company without a lot of turnover so you never feel scared to lose your job when the economy dips.

    Cons

    Old school, traditional culture with a few outdated systems and processes. Corporate office is in a small, rural town in the Midwest. Lots of relocation required for advancement

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Hormel.

    Interview Details

    After submitting an application online, contacted a few weeks later to do a phone screening. A week after that you are contacted to come to the corporate office for a day of interviewing, all expenses paid. You have 4-5 interviews including an informal lunch interview as well as a Plant tour. Everyone was very friendly.
