Kraft Foods – Why Work For Us?

Our Mission
"Our aim is to be North America's best food and beverage company, and we'll get there by continuing to offer products consumers love, creating a performance-based culture that motivates and excites employees and becoming the best investment in the industry."

- Kraft CEO Tony Vernon

Kraft Foods Group is one of the largest food and beverage companies in North America with annual revenues of more than $18 billion.  With the spirit of a startup and the soul of a powerhouse, we are on a mission to be the best food and beverage company in North America.  We have a deep portfolio of beloved food & beverage brands in the beverage, cheese, refrigerated meals and grocery categories.  Our products can be found in the pantries and refrigerators of virtually every household in the United States and Canada.

We expect to be well-positioned over the long term to deliver steady, reliable growth with a strong focus on cash flow to fund a highly competitive dividend and reinvestment in our people, innovation and brand-building.







Our Workplace

At Kraft, we’ve always been a company of makers.  And now, 110 years after we started, we are re-making ourselves. We’re just at the beginning of our journey to become North America’s favorite food and beverage company – one with the spirit of a startup and the soul of a powerhouse. 

We’re re-making our culture at Kraft.  But no matter how much we change, some things will remain the same.  We will treat all employees with the respect they deserve.  We will provide them with a safe workplace.  And we will inspire them to do great things.  Because we know that, every day, our success depends upon the 23,000 talented, dedicated and diverse people of Kraft.

Mixing in Wellness

Healthy employees are engaged and productive. So it's no surprise that to grow a successful business you need a healthy workforce. That's why we encourage and support our employees in having healthier lifestyles. We offer various health and well-being tools at our facilities, including  programs focused on nutritional, physical and mental well-being. Here are just a few ways we're helping our employees lead healthier lives:

  • Lifestyle improvement programs, such as stress management, weight management and smoking cessation
  • Fitness and/or sports facilities onsite, incentives for gym membership reimbursement and employee sports competitions
  • Health screenings and exams, including vaccinations and flu shots
  • Healthier options and nutrition information in our cafeterias and canteens
  • Health newsletters/intranet sites that offer health tips and work-life/flex time programs

People and Diversity

We're open and inclusive. It's a simple concept. Being open and inclusive is critical to creating a great work experience for our employees and business partners. And it's the foundation of our strategy to build our new culture. 

Reflecting the face of our consumers in our employees – and especially in our leaders – also is critical to our success. Different perspectives help us see first-hand how we can better meet consumer needs with innovative and delicious foods. 

It's how we do business

Open and inclusive is woven into how we do business every day – from training and development to accountability in leadership objectives:

  • We offer diversity and inclusion training focused on sustaining a culture that welcomes and values individual differences. 
  • We develop strategic relationships with external organizations to connect with a broad range of consumers and attract diverse talent to bring a wider spectrum of perspectives to our business. 
  • We link diversity and inclusion to executive incentive compensation to increase our leaders' accountability. 
  • We're committed to supplier diversity 
  • We look beyond our four walls to work effectively with suppliers that reflect the makeup of the communities where we live and work. That's why we've had a strong supplier diversity policy for more than 25 years. To help advance our supplier diversity efforts, we offer a supplier registration portal for certified minority- and women-owned vendors. 

Our open and inclusive culture drives success – for our consumers, our shareholders, our business partners and our people.

Veterans at Kraft

Step inside Kraft and you'll meet veterans working in every area of our business - applying the skills they learned in the military, and developing a whole range of new ones too. In fact, we currently have over 900 people with armed forces backgrounds on the team here. And by 2014, we're aiming to double the number of veteran hires we made in 2012.

Why so many? Well, partly because we're proud to offer quality careers to men and women who've served our country. But there's also a strong business reason: we've found that veterans make a huge contribution to our work. They bring new ideas, make excellent colleagues, and play a key role in driving our business forward.

You might assume that the military and Kraft are very different organizations. But beneath the surface there's actually a lot we have in common. Just take a look at our values, for example. We think you'll recognize a shared mindset:

  • Win together: we succeed as a team, with the entire company performing as one.
  • Inspire trust: we always have each other's back, but we believe in real autonomy too.
  • Make tough choices: we do what's necessary to ensure success today and tomorrow.
  • Keep it simple: hey, why make things more complicated than they need to be?

Military benefits

We're proud to have been recently named “Best for Vets 2013” by Military Times. We've worked hard to create an environment where people with an armed forces background feel welcomed, valued and supported. Below, you'll find just some of the ways we do that:

Paid military leave

We offer up to 15 days of paid military leave for full-time and part-time employees who are members of the National Guard or active reservists of the Federal Armed Forces.


Re-employment after military service

When you return from military service, you'll be entitled to rejoin us in the same position. You'll also be able to re-enter at the same point and same pay level if you had been with us continuously.

Employee Assistance Program

Veterans often face unique challenges as they transition back to civilian life. Our Employee Assistance Program offers free and confidential telephone counseling at any time of the day or night.

    Average Interview


    I applied online. I interviewed at Kraft Foods.


    It was a fairly typical interview process. First was a phone interview with HR. Then an onsite interview with several people in the group that was hiring. A second round of on site interviews with more senior management.
