    Finance Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Northbrook, IL
    Anonymous Employee in Northbrook, IL
    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Kraft North America in September 2012.

    Interview Details

    I received a voicemail from a recruiter to schedule an interview. I returned the recruiter's call and she scheduled me for a telephone interview. I received a call on my day to interview from a different interview apologizing for my original interviewer not being able to interview.

    The interviewer asked me a few standard interview questions. She mentioned my original interviewer would contact me if she has any further questions. I asked her when should I expect a follow-up call. She mentioned that the process normally takes 2-3 weeks.

    I called my original interview after 3 weeks past for the status of my application. She mentioned that the hiring manager move on with two top candidates.

    Interview Questions
    • All of the questions were standard interview questions. However, the interviewer did mention that the person selected for the position would have to travel weekly to NY until the end of the year. I agreed to those terms although travel wasn't mentioned in the job posting. I'm not sure what to make of that.   Answer Question
