    I have been working at Pinnacle Foods as a contractor (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    They EMBRACE Technology and substantially fund it to try new ways of improving operations for the betterment of all. Leadership see all employees as equals across the board. They have a forward vision that can encompass the whole world because the ideal of reinvigorating iconic brands hits home with all people and everybody needs to eat FOOD! Now they need to purchase Waste Management Systems so they can cover the other end.

    Cons

    I honestly cant think of any cons that do not represent themselves in most any facet of production or life for that matter, things have a timeline, food cant last forever, delegations of responsibility to humans, no one is perfect (yet), use your focus to improve and communicate.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep thinking outside of the BOX (as a matter of fact, lets recycle that one too), don't let yourself fall prey to stagnation's in attitude or environments, check in with fellow workers frequently and communicate be your leadership showing all others how you got "it done". That is a ripple in the pond that can go on forever.

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at Pinnacle Foods in January 2015.

    Interview Details

    Standard interview questions without any tricks or surprises. Lack of any feedback / communication post-interview (as mentioned by other reviewers) is a serious opportunity for this company. Multiple attempts to retrieve status updates were ignored by an HR Manager who specifically stated that such information would be provided at the appropriate time.

    Interview Questions
    • No particularly challenging / unexpected questions. "After having read the job posting, what do you see as being the greatest hurdle for yourself as an applicant for the role?"   Answer Question
