    I have been working at Russell Stover full-time

    Pros

    Iconic American brands (Russell Stover and Whitman's) of chocolate candy now owned by the premier world-wide marketer of chocolate (Lindt & Sprungli). Headquarters is located in the heart of Kansas Ctiy, MO.

    Cons

    There is a lot of positive change going on in the business since less than a year has transpired since the company's sale to Lindt & Sprungli. Everyone must be patient as the company adopts and excels al the new business processes!

    Advice to Management

    Stay focused on great tasting candies at affordable prices! Let American consumers know about the breadth and quality of your products.

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Russell Stover (Kansas City, MO) in January 2015.

    Interview

    I was briefly interviewed by the position's department manager, then a longer conversation with the position's immediate supervisor followed up by two different teams of three people each within the department (people who work closely with this position) whereupon they asked varied questions regarding my background, experience, education and overall familiarity with the industry.
