    Senior SAP Systems Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Omaha, NE
    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Conagra Brands (Omaha, NE) in April 2012.

    Interview

    HR was really good way back when I started but the team and senior leadership interviews were very misleading as they made you feel like you weren't answering any questions properly. Very unprofessional.

    Interview Questions

    Senior Systems Analyst Interview

    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Conagra Brands (Omaha, NE) in March 2013.

    Interview

    Long process. No sense of urgency.Impression was that they had lots of candidates and really didn't care. I had a referral from an employee but it was still a very long process. I almost thought it was worse that I had an employee referral than if I had been a cold call.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Conagra Brands in August 2009.

    Interview

    The hiring process was very extensive I had 4 interviews- the final being a panel interview of five people. They utilized the STAR method. Each question you had to integrate your Situation, Task, Action, Result- all had to be incorporated into your answer.
    Background check was thorough. Here are examples of two questions:
    Give me a specific example of a time when a co-worker criticized your work in front of others. How did you respond? How has that event shaped the way you communicate with others?

    Interview Questions

    • Tell me about a time when you failed to meet a deadline. What things did you fail to do? What were the
      repercussions? What did you learn?

    Reasons for Declining

    Bait and switch, applied for one job and then told that position was filled but if I'd like to relocate I could accept a similar position elsewhere. No thanks.
