    Interview

    Met recruiter at Job Fair in college. Traveled to Corp Headquarters in Austin, Mn. for job interview. Interview was easy, The interviewers put on their best face. Would have preferred to visit with normal production supervisors to get their input and views about working at Hormel. Maybe the picture painted by the interviewer would be different than the actual details given.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Hormel (Austin, MN) in January 2014.

    Interview

    You will first fill out an online application and follow up with a phone interview. The phone interview is based of questions that will tell them if it is worth their time to pay for you to travel to the corporate office "Austin Mn". If you are offered a visit to the corporate office you will spend the day interviewing with 6 or so different individual that are higher up in the company. 4 of mine were vice presidents. It is very important to be relaxed and relate to your interviewer as much as possible. Do not just sit there and wait to be asked a question, keep the conversation going.

    Interview Questions

    • In the next 60 seconds or less tell me why I should walk down the hallway and tell the Vice President of human resources to hire you.   1 Answer

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Hormel (Austin, MN) in May 2011.

    Interview

    I initially applied online and about 5 months later got an email to fill out their official online application and submit a copy of my transcripts. I did the online app and got an email about 2 days later to set up a phone interview for later that same week. That phone interview was pretty easy and included the recruiter explaining the nature of the position and asking three fairly standard behavioral based questions. She was incredibly friendly and at the end of the call let me know that if I was moved on to the next step, I would be invited out to Minnesota for all day interviews. I got a phone call just over a week later letting me know I'd been invited out for interviews and to contact them to make my travel arrangements.

    My interview day was scheduled for 2 weeks after I called them to set up travel plans. I got to MN late on night, interviewed all day the next day and flew home that same night. The interview day consisted of meeting with about 6 different corporate people, touring their plant and a brief meeting with the recruiter I spoke with on the phone. I felt like I had interesting conversations with everyone I met with, though I must note, I'm a younger female and I definitely got the vibe that it's a male dominant company. Almost everyone I met with during the day have been with the company 20+ years and I think they were all from the mid-west (they all asked how I felt about relocating from California one day and I think they weren't convinced it wasn't an issue). I thought the day went pretty well, but I did get asked "what's your management style," which is a difficult question to answer when I'm straight out of college and haven't really had time to establish a "management style".

    I got an email about a week following my interview letting me know I wouldn't be offered a position. I think they were looking for someone with a more agressive/dominant personality and if I had any advice to offer to others interviewing for this position, definitely make it known that you have a strategy for dealing with managing people who are a.) older than you b.) set in their ways or c.) union employees.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Hormel in July 2012.

    Interview

    The first contact was a phone interview, followed by an in person interview with 3 people at a local plant. This was later followed by a trip to the Hormel Foods headquarters in Austin, MN. This trip consisted of 5 interviews, a lunch meeting, and a plant tour. The interviews consisted of direct questtions about my qualifications and a couple behavioral questions. The company made me feel at home and it was truly a pleasant experience. Hormel's human resources department is outstanding. Interview results were always given within 2 business days.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    The company presented a very generous offer which took into account the unique aspects of my candidacy. A counter offer was not needed, as their offer was above average with several additional perks. Even though the compensation offer was quite generous, I did turn down some higher paying opportunities to accept Hormel's offer.
