    Manufacturing Reliability Site Resource Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Atlanta, GA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Kellogg Company (Atlanta, GA) in December 2016.

    Interview

    1) I was phone screened by the corporate recruiter which lasted 40 minutes. This was about two weeks after I applied.
    2) I was phone interviewed by the hiring manager two days later which took about 1 hour 45 minutes. He was very professional about the position and connected on a personal level as well. I was impressed at this first contact.
    3) I was asked to do a phone interview with the plant operation director, the hiring manager, and the HR manager. I asked for an on-site interview and was granted one three business days later. I also got a plant tour.
    4) I was offered the job the following day.

    Interview

    I met them at the career fair where I talked about myself and asked questions about the company. They were really nice and offered me an interview for the following day. I thought I did really well, because they were saying 'impressive', 'that's really nice', but they never got back to me.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Kellogg Company.

    Interview

    I applied for the position online and heard back from the corporate recruiter within 3 weeks. I had a phone interview with the corporate recruiter that lasted approximately 30 minutes. The recruiter then sent my application to the hiring manager. I was texted approximately one week later by the corporate recruiter to set up a phone interview with the hiring manager. The phone interview with the hiring manager lasted about 30 minutes and I was told that I would be contacted if advanced in the process. The next day the hiring manager asked me to do an in-person/panel interview at the plant. I did the in-person/panel interview the following week and was offered the job the day after the interview.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Kellogg Company (Fargo, ND).

    Interview

    Biggest thing in the interview was whether or not I would be able to catch on to the type of work involved. If I would be able to make it on time to work. Hours were very early morning hours. Start time was anywhere from 1:30am-4:30am.

    Director Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Kalamazoo, MI

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Kellogg Company (Kalamazoo, MI) in December 2017.

    Interview

    Phone screen with a recruiter; then phone screen with hiring manager; then onsite interviews if you make it that far. I didn't have a great experience with their recruiters. They seemed sort of bored, rote, not a great first impression. Also 30 minutes prior to the interview and still no one had emailed me the name of my interviewer or the contact information. When I did have the interview with the hiring manager over the phone it was a nice conversation. (Although I think I scared her away with my salary requirements.) She said that I would hear something from them either way "after the holidays." I never heard anything. From anyone, ever. Now, I get it if I was vastly under-qualified and had wasted her time (and if she hadn't told me that I would hear from them). But that was not the case here. And even if you don't take the time to personally call me back, at least the respect of an email to let me know you've moved on to other candidates?

    I was already a little wary of Kellogg. I've heard bad things about their culture from multiple people who have left (and some who are still stuck there). I was already not convinced the role was for me, just investigating. This just confirmed it for me, that they don't have a culture of people-first and respect. I was on the fence but this helped tremendously--I probably won't apply to another position there.
