    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.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Kellogg Company.

    Interview

    Went through majority of the interview process only to find out that the applicant must still be enrolled in classes. Did not work out because I was graduating within the month. Would have appreciated not wasting time -- as my graduation date was written on my resume.

    Middle Management Position Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Kellogg Company in May 2017.

    Interview

    The Process:
    Applied online and two weeks later had a phone screen with a talent acquisition manager. One week later had a phone interview with the hiring manager and his staff. Two weeks later was an in-person panel interview with the hiring manager and his staff.

    The phone screenings were rather formalities that basically just confirmed things on my resume. However, the in-person panel interviews were a bit tougher behavior (tell me about a time when) questions.

    The process went smoothly until its conclusion. It felt like the in-person interview went great. The team and I seemed to hit it off and I was taken on a very thorough tour. It even went so far as the hiring manager and one of the staff members making living arrangement/relocation suggestions immediately after the interview. However, three weeks went by and there was not a single bit of communication after the interview. Despite multiple attempts to follow-up with the headquarters HR contacts that were given to me, I received absolutely no feedback. I'm not even sure if I'll be getting my related travel expenses reimbursed. Not the conclusion I come to expect from a Fortune 500 with as much history as Kellogg...

    Customer Contract Assistant Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ weeks. I interviewed at Kellogg Company (La Palma, CA) in May 2017.

    Interview

    I applied online and was contacted via email to schedule a phone interview with the recruiter however, when I got the call I interviewed via phone with two recruiters that went well. Final phase I had the in person panel interview with three people where they asked Behavioral questions - was advised they would make a decision by the end of business however, I never heard back from this employer. I was advised I would hear back even if they decided to go internal -which makes me think this employer just met an internal policy of interviewing me to meet internal policy guidelines. I was more than qualified for this role so I won't take it personal you will find that some businesses do this however, this is frustrating for candidates that are eagerly seeking employment. I also made one attempt in emailing the recruiter with no response.

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Kellogg Company (Battle Creek, MI) in May 2017.

    Interview

    1st round is HR personnel screening that lasted about 20 minutes and all practical behavioral questions. I was told i'm " on the list" for second round with the hiring manager, then after i did 3 follow ups over the 2.5 weeks after the initial interview I was told "oh you were emailed last week but guess you didnt read it, we're going with someone else." To place the blame on the candidate for their lack of follow-up contact is utterly unprofessional and unnecessary.
