    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.

    Associate Director Interview

    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.

    Interview Questions

    • All behavioral questions from the HR screening: "tell me about a time when you have difficult stakeholders that you have to convince"   Answer Question

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Kellogg Company (Battle Creek, MI).

    Interview

    I applied online, after initial application, it requested that I complete a personality inventory. It was very basic. A few weeks later, I had a phone screening. I was called by a recruiter, in which they had very specific questions to ask. A few weeks after the phone screening, I was called for a follow up phone interview with the person who is over seeing the intern. About a week after the phone interview, I was scheduled for an person interview with the same manager, and two of their colleagues. It was very formal, they also had a list of questions in which they asked. Mostly critical incidents. They had said they use to make interns do a formal presentations, but they have since done away with that. A few days later, the initial recruiter called and extended an offer
