    Continuous Improvement Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Tulare, CA
    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Kraft Heinz Company (Tulare, CA) in April 2012.

    Interview

    Used to use situational-based interviewing. DDI's Targeted Selection was the standard across Kraft Foods. "Tell us about a situation in which you......" "What were the actions you took?" "What was the result?" Not sure what the new standard will look like. Things may change given the recent Kraft-Heinz merge.

    Interview Questions

    • Tell us about a time you had to deal with an upset customer (internal or external)? What was the situation? How did you respond? What was the result? (conflict management)   Answer Question

Offers were made the following week

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week. I interviewed at Kraft Heinz Company (Ewing, NJ) in June 2012.

    Interview

    Initial phone interview/screen with the recruiter. She sent my information on to the hiring manager in NJ who set up a phone interview with a Marketing Manager. Phone interview took about 1 hour and was mostly behavioral with one case question. The case question was basically....Imagine you are an ABM for the Chips Ahoy brand. You notice sales/revenue is increasing but your total share of the cookie market is decreasing. How would you explain this apparent contradiction? I think I did okay on the behavioral questions but I bombed this case question.

    Associate Brand Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Declined Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Interview

    The hiring process was very formal with very little surprises along the way. They basically followed their interview deck that was provided prior to the interview. Make sure you go through the whole deck to find all the questions that you will be asked. Also, make sure to have enough stories that provided evidence of your experience level with regard to leadership, analytics, problem solving, etc. Finally, don't be overwhelmed by the case questions. There is no right answer. They just want to see how you think. Take your time and make sure it is organized
