    Senior Demand Planning Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Parsippany, NJ
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Pinnacle Foods (Parsippany, NJ) in July 2014.

    Interview

    You will receive a phone screen, initial interview, Caliper assessment, follow up interview and an offer if selected. The Talent Acquisition was very helpful in the hiring process and I felt very comfortable with the interview panel. If they are interested you will be kept in the loop during the entire interview process.

    Senior Director Position Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Parsippany, NJ
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Pinnacle Foods (Parsippany, NJ) in July 2014.

    Interview

    Applied online followed by HR phone screen leading to in-person interviews. Interviews with 5 people in one day without any breaks which was a long day - but the conversations were productive. Each person was pleasant and the interviews went well. No feedback for almost 3 weeks then asked to return to meet one other person. Following that - no contact.

    The actual interview process was as expected however, I was incredibly disappointed at the lack of professional courtesy by not informing me of the organization's decision to not move forward with me. I expected a simple one- sentence email, at the very least, to inform me of their decision but it never came. That speaks volumes about the organization!

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Pinnacle Foods in July 2009.

    Interview

    Spent most of the day meeting with all marketing directors, trade spending director, HR manager and EVP Marketing. Followed up with recruiter. Did not receive any clear feedback as to whether the position was ever filled and why I was not a fit. Vaugely discussed not being sure what "weight" the ideal candicate would have.
