    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Sara Lee (Downers Grove, IL) in January 2009.

    Interview

    Applied for an open position. Received an e-mail from a recruiting coordinator to schedule the interviews -- met with three people in the Department. Interviewed with a peer, pretty standard job-related behavioral-based interview; interviewed with the hiring manager (a VP) -- interview was less behavior-based, more tell me about your experience in certain areas -- more fit oriented. Then interviewed with SVP in charge of the group. This interview was definitely fit-related, why choose an internal role (was in consulting before), why was I interested in Sara Lee.

    Negotiation

    Not much room for negotiation.
