    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Sonoco Products (Hartsville, SC) in December 2017.

    Interview

    I was contacted by a recruiter a month after submitting an application and I had a phone interview. Two weeks after the phone interview, I was asked to do a formal round table interview with the department supervisors. Two weeks after the formal interview, I was asked to have a lunch interview with a few current employees. A week later, Sonoco offered me a job.

    Interview

    The hiring process was brief. I think it was just a phone call if I remember correctly. It didn't take me very long. I am not sure if this is an accurate representation of the hiring process, though.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Sonoco Products (Hartsville, SC) in February 2015.

    Interview

    Started with video Async interview (one-sided which was a little awkward), they flew me out to headquarters a few days later with rental car and nice hotel accommodations. Had a full day of interviews with multiple different people including going to lunch and interviewing with the VP, and I found out I was hired 3 days later. Very speedy process and everyone made me feel very welcome!
