    Environmental Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Tetra Pak in April 2016.

    Interview

    Evening phone call from HR representative. We did not discuss the position at all, he simply was only interested in my salary history. When questioned why he was so bent on getting my salary information, he provided contradictory answers. Stated that this information would not be used to determine future compensation, but then went on a tangent about how he hires all the time but never for a position like this and they haven't established a salary range. Refused to process my application further without salary history and even became hostile and clearly agitated that I would not provide. Repeatedly turned it around on me, telling me "haven't you ever filled out a job application before, this is required". Continued to emphasize that this was absolutely required and I was ridiculous for not providing.

    The guy was a jerk and I quite frankly wish I had hung up on him. Thankfully he helped me dodge that bullet.

    Event Manager Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6+ weeks. I interviewed at Tetra Pak (Dallas, TX) in April 2014.

    Interview

    So, after the initial screening - 5 simple questions about qualifications - I was passed on to the recruiter. She set up 5 different times to call me and missed every single one. After 3 weeks of phone tag, she finally called me 3 hours after our last scheduled time. After a 45 min phone interview with her, she proceeded to inform me that she would pass on my information to the hiring manager and I would receive an email the following day.
    After two weeks of not hearing from her, I proceeded to contact the original recruiter with my concerns, he was promoted to another position and informed me that he would pass my information to the head recruiter for the position. It has now been a month and I have not heard back.

    Not sure if it's the recruiting company or the specific recruiter, but there is some serious disconnect there.

    Brand Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chicago, IL
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Tetra Pak (Chicago, IL) in August 2009.

    Interview

    Tetra Pak used a recruiter based in Chicago. It's a global company, that appealed to me, along with the neat things they do with their packaging.
    The recruiter asked basic questions over the phone. Then I spoke to the VP Mktg via phone for about 45 mins. Third round, I went in to meet with the VP and the Dir. of HR. HR gave me a personality test (15 mins I think) followed by a a case study. I was given 20mins to review a production schedule and then create a production plan utilizing all 4 production facilities, product lines and customer needs. I then presented to the VP and HR. This was for a Brand Manager role.
    Overall, I got the sense it is a sales driven culture, no work-life balance. Very cool office in Vernon Hills, IL. Arts building, very nice layout, great coffee bar, even the bathroom had a touch of IKEA, seemed like a relaxed environment. I got the sense of a very tight run ship. Seemed like senior management was predominantly from the home office in Europe. There is a difference in management styles - US vs. Europe.
    Too bad I didn't get an offer.
