I applied online. I interviewed at The Hershey Company

Interview

Interview process was not a personal experience. Phone screen was done by outside agency who didn’t know a lot about Hershey. Video interview was comprised of standardized questions. Overall it didn’t feel like the interviewers were interested in you as a person.

Application

I applied through college or university. The process took 2 months. I interviewed at The Hershey Company (Blacksburg, VA) in Feb 2022

Interview

I applied through my university and had a phone screen scheduled a couple weeks later. I did not receive any communication for a month and a half after this (even though I was told I would hear back within two weeks). I finally received an email asking me to complete a survey about their hiring process. I was asked how my in-person interview was even though I was never scheduled for one. I had no idea I was no longer being considered for the position until I got to one survey question that basically asked "were you made aware of why you were removed from the process." The lack of respect for prospective employees by this company is appalling.
