    Interview Questions

    • Sat in front of three employees, one of which was a supervisor. Asked STAR method questions (situation, task, action, result). Only problem was that they did it in groups and it took two hours to be interviewed.   Answer Question

    I found them at a career fair, so we initially talked over my career goals. Then I scheduled a zoom interview with them because of Coronavirus, which happened to be very friendly and enjoyable as far as interviews go.

    Staff Financial Accountant Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at The Hershey Company (Harrisburg, PA) in May 2020.

    Interview

    Interview process seems very fake so far. I don’t know if she worked at Hershey or an independent hr company, or even a scammer. Phone number was registered to New Jersey. She seemed to be asking very generic questions. I just want to know if this was a scam or not. I don’t know how to feel about it.

    Intern Interview

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 8 weeks. I interviewed at The Hershey Company.

    Interview

    Applied on LinkedIn. One week later, HR reached out to me for a first round interview. Interview was scheduled for the next week. The interviewer ghosted me- never called. I emailed HR and they rescheduled the interview for a date the next week. I had the interview, and it was a wonderful and informing conversation. But, the interviewer never apologized for ghosting me. 2 weeks after the interview, I was invited back for a second round interview, which consisted of a few difficult behavioral questions and a case study. It took three weeks after the second round to get my decision, which was a rejection that was sent by an automated email. It is quite disrespectful that they sent an automated email rejecting me after two hour long interviews.
    Total process took 8 weeks- way too long.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at The Hershey Company.

    Interview

    I went through three rounds of interviews. Must answer using "star" technique when responding. The STAR method is a structured manner of responding to a behavioral-based interview question by discussing the specific situation, task, action, and result of the situation you are describing. Waited a long time to hear back in between interviews.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at The Hershey Company.

    Interview

    Group interviews with about 20 people, then you go to one on two interviews. The interview was sort of difficult but as long as you present yourself well you should be just fine.

    Retail Sales Representative Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at The Hershey Company (Milwaukee, WI) in February 2020.

    Interview

    I was instructed to select a time through email to have an hour long phone interview. The interview was conducted by a recruiter out of New Jersey who did not speak clear English and had me repeat my answers 2-3 times for every question. At the end he couldn’t answer my questions such as typical salary, average hours per week, or even what cities this “district” position serviced. He told me I would receive a recap email the day of the interview and confirmed my email - I never received this. He also stated someone would be in contact with next steps within the next week - which never occurred.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at The Hershey Company.

    Interview

    The interview process was very professional yet comfortable. It was about 45 minutes long and was very informative. They asked me a lot of situational questions. I was also asked to give examples of how I have demonstrated some of the Hershey values. Overall it was a great experience and I can't believe that it was 45 minutes long because it flew by for me.
