    Senior Human Resources Specialist Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at The J. M. Smucker Company (San Francisco, CA) in September 2017.

    Interview

    I had a phone interview and first off they were 8 mins late. The person I had the phone interview scheduled with did apologize and seemed really nice to talk to. She explained how the call would go. She then asked me a question that I started to answer. She then interrupted me and said she had to move the call into the conference room and would call back. I said ok. But then when she called back it wasn't her it was her very brash and aggressive colleague that I had no idea I would be speaking with. She was very quick to get me off the phone and the whole call lasted 6 minutes. She practically hung up on me at the end. I have never had such an unprofessional phone interview before. Then the next day I already got a thanks but no thanks email. I understand that there may not be a good fit for me but I feel like I wasn't even given a chance to really talk about myself and learn of the position. I hope they find a good fit and maybe change their practices a bit.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at The J. M. Smucker Company (San Francisco, CA) in March 2017.

    Interview

    Round 1 HR phone interview, Round 2 phone interview with the hiring manager, Round 3 in person interview with HR, hiring manager, and three other team members. The phone interviews were good but in person the team was very dry and didn't seem as enthusiastic about the company. The company has gone through a lot of change and its difficult to say how much that affected the team

    Industrial Designer Interview

    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at The J. M. Smucker Company in February 2017.

    Interview

    I had a phone interview for Industrial Design with the pets division at Smuckers. This review is short, because well, the interview was short. My GPA was not stated on my resume and since it was below a 3.0 they thanked me for my time and said I do not qualify. It's totally fine that this didn't work out, but they could have just asked that in an email instead of wasting my time where I did a intensive amount of research and rearranged things in my schedule to have this call.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at The J. M. Smucker Company in December 2016.

    Interview

    The interview process was standard. Initial phone call with recruiter, then I was informed that I was going to be contacted. A week passed by and I decided to follow up with the recruiter about the status. The recruiter then got back to me stating that the hiring manager was on holiday vacation and also asked when was it best for me to come onsite. I responded with my available dates/times and have not received any response after that. They did not inform me at all that they were going to not move on with my application.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at The J. M. Smucker Company (North Canton, OH) in September 2016.

    Interview

    The interview process started with a 30 minute phone interview with an HR contact followed by a 30 minute phone interview with the hiring manager. Unfortunately that's where it ended and I received a rejection email about a week after that. I felt like both phone interviews went well so it was disappointing that I did not receive an in person interview.
