    Interview

    I received a call from HR. We set up an interview. I had an interview with John Spain whom was very nice and professional. He made me feel comfortable throughout the whole process and was understanding when I felt like I jumbled my words.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at The J. M. Smucker Company in September 2016.

    Interview

    The interview process was very basic (strengths and weaknesses) etc. The interviewers were nice and helpful in answering any of my questions. The first interview was fairly brief and simple. They asked me mostly behavioral questions in the first round. A lot of the questions were very similar and I noticed myself giving a lot of the same answers.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at The J. M. Smucker Company (Orrville, OH) in January 2011.

    Interview

    Not sure if the proverbial right hand knows what the left hand is doing in Orrville. Applied for a Mkt position. Was contacted by HR and told I had a phone interview with the hiring VP. We set up a day and time for a call. No one called. Called HR back recieved voice mail. In a follow-up call was told the hiring VP was in a meeting, sorry, will get back to you with availablity. Next week no response from HR, I called and was told they did not have the hiring managers availability--HMM!. Next week receive an email from HR that availability was unknown, fill out our a candidate profile. Completed the profile, sent a note, no response. Sent an email to HR the next week asking for a status. Three weeks later I receive a form email that I am not a match.

    I have heard the process is very tedious at Smucker, but this experience was IMO unprofessional. You would expect to be treated with higher respect from a company with its reputation.

    Receive numerous calls from the company and once you have a phone interview you must fill out a candidate bio form. After the bio form received a first interview, but after three weeks was told they were going in a different direction.
