    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Welch's (Concord, MA) in January 2017.

    Interview

    Applied online in Nov 2016 and was contacted by an external recruiter for a quick phone screen in early Jan 2017. He then scheduled a phone interview with the HR manager and the hiring manager. They then arranged for me to travel up to their HQ in Concord for back-to-back interviews with key stakeholders over half a day. Interviews themselves were friendly chats with people who were genuinely interested in learning about my skills and sharing their thoughts on the company and role.
    The travel arrangements and subsequent expense formalities were smoothly handled.

    Operations Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Concord, MA
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Welch's (Concord, MA) in April 2015.

    Interview

    Too long, too many people involved. It's a very long drawn out process that could be handled much more efficiently. You meet with everyone that you might come in contact with at a cross functional level. Most people conducting the interview didn't even know why they were asked to interview. They didn't have specific questions. The process could be streamlined.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Welch's (Concord, MA) in November 2011.

    Interview

    Very casual and straight to the point. Since it was an employee referral from a long term employee, the interview was very smooth and met with a minimum number of management personnel.

    Finance Manager Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Welch's (Concord, MA) in May 2009.

    Interview

    Three separate days of interviews meeting all levels of finance staff and management. Although the questions were all very good and pertinent, I'm not sure that every member of the finance staff needs to interview and approve a lower level finance manager.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    I was able to negotiate an additional week vacation and a starting bonus of 3% of my annual salary.

    Sales Team Leader Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Welch's in April 2010.

    Interview

    Interviewed with 6 Welch's associates during the process. Initial interviews were local and then was flown to Boston to visit their offices and sit with peer associates and Human Resources. The office was pretty small based on the size of the company and was very empty due to the recent reorganization and reduction of staff in Concord, MA.

    Lots of prepared, canned questions. Not as much conversation as I am used too. Was more concerned with process than content. Everyone I spoke to seemed very bored. Very little passion or excitement.
