Campbell Soup Company – Why Work For Us?




THE CAMPBELL STORY

Campbell Soup Company (NYSE:CPB) is a global food company headquartered in Camden, N.J., with annual sales of approximately $8 billion. The Company makes a range of high-quality soups and simple meals, beverages, snacks and packaged fresh foods. Campbell is driven and inspired by our purpose: Real food that matters for life’s moments. For generations, people have trusted Campbell to provide authentic, flavorful and readily available foods and beverages that connect them to each other, to warm memories, and to what’s important today.

Led by our iconic Campbell’s brand, our portfolio extends beyond soup to foods such as Pepperidge Farm cookies and Goldfish crackers; Arnott’s, Kjeldsens and Royal Dansk biscuits; V8 beverages; Bolthouse Farms super-premium beverages, carrots and dressings; Garden Fresh Gourmet salsas, hummus, dips and tortilla chips; Plum premium organic baby food; Swanson broths; Prego pasta sauces; Pace Mexican sauce; and Pacific Foods organic broths, soups and plant-based beverages.


WE MAKE REAL FOOD FOR REAL PEOPLE

They trust us to provide food and drink that is good, honest, authentic, and flavorful—made from ingredients that are grown, prepared, cooked, or baked with care.

People love that our food fits their real lives, fuels their bodies, and feeds their souls. And they appreciate knowing what goes into our food, and why—so they can feel good about the choices they make, for themselves and their loved ones.


WHAT WE DO EVERY DAY MATTERS

Families of all kinds rely on our foods. Our people rely on us for a challenging and supportive workplace. Our customers rely on us to help them meet the needs of their customers — profitably.

Communities rely on us to help them thrive. And our shareholders rely on us for solid, sustainable returns. We make the biggest impact for all these groups when we set, and meet, high goals.









OUR FOOD ENCOURAGES PEOPLE TO PAUSE AND SAVOR LIFE’S MOMENTS

Whether shared or enjoyed alone, every single product we make connects people — to each other, to warm memories, to what’s important today — and invites them to live those moments to their fullest.

Our purpose has had a profound impact on how we think, talk and act about our food. We are using it as a filter for decision making and have made steady progress, but we realized we needed a more precise definition of real food to drive faster, better and more consistent decisions and outcomes. Enter our Real Food Philosophy.

How We’re Living Our Values

Since 2014, we’ve been on a journey to become a purpose-driven organization. We began by defining our Purpose, Real food that matters for life’s moments, which helped us capture who we are, what we believe, and the company we want to be. We’ve made great progress on our journey, including our work to define what real food means to us through our Real Food Philosophy. But to truly activate the philosophy and become a purpose-driven organization with innovation at the helm, we needed to reinvent our culture, and that started with answering a simple question–What do we value?

In 2016, the Campbell Leadership Team set out to answer that question. Each word was meticulously and purposefully chosen with the goal of redefining Campbell’s Values to create the behaviors and culture we need to live into our Purpose. We believe in these Values and the accompanying behaviors they put forth. Our Values are a representation of what our company and our people have always stood for, while inspiring us to embrace change to compete effectively in a dynamic marketplace.

More than a year after introducing these Values, we’re seeing them come to life in a variety of ways across Campbell:

  • On our social network. Campbell employees interact on Workplace, an internal social media platform powered by Facebook. Our people have gotten creative and made the site their own, using the hashtag function to tag corporate Values in their posts.
  • In our talent development efforts. Our Values are being embedded into performance management internally and behavioral interviewing externally, allowing us to attract and retain individuals who share Campbell’s ideals.
  • In our training. We introduced new Campbell University training through which employees can learn how to apply the Values to their own work. Values 360 helps employees assess how well their own behaviors align with company standards.
  • From our leaders. Our C100, or the top 100 leaders within Campbell, are key to transforming our culture to reflect our Values. Leaders recorded a series of videos discussing what Campbell’s Values mean to them.

At Campbell, we strive to create an inclusive and inspired environment, rich in diverse people, talent and ideas to fuel our growth and create a high performance culture driven by engaged employees.   We believe that the key to success is attracting, retaining and engaging a diverse workforce that reflects our consumer of today and tomorrow.

Campbell has 9 Identity (ID) Networks.  These are groups that are dedicated to building our inclusive culture and connecting employees to the business 

  • Four dedicated to affinity (America Indian, Asian, Black and Hispanic)
  • One focused on position/job (Campbell Administrative Professionals aka CAPs)

  • One dedicated to living into our purpose, “Real food that matter’s for life’s moment” (Roots)

2018 Corporate Responsibility Report

At Campbell, our Purpose — Real food that matters for life’s moments — has fundamentally altered how we think, talk and act about our food, from farm to table: from how our food is grown and the ingredients we select, to how we prepare our foods and the types of brands in our portfolio.


For nearly 150 years, Campbell has made real food and real experiences that connect our consumers to each other and to the world around them. People trust us to provide foods and drinks that are good, honest, authentic and flavorful — made from ingredients that are grown, prepared and cooked or baked with care.


And, now more than ever, consumers expect brands to be socially and environmentally responsible, serve a purpose in their lives, reflect their values and beliefs, and make a difference in the world. Moreover, they want companies like ours to be authentic and open, particularly about how and where their food is made, why certain ingredients are used and how those ingredients are produced and sourced.


We welcome this era of transparency as a new opportunity to connect with consumers. We know the people who buy our foods hold us to a higher standard, and we welcome that accountability. That’s our character as a company.

    I worked at Campbell Soup Company full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Campbell's Soup Company has hired you as their "Math Genius". They want their new soup can to have a volume of 500 cm³. The top and bottom of the can is made of a metal that costs 6 cents per cm² while the sides of the can cost 4 cents per cm². (Of course, as the "Math Genius" you know that V = πr²h and Surface Area = 2πrh + 2πr².)

    Cons

    Express the total cost of the can as a function of the radius of the cylinder.

    Advice to Management

    What dimensions of the can produce the least cost?

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 5+ weeks. I interviewed at Campbell Soup Company in October 2017.

    Interview

    Their interview process was as tasteless as their soups. Applied online, got an interview within a week on campus. Behavioral interview based on their values. Heard nothing for at least 5 weeks before emailing them myself, when I was told that all their positions had been filled. I didn’t expect no answer after an interview from such a big company. Very disappointed in their lack of professionalism.
