Kellogg Company – Why Work For Us?


In 1906, W.K. Kellogg saw a better way. Healthier food and a healthier work place. “I’ll invest my money in people,” W.K. famously said, and he stayed true to his commitment. In the midst of the Great Depression he pioneered a new 6-hour shift, hiring an additional 300 workers. His Corn Flakes were an economical meal during hard times.

His mission and legacy have inspired the Kellogg Company to lead the way, innovating in our industry and standing behind our employees. From marketing to manufacturing every member of our team helps Kellogg bring our well-loved brands to consumers. We work in 80 countries around the world, collaborating with every employee to further our mission: to enrich and delight the world through foods and brands that matter.

Through employee resource groups (Like KVets and Women of Kellogg), Feeling Gr-r-eat (our health and wellbeing program) and a focus on career development, we are truly devoted to helping all employees thrive at Kellogg.

Our Vision and Purpose are at the heart of everything we do. Simple yet powerful, they define why we're here and where we're going-made possible by the extraordinary talent of everyone who works here. People like you. Our heritage, through the inspiration of W.K. Kellogg, continues to drive our company and keeps us committed to creating a stronger future every day by putting people first in everything we do.

Inclusion is one of our core values we continue to collaborate with our teams across the globe, who proudly represent Kellogg operations in 18 countries around the world. Kellogg Company’s commitment to diversity can be traced back to our founder, W.K. Kellogg, who was a pioneer in employing women in the workplace and reaching across cultural boundaries.

The company continues his legacy more than 100 years later by making diversity and inclusion top priorities. Our employee resource groups, or ERGs, best exemplify Kellogg’s commitment to a diverse and inclusive workplace. Our 7 ERGs help promote support and growth within the Kellogg Company team and defining our commitment externally with recruiting and networking events. Kellogg’s ERGs are: ¡Hola!

Kellogg is a proud recipient of a Patriot Award, which recognizes organizations providing extraordinary support and cooperation to citizens who serve. This honor was bestowed by the Employer Support of Guard and Reserve (ESGR), an agency of the Department of Defense.

With so many Kellogg employees having military service, along with numerous employees who are family members and supporters of loved ones in the military, Kellogg is proud to support all our Military Veteran employees and their families with our Employee Resource Group (ERG), K-Vets & Supporters. This group actively engages with employees who have service experience and assists with our veteran recruiting and development, strengthening our position as an employer of choice for veterans and their supporters. We are also honored to support a variety of military initiatives, including Wounded Warrior Project, National Military Family Association and the Defense Commissary Agency Scholarship Fund.

    I have been working at Kellogg Company full-time

    Pros

    Opportunity - The management I've experienced has been fantastic. I've had two managers who both have given me ample responsibility and freedom to run with my project how I see fit.

    People - I love the people I work with. On my (larger) team, no one takes themselves too seriously. It's quite a fun time.

    Culture - The casual, family culture still lives on. I can wear the clothes I work best in to work, I'm not micro-managed, I get free cereal and I work for a company that aims to continually embed strong values that honor integrity and character.

    Flexibility - The work flexibility is fantastic. I can work from home if I need to or head out of the office a few hours early if needed, and it's no big deal as long as I'm getting my work done, putting my hours in and showing good results.

    Cons

    Work / Life Balance can sometimes be tough depending on your position and workload, but the flexibility is nice.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to strive towards transparency and humbleness. Don't take yourself too seriously. Continue to educate every department on the true status of the company and give praise where praise is do.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Kellogg Company (Atlanta, GA) in December 2016.

    Interview

    1) I was phone screened by the corporate recruiter which lasted 40 minutes. This was about two weeks after I applied.
    2) I was phone interviewed by the hiring manager two days later which took about 1 hour 45 minutes. He was very professional about the position and connected on a personal level as well. I was impressed at this first contact.
    3) I was asked to do a phone interview with the plant operation director, the hiring manager, and the HR manager. I asked for an on-site interview and was granted one three business days later. I also got a plant tour.
    4) I was offered the job the following day.
