    I have been working at Kraft Heinz Company full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The people and the company are very motivated to succeed in a transforming retail and consumer environment. Management is very supportive of innovation and the new ideas that will drive portfolio and work process changes to meet the business needs. My work group has a real sense of community and support. Generous PTO and other benefits. Communication is very open and honest. Leadership is very approachable.

    Cons

    No major issues. The external forces in the food and beverage industry make it harder to overlap past performance. I think Kraft Heinz is making many tough decisions to best succeed in this space.

    Advice to Management

    Keep going with the bold direction. Our investment in business and product innovation will continue to drive improvements and attract great people.

    Continuous Improvement Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Tulare, CA
    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Kraft Heinz Company (Tulare, CA) in April 2012.

    Interview

    Used to use situational-based interviewing. DDI's Targeted Selection was the standard across Kraft Foods. "Tell us about a situation in which you......" "What were the actions you took?" "What was the result?" Not sure what the new standard will look like. Things may change given the recent Kraft-Heinz merge.

    Interview Questions

    • Tell us about a time you had to deal with an upset customer (internal or external)? What was the situation? How did you respond? What was the result? (conflict management)   Answer Question
