    I have been working at Pinnacle Foods full-time (More than 3 years)


    Leanly staffed so everyone has a big role to play; your work can have big impact. Opportunities to work on projects beyond your regular work. Results oriented company. Great co-workers. Everyone plays to win. Winning track record of results. Easy access to senior leadership. Values are not just a poster on the wall - people actually live them.


    Leanly staffed can also be a con; have to be able to stand up for yourself in prioritizing your work and creating work/life balance

    Advice to Management

    Be better at prioritizing and recognizing the limited resources to get things done

    Difficult Interview


    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Pinnacle Foods.


    First round of interview consisted of eight 1-1 interviews with some of the team members as well as potential hiring managers. A long day but positive conversations and all interviewers were respectful & knowledgeable.

    2nd round consisted of another 8 interviews, 1-1 with Sr. level of the company. Respectful & Knowledgeable as well. Talent clearly exists at the company. 16 interviews seemed a bit overkill, but rather nice to see time and energy put into candidates.

    However, new HR leadership a complete and utter disaster: unprofessional practices during interview process & toxic!
