Rachel, Accounting Intern
If you’re interested in an accounting internship, go to Pinnacle Foods. The staff is amazing and still reaches out to me even though my internship ended. The work environment was very enjoyable - I didn't dread going into work! I was actually excited to walk through the doors every day and see what project I'd receive.
Pinnacle Foods offers a competitive benefits structure, including:
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
I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Pinnacle Foods (Parsippany, NJ) in March 2017.
The interview process went very well! Within maybe a week of applying for the position, I heard back from Talent Acquisition and was told that the team was interested in seeing what I had to offer as a candidate, and asked for my availability to schedule a phone interview. I had the phone interview a day later (it was a Friday), and was told that if the team wanted to proceed with me, Talent Acquisition would get back to me regarding an in-person interview. That following Tuesday, I was asked for my availability to come in for an in-person interview. My interview was scheduled two weeks from that date, as it was most convenient for everyone's schedule. The in-person was a panel-type interview, in which I met and interviewed with four members of the team I would be working with, and finally Talent Acquisition at the very end to go over logistics. The first four individual meetings were 45 minutes each, and the final was 30 minutes. The bulk of the interview questions were either behavior-based in order to get a feel for who I was as a professional and individual, or "Tell me about a time when--" questions. In addition to gauging suitability for the position, the company also wants to see that you embody what they stand for, what they do, and what you can bring to the table to help them with their mission. I was told that if the team wanted to proceed with me, I would hear back shortly thereafter and be asked for references. A week later, Talent Acquisition reached out to me for my references, which I completed right away, and the following day, I received the offer for the position.
