    I worked at Wells' Dairy (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Senior executive leadership demonstrate strong personal convictions and alignment with corporate goals.
    Manufacturing and marketing ice cream provides strong affinity between consumers, the company, and brand characteristics.
    Opportunities to set personal goals that contribute to advancement of your career, provided they align with corporate goals and objectives.
    Exciting marketing implications for a brand that is growing and positioned as a challenger brand to leading national ice cream brands owned by national and international conglomerates.
    Competitive pay, typically higher than other companies in this part of the midwest.

    Cons

    Still trying to find the right mix between supply and demand as drivers of overall business strategy, leaving a fair amount of uncertainty in the corporate structure.
    I experienced three significant corporate restructures during my nine years with Wells.

    Advice to Management

    Don't overlook aspiring talent within the company as you seek to fill key positions with "outsiders."

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Wells' Dairy (Minneapolis, MN) in April 2017.

    Interview

    It was a very long process from beginning to end. I flew to the office in Minneapolis and met with the marketing and trade teams. I was very impressed overall. I was disappointed that I was not reimbursed for my expenses.
