    Intern Interview

    Application Details

    I interviewed through college or university - interviewed at ConAgra Foods.

    Interview Details

    Focused heavily on behavior and situational questions. The interview was structured into two mini interviews within 30 minutes. The first portion was with two employees and it began with basic questions then it went into more in depth about my interests and skills. The second portion was also with another two employees which asked a lot of behavioral questions. The interviewers ask a lot of questions so be prepared with an example of a challenging time or a situation you had to be a leader in mind that would work for answering a variety of questions.

    I interviewed through a recruiter. The process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at ConAgra Foods.

    Interview Details

    I applied to several jobs and did not hear anything for 6 months. At a career fair I inquired about the applications I had submitted and later that day a recruiter called and set up an interview. I interviewed with one individual on campus, then interviewed for 4 engineers in a panel two weeks later, after that I interviewed with a VP and then another VP before they offered me the job.

    Shift Lead Interview

    Anonymous Employee

    Application Details

    I interviewed through a recruiter. The process took 2 days - interviewed at ConAgra Foods in May 2014.

    Interview Details

    Everything was very straight forward. Interviewed on the phone with the HR rep and two managers. You can tell they are sitting in the same room across from each other speaking into a phone on speaker, so if you're a bit hard of hearing make sure you're prepared or get yourself into a quiet room. The phone interview might scare some people away, but just make a good impression and you'll get called back.

    Interview Questions
    • Every question was really based on the STAR method, so just brush up on that and you'll be fine. They like enthusiastic people.   Answer Question

    I interviewed through other source - interviewed at ConAgra Foods.

    Interview Details

    Was not interviewed.... ConAgra acquired Ralcorp and my position was transitioned. Many employees were demoted and were not given any other options. The entire process took approximately one year. Recent changes were made just 24 hours ago, during their fiscal year.

    Supply Chain Interview

    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at ConAgra Foods in April 2011.

    Interview Details

    The hiring process was fairly standard including initial HR phone screening, phone interview with hiring manager, on-site interview with hiring manager, and follow-up interview with site manager. It seems like the hiring manager steered most of the process which helped.

    Interview Questions
    Negotiation Details
    Received a competitive offer. There will most certainly be a set salary band for the position so it's important to find out what is budgeted and hopefully get to the magic number for the pay ceiling. Benefits are pretty much standard across the company, not much room for negotiating.

    Business Development Manager Interview

    Application Details

    I interviewed through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at ConAgra Foods.

    Interview Details

    Good HR screening process by third party (in-house) group. Interview day includes hiring manager, 2-3 peers, and an HR manager. There is no organized interview process, nor a standard or guided questionnaire. During my interview process, almost all the interviewers spent the majority of the time talking...selling ConAgra to me.
    The primary purpose of the interviews appears to see "if the person is a fit" within the organization. Personality and appearance are very important. Internal referral or reference is also very important.
