    I interviewed online - interviewed at Heinz in April 2014.

    Interview Details

    Several stages, including an online application, phone interview, online tests, skype interview and assessment center. The interviews consisted of competency questions. More or less the usual situation based question. I would think about all kind of different situations beforehand as I think you you are being ranked according to the answers.

    I interviewed online. The process took 1+ week - interviewed at Heinz in July 2013.

    Interview Details

    After the initial assessment of the CV, an assessment test was required to take. After successful completion of the assessment, I got an invitation for an interview. Three interviewers (HR, Finance Lead, Manager of Project), all looked really friendly, however, the interview process was not really clear of what they were looking for in an employee...

    Research Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Warrendale, PA (US)
    Application Details

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

    Interview Details

    I was contacted by a recruiter, and they quickly set up an interview for me with Heinz. At Heinz, I interviewed with a woman from HR and then a director in the department where they were hiring for the position. I spoke to each of them for about 30 minutes. They were both very nice to me. My only complaint is that I was rushed out of the conference room when someone needed to use it. I guess they removed all of their offices and replaced them with long computer tables so everyone can work together. I was interviewing in one of the few private rooms, so I needed to go. This happened when it was my turn to ask them any questions that I had. However, it felt awkward to walk and ask questions at the same time, so I decided to only ask a couple of questions. I am assuming I did not get the position, although I never actually received a rejection letter.

    On a side note, they did not tell me what pay to expect or what exactly the job would entail. I pretty much had to rely on the recruiters to tell me everything, but it seemed Heinz was vague with them as well. I ended up finding a really old job posting on Indeed from Heinz that finally gave me some concrete details about the person they wanted to hire. Without that, I would have been very unprepared.

    Interview Questions
    • They ask you questions listed from the paper that they have in front of them. They are pretty basic behavioral interview questions, but they did seem to emphasize questions that deal with their new culture. (For example, "How has meritocracy benefited you in your life so far?" or "Tell me about a time where you've shown leadership.")   Answer Question

    Application Details

    I interviewed through a recruiter - interviewed at Heinz.

    Interview Details

    the interview was more focused on potential and aspirations and not so much on past achievements. very different than other companies that hire only experienced professionals. good for college graduates who,don't have experience yet.

    Interview Questions
    • questions were easy and very standard as if right from college book on what ideal candidate would be. Made me wonder if any people would really chose the obviously incorrect answer in the screening process - I at least chose the ones that would make me look like a great employee willing to work non - stop to get the job done.   Answer Question

    Cost Financial Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Irvine, CA (US)
    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 6 weeks - interviewed at Heinz in February 2014.

    Interview Details

    Applied online and finally received an email exactly 4 weeks later to schedule a phone interview. Did a phone interview with the regional controller in Pittsburgh about a week later. Then scheduled for an in-person interview one week after that. The day before my in-person interview I received an EMAIL saying the position was being recalled and they would not be doing any interviews. Then the morning after my cancelled interview, I got another email asking if I could go in to interview THAT DAY! I called my husband home from work to watch our toddler so I could drop everything and go in to interview. Met with the plant manager for about 20 minutes and then with the HR rep for about 30 minutes and told I would hear back from her. It is now almost 5 months later and I haven't heard back yes, no, or otherwise. One of the most unprofessional interview processes I've been through.
