    I worked at Kellogg Company part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Fantastic experience working with one of the most exciting emerging Northern Irish brands in the cereal/grain/breakfast food market. Great (albeit surprising) insight into how the product is made.

    Cons

    CEO is involved in some shady business, and as a result, the product has been compromised. There is also industry-wide rumours of similar suspicious incidents; including one involving a lamp. This same man is also responsible for inventing "cookie soup", which has been known to cause super diarrhea (not to be confused with mega diarrhea). BEWARE!

    Advice to Management

    Quality control may be necessary. For more information on this company and the mysterious CEO behind the business, go on your computer and type in 028

    Kelloggs Production Scheduler Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Manchester, England
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Kellogg Company (Manchester, England) in June 2016.

    Interview

    Online Application with basic difficulty numerical test
    Personality Quiz
    Assessment Centre
    Arrived 9am - Had a brief overview of company
    1st Task - Email Priority Task (Tip - Check for similar Subjects and 'delete' earliest) 35 mins
    2nd Task - Scheduling Task (Production stopped during the night - what are the possible implications) 20 mins

    2 Hour Break (Bad organisation)

    3rd Task - Interview - 2 on 1 - Tell us about your cv experience, then 3 questions (see below). Approx 1hr

    1 hour break (more bad organisation)

    4th Task - Group Task - Live in a world which has run out of money, prioritise list of 10 things and agree with others.
    5 mins prep by yourself + 20 mins group task

    Example of things to prioritise (Kill all Pets, Cancel Xmas, Suspend Womens equal pay, Stop funding to an already underfunded orphanage, Ban recreational use of vehicles, Ban alcohol)

    Told that the selection was going to be really quick and that we would be contacted the next day.
    Next day came and went.
    Three working days later I phoned them, they said that the recruiting Manager had not decided yet (at this point he clearly had!). Three hours after phone call I recieved an email telling me unsuccessful but I could email the recruiting manager for feedback. So I did....
    Yet to receive feedback!

    OK, I didnt get the job... that aside, I found the experience to be badly organised, lacking professionalism and clearly to put the time and effort in and yet not even get a phone call showed a lack of manners.

    There was also a significant lack of detail for the role... I was at the final stage of interviewing and I still don't know what the working hours were (aside from having to work approx 1 weekend in 5), nor do I know what the salary (not even a range) or holiday benefits the job entails.
