    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeksinterviewed at ConAgra Foods (Mississauga, ON).

    Interview

    There were 3 phone Interviews, one in-person interview. Lots of great questions during the phone interviews but when it came to the in-person interview with three team members and one manager on conference call, the conversation had a few unnecessary skill testing questions (see below), which I would have never thought would have been asked.
