    I have been working at Conagra Brands full-time

    Pros

    Great well known household brands
    Flex hours that are actually implemented
    Above the average industry standard salary
    Good work life balance
    Strong policy on promoting within

    Cons

    Turnover rate is quite high - most are people that have been with the company for many years.

    Observe favoritism in some upper management - ignore talent but promote based on whom they like

    High margin expectations

    No international employee exchange programs

    Weak in utilizing resources from different global markets

    Advice to Management

    In seeing most of the low ratings, they are either one of two things: 1) that have been part of the restructuring 2) or long term employees who have left that cannot deal with changes.

    The CPG world is fast changing. Cut costing and working efficiently is the new world order. It is just not at Conagra!

    To management, maintain the non monetary incentives for current employees to keep morale up.

    Project managers need to elevate their roles to police timelines and tasks. It makes people accountable for to ensure nothing gets delayed.

    Attract better talent, long term fit and avoid hiring fast to solely fill a role.

    Cutting costs? No longer providing lunch after townhall vs. Private jets/new high tech office?? Please quantify the actual dollar savings without reducing morale with employees.

    Marketing Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Toronto, ON
    Declined Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Conagra Brands (Toronto, ON) in September-2017.

    Interview

    The interview process was quick, smooth and a positive experience. I applied online, was contacted by HR for a 20 min phone interview, following by an in-person interview with some senior brand managers and HR manager. The actual interview was very standard - about 5-6 standard behavorial questions, followed by a few follow up questions.

    Interview Questions

    • 1) Tell us about a time you used analytical skills to make a decision?
      2) Tell us about a time a team member did not agree with your POV. What did you do?
