  • Adaptability

    2. Are you available to work overtime, evenings, and weekends?

      What You Need to Know

      The hours you would be expected to work at The Kraft Heinz Company largely depend on which department you'll work in. It's typical when working in production or delivery to be required to perform shift work or work on weekends. In the corporate office, you may be salaried, which often translates to working longer hours. Perform your research on the role before your interview so you don't ask any clarifying questions you should already know and come across as ill-prepared. However, if it is still unclear, express that you performed exhaustive research and couldn't clarify those expectations on your own.

      Written by Kevin Downey on September 7th, 2022

      1st Answer Example

      "I am excited about the opportunity to work for Kraft Foods, and I am available to work whatever hours are required to get the job done. Can you tell me more about what I can expect from the schedule? I am flexible, and I am comfortable with working long hours."

  • Ask The Interviewer

    3. Are there any questions I can answer for you?

      What You Need to Know

      You're interviewing the company as much as they are interviewing you. Asking questions will convey to your interviewer that you take this opportunity seriously and are taking extra measures to ensure this is the right fit for both parties. It will also convey that you've researched the company and the position. The more prepared you are for the interview, the more questions you'll have. Note any questions you think of while researching the company. Think about it as getting a head start on your onboarding.

      Coming prepared with questions communicates your genuine interest in working for them and suggests you are self-guided in your work, take charge of your development, and are an overachiever. Additionally, the more questions you come prepared with, the more enhanced your communications skills will seem. They've provided opportunities for you to share your accomplishments and advertise your merits. This question is your opportunity to allow them to propose their pitch and advertise what they have to offer as an employer.

      Written by Kevin Downey on September 7th, 2022

      1st Answer Example

      "Thank you. I have a few questions. For starters, can you tell me what transpired that led to the vacancy of this position? Also, I have the experience needed to perform the job and am familiar with what the role looks like, but every department is different. Based on the department's rules, regulations, and systems and processes, what does a day in the job with your department look like in this position after onboarding?"

    5. If you had an issue with a company policy or procedure, how would you handle it?

      What You Need to Know

      This question assesses your adaptability and whether you embrace or resist change. The Kraft Heinz Company has brands that have evolved over the years, and the company has been through several incarnations. Adapting to change is part of their success.

      As they state in their core values, "Attracting, nurturing, and developing talent is our top priority." The interviewers want to make sure they recruit the best of the best. They're looking for employees who strive to innovate and evolve with them rather than finding comfort in the status quo and resisting change when it comes.

      Consider this question a character test. Policies coming down from the top are likely in place for reasons you may not be fully aware of nor privy to. The interviewers want to discern if you ask questions to understand and support the company's vision. They want to know if you voice your concerns if you disagree with a policy and whether you are motivated by self-interest or the betterment of the team. Consider these points before answering such questions.

    6. What motivates you on the job?

      What You Need to Know

      Identifying the factors that motivate you at work and inspire your productivity will help them discern whether you enjoy your work and intend to continue your career path with intention. This helps them distinguish those invested in their career path from those who fell into it and are more likely to burn out and exhibit less growth potential. Avoid focusing on tangible rewards or compensation as your motivators. Instead, give them insights into where you aim to take your career next, where you hope Kraft Heinz can help you grow professionally, and the work that makes you feel most content or challenged. Stress that you don't burn out easily in this field. Share what helps you stay productive throughout your workday.

    7. Tell me a little about yourself.

      What You Need to Know

      Interviewers ask ice breaker questions like this to get to know the real you while contrasting your personality against your professional presentation. Your answer will help them evaluate when your answers are authentic rather than performative. It also serves as a personality check to see how well you'd get along with and integrate into the rest of their teams.

      Before the interview, compose a capsule bio - a description of your life relevant to the position, typically about 200 words. You can include personal information such as where you were born, a blurb about your parents and upbringing, educational and professional achievements, and the reason you are here today. Rehearse it, ensuring you come across as relaxed, interesting, and relatable.

    8. How do you feel about performing mundane and repetitive tasks?

      What You Need to Know

      This question aims to determine how flexible you are as an employee in an environment like theirs. The goal here is to ascertain whether you are adaptable to performing both collaborative and more introverted tasks and how varied your tasks need to be to remain productive. Your answer will help them judge whether you'll burn out quickly from the monotonous aspects of the job.

      The impression you want to give is that you are up to any challenge they throw your way. Elaborate on how your experience correlates with the expectations of the job. Then, ask for further clarification of what the position entails beyond what they advertise in the job description and what your research uncovered.

    9. How do you like to spend your spare time?

      What You Need to Know

      You want to come across as relatable here. Offering hobbies that require discipline, dedication, or other traits that could speak to your work ethic would be of value here. Additionally, any interests that would present you as interesting and memorable would also work in this answer.

      Avoid spelling out any conflicts your hobbies would present. If you say you are available to start immediately, have an open schedule, and are willing to relocate, and then later tell them that in your spare time you are starting a restaurant, have a lounge club act that performs seven nights a week, or belongs to a bowling league that goes out of town regularly, these pose a conflict between commitments. Consider these points when choosing how to answer this question.

      A career-minded individual is proactive in their professional development.

    14. What interests you about The Kraft Heinz Company?

      What You Need to Know

      Before your interview, it is essential to research the company and determine how your goals, values, and integrity align with theirs. One of the leading contributors to job dissatisfaction is when a company doesn't represent their employee and vice versa, which can lead to a lack of mutual appreciation.

      Not only do you want to ensure you fit their profile, but you want to make sure they fit yours. Impress the interviewers with your company knowledge, and share what interests you most about them, what they stand for and represent, and what they do. They are also looking for employees who will be strong representatives of their brand, so think about what you love about their products and company. Consider how they meet your needs as a customer. This will communicate that you're not looking for just any job but are genuinely interested in working for them.

      What You Need to Know

      You can interpret this nuanced question in a variety of ways. It doesn't suggest a personal problem between you and another team member. It implies a conflict occurring between one team member and another. Responding to a conflict can be challenging, especially in a team environment where you want to be sensitive and not step on any toes. The interviewer is looking at your communication skills and your focus on a team mentality. They're also looking for any red flags your answer might present.

  • Creative Thinking

    20. Tell me about a time you had to think outside the box to solve a problem.

      What You Need to Know

      This question aims to assess your leadership potential and how well you navigate obstacles on the job. Your answer will help them evaluate how determined you are to succeed or whether you suffer task paralysis and seek guidance anytime an obstacle comes along. Innovation is partly achieved by taking calculated risks. Think of a situation where you stepped outside of your comfort zone and took an unconventional approach to a difficult situation that required an immediate solution. Explain what inspired you to take this approach. When delivering your example, you want to present yourself as someone who takes calculated risks rather than a habitual risk-taker.

      As they state in their core values, "We dare to do better every day. We are on a journey of continuous improvement, constantly challenging the status quo. Our curiosity ensures we are constantly learning and working to be better than we were yesterday. Our commitment to efficiency enables us to courageously invest in our business and fuel growth. We champion great people. We are a meritocracy. Attracting, nurturing, and developing talent is our top priority. Great people have the vision to see what must be done, and the courage to do it. As a company, we are only as great as the quality of our teams. Our people make the difference."

    22. Are you interviewing with anyone else?

      What You Need to Know

      If asked this question during your interview, the interviewers want to know where this job scales on your wishlist and if you are under a timeline to secure a position. They're also likely looking for assurances that you want to work for them and aren't playing the numbers game and looking for any job anywhere.

      Let them know that a role with Kraft Heinz is at the top of your wishlist, but be honest if you're actively looking elsewhere and express that you are being responsible in your search. One way to do this is to keep an organized folder with every customized resume and cover letter you've submitted to each position you are interviewing for, separated by tabs, with notes on each interview and a breakdown of the pro and cons. Most effective interviewers have something similar for the applicants they're interviewing.

      Just have it with you, with a tab containing the materials you've prepared for this interview, trying to keep the other tabs for your eyes only. That will indicate that you are an organized professional taking all your prospects seriously. It will also present you as a desirable candidate.

      Share with the interviewers your experience working in a diverse workplace. Communicate clearly and decisively while remaining relaxed and confident. The last thing you want to do is come across as uncomfortable or out of your element when answering this question. A person who doesn't feel comfortable when immersed in a culturally diverse environment might have difficulty navigating this question. They might stammer and struggle to find the right words. But a person who has experience being immersed in a culturally rich environment working with people from all walks of life will have no trouble navigating this question with ease.

The Kraft Heinz Company advertises its desire to hire individuals who demonstrate leadership qualities because they invest in their employees and often promote from within. Impress the interviewer by showing how you manage your workload and take action before anyone has the chance to ask you first. By focusing on your team's needs, you are focusing on yourself.

  • Problem Solving

    32. How do you handle situations that could cause you to be tardy or absent?

      What You Need to Know

      This question is nuanced and layered. Not only are the interviewers looking for insights into your track record with your attendance, but they are interested in how your team mentality comes into play when faced with the possibility of arriving late to work. Someone who considers the big picture and understands running behind could disrupt productivity and the time management of their leaders will call in and inform them of the potential of running behind. Doing so exhibits forward-thinking professional courtesy and the emotional intelligence required to take responsibility for one's actions. Show your interviewers that you take a proactive approach when confronted with these situations.

  • Salary

    33. What are your salary expectations?

      What You Need to Know

      There are many unspoken rules surrounding the etiquette of addressing salary and benefits in an interview. When the interviewer brings it up directly, covering this topic is appropriate. However, as with any part of preparing for an interview, every aspect requires performing adequate research in advance. Research your experience level and the job market to find a realistic figure. Before suggesting a number, use this opportunity to ask questions about what they offer in health benefits, bonuses or incentives, commuter perks, retirement packages, stock options, and PTO. Anything that reduces the expenses associated with your cost of living can be considered pay. Taking into consideration where they're meeting, exceeding, or wanting in this regard, you can adjust your number accordingly, use your current earnings as a baseline, and consider the job market to determine your current professional worth while allowing for a range of flexibility.

  • Stress

    34. The work environment at The Kraft Heinz Company can be fast-paced at times. How do you handle stress?

      What You Need to Know

      This question evaluates how realistic your perception aligns with the reality of the job and whether you'd be a sustainable hire. The interviewers need to assess whether you have the emotional intelligence to sustain being in a high-pressure, fast-paced environment or if you're more likely to burn out. Interviewing, hiring, and training is expensive, and the time invested in hiring someone will relieve the pressures on those covering for the staff shortage. Hiring an individual who isn't suited for the role could result in quick turnover, further burdening the rest of the team and causing further issues for the work environment.

  • Teamwork

    35. It’s important for shift changes to go smoothly at The Kraft Heinz Company to maintain productivity. How do you ensure seamless transitions?

      What You Need to Know

      Any business with several shifts, or the changing of the guard, requires a higher degree of teamwork. When done well, one shift sets the other up for success, ensuring seamless transitions and collaboration, especially when some members of these teams rarely overlap and the individual is not directly recognized or rewarded for their efforts. Therefore, this question evaluates your scope of that big picture. Share your philosophy and approach to enhancing collaboration and how your professional integrity and big-picture lens guide your work ethic in this regard.
