ConAgra has a strong and well-organized internship program. Many people went out of their way to ensure that my internship experience was positive.

At times there was little guidance and many workers were too busy to devote time and attention to the interns.

Advice to Potential Interns

ConAgra is a wonderful company with a wide range of opportunities and room for growth.

Great summer internship for career and personal growth

4.8 of 5 stars

Omaha, NE | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN

Uppers

There were many people interested in helping and aiding you with your work and with any other questions regarding life, work, and school.

Downers

I don't think the internship had cons.

Advice to Potential Interns

ConAgra helps you move out to Omaha and set up and paid for the housing- which is helpful in a short term internship. I felt very welcomed right away and was able to meet other interns. The business peer mentor program was very helpful for me.

Advice to Management

I think that the internship program is very developed. If the mid summer and end of summer reviews with managers could be pushed more, it would be helpful. Hours and compensation were good, although I felt like I had more work that 40 hours could accomplish during some weeks and was not allowed to work for overtime pay. I also felt like some other departments had interns that did not do much work but were able to get overtime and benefits from traveling to other locations.

Advice to Potential Interns

This is a great company who hires from within. If you would like to get your foot in the door, this is the way to do it. They will treat you like royalty, give you good advice, and allow you to gain valuable experience in the field. I'm really happy I chose to do my internship with ConAgra Foods this summer.

Sample Interview Questions

1. If you witnessed someone not locking out a piece of equipment what would you do?

2. Why do you want to work for us?

I loved all the planned events they put on for us. They also provided free housing and a very competitive hourly rate.

Some of the things got a little repetitive, but that's how I imagine most jobs to be.

Get involved in as much as you can. I loved the employee wellness classes.

Omaha, NE | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN

Uppers

The great support structure provided by ConAgra.

Downers

Sometimes it felt difficult to investigate other areas of the company.

Advice to Potential Interns

Go in expecting to work very hard. The internship at ConAgra is not a "go and fetch me coffee" type of intership. You work hard on projects that have meaningful impact.

Sample Interview Questions

Where do you see yourself going in 5 years? What do you hope to get out of this internship?

Advice to Management

I was uncertain of how breaks were to work at the beginning of the internship, that needed some calrification

Experience provided me with versatile skills to apply in future employment.

The best aspect was that I got to go to a different lab each week.. I learned something new everyday and I learned all parts of the company throughout my internship.

The day did not always follow my agenda/schedule, but I am flexible and adapted quickly to any changes made.

Be personable, have good listening and communication skills, have a passion for food science, take good notes, be a hard worker, make an impressive first impression, stand out from the rest of the candidates, and show enthusiasm and interest in the position.
