Syngenta Seeds Interview Questions & Reviews
Getting an Interview
Logistics Interview (Neutral Experience; Easy Interview)
I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Syngenta Seeds.
Interview Details – Contacted by their third party recruiter. She just emailed me an interview time and person to ask for. That person wasn't even there. Ended up interviewing with 3 people, one who was only there a short time.
Research Associate Interview (Positive Experience; Difficult Interview)
I applied online and the process took 4 weeks - interviewed at Syngenta Seeds in April 2011.
Interview Details – Syngenta has the interview process very well organized. The entire process took quite a bit of time, but the company communicated well. The initial 2 interviews were on the phone and were fairly short. The on-site interviews were one hour each. There were 2 meetings with groups of interviewers. The process is difficult, but not unpleasant. I felt free to ask questions and developed a good feel for the position and the people interviewing me. An example of a situational question is describing an experience managing others. Most situation questions were directly related to the position.Work safety was stressed more than I have ever heard a company mention it before. The frequency had me worried about being reprimanded for the smallest infraction if I did get the job. I got the perception that the work environment was okay, but that most employees were putting in their time and not really excited about what they do.
Interview Question – Describe a situation where you trained subordinates on safety guidelines and made sure they followed through with those guidelines. View Answer
