Senior Financial Analyst Interview

Senior Financial Analyst
Decatur, IL

I applied through college or university and the process took 6 weeks - interviewed at ADM.

Interview Details – The process included two rounds of interviews. First, an initial interview on campus, for about 45 minutes, with a financial manager and a senior finance executive. The first interview included behavioral questions, as well as some basic corporate finance and accounting questions.

In about one week, I was called for a second round of interview, at ADM offices. The second interview included 3 interviews with six different people, two at a time, a case analysis, and a group presentation.

Interview Question – During the second round of interviews, the case interview was the most difficult part because of the time constraints, about one hour, and some unknown terminology, not necessarily finance oriented.   Answer Question

Systems Administrator Interview

Systems Administrator
Decatur, IL

I applied online and the process took 4 months - interviewed at ADM in May 2009.

Interview Details – Be prepared for a very, very slow process. The bureaucracy moves like a handicapped sloth. Lots of lag time between contacts and before offer made.

Interview Question – This is a very vanilla process depending upon the interviewer. Most of the questions are standard and not really difficult if you have ever interviewed with a large company before.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – There was no negotiation and the pay wasn't great but it was reasonable for the EXPECTED job duties. Be prepared for the job to change at the drop of a hat.

Lab Tech Interview

Lab Tech
Cedar Rapids, IA

I applied online and the process took 5 weeks - interviewed at ADM in November 2012.

Interview Details – I received a call to set up a phone interview about a week after submitting an application online. The phone interview was with the HR manager and head of the department. I was asked to come to the plant for an interview 3-4 weeks later with the same people. The interview process is pretty casual.

Interview Question – Can a supervisor make you work safer?
If the production line encountered some problem and sent over samples to be tested, would you process those samples or do the routine samples first?
