Operator Interview

Operator
Council Bluffs, IA

I applied in-person - interviewed at Bunge North America in February 2010.

Interview Details – The interview itself was a very easy laid back interview. I interviewed with the H.R. lady and the manager of the department I would be working in. They asked simple questions such as why do you want to work for our company and where do you see yourself in five years. Then took me on a tour of the plant. Then they called me the next day with a job offer.

Interview Question – All the questions were easy ones you would expect to be asked at any interview.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – No negotiations, all employees salaries are the same it doesn't matter how long you have worked there you'll make the same as a person that has been there ten years

Accounting Interview

Accounting
Kearny, NJ

I applied in-person and the process took 5 days - interviewed at Bunge North America in April 2009.

Interview Details – A group from corporate office came in and interviewed our whole facility. Everyone I remember speaking to was pleasant and did everything to put us at ease. They were friendly and quite a few had a good sense of humor. We were each interviewed personally by 2 interviewers. I enjoyed talking to quite a few of the group. They also had a group meeting with everyone and explained what was happening and what we could expect in the near future. They really made everything quite clear to us . It was a very pleasant experience. My advice to anyone being interviewed is to be yourself and be honest.

Interview Question – how did everyone get along   View Answer

Negotiation Details – Take all aspects into account. Starting salary isn't everything. Will there be benefits, vacation pay, medical insurance, is there room for growth

Senior Accountant Interview

Senior Accountant
Miami, FL

I applied through a recruiter and the process took a day - interviewed at Bunge North America in September 2009.

Interview Details – It was gruesome. You have to spend 4 hours interviewing with half the staff. You would think it was to be the CEO of the company. I interviewed with about 5 people. They all were very upfront with me and informed me that the working hours are very long. Doesn't seem to be well balanced with work/life.

Interview Question – Whether I had an issue with the working hours.   View Answer
