Application

I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at Cargill (Minneapolis, MN) in October 2014.

Interview

Interview was pretty staright forward. I have an initial phone screening that was about 45 minds. Then got invited to a "talent day" where I interviewed with 3 managers for 45 minutes each. Finally, I will be meeting with a hiring manager to discuss the details of the position. It seems that their hiring staff is independent of the firm, so something aren't in synced.

    Application

    The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Cargill (Wayzata, MN) in August 2008.

    Interview

    The interviews were very straight forward in terms of assessing fit. The questions were aimed at exploring my interest in leadership and general management, which became more intense from the first to the second round. There were also two cases for each round. The cases were very straight forward. The series first case was focused on ideation (first round). Second round cases were focused on geo-political issues and profitability. The interviewers were reluctant to connect with me and I found them very difficult to read. This arms-length approach seems to pervade the Cargill approach to people management.

    Interview Questions

    • Why do you believe hunger exists in the world?   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    I did not negotiate the offer, which was a mistake. Finding housing and healthcare on my own proved to be pricier than I expected and made the offer less competitive than it did at first blush.
