Average Interview

Application

I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Cargill (Ames, IA) in February 2014.

Interview

The interview took place the day after the Engineering Career Fair at Iowa State University. The 30 minute on-campus interview consisted of friendly conversation including STAR type questions for the interview. Overall, a very relaxed and simple process. I found the environment at the plants I interned at to be very similar. Down to earth people and a friendly environment.
