    Met at Career Fair, had a 30 minute interview. The questions were pretty standard, with a decent amount of repetition. Most were personality questions and responses to different scenarios.

    Programmer/Analyst Interview

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Land O'Lakes.

    Interview

    actually had two recruiters that submitted my resume, back in 2001. That made it hard but it worked out. I interviewed and had the job by the end of the week. The programming skills I had were in very short demand, so I think they were quite happy to find me. I don't think my experience is quite the normal any more, with things taking more time and interviewing with more people.

    Negotiation

    I got an offer that was just a bit more than I had been making. Was unemployed at the time, and was happy to get offer. Asked for an extra week of vacation and got it.

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Land O'Lakes (Spencer, WI) in October 2014.

    Interview

    Physical including lab work, urinalysis, and 50 lb lift test at the Marshfield Clinic, which took at least two hours. I then had a written test which took two hours asking personality and IQ questions. The interview with a panel including the plant manager and human resources. It was a very tedious process. The orientation was quite lengthy, which took three days. The overall experience of the interview was very poor. They spent too much time looking for the right person. That place is a revolving door with poor leadership. It's a terrible place to work.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at Land O'Lakes (Minneapolis, MN) in September 2014.

    Interview

    I applied through my university. Initial submissions included resume drop and online application. Only one round of resumes ensued, yet you have 2 30-minute interviews totaling 60 minutes. One interview consists of a 2-on-1 with a supply chain recruiter and an associate in the TAP Rotational Program. The second one consists of a 1-on-1 with a higher-level manager (perhaps someone managing plants in a given region). All questions are behavioral, and some questions overlap between the two interviews. However, the order in which the interviews are administered can change with each candidate.

    In accordance with Minnesota law, all additional tests (drug, background) were completed after extending an offer.
