    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took a dayinterviewed at Land O'Lakes.

    Interview Details

    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. Main concern was about dealing with people and managerial skills. Got the offer within a week of interview. Very Prompt in whole process.

    Application Details

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

    Interview Details

    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 Details
    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.

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Land O'Lakes.

    Interview Details

    There were 4 interviews with various management and human resource. It was dragged on and interviewers were late or postponed their appointment with you. Had to fill out my application online two times because of a software issue and was making things difficult. This was what I thought to be a great career but I was greatly disappointing.

    Interview Questions
    • Questions were worded to mean the same like they were badgering you to open up something that you did previously that wasn't a positive result.   View Answer
    Negotiation Details
    I did my homework about my wages thanks to this and other sites similar. I was told they would match that wage based on additional yearly bonuses but these bonuses never happened. Unknown to me my job title was changed so I was kept from advancing to higher pay after creating this new title corporate red flags went away!

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Land O'Lakes.

    Interview Details

    First step: Phone Interview
    Second step: 5 Panel behavioral questions. You interview with 5 people, one at a time, lasting about 2-3 hours. All based on past experiences. It's very easy to lose focus during interview and the team seemed like the only work there for the money.

    Interview Questions
    • The interview process is tiring and not effective. Sitting for 2-3 hours and being asked questions by 5+ people one at a time can be challenging, tiring and confusing. They didn't offer water or any refreshment.   Answer Question
