    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Monsanto Company (Saint Louis, MO).

    Interview

    The entire process took ~2 months from the time I applied online until I was informed another candidate was selected. A phone interview was set up via e-mail about 1 month after I applied online, and an in person interview took place about 2 weeks after that. Very few technical questions were asked....it was almost entirely behavioral based questioning. I think just about every question I heard can be found if you Google behavioral interview questions and look through a few big lists.

    I applied online – interviewed at Monsanto Company.

    Interview

    First got a call from a recruiter which was followed by the hiring manager to set up the date for on site interview. The day before the interview was the dinner with the hiring manager and the candidates. The interview was with two different panels and it was relatively easy. But all the candidates were lacking a key experience in the field they are looking to hire so they decided to re-advertise.

    Interview

    It was a phone interview. First, the recruiter tell you some basic information about the company; then, let you Introduce yourself; next, ask several behavior questions; also some questions about your resume, at last, let you ask questions. Overall, it was done under a very relaxed atmosphere.
