Seed Process Engineering Co-op Interview

Seed Process Engineering Co-op

I applied through college or university and interviewed at Monsanto Company.

Interview Details – I talked to an engineering leader in my college's career fair and submitted my resume. A month later, I was notified that the engineering group is interviewing me. I was asked to visit their main campus in Saint Louis. I was interviewed by three people on site in Saint Louis along with other candidates. The interview was rather casual I feel. The interviewer are really friendly and approachable. The questions they asked are very typical behavioral questions and they requested me to go through my experience and resume.

Process Engineer Interview

Process Engineer
Muscatine, IA

I applied through college or university and the process took a day - interviewed at Monsanto Company.

Interview Details – Monsanto conducts behavior based interviews. The interview questions are selected such that the answers provided should give an idea of how someone is likely to behave in certain applicable situations. The thought is that the best predictor of future behavior is past behavior. An example question would be "Please desribe a time when you didn't get along with a fellow employee and how you handled that situation."

Interview Question – I didn't find any of the questions particularly difficult, as you simply to reflect on past experience and tell your story to provide an idea of who you are as a person. Another example question would be "Have you been given a project which you didn't fully understand?" Assuming so, what did you do to better understand the project?   Answer Question
