    Interview Details

    It was a behavior interview and the procedure was not painful. They asks several general questions and there are no technical questions. I went to two rounds including the onsite ones and all of them are behavior questions. Just makes sure your resume is good.

    Interview Details

    Phone interview. Basically the Hiring Manger went through everything on the job description and asked for detailed examples. Also a mixture of behavior and technical interview questions. The Hiring Manager is overall nice and seems knowledgeable. But it didn't work out because my experience does not fit the position very well.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university – 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.

    Intermediate Process Engineer Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Monsanto Company in July 2014.

    Interview Details

    The interview process was rather odd in my experience in that no technical questions were asked at any level of interviewing. Purely behavioral interview with questions that I don't feel gave any indication of how I would fit with the culture of the company or my ability to perform the duties required of the position.

    From the phone screening by an outside reqruiter to the onsite interview and eventual notification that I would not be hired the process took about 4 months. A rather long time but I suppose it's not out of the ordinary if they were being particularly picky.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took a dayinterviewed 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 Questions
    • 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
