Procurement Co-Op Interview

Procurement Co-Op

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

Interview Details – I met with Monsanto recruiters through a University Career Fair. In my interview they were very friendly. They are trying to see the best in you and not the worse. As far as questions go, they were all the typical interview questions. All of them were behavioral questions. Tell a time when... Explain a time when...

Interview Question – The most difficult question was "Name a time you failed to turn in a project in on time. What was the outcome and how did you go about the situation?"   Answer Question

Interviewed at Monsanto Company

Interview Details – Went to career fair and talked to a rep there. He was decently friendly, difficult to read. I was given a follow up, but so were a ton of other people so that didn't really mean too much. I went and that went fine. I don't expect any more follow than that.

Biologist I Interview

Biologist I

I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at Monsanto Company.

Interview Details – Applied online via a staffing agency. Had a panel interview with three senior scientists (my would be managers). They asked me questions about my former research projects. They really wanted me to elaborate on my skills. They all talked about their work and goals while I sat and listened. At times it was awkward and tense because my research was very different than theirs. The only behavioral questions were ones that related to working with others. Everyone has to get along and they really want people who are outgoing and easy to work with.

Interview Question – Describe a different route you would have taken with your previous research. What is the organic name for colchicine.   Answer Question

Reason for Declining – I declined the offer because after the three hour interview I decided that I wasn't the best candidate, even though I was offered the job.
