    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Creve Coeur, MO
    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 6+ weeksinterviewed at Monsanto Company in May 2014.

    Interview Details

    HR stated I had to "pre-interview" with manager before putting an online application. Had heard from others they do not want people applying on-line because it would show how favored certain groups were at the company.

    Interview Questions
    • Questions were standard behavioral questions. I met all the posted standards for the position and was told I did a great job in the interview. Job went to a younger candidate with little or no experience in the area, a highly technical field. When I asked, they stated it was because he had field experience, even though this was not on the qualifications list. This is typical for Monsanto interviews.   Answer Question

    Application Details

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

    Interview Details

    Met at a University career fair and talked with a rep there. He was very friendly and easy to hold a conversation with, although there was a girl there too who was less so. I was offered an interview the next day, which was set up by a phone call later in the afternoon after meeting the first time. As an intern, the interview was mostly behavioral, and most of the questions were fairly typical.

    Interview Questions
    • Describe a time when you made a mistake or let someone down.
      When was a time that you were a leader?
      What makes you want to do (insert career path here)?
