    I have been working at Cargill (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Private corporation with 1400 facilities throughout the world. Descendent pay and benefits. Works well with the community. Promotes Safety first.

    Cons

    Long hours, a lot of responsibilities, on call 24 hours, change supervisors on an average of every 2-3 years, change job responsibilities.

    Advice to Management

    Communication and team work are the key to success. Lead by example in stead of talking down to others. Know the job before trying to explain it to someone else.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5+ weeks. I interviewed at Cargill (Chicago, IL) in August 2015.

    Interview

    The process took 1 month+. I applied on July 3rd and got an email July 16th requesting a phone interview. I had the phone interview July 17th, and on July 27th i got an email stating that i should go for an in site interview on August 3rd. After the interview, I was offered the position August 12th :)

    Interview Questions

    • It was 100% behavioral questions. Each interviewer's question was the same, and they were reading it from a sheet of paper. There were about 6 questions in all, but here are the ones which i felt were difficult. What advice will you have for the management of your previous job? Tell me about a time when lack of accountability prevented the completion of a task? What did you do?   1 Answer
