    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Agrium (Calgary, AB (Canada)) in January 2016.

    Interview

    Initial impromptu phone interview with HR lead to an invite for an in person interview with hiring manager. Was offered the job the next day. HR's hiring process was more stressful since the background check requires at least 3 references and takes 2+ weeks to be processed by some third party company. Did not expect a drug test but they planned for me to visit some wholesale locations (safety policy I assume).

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Agrium in April 2015.

    Interview

    Two interviews. One with the recruiter and the hiring manager. They had a template they were filling out during the interview so it was hard to make eye contact. Second interview was just with the hiring manager, this one was better because we had a real conversation. The second interview was more than a month after the first interview so I actually thought I was out of the running after 3 weeks with no news.

    Interview Questions

    • The questions were typical behavioral descriptive interview questions.   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Agrium.

    Interview

    First interview with HR rep. Ask basic questions like why do you want to work at agrium and why this position.
    If you are enrolled in co-op at your school. fairly easy.
    Then second interview scheduled with the manager over phone. It was a bit tricky. Mine lasted 30 mins. Main questions were, how did you resolve an issue with an employee at wor place? where do you see yourself 5 years from now? Why agrium? why ERP? Any experience with Sharepoint.
