    Driver Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Greeley, CO
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Agrium (Greeley, CO) in March 2015.

    Interview

    Called me up and asked if I could come in to discuss my resume. Went over resume and decided that I had enough experience driving and proceeded to hire me. Promised a certain number of hours during their busy season, however, that all changed due to weather over the region which slowed the business down, in turn, lessoning the hours for hourly employees.

    Strategic Sourcing Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Newark, NJ
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Agrium (Newark, NJ) in February 2015.

    Interview

    First: Screening call with a recruiter from Calgary, AB, Canada. Second was a screening interview with the same recruiter and the hiring manager. Third: they asked me to fly to Colorado for a face to face and then asked me to lay out the money for the trip, claiming they would reimburse me later. I declined and then they agreed to arrange for airfare but then claimed they did not have master agreements with hotels and rental car companies despite the fact that they directed me to stay at the Embassy Suites in Loveland, CO and use Avis for my car rental at Denver. When I declined to pay for these expenses upfront, they cancelled the interview.

    Interview Questions

    • None: face to face interview cancelled before I flew to CO. Never in my career has a hiring company asked me to pay my way first and seek reimbursement. This is a classic case of a company using the other guy's money for "float" before they pay their bills. If you have to travel to interview with Agrium, make sure they pick up the tab.   Answer Question

    Senior Process Engineer Interview

    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Agrium (Pocatello, ID).

    Interview

    phone screen with HR and the engineering team. i passed that with flying colors and was flown out to lovely ID. that is when it was apparent that they didnt expect their number one candidate to be a person of color. number two, the HR lady made it evident that the two members had been out drinking and fishing. i had to laugh at that. they tried their best to appear open, but i could see through it. the questions were general problem solving questions, questions about my military background etc. it was at lunch when they rushed out nearly leaving me in the process! the HR lady was like "hurry you better catch them?" really?! what a professional comment! and yes i was being sarcastic. i realized that this wasnt a fit, not to mention how the waitress in the diner was reacting to me. honestly i dont think the HR lady was happy there either. she made the comment that she wasnt from around that area.

What he and other company personel stated that finding a Class"A" CDL driver with a HAZMAT endorsement and a spotless record was not that easy to find. They felt fortunate to have found one.

    I received an email for a phone interview, which was standard. It was a conference call with recruiter and 2 supervisors of the Denver office. The interview was in depth regarding my experience and behavioral questions and took about 1 hour. I was then invited to fly out for a face to face interview which they financed as I had not yet moved. It was a 3:1 interview and was mostly a recap of the phone interview. I was given a tour as well. One week later, I received notice that while I performed very well, they went with someone local.
