    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Cargill.

    Interview

    I was interviewed on campus for a internship in the fall of my junior year of college. The internship was 3 months during the summer between my junior and senior years. Towards the end of the internship they notify all the interns if they want them back for a full time job. You don't actually get placed within a business unit until the spring of your senior year, but they guarantee you a job. There was no interview once I was placed so the only real interview I had was the on-campus one for an internship, although of course the internship is a extended interview for a full time position.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Cargill in May 2013.

    Interview

    I applied online but had a friend who had worked there recommended me to the immediate hiring manager. The interview questions were fairly easy. They focused a lot on behavior questions: what if, tell me a time when. Team work seemed to be a big factor. Be ready to answer your personal achievements as well.
     They did not specify the time they needed me to start working so I told them I could start on September when I got back to school (the interview took place in May). They did call me back but by that time I got another internship and declined the offer.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Cargill in November 2010.

    Interview

    The interview was the easiest interview I have ever had. It consisted of two individuals interviewing me. They asked real generic questions as in almost any interview. The question they put the most emphasis on was when they asked to describe what you think is important in a leader. Only one interview was needed to receive the offer.

    Accounting Interview

    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Cargill (Mechelen (Belgium)).

    Interview

    Completely unprofessional!! I applied online for an accounting position located in Belgium and a week later I was contacted by HR to have a phone interview with the talent acquisition located in Mechelen, Belgium. The day of the interview, the talent acquisition sent me an email 2 hours before to cancel it as an offer was already sent to another candidate. It was a huge disappointment to see how the hiring process was managed.
