    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Cargill (Hopkins, MN).

    Interview

    Lengthy at best-- almost like they didn't know what they were looking for in a candidate or quite frankly how to interview someone who is not an internal candidate. Questions were all over the board. Met with multiple people on multiple occasions. Initially they valued and understood how work from outside of Cargill translated into skills to be used inside the company, but after years inside, you'll come to find that nobody actually cares what volunteer or other work you do outside of the company. If you are a talented person, do not waste your time here. You'll end up with mediocre pay with a ton of mediocre/tedious tasks to fill you day to day schedule.
