    Account Manager Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Cargill.

    Interview

    The hiring process was fairly smooth and took about 2 months from application to starting date. The process started with a phone screening with the hiring manager, we covered basic questions about why the interest and initial reasons for fit. The phone screening I believe was more about fit, filling out the picture already framed in by the resume. The in person interview consisted of 4 people, an hour each; it was very scripted and well organized but seemed almost cold. Later on I found most interviewers stick to the corporate questions because HR has compiled a detailed list of situational based questions. Afterwards the typical offer and negotiations ensued.

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Cargill (Columbus, OH) in September 2017.

    Talked to recruiter at career fair, was called for an interview later that night, and interviewed the next day. The interviewer was friendly and was the same person I spoke to at the career fair.
