    Difficult Interview

    Application

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

    Interview

    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. I could see the notes they took on my at the career fair, so that sparked some nerves and uncertainty.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Cargill (Wayzata, MN) in June 2017.

    Interview

    Applied online in May, then talked to some current employees for referral. First phone screening interview with HR for about 45 minutes, then onsite interview with the hiring manager and another 3 interviewers, 45 minutes each. Yet in the end that position was closed due to internal structure change. Total process took about 2 months. HR did a great job keeping me interested and encouraged me to apply for future opportunities.

    The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Cargill.

    Interview

    I applied to the position and was contacted by hr. Had a phone interview with them and then a few days later received an email for an interview. It was very different, I came in and took a small math test while I waited. Then I met with two managers and they more discussed the plant and the open positions than asked questions. Then I was given a tour by a third manager.
