    Entry Level Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. I interviewed at Cargill.

    Interview

    The interviewer was rude and clearly was not looking to hire anyone. I was interested in the Cargill locations, but they were not willing to give very much information. I am a very qualified candidate who had 6 offers for engineering roles when I graduated college, and this was a terrible experience. Wasted my time. I called and told them I was not interested that night.

    Strategic Sourcing Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Cargill in October 2014.

    Interview

    I applied at college. They give me the interview in the next day. I went to the interview and they did not continue the interview process because I require the sponsorship. They should let me know before I go to the interview. This experience is horrible. No respect at all. They just let me go when they know I don't have so called "green card" or "permanent work authorization". I totally understand that their HR does not want to invest any resources or time on foreigners, even talented foreigners.

    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Cargill (Waterloo, ON (Canada)) in February 2017.

    Interview

    There were two people in the interview room, had a clipboard to fill in including all your info, answers to questions ect. It seemed as though the interviews are procedurall, so overall there wasn't much room to connect with interviewers. They asked around 3-4 behavioral questions, as well as tell me about yourself and definately what do you know about Cargill.

    Sales Manager Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Cargill (Wayzata, MN) in February 2017.

    Interview

    Applied and had a phone call the next day from a recruiter and set up a phone interview quickly. Was very impressed how fast it was. Then after the phone interview no word after the recruiter had said it went extremely well with her and I would be set up within a week for face to face interviews. It was nearly 3 weeks with no communication as the email address I had no longer worked. I got a call from a higher level recruiter saying the person I interviewed with no longer worked there and she was handling. She apologized and set up a face to face a week later with 6 different individuals. The interviews were in pairs and for 1 hour each (3 hours total) and were very professional. Since then it has been nearly a month and I've sent emails and voice mails to the recruiter for some feedback and how the process was going. I have heard nothing and found out through a contact that I didn't get the job but never got it officially from anyone at Cargill. I was very disappointed that they never took the time to give feedback and/or to let me know the status of the job.
