    Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Cargill.

    Interview

    Fully qualified, resume almost exactly what they were needing with 20 years experience. HR initially reached out and wanted to set up interview then never responded. Very unprofessional. Tried several times as well as called the Cargill recruiter and after he initially reached out then disappeared.

    Human Resources Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Lincoln, NE
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Cargill (Lincoln, NE) in August 2017.

    Interview

    After submitting my application, I was contacted late one evening (after 8:00 p.m.) by e-mail asking for a telephone interview the following day, to screen for the position. I was disconnected during the call twice, from their end. It was an offshore interviewer, who spoke English as a second language. I had to restate, repeat, and change vocabulary and responses to a more basic level on nearly EVERY question. The interview was very common and would have been easy, had the interviewer SPOKEN ENGLISH at an intermediate or higher level. I felt it was discriminatory and a poor hiring practice to have HR interviews with non-native speakers, who had difficulty understanding and interpreting responses. It would be like a Spanish native who just was legalized for work having an interview with a former English teacher! I'm rating difficult just because I had to speak at a low level and restate my answers in a very simple, unimpressive manner, due to the interviewer being Asian.

    Applied online for Sourcing Analyst, received phone interview with HR within a week. A week later I was offered a face-to-face interview with the recruiting team on Senior Sourcing Analyst.

    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.
