    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Cargill in September 2016.

    Interview

    Next day interview after career fair. Pretty straight forward. Two people interviewed me with a set list of questions. Mainly behavioral and situational. They were very easy to talk to and didn't ask me too hard of questions. I felt like it was more to get a feel for me and how much I knew about their company.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Cargill.

    Interview

    I received a phone call to schedule a phone interview. I waited for weeks whether I made it to the second part of the interview, but all my waiting was all in vain. It is rude how they did not notify me regarding my application status. I just assumed because I did not hear any communication from the HR person after that phone call.
