    Accountant Clerk Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Cargill.

    Interview

    Applied for the job and I got an email about a week later scheduling an interview for 2 pm. She ended up calling at 225 saying she had a meeting.

    The interviewer was from another country so there was definitely a language barrier so neither of us understood each other well. Definitely felt like I was talking to someone in a calm center because it sounded exactly like she was reading the questions and gave me no feedback on any answers unlike normal interviews which feel more like a convo.

    When it came to point to ask if I had any questions. I asked her a question and her answer was, "OK have a good day and she hung up." Never had any follow up. Never even got an automated email saying they went with anyone else.

    If they conduct interviews so unprofessionally I can't imagine what working for them is like.

    Accounting Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Minneapolis, MN
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Cargill (Minneapolis, MN) in November 2015.

    Interview

    phone screen was conducted from another country even though I applied within the U.S. for a U.S. based job. The interviewer was 20 minutes late, difficult to understand and hung up on me in the middle of a question. Very unprofessional. This experience influenced me NOT to apply for more jobs at this company.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Cargill in November 2015.

    Completed a phone interview after 10 days from applying. Phone interview was simple nothing too challenging. Why do you want the job? What makes you suited for the job? Flew me into Minneapolis after that for a 'talent day'. They fed us and put us through 3 rounds of interviews with current merchants. Basic technical questions with some scripted ones.
