    Occupational Health Administrative Assistant Senior Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Fresno, CA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Cargill Meat Solutions (Fresno, CA).

    Interview

    I applied to several positions on their website, looking for an entry level engineering related position, so I could get some experience besides my internship, since I got a bachelors. I took an online assessment. I got called for an interview for this position (that required only high school, to be bilingual -which I am- and to have some experience with OSHAS, but it wasn't required).

    I was interviewed by 3 people: two HR and a nurse, she was the one I would have reported to. I think the nurse and the HR guy liked me, but not the HR lady. She pretty much discarded me right there, and I don't know why, since I was on time, dressed professionally, I answered pretty straight forward, I had some occupational health experience in the food industry, researched the company and made good questions at the end, I even made them laugh and and all that. I was pretty confident that I could land that job and it seemed like it during the interview (at least with the other two).

    I guess I got called because I was overqualified, and I feel like I didn't got the job because of that. Or maybe some catty stuff going on, since that the minute she saw me she was totally checking me out (I could be intimidating to other women because of my looks) and during the interview she was sticking to the script pretty much, while the other two were relaxed and interacting more with me (like trying to get to know me, specially the nurse). The HR guy and the nurse where going to give me the tour, but she deny it to me (why waste their time if I wasn't the one, kinda vibe) and she tried to hint them on why I shouldn't take the tour and the other two seemed pretty clueless on why not. I guess she was the boss. If that is the case, is sad how women are like to other women.

    Process Engineer Interview

    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Cargill Meat Solutions (Provo, UT) in January 2015.

    Interview

    After reviewing my resume they emailed me to schedule an interview. It was coordinated through the career center on campus. There were two men from the plant, one who works in operations the other who is in charge of the engineers. It was a pretty standard interview with both of them taking turns asking questions.

    Interview Questions

    • They were very standard. Most of the questions were based off of my resume. They looked over it and asked about my experiences with this or that and how I solved problems doing this or that. There wasn't any sort of behavioral questions. It seemed as if they just wanted to know if I'd be a good fit for the position not so much for the company.   Answer Question

    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Cargill Meat Solutions.

    Interview

    I was given a tour of the plant and then interviewed with 10 managers. 5 different interviews with 2 managers per interview.I was at the plant for the entire day. They had me drive to the location and paid for the hotel, meals, and all of my gas. Cargill takes care of their people, as long as those people are willing to work for them.

    Interview Questions

    • Some of the interviews were taken very seriously and were very typical interview questions. Then some of the others seemed like they were trying to intimidate me, like they were trying to get me to confess to something...those were very awkward interviews.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    This was the first job out of college. I did not even think of trying to negotiate. I later found out that I could have probably been able to negotiate a higher salary or more help with my moving expense.

    Data Warehouse Support Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Wichita, KS
    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Cargill Meat Solutions (Wichita, KS) in July 2014.

    Interview

    Hiring process is a joke.
    Manager do not care about the company because they only do phone interview and do not care they want the person or not. They wanted a fresher than actual experience person.
    I would consider a position where you actually give face to face interview so you can survive better.

    Interview Questions

    • It is a Joke to work with them.
      To be honest. I would like to work in better cities like New York, NJ or any east coast.
      I ask the readers do you really want to work for such an under developed state like Kansas when you worked in East Coast like New York, New Jersey etc., ?  
      Answer Question

    Negotiation

    There is no negotiation. If you are good in politics then you can survive.
    If you are innocent. It's up to you whom you choose as a career.

    Here is the question I ask to readers:

    Do you really want to work for such an under developed state like Kansas and in unprofessional environment like Cargill when you worked in East Coast like New York, New Jersey etc., ?
