Operations Interview

Positive Experience
Difficult Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Cargill (Minneapolis, MN) in March 2011.

Interview

Process started with a call from HR, followed by a phone interview that lasted about 45 minutes. A week later I got another phone call from HR telling me the phone interview went well. Two weeks later I was sent to the Cargill HQ in Minneapolis, MN. There was a brief company orientation, and HR gave all of the candidates their itinerary for the day which consisted of 3 seperate interviews with the leadership team. Each interview was about 45 minutes or so. Upon leaving we were given a bag with the company magazine, benefit highlights, and other documents further explaining some of the Cargill BU's. One week later I got an offer contingent on completion of a background check, drug screen, and visit to the facility. I start in May.

Overall, the interview process was smooth, and professional. Excited to get started!

    I spoke with them at the career fair and had a really nice conversation. I received an offer for an interview later that evening with a link to the online application and responded the next morning with my availability. They never got back to me and I called and emailed multiple times. I just got a rejection email after almost two months.

    Application

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

    Interview

    -A brief behavioural based interview.
    -Asked numerous introspective questions
    -Interviewer was patient with personal recollection and time to formulate proper answers
    -Interviewer didn't seem as concerned by the accuracy of the answer but more of what I learned in the process

    -The hardest part was not knowing which question was coming next, so that I could think ahead to a memory or situation which would be pertenant to the upcoming question; as most of the questions were about what happened in the past, etc.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 days. I interviewed at Cargill in January 2012.

    Interview

    This is a two interview minimum before hire company. The entire process was conducted in a professional and well organized manner where it did not take too much time. There were standard interview questions asked which you would hear from almost any other hiring place of business. There are some " tell me about a time questions" asked and I advise a potential candidate to research these questions online so they can think of some examples ahead of time.

    Interview Questions

    • Do you work better in a team or as an individual?   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    There was no negotiation in my case and that would be due to I had no prior experience with that particuliar job but, the pay is very competitive.
