    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Cargill in February 2017.

    Interview

    I was contacted in December by HR asking me if I was interested in a position at a certain location. In January HR called scheduling a phone interview with the Plant Manager which lasted about 30-40 minutes. About 2 weeks later I was contacted and offered an on-site interview in February. The on-site interview was done at the same time as the other candidate - we were given a plant tour, then had individual interviews with a panel of 3 engineers/supervisors, and then went to lunch. I was contacted a week later with the job offer. Overall, a really great experience. HR was organized and the interview team was really friendly. There was a list of behavioral questions the interviewers asked, but the panel was laid back about them. One of the interviewers even said "oh this is a hard one, I'm not sure I would have a good answer for this" which put me at ease.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Cargill in March 2011.

    Interview

    I submitted my resume to Cargill at a career fair. Later, I got a call for a follow up interview. Then had a 3:1 interview. It seemed a bit intimidating at first, but it turned out to be very relaxing and fair. The questions were pretty typical interview question.

    Cargill seems to be very professional. Other key points to note is that they are very involved with community service and really seem to promote safety throughout the company. I was very impressed with their safety policies.
