    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Ingredion (Westchester, IL) in March 2017.

    Interview

    Total Disconnect! It always took a few days just to receive any type of reply. If communication up front is this bad, I can't even imagine what it's like on a day to day basis.

    Average Interview

Accommodated a hotel room for me also. Very professional set of two interviews with plant managers. 2 weeks went on after the interview. They called and offered me a position. I accepted.

    Interview

    Over the last 10 years i have been in contact with CPC/Ingredion. Every 6 to 9 months someone would call me to discuss an open position in the organization. I have interviewed at the facility twice and never had any feedback from the interview after visiting the facility for the interview. Every time I interviewed there were different people. The last interview, I was told that I must be older......really!!!!! I got old after interviewing for the last 10 years!!!! Also illegal to discuss age.

    Securities Operations Specialist Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Ingredion (Westchester, IL) in December 2016.

    Interview

    Phone interview followed by scheduled onsite interview with 4 persons. Schedule was for 1 hour with each individual. When I arrived it took 15 minutes to locate the person I was instructed to ask for who then said they had not been informed I was coming. After a one hour phone conference with the first person I spent 15-20 minutes with the next person. I was then told the next person was not available and asked to talk to someone with no relationship to of knowledge of the position being applied for. After 15-20 minutes of this that person went to find the person I had already been told was not available and did locate them in a meeting. Upon returning he offered to try a shuffle the schedules of the last two interviewers by switching the times. He began to make a call to do this and the person I had already spoken with came in again saying the one person was not available and that the last person would call me. He then escorted me out of the building. I found the experience very demeaning and rude.

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ weeks. I interviewed at Ingredion (Westchester, IL).

    Interview

    I had three phone interviews over the course of three weeks. The second person I interviewed with forgot about the interview and called 45 minutes late. The last person I interviewed with was not prepared and did not sound like she wanted to be interviewing me. She kept repeating at the end that she had no more questions and have a good weekend. I did not get a rejection call/email. I even emailed the hiring manager two weeks later about the status and heard nothing. This was a horrible interview process.t hey did not ask your basic behavior question, only on what did you in your last job and about my major in college.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Ingredion (Champaign, IL) in September 2016.

    Interview

    The overall recruitment process was very simple. I networked with the recruiters at Career Fair then applied online on their website as well as through our university job portal. I was invited to an interview shortly after, and the interview itself was a very typical behavioral interview which lasted about 30 minutes. There was only one interview on campus.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Ingredion (Chicago, IL).

    Interview

    Super unprofessional. After a series of interviews, I was given a loose verbal offer and told a written offer would be sent to me within two days. The letter never showed up and they wouldn't answer phone calls or respond to emails. They then re-posted the job a few days later. Beware of these guys.

    Two on-site interviews in Chicago, two phone calls, and a trip out to a 3rd party consulting firm to take an 8 hour lab examination. Highly unusual.

    Neutral Experience

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Ingredion in August 2016.

    Interview

    Initial phone screen with HR recruiter followed by phone screen with hiring manager. On-site interview scheduled several weeks later. The on-site interview process consisted of multiple interviews over a period of about 6 hours. Very robotic and outdated approach to interviewing. Questions were a good mix of work background and behavioral based.
