    My trainee selection process was diferent from the regular one: There was four eliminatory interviews: the first one was with HR which asked for personal description, history, experience and future expactations. The second, third and fourth was with directors from diferent areas that asked about my pros and cons, how I acted under pressure and made lots of questions about economy, finance and business in general. They didnt test any deep technical skills but focused on the logical thinking.

    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Louis Dreyfus Group in March 2010.

    Interview

    It was a first interview with 2 personnes at the beggining. Firstly, they wanted to discuss on specific points of my resume, they didn't ask me general questions like" tell me about you" or "could you discribe your previous experience". Later, a third personne came, and we continued a conversationnal interview. The second part of the interview was technical and logical questions.

    Merchant Trainee Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took a week. I interviewed at Louis Dreyfus Group in February 2010.

    Interview

    I applied through my University's career services department, and I got a call asking to schedule an interview. I wasn't able to take it, and so it went to voice mail. When I called back, I didn't get a response, so I left a voice mail, but didn't hear back for another two days, when I called again, and left another voice mail. This indicated to me that their HR person was pretty stretched out, or that undergraduate recruiting wasn't particularly important to them.
    I was interviewed by a relatively young employee who had been in the company for only a couple years. Many firms like to send mid-management employees when they are serious about hiring, but it may be the case that this person was exceptionally smart and moving up the rank and file of the company. I got the impression that the company structure is pretty flat and that LD is good about mentoring its' new employees. It was refreshing take at corporate America.

J'ai reçu une réponse deux semaines plus tard.
