Easy Interview

Application

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Monsanto Company.

Interview

I am still in the process of being interviewed. The two interviewers asked questions from a script. They did deviate from the script whenever they showed interest in the initial answer. Extremely friendly -- I could see the teamwork between the two. It was actually the best demonstration of using scripted questions as guidelines, rather than automated call-and-response. The questions clearly prescribed to the saying that past performance is predictive of future behavior -- they were all "Tell me about a time when..."

Interview Questions

  • Since they all pointed to past performance, they were relatively easy and predictable.   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Monsanto Company (Saint Louis, MO) in November 2013.

    Interview

    I applied online and was contacted by HR for a short phone interview. It was more of a conversation as opposed to an interview. The HR rep informed me that they were recommending me to the Hiring manager and would be in touch. A few days later I received an email for an interview onsite. It was a Panel style interview with 2-4 individuals. Interview consisted of the hiring manager and several team members.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Monsanto Company (Bengaluru (India)) in December 2010.

    Interview

    I did apply on their careers homepage in Sept 2010 and got a call from the HR (Rachana Saxena) after a month. Once I cleared the first round of interviewing by Mr. Srinivas Gunturu on 2nd Dec 2010, the HR team told please wait for next step of communication from me. Till now (18th Jan 2011), I have not heard anything from them. I even 7 to 8 mail to both the interviewer and to the HR but no response at all. This is such annoying thing that being such a very big MNC, the cannot even communicate back to me!! :(
