    Data Scientist Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Saint Louis, MO
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Monsanto Company (Saint Louis, MO) in October 2016.

    Interview

    I interviewed directly with the hiring manager. He mentioned that there were three other candidates being considered for the position. He spent the first 30 minutes telling me about the company and about the internship role. The interview was quite easy and pretty straightforward. In all honesty, I ended up asking more questions than the interviewer.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Monsanto Company in January 2018.

    Interview

    It was the first step. They sent me an email to set up a call interview and after a week we were on the phone. The talent acquisition lady was very professional and nice. She started telling me what was about the call and the next steps. It took around 25 min which I believe is longer that it supposed to be but was very smooth.

    Production Associate Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Kunia, HI

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Monsanto Company (Kunia, HI) in December 2017.

    Interview

    I contacted with a Manufacturing Lead through LinkedIn (he was nice enough to accept my LinkedIn request and spoke to me on the phone for about an hour...I later found out that he provided a referral as well). From there, I applied online and was contacted by someone from HR to do a 30-minute phone screen about a week later. Following this, I had two back-to-back one-hour phone interviews with three-person panels. I moved to Hawaii about a month later and then conducted two follow-up interviews with the same panels on-site and was then taken on a farm tour by the hiring manager. About a month later (this was during the holiday season) I did not get an offer for the original Production Manager role that I applied for, but was highly encouraged to apply for the Production Associate role. I did this and was given a job offer for the position about three weeks later. I accepted.

    Hired through agency. The agency calls you for a phone interview. They submitted my resume and Monsanto invited me for a face to face. On site interview with members from team. Apparently all they used are behavioral questions.

    One of the most relaxed yet toughest interviews I have ever faced.

    They gave me a decision within 5 days.
