    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.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Monsanto Company in June 2017.

    Interview

    I had an initial 30 minute phone screen and the following week a 60 minute phone interview. Both included behaviorally based questions. I also had an informal offsite meeting in person with the hiring manager who was able to provide a lot of detail about the role. The final interview was on site and included three 45 minute panel interviews with two people in each round. The interviewers were both from the business side and HR. All included behaviorally based questions and left 5-10 minutes at the end for me to ask questions. I was contacted a week later and informed that I was not selected for the role. The whole interview process took about a month. Overall, it was a positive experience despite not being selected.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Monsanto Company.

    Interview

    I applied through Monsanto's website. I got an email to schedule a phone interview with someone in HR. They let me know a little more information about the position and went over my skills and experience to see if I would fit the position. The phone interview lasted about 25 minutes. I was then sent another email to schedule an in-person interview. This email also contained information on who would be present during my interview, and what type of questions they would ask. When I arrived, I checked in with the receptionist and watched a safety video. I was then taken into a conference room where I was interviewed by 5 people. They took turns asking questions. All the questions were behavioral, and they wanted specific answers and examples. This took about an 40 minutes. Once they were done, I was given a tour of the lab. I heard back after the interview 3 weeks later.
