    Regulatory Affairs Manager Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Monsanto Company (Saint Louis, MO) in January 2017.

    Interview

    I don't think I have ever been this disappointed in a company before in my life. This was the second interview I had for a position after an internal candidate was selected over me for the first position. I had a half-day scheduled of either one-on-one or two-on-one interviews with various regulatory staff, of which the questions were nothing different from what is stated here (all behavioral/situational questions). It took over 4 months to receive a response after a thank you and follow-up email, and it ended up being an automated rejection. I think I was spoiled from my first interview for another regulatory affairs position here, as the hiring manager was always very responsive and told me that although an internal candidate was selected over me, she would recommend me for another position and gave me pros/cons over my applicant profile. I thought I had fit the job profile, but applying to further regulatory affairs positions has now led to this company sending an automated response stating that they no longer have an appropriate match for my skill set and/or experience at this time. For the series of interviews that I had this with company, I had thought that perhaps there would be some sort of personal follow-up. This has officially made me think twice of ever recommending anyone to apply here---for openly priding themselves on being a respectful organization, they should seriously re-evaluate their departments to see if that respect is actually being upheld. Perhaps Bayer can teach them a few things.

    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 online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Monsanto Company (Saint Louis, MO) in November 2016.

    Interview

    Recevied a request for a phone interview from HR a month after applying online. The phone screening took about 30 min and it was mainly about my resume and career goals. Hiring mangaer called me two weeks after that for a face to face interview. The interview was conducted by three panels, each panel composed of two people. more than 95% of questions were behavioral based and the rest were technical. To me it sounds that many of the questions were unrelated to the position that I've applied and many of the questions were repeated in every panel. And then after two months I had the result which was negative. I recommend before you go to interview gather information about the team and its dynamic. There are some teams that need someone to work (they need musle) and don't critize or question the status quo.

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

    Interview

    Interview went well, classic intro. No technical questions unless asking specific to his team. Otherwise entirely behavioral, which I felt was rather guided towards me. This was great because it felt like a conversation. That being said- great overall experience.
