    Plant Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Othello, WA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Syngenta (Othello, WA) in June 2017.

    Interview

    another waste of my time. i had interviewed with syngenta twice. once when i was first out of college as a process engineer, and another time when i was an operations manager. both times were a complete FAIL as its apparent to me that this organization hires socially inept people.
    this third time i decided to give it a go and not hold a grudge.
    that was a mistake.
    again, another lengthy interview process only to find out that were only seriously looking at internal candidates.
    like i stated, this company only hires the socially inept. and with good reason, as monsanto will be purchasing this company for pennies on the dollar very soon.

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a week. I interviewed at Syngenta (Naples, FL).

    Interview

    The HR recruiter was very professional, welcoming, and enthusiastic. The major problem, however, was that he did not follow up. Even if they are not going to offer the job, it is good to know you did not get the job, so that you can move on.

    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Syngenta (Greensboro, NC) in July 2016.

    Interview

    A phone interview followed by a 4 hour interview with 4 groups of people. They use the STAR technique for interviews (Situation, Task, Action, Result).

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Syngenta (Omaha, NE) in March 2016.

    Interview

    1st interview was completed with the contract hiring company, Aerotek. They asked several questions about my experience. After they found my experience to be sufficient, they then scheduled for me to complete an interview at Syngenta. Aerotek stressed the importance of being on time for the interview at Syngenta. The last candidate that Aerotek sent to Syngenta was disqualified for showing up just a few minutes late. I made it to my interview 20 minutes early and my assigned interviewer was ready and prepared for me when I arrived.

    Interview Questions

    • All the questions were very basic, but that may have been because the position that they hired me for is a new position for the company.   1 Answer
