    I have been working at ADM full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    It is a great company to work for with lots of opportunity for growth, as long as you're willing to move around. It is a global company that is not going anywhere and has a global presence. Small company feel within the Ag Services division.

    Cons

    Operations management positions tend to work long hours and 6-7 days a week during busy times (harvest or seed treating). This can be taxing, but is part of the industry.

    Advice to Management

    Prepare to work long hours during harvest season.

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at ADM (Decatur, IL).

    Interview

    Spoke with a third party recruiter who introduced me to this company and this position. A phone conversation was set up with the lab manager through the recruiter, was told the will "most likely" hire over the phone. They did NOT. Never received any direct contact information for the company thus could not send thank you letter or email. Waited a few days after the phone interview to hear from recruiter, recruiter set up on site interview. On site interview began with a half hour tour of the laboratory with descriptions such as "this is what you'll be doing..." then I was sat in a small conference room and was told I will meet with 4 people on the team. I was told by the first guy that this is a very entry level position and that I'd mainly just be doing a lot of cleaning and organizing yet the next few people did obviously not get that memo as they asked me incredibly specific questions I did not know how to answer. I left pretty puzzled, and heard back 7 days later from the recruiter saying I was no longer in consideration and I was given zero feedback.
